I've been to several dance studios in the Cleveland area, and I can say without a doubt that WHYM is the absolute best. Ilia and Maria Volokh, the owners, are absolutely phenomenal teachers whatever level of dancing ability you have. I compete at the collegiate level, and working with them this summer has truly transformed my dancing. Even if you don't compete, you absolutely will become a better dancer if you go to this studio and really listen to what they teach. They are the best instructors for social dancing I have ever met. Ilia knows how to teach guys to really lead and teach girls how to really follow, a trait that is rare and difficult to find in studios in the area. And as an added plus, the dance floor in the studio, which Ilia installed himself, is the best dance floor I have ever stepped foot on. The ambience of the entire place is absolutely flawless as well. The entire experience of going to WHYM for dance lessons is absolutely phenomenal. Their prices for private lessons may at first appear higher than other studios in the area, but if you actually do the math based on the instruction time, you get more time for your money at WHYM than comparable studios in the area. Add in free attendance at group classes on top of that (a perk that other studios do not generally offer) and the simply superior quality of their instruction, and WHYM also becomes the best value in the area for dance instruction. If you want to learn ballroom dancing and live within 30 miles of Chagrin Falls, you simply have to go to WHYM. It's worth the drive!

I have been taking ballroom dance lessons for two years. I have been working with Avie Klein on American Smooth and Rhythm. I just started learning International Smooth and Latin taking lessons with Sean Youn. Both Sean and Avie are experienced dancers and instructors. Learning the international style with Sean is helping me to excel in the American Style. Taking lessons on both is making me a better dancer overall. My experience with both instructors is a fun experience. Although I am now really spoiled and could not just take lessons from anyone!

Ms. Kate was my daughter's ballet teacher. My daughter not only enjoyed her experience with Kate, but learned so much as well. Kate took her time with each kid to find out what they already knew and enhance their knowledge and technique with each individually. With Ms. Kate, several of the students in class were able to experience pre-pointe and move on to the purchasing of proper shoes and preparation of En' Pointe. My daughter's response to writing a review" "Ms. Kate was one of my best ballet teachers by far!"

I have been a ballroom dancer in Cleveland specializing in swing and salsa for more than 10 years. I teach all of the six styles of social ballroom dance, which are rumba, cha-cha, swing, tango, fox-trot and waltz. In addition, I have six years of teaching experience with children and special needs creative movement classes and preschool ballet. I believe dance is the best therapy, leisure activity and exercise. I would love to share my passion with you and help you with your goals. I am looking forward to hearing from you!


I am a dancer that creates a safe space for learning while keeping it fun. I operate out of excellence and integrity to whomever I teach. Everyone doesn't learn the same, so I try to provide a variety of ways for them to "get" the movements/concepts that I am teaching. Having taught students both young and mature, I try to customize my classes to their needs while still offering a challenge.

I provide a tribal fusion belly dance with elements of hip-hop, yoga, rajasthani, and Bollywood dances. In this series, you will learn technique in a broad range of dance styles as well as basic belly dance vocabulary. Included in this, you will sharpen your skills using drilling methods, combinations and isolating various areas of the body. Included in this series is a variety of stretching, yoga, meditation and body (mind) awareness classes. Belly dance teaches alignment, lengthens the body and tones core and key muscles groups by using the body's natural gravity. You will improve and sustain endurance with a low-impact and high-cardio dance workout. I teach all class levels.


Brandon, at an early age, has been formally trained in ballet, jazz, ballroom, hip-hop, and salsa, among other styles. His performance credits include Playhouse Square, Quicken Loans Arena (Cleveland Cavaliers game), All-Ohio Dance Festival, and Medina Performing Arts Center, among other venues. Brandon has also worked with several recording artists such as R&B artist Felicia Walker, Lazy Bone of Bone Thugs and Harmony, and Bella Nae. Brandon's favorite part about teaching dance is the happiness his students experience when dancing. Brandon says that a dancer uses more than just technique; a dancer expresses emotion through motion.

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.
