I have been a ballroom dancer since I was 6 years old. I started teaching dance in 2012 and I received top female teacher awards in Tampa Bay area for 5 consecutive years. I have helped numerous students to achieve their dream and be able to dance and have fun with it. I have prepared wedding couples for unforgettable first dances, I have taken students to dance competitions and helped them achieve high scores and placements. A lot of students that started with me 6 ears ago are still a part of a dance scene, doing performances and taking part in competitions or just being great social dancers.
I have been certified up to the highest level of teaching - the Gold program. I have attended numerous seminars and training programs for professional dancers, as well as teachers and business conferences.
I am a professional competitior dancing together with my husband Sergey, which gives our students a good motivation and is a great learning tool for them.
I am truly passionate about dancing and I know how to pass that love for dance to my students.
Ekaterina breaks things down into manageable pieces then puts them together to continually build your abilities. She keeps it fun and is very encouraging. The lessons are well organized and reinforce what you learned in previous sessions along with new skills. I’ve really enjoyed working with her
Sergey and Ekaterina are exceptional dancers and are very professional while allowing you the opportunity to learn a wide range of dances.....and they make it fun. We are an older couple and they are very interested in making dance an enjoyable experience for us. We highly recommend them for all levels of dancers.
The dance instructor was very friendly and made the experience very comfortable. She broke things down into manageable pieces and was very positive, making it easier to understand.
The first lesson with a new student serves to understand the needs of a student and set a goal for the upcoming lessons. Also, I try and understand how students learn and what they like so I can personalize their lessons.
