    Larisa is a very good dance instructor - she teaches every genre. She observes, she catches your mistakes and works with you at all times. I take both group and private salsa lessons with her - I highly recommend private lessons if you wish to develop your skills quicker.

    Larisa is super easy to work with and easy going. She pays attention to the technique and explains all moves very thoroughly as she really knows how to teach. She takes dance seriously, but at the same time she knows how to make sure all students have fun at her lessons. I highly recommend taking classes with Larisa!

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

Hi everyone! My goal to make you comfortable and confident on a dance floor from the very first lesson!
