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.

In my class the focus will be to tailor the movement to your specific needs whilst sharing with you all my knowledge to help you grow and achieve your goals.
We will work on your technique as well as your artistry.
A beautiful dancer doesn't only have a strong technique but the ability to embody a character and convey a story through movements.
All my classes are open to all levels, if you are a beginner dancer we will take the time to go in details through every moves, if you are more advanced I will challenge your technique and artistry but most importantly we will have fun sharing our common passion for dance.
I teach all my classes at my home dance studio with high speed internet and with a professional mic for you to be able to hear me clearly over the music.

It was a wonderful lesson and girls really enjoyed and learned a lot!!! Thank you Sacha!!!
Faith C.
My daughter had an amazing first lesson, after just one session, she learned so much. She is very comfortable with Sacha and super excited for upcoming classes!!
Gwendolyn Ruiz
Sacha is an amazing teacher! She helped my daughter to learn how to connect her emotions to convey a story through her dance movements, something my daughter was lacking at first but after a couple of sessions with Sacha, my daughter became a better at it. Although my daughter has great technique, it’s important to tell a story through your movements and Sacha helped her with that. My daughter has already been to 2 different dance competitions and has won first in her category and overall. Her other teachers, friends and family were amazed when my daughter danced on stage and they noticed the change in her when she performed. She had so many compliments. I will definitely recommend Sacha and will definitely be using her again for my daughter. Thank you Sacha!

I have been belly dancing for over 10 years. Taking classes with me, I can teach you how to move your hips, belly, arms to belly dance. I like to focus on each part and take it step by step until you are able to move your hips, belly, arms, shoulders, and face to the rythm of the music. I will teach you how to belly dance and will also watch you belly dance and correct your movements and provide you tips for improvement. My goal is for you to reach your goal of becoming a great belly dancer.

Belly dancing gives the female body legitimization to be "round", in contrast to modern Western cultural preferences for flat stomachs. The Belly Dance is identified by swaying hips, undulating torso, and articulated isolations employed in a range of dynamic and emotional expressions. Characteristic movements in the dance include curving patterns, undulations, thrusts, lifts, locks, and drops, and shaking or quaking body movements. The focus is on isolated movements of individual parts of the ...

My name is Beatris I was born in Denver, Colorado. My second language is Spanish. I study at community college of Denver. During college, I began taking belly dancing classes in 2005. This led me to join my first dance troupe a year later. I love it so much that I stuck with it for 8 years.

I have also had the pleasure of taking classes with other fantastic belly dancing instructors. I have taken other styles of dancing such as Samba, Cumbia, Persian, Hula, Tahitian, New Zealand with poi balls and beginner pole dance classes. My lessons will be in Belly Dancing.

I have performed all over Denver venues. I have been Belly Dancing for 17 years and dancing Tahitian for 4 years.

My style of belly dance is Egyptian cabaret. I love the energy of performing on stage. Dance has changed my life and makes me look forward to the future by teaching online or a location.
please join me.

Had a blast with Beatris. She showed me how to properly do a belly dance technique that was a bit challenging at first but with lots of practice, I finally got it. She's very detailed and takes her time with each step. I can't wait to show my husband my new moves for our trip to Dubai. Thank you Beatris.
Zoe
Beatris is a joy to dance and work with. She is very patient and encouraging with students of all ages, and is experienced in several styles of dance.
Charlotte
It's a joy to take Belly Dancing from Beatris Ronquillo. She is kind and compassionate and always takes the time to make sure one has learned the basic moves correctly.
Both my young granddaughter and I benefitted from her knowledge and skills. She not only taught us basic moves, but how to be graceful when using our arms and hands.
My favorite was learning how to use a veil and zills (like castanets) to help us feel the movement with our own sound. You'd enjoy learning from Beatris how to use your body in an interesting, creative way that's good exercise.

"Sasha has been absolutely amazing. She makes online dance classes surprisingly fluid and forms a real connection with her students remotely. As someone with a serious lack of rhythm and coordination, I can say I am enjoying myself and learning a great deal! Sasha has been choreographing my wedding dance and has gone above and beyond to cut the song just right as well as rehearsing all the moves until they are perfect. Beyond that she is teaching us the fundamentals and giving us a lot to think about and practice on our own, which is highly appreciated! Would strongly recommend Sasha as your next dance instructor."

4 Fundamental Tap Dance Steps for Beginners

Good dancers can make even the most complicated, strenuous techniques look effortless and fluid. If you've ever watched an experienced dancer perform a tap routine, you probably watched in disbelief as their feet turned into a blur of movement that seemed to move independently from the rest of their body. Sometimes the sound effects are even more impressive; when done well, tap dance is a musical art form that creates its own rhythm. Do you want to train your own feet to create this unique mixt …
