Hi, there! My name is Stephanie and I look forward to working with you. Ballroom dancing has so many facets within itself and is so much fun to learn the difference....

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!

Private Ballroom Dance 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

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!

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.

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 ...
