My name is Steve and I have been dancing/teaching different styles of dance for 7 years now. I specialize in teaching beginners and I enjoy watching my students progress quickly and meet their goals. If you have always wanted to learn a specific type of dance but never knew where to start then I think my services would be a perfect fit for you.

I can teach East Coast Swing, Foxtrot, Waltz, Cha-Cha, Rumba, Tango, and Salsa. I also teach Wedding Dances if you are looking to look sharp on your special day!! Group classes and country line dances are available if you are looking to entertain party guests or host a reoccurring social event.

My services are available in all of San Diego County at any location you can provide. Most of my lessons take place at the student's residence but I am flexible as long as the student provides the alternate location. See prices below and I look forward to introducing dance into your life.

About Steven

My personality matches my teaching style which is laid back. I believe that everyone who wants to dance should have a chance to. I think that some beginner teachers focus too much on the technique and forget to make lessons fun and exciting. My biggest skill is helping beginners gain confidence so

My dance lessons will be tailored to you. Let me know what your goals are and what your motivation is for taking these dance lessons, and I will do my best to help you reach those goals. I teach many styles of dance - Ballet, Tap, Jazz, Scottish Highland, and Ballroom (including International and American styles).

I am passionate about all things dance and am excited to go on this journey with you.

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 ...

"We were a bundle of nerves as we approached the entrance. Sasha met us at the door, and immediately we felt welcomed and ready to learn some new steps.
She was friendly, encouraging, patient, and professional. She is a good fit for us.
We went home happy, with 2, 3, 4, and 1 on my minds."

"Elena was able to teach someone 500 miles away the basics to a slew of different Latin ballroom dances (salsa, marengue, bachata, cumbia step, etc.) In just a few lessons I was able to feel comfortable enough with the steps and timing to be able to dance in public with others! She was very amazing and was willing to accommodate to my needs as a student. She gave plenty of reference material as well as songs so that I'd be able to practice when not taking lessons. I would highly recommend her as a teacher to anyone who is wanting to learn Latin Ballroom dance, but doesn't know where to start!"
