My name is Andrew and I have been dancing for more than 7 years, starting with bboying in high school and then Latin dancing. I was a Ballroom Director for the student organization on campus during my college study, as well as joined the SJSU Ballroom Dancesport Team.

By combining theories with body mechanic, I am striving to ...

Online Salsa Dancing Teacher

Hello Dancers,

My name is Tatiana and I have been dancing since the age of two, and teaching/choreographing since the age of 16. I am very passionate about inspiring and helping my students become confident and comfortable on the dance floor. All of my classes contain a warmup, cardio, the lesson, and a cool down. As a teacher, I like to focus on fundamentals to build a strong technical foundation. As well as, play with improvisation to help pull out each dancer’s unique personality that will enable us to incorporate it into the movement. Last but not least, I like my work to encourage thought, reflection, and conversation in a way that embodies the love of Jesus Christ. Stay well Dancers, and see you on the dance floor!

About Tatiana

Tatiana is from Uniontown, Pennsylvania, and she started dancing in local dance studios at the age of two. At age 16, Tatiana began teaching and choreographing at Lanzi Academy of Dance. Currently, she is a senior at the University of the Arts (UArts) and will receive a BFA in Dance in Spring 2020.

"Andrew is truly a professional!
My husband and I are both novice dancers and Andrew has made each lesson fun yet very informative. He is very easy to work with, has lots of patience and has a firm understanding of all types of dance that he teaches. I never thought my husband or I would be able to dance and use real dance moves but with Andrews help we are learning a lot and having a blast doing it. We are learning specific moves and techniques all thanks to our great instructor. I would recommend Andrew in a heartbeat."

"I have already taken a lot of dance classes including Salsa, but only attending irregular group classes it was hard to retain the basics and my dancing got a little sloppy. Andrew got me up to date with basic fundamentals, all through this online course. I didn't have a lot of faith in the online format at first, but Andrew quickly gave me confidence he could teach me. He carefully observed each of my movements and was patient in helping me improve little by little. My girlfriend (who has a lot of salsa background and was embarrassed to dance with me prior to my classes with Andrew) noticed a huge improvement after I took just a few classes from Andrew. Thanks so much!"
