I am a poet and I began working with Wi-Moto as a means to empower my stage presence. Working with Wi-Moto was pure joy. She has an ease about her that just makes you comfortable with yourself when in her presence. She is very attentive and passionate about the work that she does, I truly felt like she was routing for me in each of our sessions and constantly challenging me to go deeper emotionally. I learned so much about myself and the skill of acting while working with her.

Overall, Wi-Moto was very professional, She was always ready to work when I arrived and her studio space is very open with lots of sunlight and good vibes.

Wi-Moto is an incredible teacher

Wi-Moto creates a stress free environment where productivity is always guaranteed. After working with her for only 8 weeks my vocal range was expanded dramatically. She helped me snag the lead in my schools musical and worked with me on my college audition monologues until they were perfected. If your looking for a acting or vocal coach look no further.

We used Ebony this Spring to get my two daughters (ages 10 and 13) an extra boost of instruction prior to their dance recitals.

Ebony is extremely talented and knowledgable about all styles of dance. She was able to recognize each of my girl's weaknesses and focused heavily on improving those areas.

She is organized, punctual and extremely nice!

I would definitely recommend her as a dance instructor.

Ballroom Dance · In studio
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.
