About this pro

I teach private ballroom, salsa, swing, and country western dance lessons. I specialize in Wedding dance couples that want something special for their first dance. I am great at catering to my student's particular dance needs. Never met anyone I couldn't teach how to dance!

I love seeing the happiness on people's faces when the dance "clicks"! Dance brings such joy to people and it brings me joys spreading around the love of dance!

    It was a wonderful experience! Lisa's classes are great, she definitely puts her heart and soul into them. She is not only knowledgeable in a very wide variety of dance styles (I have taken inline dancing and fusion classes with her), she is also patient and really cares about her students in any of her classes, it doesn't matter if it is private or a large group class, she will do everything within her power to ensure that every person in the class learn something (or a lot) regardless of their dance level, gender or age. Just a few of the words (so many do come to mind) that I would use to describe Lisa in her classes are: kind, patient, friendly, knowledgeable, fun and last but not least full of energy. In my experience taking classes with many teachers I have run into a few that are unkind, unapproachable, impatient or totally lacking any sense of empathy, I also have run into a few others who don't want to everything they can (perhaps they want to keep students coming back to them); Lisa is the opposite if that, she is always willing to hear, help and support her students learn and grow in a loving, approachable manner and she will never hold back any knowledge or tips that would help someone learn or improve their dancing. Last thing I want to mention about Lisa is that she is full of energy, a powerhouse really, so I guarantee you that at the very least you will have a dynamic class with no dull moment. I highly recommend Lisa and Ballroom Creation dance classes.

    Lisa is a truly amazing dance instructor I have had two classes with her looking forward to my next class. If you are thinking about taking ballroom or swing please please get in touch with LISA . ( She is truly amazing !! )

  • Jim Peace

    As a teacher, I have worked with Lisa many times. She is very good at making the material easy to understand and students love her fun coaching style.

  • Angel Torres

    It is always a joy to work and dance with Lisa. The ability to teach all kinds of styles and give you the confidence to continue to grow as a dancer. I totally recommend taking lessons if you are a new or a veteran dancer.

FAQs


What is your typical process for working with a new student?

Every student is different and has a different reason for wanting to learn to dance. First is to find out their goals. Do they want to just be good enough to dance socially, are they preparing for an occasion or do they want to compete. Once we establish their particular goals, I see what is their current dance level and how quickly they learn.


What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?

Ballroom Dance teacher at Arthur Murray's and Hollywood Dance Center.

Country Western and Swing Dance Teacher at Disneyland, Club Med, Denim and Diamonds, and Joe's Great American Bar.

Event Dancer teacher

Choreographer of Films and TV


What types of students have you worked with?

All students, from children to seniors! Professionals and absolute beginners. Everyone can dance!


What advice would you give a student looking to hire a teacher in your area of expertise?

Look for a dancer who is also a professional teacher. Many professional dancers do not know how to teach beginers or non-professional dancers.


What questions should students think through before talking to teachers about their needs?

What is their dance goal. It is very important for a teacher to know what you want out of dance.
