Introduction: I am a ballroom dance instructor who specializes in wedding dance, private event performances, and dance instruction for students interested in learning social and competitive partnered dance. I started dancing in Ukraine at the age of 5. Upon moving to the United States in 2014, I been working in the Bay Area. I have over 10 years of teaching and training experience, so I am a highly qualified instructor in my field. Although I am a strictly ballroom and latin dance instructor, many other forms of dance interest me. In my teaching, I strive to educate my students on proper body mechanics and safe dance techniques. In my lessons, I establish a timeline with my students to help them achieve their goal in the agreed time. Together, we will focus on meeting your goals with consideration for your physical abilities, experience, and time constraints. My dance partner and I are 2022 US National Open Amateur Ballroom Finalists and rank in the top 5 in the country. We are also available for show performances and corporate/private group workshops. I look forward to working with you very soon!

Tais is great! She helped my wife and I prepare for our first dance. We learned a lot from her. She was prompt and professional. She showed us several moves that looked great, and helped us plan out the sequence. She was kind in her corrections of our form :) Tais was recommended to us by our good friends. We would also recommend her to our other friends who are getting married!

Tais is wonderful!! It was always a treat to see her! She helped me with both my first dance and the father-daughter dance at my wedding. She went above and beyond to make herself available. The choreography turned out beautifully. Our guests loved it! She carefully helped put together the music as well! She is a true professional. We started at a very beginner level, and I'm grateful she was willing to work with us so patiently. Even when we had doubts, she never gave up on us! Thank you, Tais, for your brilliance and for bringing such joy to our lives!

Worked with Tais for the first dance for my wedding and she was fantastic. We sent her our song choice in advance and she choreographed and taught us a routine that makes the moment feel really thoughtful and amazing. She was also really accommodating of our schedule. Highly recommend!
