Teaching since:
November 2013

I was dancing and competing in Ballroom dances for many years and i learned that dancing can be very fun and help you to relax. Or it could be very complicated if you decide to reach certain level. But no matter how old you are and what experience you had, it's possible to become a dancer and enjoy it alone or with a partner every minute of your life. And trust me, from the moment you will be able to do first steps of rumba/waltz or any other dances- you won't stop!
Just tell me your goals and we will try to achieve them.

Olga has been instructing me for almost four years now. She has never once failed to brighten my day. I have progressed from a barely competent beginner to a very advanced dancer under her watch. I have learned so much from her. She is warm, funny, and nurturing. She has very special ways of making sure you always remember the lessons and materials. And she's getting married soon, so everyone give her congratulations!"

Olga taught us an amazing first wedding dance that she also choreographed for us. She combined Rumba and Foxtrot elements – with leans, dips and even a lift – into one unique dance that impressed (and definitely surprised) our friends and family at the reception. Neither of us had ever done any formal dancing before, but Olga got us to a proficient level in a very short time. Besides being a talented teacher, Olga is also very funny, as well as kind, and will make you feel at ease as you begin to dance, no matter your skill or comfort level. Highly recommended!

I took Rumba and Salsa lessons with Olga as absolute beginner. I was impressed how fast I learned with her. She is a very goos teacher and super nice person. I would recommend her to all my friends.
