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!

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.

I love ballroom dancing and I hope you will as well. I have worked with both children and adults for the last 30 years. I know how to make learning ballroom dancing understandable and enjoyable.

I can make it simple and easy to learn whether you want it for your own enjoyment or for a specific event like your wedding.

Although I love music, I don't sing or play an musical instrument. Dancing has always been my way to connect with and enjoy music. Moving to music is the ultimate experience for me.

In teaching, I hope that I can share that experience with my students.

Hi there,

My name is Petra. I have been a professional Ballroom Dancer/Instructor for the past 10 years. I have helped hundreds of couples achieve their wedding dance dreams and have also led students to win awards at competitions and of course, have made many people confident and comfortable social dancers.

Whether you're preparing for your big day, want to be able to dance at a friends wedding or are looking to burn up the dance floor in any situation, I'm your girl.

Online classes and in person sessions offered in Sarasota FL. I also have a close network of both male and female instructors in the area so if for any reason, we are not a fit, I may to be able to recommend someone else who can better accommodate you.

Thank you and happy dancing!
Petra

Each person learns differently. So my lessons are customized for each individual.Nearly everyone is scared to dance at first. You need only start. Simply begin; I can help with the rest.

I have been teaching dance for over 12 years. My students have won many competitions and some of them even passed tough exams to enter Dance Academy programs, colleges and universities. I am very passionate about teaching dance and finding the right "key" to every student. I believe that all of us are different in the way we process new information, the way we learn, memorize, get motivated, and progress. I believe in order to get maximum result in such complex craft as dance there has to be a balance between having fun and having discipline. Each class has a set structure, short-term goals, and long-term goals, and of course, we do have fun. I love my profession, I love teaching and figuring out how to achieve the greatest result with that particular student by applying aspects of sports psychology on top of standard methods, and I love seeing my students fall in love with the craft and achieve great results.

About Margo

I am a professional dancer, choreographer, actress and director. Born and raised in Moscow, Russia I started dancing at 4 years old. I graduated from Moscow State College of Arts in 2008 as a choreographer. In the United States, I studied different dance styles (hip-hop, house, tap, vogue, jazz-funk

I didn't expect that I'll start to dance hip hop so quick. I've been dancing ballet since I was 3, now I'm 14. I never had any hip hop training. Transition to hip hop was very challenging in the beginning but within a month of training with Margo I started dancing hip hop very well, better than most of my friends who've done it for a long time! Thank you Margo!!!
Penny
Margo is a wonderful teacher! She corrected my technique in no time, helped me figure out why I just couldn't do certain things (pirouettes). I love working with her, learning from her, she is very patient with me and always finds the right words to motivate me. I am very pleased

"My experience with Crystal has been amazing!! Crystal expertise in technical, ballet, liturgical, jazz, hip hop, and African dance is out of this world. Crystal took her time to show me (at the time a non dancer) all of those dances and now I am no longer a beginner!! Now Crystal has asked me to travel with her to several dance conferences. We have also done a few routines together! One of the venues was at the Phillips Arena!! AMAZING!"

"Michael helped my wife and I get ready for our first dance for our wedding. Without him we wouldn't have been able to pull it off. He helped us learn so much in an extremely quick time schedule (about a month before the big day). Everything was easy going and fun. All of us joked a lot which made both my wife and I a lot less nervous. At the same time everything was extremely professional. He always helped us choose the best ways to do all the moves and showed us extra stuff to add if we felt we could do them on the day of. Michael, from the little time we knew him, is kind, sincere, and downright awesome. We can't thank him enough for how much he helped us."

Contemporary choreography techniques help dancers harness the energy and emotion of their own bodies, resulting in a more fluid and organic form of movement that can appear effortless and completely improvised to the casual observer.
