About Me

Welcome! My name is Sarah, and I would love to be your dance instructor.

I have years of experience teaching all types of dance, and I continue to do it because it's the best job in the world. I currently teach all types of ballroom dance styles, including:

General social dancing, both Latin and American
Competitive-style dancing, both Latin and American
Special occasion dances (First dances, Father-Daughter and Mother-Son dances, reunions and cruise prepations, etc.)

My lessons last either 45 minutes or 60 minutes, and each is tailored to your individual needs and situation. I always teach with both a short-term and long-term plan in mind to maximize the learning you get out of each lesson. I teach both couples and singles (men and women), and promise to allay any lingering fears or nervousness that you might have about finally tackling dance. Dancing is easy and fun, and EVERYONE should know how!

I am willing to travel to your home or chosen space, and I bring everything I need with me to provide a professional, fun learning experience.

Please feel free to contact me if you have any questions. I look forward to meeting you and learning more about how I can help you meet your dance goals.

Thank you,
