I love improving peoples life trough dancing!
In the past few years I have taken many ballroom lessons with an assortment of teachers. I have never considered myself particularly graceful or good at dancing. With Vuk I have been able to progress rapidly and learn more than I could have thought possible. He is encouraging, when a lot of my previous teachers were not. He is knowledgable, and adapts his teaching methods to fit my learning style. He is accomplished and is a Master and Grandmaster in several styles of dance. He is sneaky and knows that the best way to make me want to learn something is to say that it is really difficult. He is fun, so I am able to relax and not be nervous as I was in the beginning. With over ten years of competitive and teaching experience you can be sure that you will be learning dance steps and styling the correct way. Vuk means Wolf in Serbian.
Vuk was my first dance instructor. I started at 60 years of age at a time that was very difficult in my life . He made things easier and taught me well. Gave me a solid foundation of ballroom dancing. Gave me the courage and strength to perform in a showcase and compete on the dancefloor. His easy manner and "you can do anything" attitude has not only made dancing a part of my life but has given me the insight to look at other thing that seemed beyond my grasp and try my hand at them. He is an amazing young man who is a great teacher and dancer.
I had a wonderful experience with Vuk. I had never danced before and he made me feel like a pro in weeks! I can't stop dancing and i am so happy I found such an amazing teacher for life! Would recommend anyone looking for a hobby,wedding or just to workout go see this guy.
