Introduction: I am an avid dancer and choreographer and have over 25 years of dance and performance experience in many styles including ballet, hip hop, jazz, musical theater, salsa, bachata, and ballroom. As a teacher, I am very good at seeing exactly what students need to do to improve their movement and articulating those things in a way even students with no dance background can understand. One of my greatest joys is sparking a love for dance in my students and watching them improve.

Private Dance Lessons

I had a great learning experience with Whitney. She teaches in a very effective way. My dance skills were improved and I feel more confident. If you are looking to learn to dance or to improve your dance skills, Whitney is the answer. Highly recommended.

I have been taking private and group classes from Whitney for the past 5 years. She has been instrumental in helping me to continue to dance after numerous injuries. She is insightful about movement and ways to adapt. I’ve grown in all areas of ballroom dancing with her guidance. Her attitude is extremely professional, always positive, and very encouraging. Whitney is an excellent dancer and a talented instructor.

I have been taking salsa classes now for over ten years from Cuba to LA to Santa Cruz and I have to say, Whitney is the best! I have hired her for several years now to help me figure out how to duplicate what I see in youtube videos of the greats of the salsa world and somehow she is able to do it. Her awareness of the subtle movements of each part of the body as we dance is amazing. And, she is a delight to work with. I always enjoy our lessons.

Whitney has fantastic enthusiasm towards her craft, and transmits it to her students. She always gives positive reinforcement with the ability to see how to help her students to improve without stress. When finished with a dancing session my wife and I feel energized and ready to go back for another lesson. I really encourage anyone who likes to give dancing a chance, at any level, to reach out to Whitney.
