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

Eugene is a fantastic instructor! He is highly knowledgeable and skilled when teaching different styles of dance . He takes the time to learn what your hopes and goals are for dancing and then pushes you to be better than you imagined you could be.
Teri
Eugene is a shockingly talented ballroom dancer. He is a strong leader and is capable of teaching lessons with an easy, yet highly informative approach. His knowledge of ballroom technique and etiquette is extensive, but most importantly he makes it enjoyable. He is one of the best teachers I have ever had. I enjoyed dancing with him and I enjoyed learning from him. He is a valuable asset to any student, novice or expert!
Melissa
Worked with Eugene several times both alone and with a partner. Standard Foxtrot, Rhythm Chacha, East Coast Swing, and Smooth Viennese Waltz, covering both technique and choreography. I am looking forward to future lessons in any dance. He is meticulous and fun! I compete Gold Bar.

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.
Aaron
Phenomenal teacher!!! Very patient, kind, and thoughtful...really helped me understand how to become a better dancer. Superb!

"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!"

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..."

"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!"
