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 16+ years of dancing experience, I am also a seasoned instructor with 13+ 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!

Stacey was incredible to work with over 7 or so lessons - she choreographed and taught us the steps to our first dance song with patience and enthusiasm. She took two super beginners who’ve never taken a dance lesson before and made us look and feel amazing! Plus, we’ve discovered we love to dance together and want to continue dancing as a hobby! All thanks to Stacey’s awesome intro to the dancing world. We highly recommend Stacey for beginners or anyone who is nervous for their first dance - you will be in EXCELLENT hands!! You’ll be confidently doing the New Yorker, box step, and double spin in no time :) Thanks Stacey!

Learning our wedding dance with Stacey was the most fun and rewarding aspect of our reception preparation. Stacey helped us execute a marvelous dance that she choreographed from start to finish. She taught us all the beginner steps we needed, and then built upon that foundation through the rest of our sessions. She even helped us edit our song with our DJ so that it matched the dance perfectly. We are not trained dancers and she made us look like professionals. We practiced for nine sessions over the course of 6 weeks, and our guests thought we prepped for the dance for six months. She was amazing, and highly recommended.

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)!

FAQs

  • What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?

    My lessons are 45 min sessions, and during this time I will gauge the pace in which you are learning and we will go comfortably at your speed!

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

    I typically start a new client on a short, basic routine. From there, we graduate to learning to count the music, and dancing the basic routine to music. We will also talk about how to improve your dance technique, which will make dancing so much easier for you! I can work on lead and follow techniques for couples, and I also specialize in women's styling. I can teach you how to dance, feel, and look more feminine if this interests you! At the end of the lesson, you may take a video of me doing a summary of what we've learned, so you can take it home as reference if you need to review before your next lesson.

  • What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?

    I have been training with world class coaches, former and current world champions, all over the world for 14+ years. You may recognize some of my coaches from Dancing With The Stars, such as Karina Smirnoff, Anna Trebunskaya, Edyta Sliwinska, Alec Mazo, and many more! I also had the privilege to work with a dancing physical therapist for 2-3 years, and I was taught how to move the body in dance in a way that prevents causing injury, and improves your overall health.
