Dancing has been always my passion since I was 5 years old. I love moving with a partner to nice music. The more i learned about the language of communicating with a partner on the dance floor, the more dancing became magical. My goal is to reach out to everyone who is seeking to learn partner dancing and show them the short way of learning the language and move on the beat. We teach:  Baroom dancing ( American Rhythm, smooth, International latin and Standard,  All the club dances, salsa, kizumba, bachata, zouk, country dances)  We spend  all the time either teaching, practicing technique, or learning about what's new beca ...

Dancing and teaching are two passions that I've nurtured for a long time. I started dancing, competing and performing when I was 11, and soon after graduation I started teaching too.  I've had great instructors back in Europe and also here in US, especially when it comes to salsa, bachata, Argentine tango, cha cha and swing. I also teach waltz, samba, rumba and wedding dances. As a certified dance instructor, I enjoy the ability to share what I know with all of you (even the people who are convinced they have two left feet or go to) in terms of moves, techniques and styles, but I will also make you love dancing even more and help yo ...

Dancing has impacted my life in many positive ways. After studying partner dancing and competing in it, my goals shifted back to social dancing. Teaching partner dancing and getting people out dancing is my current focus so my students can experience the joys and benefits of partner dancing. Because of my extensive experience dancing and teaching dance, I am able to get people dancing quickly and efficiently. I focus on proper technique and connection, giving a strong foundation in which new moves can be easily learned. I am particularly good with beginners as I remember how difficult it was to learn dance in the beginnin ... View Profile

Frequently asked questions

How much do dance classes cost?

Whether you need to brush up your dance skills or start from scratch, adult dance lessons will cost you about $50 an hour and higher, depending on the skill of the instructor and type of dance classes.

The average cost of kids' dance classes is anywhere between $40 to $160 per month depending on the instructor's accreditations, the length of the class and how many classes your child takes. Keep in mind some studios also charge a registration fee.


What is a good age to start dance classes?

The best age to start dance classes is three. While most formal dance classes won't accept kids younger than 4 years old, you should be able to find a class just for toddlers that focuses on creative movement, or pre-dance, which means letting toddlers have fun moving to a beat with their friends.
