Slawek and Denise started dancing together more than two year ago and are actively competing professionally in the smooth devision. After they entered the competitive floor, they quickly became one of the top Rising Star couples, including finalists at the Ohio Star Ball. Both Slawek and Denise love performing together, with each dancer bringing a unique dance background into the partnership. Slawek has danced for over 20 years in his native country of Poland, winning multiple nationwide competitions in Latin, Standard, and placing in the showdance finals. In the US, he continued his dancing in Rhythm, and after a few months with his previous partner, won the prestigious Manhattan Dancesport Championship in the Rising Star devision. Denise’s dance background stems from years of ballet, jazz, lyrical and gymnastics. She actively competed in gymnastics and performed in numerous shows, including the Nutcracker, Cats, and Madea. She entered the world of ballroom as a student at Arthur Murray at the age of 17 and quickly fell in love. Over the years, she danced Smooth professionally, winning several competitions in the Rising Star and becoming a National Finalist at the USDC. She also placed in the semi-finals of the Open devision in the Ohio Star Ball. Together, Slawek and Denise hope to inspire other dancers to follow their dreams with their big personalities and love for dancing. As current judges, coaches and performers, they look to bring more attention to ballroom dancing in the US and abroad.See more

Hi! My name is Stine (pronounces Steena), I'm an NASM Certified personal trainer who inspire and challenge clients to achieve their ultimate personal fitness goals. For 10 years and counting, I've trained students of all ages, levels, and physical conditions through barre, dance, sculpt, and yoga methods. I have completed 200-hour yoga certification, Barre certification, and sculpt and cardio teacher trainings, all perfect extensions of my experience as a professional dancer and degree in Dance and Movement Guidance from The Norwegian University College of Dance. Past and present places I have worked at includes esteemed NYC-based studios like Yogaworks, Alo Yoga, Athleta, Stuytown Fitness, and Body Sculpt by Jason Bayus, as well as to private home gyms. As times have changed, I now meet the demand and offer Zoom/video instruction. When I'm away from the studio, I can be found enjoying the outdoors, visiting my native land of Norway, performing and dancing in projects, and teaching wedding dances to engaged couples. I have a special warm spot for helping people with cognitive disorders and I helped run a nonprofit dance and music therapy outreach to patients with dementia and Alzheimer’s. I believe that engaging the physical body with mindfulness will help develop greater self-awareness and promote optimal health for everyone.See more

Q & A

Answers to commonly asked questions from the experts on Thumbtack.

What do you wear to swing dance lessons?

Swing dance is an increasingly popular style of ballroom dance with a dress code that reflects its roots in the 1920s-1940s jazz era. Although many studios don’t require historically accurate costumes for their private dance lessons, many dancers want to dress the part. You can wear clothes that are comfortable to move — and sweat — in, such as T-shirts and loose skirts or khakis. Or for an appropriately vintage look, women often wear shirt dresses with a knee-length A-line or circle skirt that allows for plenty of swishy movement. Men usually opt for a button-down shirt and trousers. The most important part of a swing dance outfit is the shoes. Both men and women can opt for simple sneakers, like Keds, or leather dance shoes, such as saddle shoes. Until you have several dance lessons under your belt, stay away from heels.

How much do dance lessons cost?

Adults who want to learn to dance, whether to prepare for a wedding or to meet new people, often enjoy taking dance lessons from an experienced dance instructor. Instructors may offer classes one-on-one to individual students or couples, or to small groups. The national average cost for a dance instructor ranges from $30 to $50. Some studios offer a discounted introductory lessons or group lessons, as well as package deals that are more affordable than paying for individual lessons. Some dance instructors will travel to the student’s home, which usually costs more, while others hold small-group sessions in their studios. If you choose a small-group class, expect to pay less than for individual dance lessons.

My fiancee and I had a very productive ballroom dance lesson with Ekaterina today! She gave us a lot of useful feedback and we got a surprising amount of practice into the hour as well!
