Welcome ! I am so glad you are checking out my website.
My guess is that you are considering learning how to dance. Great idea !
Here is a little background to let you know that you are in good hands.
I am the owner of Simply Social Dancing.
I started dancing when I was young.
As with most young girls, my mother wanted me to learn how to be graceful.
Background growing up: Ballet, Modern, Jazz, African, & Folk dancing.
I began teaching partner dancing in 1989.
Subsequently, I taught and trained in several dance studios in the New York area,
primarily Dance Charisma, Dancesport and Dance Manhattan.
I competed in Internation Latin and Ballroom.
Followed by extensive training in club Salsa, Argentine Tango, and West Coast Swing.
Although my background provided a strong technical foundation in several dances,
my focus is on social dancing (not competitive style dance).
I am interested in the one-to-one communication, rather than performing for an audience.
Classes: Argentine Tango, Salsa and West Coast Swing.
I also enjoy working with wedding couples creating a unique dance for their celebration.
Everyone can be expressive and enjoy dancing.
There is the challenge of moving harmoniously with a partner.
Together, you respond to the different rhythms and feeling of the music.
Plus, you have a chance to meet new people in classes and at social gatherings.
I am proud to teach social dancing and watch how it brings enjoyment to the lives of everyday people.
My husband and I took wedding dance classes for our first dance. It was totally worth it. We learned more than we expected. We didn’t just learn about the dance, but about ourselves as a new couple, about posture and it was a great quality time together. - Natalia & Jake
