We love Anna!! She has helped this (47 years) married couple learn to dance and have fun. She is so patient, kind, funny and talented. At our daughter's wedding we will be able to Swing, Hustle and Waltz the night away. We are so happy we found Lake Shore Dance Academy and Anna!

Anna choregraphed and taught us our First Dance for our wedding. Our experience was amazing from start to finish. She helped us pick our song and gave us good feedback and also listened to our concerns. Her classes were one on one and so much fun. We used our weekly dance lessons as date nights and it was honestly one of the best and most enjoyable parts of wedding planning. Both me and my husband were not dancers yet she made us feel so comfortable , confident, and made us look almost like professionals on the dance floor. We received so many compliments on our dance! I can't recommend her enough! She is an amazing teacher, she's so knowledgeable and bonus - she's hilarious and fun!

Anna was great! We had a fun time re-learning some dance moves. She really worked well with both me and my husband who was a little reluctant. He’s the one who decided to continue!

FAQs

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

    Our Introductory Special is a 45 min private lesson offer to new students for only $25. After that, we will customize your program, and offer a program package that fits your needs and desires. Package pricing depends on the number lessons purchased. During your first 45 minute private lesson you will work with our knowledgeable, supportive, and award-winning dance instructors. During your lesson your instructor will want to become familiar with your goals. Each of our dance lessons is customized to suit your individual needs and desires. We adjust our teaching style to your ability and expectations. We have learned that students who have specific goals learn 3-4 times faster.

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

    The process begins with an initial phone conversation about your interests in ballroom dancing. You will be provided with information about the types of dancing offered as well as discussing schedule availability. The first lesson is a fun 45 minute lesson during which we can get to know each other, learn some basic dance steps and further discuss your dance goals and desires.

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

    Anna’s dance knowledge is unusually diverse. She is proficient in, and certified by the National Dance Council of America to teach, all American and International Style Ballroom dances (Waltz, ChaCha, Foxtrot, Tango, Rhumba and many more) as well as popular social dances including Salsa, Hustle, Bachata, West Coast Swing, Merengue and others. She teaches children as well, serving as their instructor and choreographer in preparation for diverse Latin competitions and showcases. Anna also specializes in choreographing and teaching stunning customized wedding and special event dances.
