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!

Have you always wanted to dance...but never had the courage to take a dance class!? Then you're in the exactly the right spot! I am your go-to gal when it comes to learning to move! I love working with dancers of all levels! Wether you've been dancing since you could say "Mama!" or have never even thought about stepping foot on a dance floor, that is exactly why I'm here! Lucky for you I would love the honor of being the person to get you moving!

Thankfully, I have been dancing since I couldn't know any better so I definelty have a comfortable understanding of the dance floor! I ask 2 things from all my dance students and luckily you've probably already done the first...

1. Want it!...and...2. Do it!

The want will come from you and all I need to do is to get you to do it! So don't you worry all of this will come with a happy attitude! Dance is fun, so let's enjoy! I can't wait for nothing more than to see you on the dance floor...so who's ready!?

Online Ballroom Dance Teacher

Hello, my name is Anna and I have more than 22 years of the experience in ballroom dancing. I can teach Latin, ballroom, rhythm, smooth dances, including West Coast swing, salsa, merengue, Argentine tango, almost all couple dances, you name it. I have a huge experience working with the beginners with both left feet and with gold dancers, as well with pro dancers; I’m a national champion of my country and World Cup finalist, but as you remember: I have a huge experience with the beginners and two left feeters) I do believe in dancing, both: social and competitive and that’s why along with physical teaching I want to reach to everyone and share benefits of ballroom dancing)
Do you need to have a partner?! Preferably...but if you happen to be alone at home, I’ll teach you using whatever you will have around: tables, chairs, doors, etc.
Solo dancing?! Not a problem, I’ll teach you how to dance on your own
Wedding couple?! Great! I’ll teach you how to beautifuly dance together stress ...

Excellent instructor!! Great ability to teach!
Aliceann W.
We are complete novices for ballroom dancing-- Anna was wonderfully helpful in connecting prior to the lesson and preparing to help us get the most out of the hour that we booked. She is energetic, vivacious and has a highly effective teaching style. she is able to break the dance down with cues and rhythms that are easy to grasp and remember. We will definitely go back to her for another lesson.

I used to dance back in Russia for a couple years but I forgot everything since then. I’m glad I found Anna who speaks not only my language but also Russian. Just for a couple classes I refreshed my abilities and decided to go further with Anna and this is my favorite thing to do on earth for now.

I have been teaching dance for over 10 years. In that time I have found that, regardless of what style you are learning, everything is made of a few fundamental principals and components specific to that style. There are only so many ways you can move your feet and body. By understanding these principals & components, you can then put them together in any order with different style to create different dances. By laying the proper foundation, students have an easier time following choreography, learning to apply their own style, and even keeping up with a class. Once a dancer has a foundation to work up on, I introduce new concepts in layers to help dances feel better and develop a nicer aesthetic.

"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."

"Sasha did an amazing job teaching my now husband and me our first dance! We now, not only, have a few beginner ballroom dancing skills but also some regular dancing skills we can take to any party. She helped make our fairytale wedding really look the part with a solid ballroom dance in only about 10 lessons! She made it so fun too! Thank you!"
