Introduction: I am a nationally ranked Latin dancer with extensive competition experience. Dancing since the age of 12, I have been actively competing at the adult level in the U.S. and most recently was ranked in the top 17 for USA. Some of my competitive accomplishments include placing top 2 at the 2016 Vegas Open Dance Challenge, top 4 at the 2016 City Lights Ball DanceSport Championships, and top 5 for the 2015 Emerald Ball DanceSport Championships. In addition to the 17+ years of dancing experience, I am also a seasoned instructor with 14+ years of coaching experience. I coached and spearheaded the competitive Latin Dancesport Team for San Jose State University, and then became a coach for the Stanford University competitive team. My dedication to dance led me to also pursue an education in physical therapy. From this, I have developed a unique coaching methodology which combines dance training with physical therapy, which helps to prevent many of the common dancing injuries today, and improves your posture and overall strength over time as well. I can teach all experience levels (little to no experience, and competitive dancers), large groups, 1 on 1 private dance lessons, wedding choreography, and I can do performances with my partner at your special events as well. If you hire me, I am certain we will have a great time! I love sharing my passion for dance, and helping my students reach their personal goals and achievements has always been my greatest joy!

I was impressed right off the bat by how organized, professional, and experienced Stacey is. She is incredibly talented and was able to choreograph our wedding dance on the spot, working around injury constraints and prioritizing the most important elements for us dancers without any experience. Stacey is also so sweet - I'm kind of sad now that the dance lessons are over as we really enjoyed our time with her. Highly, highly recommend!!

We learned our wedding dance through Stacy! She was very patient and always had great moves and ideas for us. We really enjoyed the lesson with her and would recommend to other people!

I don’t normally write reviews for anything but I felt compelled to write one for Stacey. My partner and I recently had an initial lesson with her and she quickly assessed our starting point as novice dancers, introduced us to the basics, and made us feel so comfortable. It is clear she is a total expert and incredible teacher! After the lesson my partner and I couldn’t stop talking about how much we learned and how much we enjoyed the lesson. We will definitely be taking more lessons with her. If you are reading this review and at all considering taking dance lessons with a pro, you should ABSOLUTELY reach out to Stacey!

Details: 26-35 • One person (one-on-one with instructor) • Salsa • No experience • Preparing for an event / performance • 45 minutes • Once a week • At the pro’s location

Stacey was awesome to work with for our First Dance Choreography. Neither of us were experienced dancers, but with Stacey's help we wowed our wedding guests.

We wanted to have someone who could help us with a "First Dance" for our wedding and we chose Stacey to work with us. We are so glad that we did! Stacey was a pleasure to work with. We only had a few weeks to prepare before our wedding and Stacey was very accommodating, and within a couple of weeks, we actually had the confidence (and with her patient training, sufficient skills) to pull it off. Even though we were under a lot of stress (with the wedding quickly approaching), Stacey made the experience fun, and she was very encouraging throughout the lessons. With Stacey's help, we accomplished what we wanted to do for our wedding dance, but we enjoyed the experience so much, we are looking into continuing lessons from Stacey. I would definitely recommend Stacey for anyone wanting to learn how to dance (or dance better)!
