Dance is music made visible.

My teaching is around dancing and musicality rather than particular dance styles although I can cater to the needs of the customer.

I have a broad experience on varied dances. I have trained in Los Angeles and San Francisco and I have attended numerous festivals. I have always focused on free style dancing and connecting with the music. Later on, I trained for salsa, bachata, hip hop and heels.

Rachel is extremely knowledgeable about dance fundamentals. I am new to dancing and Rachel was already able to help me feel comfortable with freestyling and self expression in our first session. I look forward to our future lessons together!
Hugo
She is really talented and passionate about dancing. She has a very hands on approach to dancing from the first minute. I really enjoyed her style, enthusiasm and caring about my dance learning.
Mike
As a new dancer I was nervous, self conscious, and overthinkinh everything. Rachel was able to break down all of that apprehension and show me how fun dancing was! I would 100% reccomend Rachel as a teacher.

Private Salsa Dancing Teacher

You found me! Welcome. My name is Eleonora, please allow me to tell you why I am your home for true dance and connection lessons.

I competed in International Ballroom Latin Dance from the age of 8-18. When attending NYU I began to teach and choreograph in nyc studios. Everything from self confidence dance lessons, to wedding dance choreography. Private and group lessons.

I quickly noticed the immensely therapeutic effects of taking dance lessons for my students, everything from self esteem to confidence to take their partner onto the dance floor. As well as building trust in connection. I became a dance therapist in 2007 and have been working with it since.

But I LOVE partner dance. So I offer everything from;

Ballroom & Latin:
Waltz, tango, cha cha, rumba, samba, jive

Social Latin: salsa, bachata, merengue

Swing, Charleston

Blues

Sultry Slow Blues

Fusion

Dance therapy

Couples dance connection

Couples therapy through dance

Excellent first lesson.

My wife and I took classes with Eleonora and as a first time dancer in older age I was very comforted by her demeanor and style. Highly recommend.

Eleonora is an amazing teacher! She is great at helping you get comfortable dancing, either alone or with a partner. She has such a gentle and kind demeanor that makes dancing seem so easy. And she is super fun to dance with!

Learn to dance for your wedding, social dancing, or just for a fun way to stay active! I teach several styles of Latin and Ballroom dance.

My lessons focus on connecting with your partner and being in tune with his or her movements. A proper connection makes it easy to quickly learn new steps, and to move together as naturally as possible.

For online/video lessons: You might think a partner dance would be hard to learn online; to learn to lead or follow well, it's important to have tactile feedback in order to feel the relationship between your movement and the results from your partner, and vice versa.

However, with attention to body mechanics and a focus on alignment and movement technique, you can still learn a lot online. Especially if the thought of group classes is intimidating for you, starting with online lessons can help you learn some basics at your own ...

Melissa has filled all our expectations and more! She is a great virtual teacher and it feels like she is actually there teaching you. She has been helping us with our first dance off wedding and we just completed our 5th lesson: we already have a lift, diol, multiple turns, and feel comfortable with this dance!

Melissa is an awesome teacher, very patient, skilled and insightful. I would highly recommend selecting her if you have the chance!

Hi, there! My name is Stephanie and I look forward to working with you. Salsa - Latin dancing is so much fun and can be as laid back or as energetic as you want....

I teach both Salsa on 1 and on 2 - very similar and yet very different in mannerisms. And let's not forget the Merengue, and Bachata.

I've been teaching private lessons since 2008 and have loved helping my students feel good about what they are learning, and accomplishing the goals they set forth.

Stephanie is an absolute pleasure to learn from. She is kind and competent and will very quickly have you at a level where you can comfortably dance on your own.

She is a genuinely nice person and takes the time to learn the way that you learn so that she can teach you in a manner best suited to the way you learn. I had so much fun in my first few lessons with Stephanie leading up to a trip where I wanted to be able to do some swing dancing with friends. On the first day I briefly outlined my objectives with her and over the next handful of lessons we achieved them all. I am so happy to I decided to move forward with Stephanie and look forward to being her student for a long time!
Erika
Stephanie is amazing. She is so sweet and patient and I highly recommend her and her class. She is very talented and knowledgeable for the advanced dancer and she also explains and demonstrates the dance steps in an easy to understand way for complete beginners like myself.

Elodie is so easy to work with. I just finished my first lesson and she was patient and made me feel very comfortable and confident. I really like her approach: No judgement, focus on deliberate movements and is very methodical. I was not looking for anything quick and dirty, but I definitely wanted to make sure that I learned. And, I did. Posture, arm movements, transitions. I am so excited and am very happy to have made the package purchase.

Steven is the best! He's a great (and really fun) teacher. Our beginner swing-dance lessons were excellent -- highly recommended.
Katherine & Karl H.
Steven was very patient with us. Although we are in our 60’s it was our first dance lesson. So fun!! Looking forward to next week for sure. In the meantime I might need some steel toed shoes. Lol!
Gregory T.
Steven was just awesome! He's so positive and fun. He's super patient, and his way of teaching is very clear. He follows the pace my wife and I wanted, and tailored what we learned to what we liked. We didn't know what we would like, but he helped us figure that out too! I highly recommend Steven.

"After meeting a girl that knows how to Salsa, I was compelled to find a class and learn the basics as soon as possible.
I'm super impressed with how simple Mercy was able to guide me via online video chat! She made me feel comfortable with myself which was a big step for me! (Pun intended). I was successfully able to learn the basics pretty quickly and with consistent lessons have the confidence to hit on the dance floor no problem!
If you're new and unsure, take the first step - worth every cent!"

I have taken several lessons in different dance's styles. I really value technique, and Rachel is talented. I bet she is.

As usual, best is to give it one try and to see if there is connection. In this case, the odds are pretty good..."
