About Alexandra

While my resume is attached, I'd love to tell you a little about myself. My education is in Theater from both Boston University and The London Academy of Music and Dramatic Arts. This includes extensive training in acting, directing, writing, Meisner, Alexander Technique, production, dance, and entertainment history. After moving to New York, I quickly learned that my passions lay more in teaching performing arts rather than performing myself.

Teaching and helping others find tap into their creativity is a long rooted passion of mine. It began in Middle and High School when I was asked to choreograph the musicals in my town. I loved the challenge of visualizing a performance piece and explaining it to others. Witnessing a young person finally succeed in being free with their ...

What to Expect in a Private Dance Lesson

I will cater to what each individual needs, working with dance material you already know or teach you choreography to achieve the following:

-provide personalized feedback to help improve technical and artistic growth.
- give tools to improve and deepen your understanding of technique
- explain how to connect your expressiveness with your technique
- become aware of habits that hinder your technique or expression and learn how to change them

About Amanda

I have been a dance teacher in New York for 8 years, while maintaining a professional dance career. I am currently dancing with the Paul Taylor 2 Dance Company and on faculty teaching at the Paul Taylor School.

I have taught in numerous public schools through teaching residencies with Rioult Dance and Education In Dance.

Ballroom Dance · In studio
I was taking lessons with Ekaterina for a year. I walked into her studio as a beginner dancer, to make my dream come true. Ekaterina is the most talented instructor I ever met. She is not only very talented dancer, but also beautiful person outside and inside. I started with salsa dancing, after few lessons I decided to try other dances and it was the best idea. Now you will never see me seating down at the birthdays, weddings and events. I am very proud of my achievements and with out Ekaterina it would never happen.
Ekaterina is the owner of two beautiful studios in NYC and Hoboken, NJ. All instructors are very professional and very nice people, great service and good prices, they always have different promotions going on for new people.
So if you are looking into taking Ballroom and Latin dance lessons then Ekaterina and her studio would be perfect place for anybody.
Bienvenue dance center is a great place to have fun, relax and meet new friends. They changed my life.
