Mariia is an awesome dance instructor and choreographer. My wife and I have taken private ballroom dance lessons for 5+ years while we were living in the SF/Bay Area. Mariia is passionate about her work and is great instructor...patient, communicative, and can diagnose problems with a dancers technique very quickly. She is also very responsive and delivers exactly what she commits to. We liked her so much that we already scheduled a follow up session with her. I recommend her extremely highly!

We had a great experience with Mariia. She choreographed our first dance, and we both liked the dance a lot! We enjoyed the learning process and the lessons. It only took 5 lessons + the first trial one. She’s very accommodating and professional. We’re 100% recommending to hire Mariia for your dancing needs!

FAQs

  • What is your typical process for working with a new customer?

    Every lesson start with warm up where we repeat all the basic figures of the Latin program (cha cha, samba, rumba, pasodoble, jive) or the basic figures of the Ballroom program (Slow Waltz, Tango, Viennese Waltz, Slow Foxtrot, Quickstep) After the warm up, the practice begins with a detailed technique like footwork, arm styling, posture. In the final part of the class, you will learn a new dance routine.
