About Gina

(For the summer I will be in New York City and happy to take on students until early August. After that I will only be available to east coast students via Skype or intermittent) I graduated from Juilliard in dance and pursued modern dance and all sorts of theatre including musicals and music theatre and performing arts. I have taught children and grown ups for many years. I have a strong performing career and love the way teaching keeps me in a giving and learning place. *** Lesson Details *** With beginning students I am very laid back and patient and believe strongly that in the play of games and experiments technique will develop and manifest. As the student becomes more advanced I become more demanding as do the materials. As an acting teacher I have an advanced capacity to ...

Beyond expectations

From our first phone call, Gina became invested in my dance journey. From modern dance, to ballet and contemporary, Gina has guided me into a new world of performance and dance. Outside of our scheduled lessons, we are loosely collaborating on a creative project - something I thought was years away until I met Gina. She taught me tactical dance fundamentals while also helping me navigate the dance and theater scene in NYC. (with which she is very connected) The best thing for me was her flexibility with the learning process. She encourages everyone to make their own journey, never forcing too much structure but always being reliable. I look forward to continuing this journey. Thank you!

Gina provides a safe, constructive, playful, supportive, and judgement-free environment to explore and improve in.

I have been taking singing lessons with Gina for several months now. I have always been extremely self conscious of my voice but it's something I've always wanted to conquer. Gina has done a really nice job providing a safe, constructive, playful, supportive, and judgement-free environment to explore and improve in. I always appreciate how flexible she is with scheduling, as my hours are sometimes hard to predict. I really look forward to our time together. It's very therapeutic.

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.

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.
