Ferlyn F. San Diego, CA

Learn to dance with Ferlyn!

My History of Ballroom:
I have been teaching ballroom for over 12 years. I have experience in varied street and self-taught techniques in Waltz (Traditional & Viennese), Tango (American & Argentine), Cha Cha, Foxtrot, and Latin Ballroom (Salsa, Rumba, Samba, Bachata), just to name a few. My training is mostly through self-taught methods and passed down generational methods taught through mentors and cultural organizations. A few video credits can be looked at on my profile!

My Teaching Method:
I assess each students' levels, knowledge and styles of learning, determine the best learning paths to incorporate into the lesson and bring a "natural movement" approach of training and education.

With my method, this is to provide a collaborative & supportive environment as well as actively develop a person's life, culture and well-being. I strive to take a step further and deeper within the mind of the person who is learning dance and find one's "True ...

About Ferlyn

My Teaching Philosophy: "Everyone is capable of dancing, playing an instrument, and understanding music & art performance; it is the desire, drive, determination, dedication and discipline instilled within a person and the guidance of the Method that will bring these abilities to light." - Ferlyn I believe each and every person has a unique brand of movement, understanding of music, and learning style for any dance form or instrument. Whether it is hip hop, breaking, ballet, jazz, tap, ballroom, dancing for a wedding, birthday, or flash mob, playing the piano, singing or even learning the theory of music or dance, I make sure to bring out the best quality within your learning, expand that knowledge and encourage you to become your fullest potential as my student. I bring a different ...

Thank you for being so patient and understanding with Ksenya. She gets distracted easily but you were able to keep her engaged and focused. And she absolutely loved you and the lesson, and that's what is most important to me.

My 9 year old son has taken piano lessons with Ferlyn since September and she has been absolutely fantastic! He has gotten so much better since that time. Ferlyn is very good about rewarding and stern (not mean) when she needs to be. She has lots of patience. I've never seen her get frustrated or irritated with my son, which says a lot. Most of all my son really likes her!!!!

We are blessed to have two really great music teachers. Don't hesitate to signup for any of her lessons!

I was able to book incredible dance lessons with Ferlyn at the last minute for my friends who needed dance lessons for their wedding. Here is what they had to say:

"We had a little over a week before our wedding and needed to figure out our first dance. We went to Ferlyn for dance lessons. In 5 sessions we had our first dance down! She helped us build confidence in our dance. She is extremely professional and helpful. She allowed us to change up some moves and suggested new moves that would improve our style. We learned a lot of new techniques with great insight. Our first dance went really well and we definitely recommend her!" - Dang & Niki

I've received glowing reviews from them about that experience ever since, and they'll be cherishing that memory forever. I will continue to recommend Ferlyn for my other friends from now on! She won't let you down!

Choreography · In studio
I'm an advanced Hip-Hop Dancer wanted to learn different Streetdance styles, so I looked for somebody who is proficient teaching various street-dance styles like Locking, Popping, Krump, New Jack Swing, Waacking etc.. I gave Tibor a shot, because he got intensively trained with one of the progenitors of Street-Dance, called Shabba Doo (Star of the movies Breakin', Original Locker, Soul Train Gang Member...). I was surprised that Tibor was able to teach me a lot I didn't know, even as an advanced Choreography Dancer. I learned a lot about the history of street-dance and the history of the steps. The technique he learned in all these styles are from the Original Generation, meaning that he learned from the creators of street-dance. I can just recommend him to anybody out there who wants to learn more about real street-dance!

I was taking lessons with Ekaterina for a year. I walked into her studio as a beginner dancer, to make my dream come true. Ekaterina is the most talented instructor I ever met. She is not only very talented dancer, but also beautiful person outside and inside. I started with salsa dancing, after few lessons I decided to try other dances and it was the best idea. Now you will never see me seating down at the birthdays, weddings and events. I am very proud of my achievements and with out Ekaterina it would never happen.
Ekaterina is the owner of two beautiful studios in NYC and Hoboken, NJ. All instructors are very professional and very nice people, great service and good prices, they always have different promotions going on for new people.
So if you are looking into taking Ballroom and Latin dance lessons then Ekaterina and her studio would be perfect place for anybody.
Bienvenue dance center is a great place to have fun, relax and meet new friends. They changed my life.

Nghi T. Cambridge, MA

I've been teaching ballroom dance for 4 years, specializing in beginners and wedding couples. Many of my students have also gone on to doing showcases and competition. Within the first few lessons, students will be able to dance basic patterns in at least 2 styles and as time goes on they'll be able to master the more intermediate steps in several dances. Specializing in American Rhythm but also teaching American Smooth, I am certified by DVIDA (Dance Vision International Dance Association), and typically use a DVIDA styled lesson plan as a teaching aid. I work full time as a ballroom dancer, training with my professional partner 5 days a week and teaching on my days off. I have a genuine love and passion for what I do, and cannot wait to share this with my students!

I had a couple lessons with Nghi in Latin. I was a bit worried that I would not get the steps right away, but she broke the steps down very well and I was able to learn the routines that she taught. She is very patient, has a positive attitude, and an excellent instructor, and a GREAT rhythm dancer. I I would recommend anyone to take lessons with Nghi. You'll learn a lot from her and become a great dancer.

My daughter wanted to learn how to ballroom dance for her schools semi formal. We took ten private lessons from her over the course of 3 months. My daughter was able to learn how to lead and follow in two different styles in several different dances. My daughters date for the semi formal already knew how to ballroom dance so the two had a great time at the event. Nghi was very patient and experienced. She made it fun and exciting for my daughter to learn and we have recommended her to others interested in learning ballroom dance.

I used to take ballroom lessons from Fred Astaire when I was in my 20's but haven't danced in over twenty something years. I was referred to Nghi by my community center friends who have been taking group classes with her at her studio. She was good at explaining patterns and demonstrating technique and is able to make you feel very much at ease. In addition to her private lessons her group lessons at her studio are so much fun! I would highly recommend her no matter what your dance level is.
