" Simply put, dancing makes me happy. I have always loved to dance and ballroom dancing has long been on my bucket list. Two years ago I walked into Vlad's studio and never looked back. I am not young, thin or graceful and none of that matters. Vlad has a true gift and passion for teaching. Each student is an individual and there is no such thing as cookie cutter teaching with him. I have learned to work hard and challenge myself under Vlad's direction. The words "I can't" do not exist for him and they eventually stopped existing for me. I am at a point in my life where I am not willing to sacrifice having fun and with Vlad I don't have to. Two years into this journey I'm still not young, not thin but in much better shape and a bit more graceful. Dancing has provided me with the opportunity to set goals, challenge myself and lose weight, all while laughing and learning to dance. Vlad's unique style of teaching with a combination of humor, challenge and expertise has opened the door to a whole new adventure of dance. Love it!"
If you want to learn how to ballroom dance I highly recommend Vlad as your dance teacher. As I am, you will be very happy ! Ballroom dance has changed my life in a beautiful way. I met Vlad six years ago. I was 50 years old and in a bad personal rut. Back in high school I loved to dance and feel my body moving to the sound of music. I wanted to have that feeling again, and I do ! Vlad is my personal hero. His knowledge and dance abilities were key to helping me change my life. He is patient, supportive and a skilled dancer. I really appreciate his humor and friendliness. He has gracefully challenged me and encouraged me as I work my way to reaching my dancing goals. Today I am 65 lbs lighter and in the best shape I've been in since high school. It has helped my self confidence in a big big way. I look forward to every dance lesson and they continue to be the highlight of my week. Thank you Vlad !!!
