I was pessimistic about this going in because I have not enjoyed dance lessons before this. Alina is outstanding and super easy to work with. My wife and I had a great experience with her and we are now the best dancers in the world.Oct 19, 2017Verified
Alina is a fantastic instructor and an all-around awesome human being. Around six weeks before our wedding, my husband and I decided that just swaying back and forth was probably not going to cut it for our first dance. Fortunately, we found Alina, who not only made us feel more comfortable being front-and-center on the dance floor—but made us fall in love with dancing in general! We were open to doing something different for our medium-paced song, and Alina went for it; designing dynamic choreography on the fly with multiple styles mixed in. Throughout our sessions, she was patient, fun, and flexible, quickly changing steps that tripped us up or added any unnecessary stress. By the sixth and final lesson, we had the full dance down and were excited to show off at the wedding! Needless to say, our guests loved it. Looking back on it, the best part of our dance was that perfectly captured our personality as a couple. Alina picked up on our energy and designed a beautiful dance to complement it. We enjoyed the experience so much, that we're continuing to take lessons! If you're looking for a fantastic instructor who's completely committed to her students, Alina is your girl.Oct 2, 2016Verified

- What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?My prices are affordable.
- What is your typical process for working with a new customer?The initial process depends on each individual, his or her experience (if any) and what student would like to accomplish. On the experience, please no worries, I have students who compete at various local, state and nationwide dance competitions, but I also have students who are very beginners.
- What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?I have extensive experience working with renowned dancers not only in America but also in Europe.
