About Yuliya
I am a Bay Area based dance instructor, singer, performer, model, and health nut who is hoping to give you the tools to burn up the floor with some spicy, hot moves.

I grew up with the flavor of Latin music and dance surrounding me, and I want to help you find your own personal flare. Whether it be on the dance floor, on the stage, or in the comfort of your own home, I want to help you find your own personal flavor.

I will help you build your strength as a dancer, showing you important body isolation and stretching techniques, while also helping you understand the fundamentals to partner-work and personal styling shines needed to social dance.

More importantly, I will help you understand the rhythmic structure in Latin music, so you can feel the music as you dance.

My clients range from one-on-one private lessons, partner less
ons, and group lessons. I teach styles from Dominican/ Urban/ Romantic Bachata to Salsa ( on 1 and on 2), Latin Jazz, Burlesque, Hip Hop, Modern, Ballet, Merengue, Kizomba, Banda etc.

I work as a tutor and mentor in many of those fields for years. It was and is a side business, but I always enjoyed teaching.
I am looking forward to move on with you and / or your kids.
Have a great day,

Update 02/10/15: Takelessons is a great way to teach and a fantastic and easy way to learn for students. I currently have 3 students per week, with several hours. I really enjoy it, either online via Skype or Facetime or Live at the students place. Hit me up and let's move something together.

Excellent teacher. We took a 20'x2' section of "dirt" in the back, redid the soil, transplanted a rose in that section, added two other new roses and a bunch of ground cover. Looks great! Recommended.

I did not actually take any lessons with him, but his schedule did not reflect what showed as available in Takelessons. He had a very bad attitude and would not actually schedule the lesson after several exchanges.

I need to improve my spoken German for business and Marcel has been invaluable in helping me improve at a good pace while being incredibly flexible on lesson planning.

I've been working with him for about a month now and I've grown to feel more comfortable speaking with my colleagues who are native German speakers.

If you want a native, professional teacher who can be fun...Marcel is your guy.

About Lorena
Ciao! I am a native Italian living in the USA for several years now.
My background is in foreign languages and I love traveling and meeting new people. I studied English and French in Italy before spending two years in England working and studying to perfectionate English where I also learned conversational Spanish.
Once in the USA I started working in the information technology field for a company that had a branch in Italy. I had to assist, translate and teach different materials in Italian and I also did some freelancing tutoring.
I have three children and I also speak and teach Italian to them only. It has been fun to see them being comfortable in speaking Italian when we go to Italy. I try to travel to Italy at least once a year.

My other passion is cooking and baking. I was lucky that I grow up with both my parents
as excellent cooks. We had a vegetable garden, fruit trees and livestocks so most of the ingredients were fresh. I started cooking a lot when I moved to USA as I missed the Italian dishes very much and I realized my only connection to my country was via the food.

I also have a love for fashion! Growing up in Italy means being surrounded by beauty everywhere.. the marvelous architecture and art, the language and music, the beautiful landscapes, the fruits of nature and the fashion! I believe because of this most Italians develop a sense of style. When I moved here I realized how much harder was to find unique clothes and accessories so I enjoy the challenge to put together outfits with what I have available.

Lorna was great baking with my 12 year old grandson. He was awaiting hip surgery so the class was a great distraction for him and the end product a beautiful chocolate cake to take home was a fun reward.
Lorna was very well prepared, had all the ingredients and tools laid out, let my grandson do much of the work measuring, mixing etc and even had baked a similar cake the night before so there would be a cool cake to frost and decorate.
His review: it was great.

After you have experienced a cooking lesson with Lorena you will feel like you have visited Venice Italy.
Her birth place. Lorena will share simple, healthy recipes you will use for a lifetime. I learned so much from her and I'm already a glorified chef. Her signature dishes with all the Venetian secrets can be revealed in her kitchen or yours. She's a very good listener and will adapt to what your family likes to eat. I will continue my lessons after the New Year... wanting to pare wine with the food . Another hidden talent .thank you Lorena

About Arlene
Hi! I'm Arlene Banks! I'm 37 years young, married to a wonderful God fearing man, and the mother to an amazing and very smart 11 year old prince! I absolutely love my family, my life and what I do! I would love to teach you all about how I create beauty! I have been into beauty since the tender age of 13! I started working out of my parent's kitchen doing hair and makeup at that age! It all came natural just by watching my mom do her hair and makeup all the time! So I followed in her footsteps and turned it into a business! At 13 I created my own flyers, price list, and schedule! By the time I graduated as a senior from high school I had accumulated lots of clients because my talent sold itself and I had accrued 1000 hours in Cosmetology because it was offered in HS! I started working in a salon at 16 under an apprenticeship as a shampoo
tech and learning the ins and outs of a salon and booth rental, after a few years of that I got very good at my craft and that's when the big bucks started to roll in and I got really serious about my growing business! I went to cosmetology school after graduating high school and finished getting my 500 hours I needed to obtain my license, well, I took the exam and passed the 1st time!! I was so happy!! Simply because I loved making others feel even more beautiful than what they already are! With my skills and professional talent I've won 1st place in my very 1st hair show and $1000(Milky Way Hair Show), I've been featured in 3 beauty magazines with 2 models that made the cover, I opened a small salon, working alone, which nearly brought in 6 figures in a year from my timely private appointments and expertise, and I've also done work for a movie on set! I absolutely love what I do and how my talent speaks for itself! I'm excited to teach you what I know that can help you enhance your beauty day to day!! Well what are you waiting for? Time is of the essence...class will begin shortly, don't be late! See you soon! Let's get started!

I really enjoyed Arlene's makeup lessons! I learned so much about makeup and I'm excited to book her again to learn more. I'm excited to know how to do the basics of makeup. I feel more comfortable applying my own makeup since Arlene showed me her quick tricks. I feel beautiful and confident! My makeup looks amazing! Can't wait until the next lesson to learn eyeshadow! Thanks Arlene! You're the best and so much fun!

Arlene helped me become so much more comfortable with applying make up for both every day and special occasions! I used the tips she gave me to create a look for a night out and got SO many compliments! She is very sweet and patient and really knows her stuff.

My experience with Arlene was amazing. She’s a great instructor, she’s very patient and explained all the steps in detail so that I can remember. I have received so many compliments on my makeup work that I’ve done since taking the course with Arlene. She’s amazing and you definitely need to book your classes with Arlene.
