I want to thank Culver City/Mar Vista residents for welcoming and supporting our dance studio Culver City. So many times people from the area thank me for choosing to open our beautiful dance studio Culver City. They say it’s a wonderful service and are so pleased we are there. The support has been tremendous and for that, I am truly grateful.
Now, let me tell you a little about our staff:
Well, of course, there’s me. I opened the dance studio Culver City almost 7 years ago! Wow, how time flies! My goal is to run a business that promotes a friendly, warm and welcoming environment. A great place to hang out after work and/or on the weekends. A place for people to meet each other, have fun, feel support, exercise, make dreams come true and create life long friendships at an price that fits any budget. I hire staff who truly love to dance and who truly care about their students. I teach American Smooth, American Rhythm, International Standard, Salsa and Tap Dancing. I am a former competitor winning many championships including the U.S. Theatre Arts Championship.
Julie is our lead receptionist. She answers phones, schedules appointments, keeps the staff organized, keeps ME organized, helps keep the studio extremely clean. She refuses to dance for some strange reason.
Front department specialist. Aurora specialized in newbies. People who are stone cold beginners and need to take it very slow. She is incredibly patient and very in tune with a persons learning curve. Many of the students look for her the second they walk through our doors. She can make you smile and feel comfortable immediately. Her main mission is to always make sure you are doing ok and having fun.
Laura is our Salsa Diva. She is a legend in the salsa community and often judges many salsa dancing contests. Most everyone who is in the Salsa scene knows who Laura is. She is very vibrant and lively. She’s a great instructor who keeps the energy high when she teaches salsa classes and when we have our monthly salsa dance parties.
Rebecca came from Florida and started teaching at By Your Side a couple months ago and already the students are raving about her teaching style. She’s very clear and easy to follow when she teaches and very organized in her teaching methods. Many, many compliments about her already.
Alicia is a former competitor and excellent instructor. She focuses a nice amount of time on technique when she teaches. She is great with choreography, wedding dance lessons, group dance classes and all students in general. The students really like her and only have good things to say.
Now for the men…….
Reza has been with me the longest. You can read all the great reviews on YELP about how his students feel about him. He is truly excellent with wedding dance lessons and I feel that is his biggest strength. He has taken many dance scenes from movies and created very fun wedding dance choreography for several of our couples as well as personally customized first dance routines.
Michael is our youngest instructor. He is the most vibrant, lively, fun loving one of the bunch. We give him a hard time since he’s still learning the ropes. The ladies love dancing with him because ……well, mostly because they think he’s so cute. LOL He’s a wonderful dancer and great with the women who come in by themselves for dance lessons.
Rene is the class clown, but in a good way. He puts a smile on everyone’s face. Mine too because he’s my husband! Great leader and beautiful dancer. He can create dance lines that make you oooh and ahhh. You can almost always see him at the dance studio either assisting classes or practicing. He performs in many dance shows with some of our female students. The women line up to dance with him. He is best with new students because he is very easy going and has a knack for explaining the most difficult things and making them simple to understand.
Alex teaches International Standard Ballroom and Latin private and group ballroom classes. When he dances, people stop in their tracks to watch. The students in his ballroom classes enjoy his teaching style and he often puts mini routines together during ballroom class and encourages students to dance to their full potential and not hold back.
Current World Mambo Champions and Rhythm Champions. They occasionally teach phenomenal workshops for students of ALL LEVELS to help improve their overall dancing. They are incredible talents as well as wonderfully kind, caring people. We are truly blessed to have them working within our studio.
They are our out of this world Argentine Tango teachers. They teach the Argentine Tango classes as a couple which makes the tango classes twice as beneficial to students. They are fun, funny, talented and excellent at teaching.
Remember, there is no partner or previous dance experience necessary to learn to dance and we have a variety of new student specials available. There’s no better time to learn to dance than today.
See you on the dance floor!
TAP DANCING CLASS – LEVEL 1, 2 and 3
Tap dancing is a great way to get in shape, become more coordinated on the dance floor and feel the rhythm of the music. Tap dancing is recommended for all dancers no matter your style or ability.
We pride ourselves on having the best comprehensive and progressive set of tap dancing classes in Los Angeles. If you are a little nervous about learning tap dancing you may take the first tap class at our single lesson rate of $15 to try it out. If you decide to continue with the course, you can simply pay the difference of the full class course rate.
I am absolutely thrilled that many of our ballroom students placed first in several ballroom dance events at the prestigious Emerald Ball Ballroom Dance Competition held recently in Los Angeles. The Emerald Ball Dance Competition showcases some of the best ballroom dancers in the USA and attracts the best of ballroom dancers in the USA and abroad.
There were more than 15,000 entries which made this year’s event the Emerald’s biggest ballroom dance event to date. Competition is fierce on the floor and that’s why I am so proud of our ballroom dance student’s accomplishments!
Our By Your Side Dance Studio ballroom dancers participated in several ballroom dance events including the Waltz, Foxtrot, Cha Cha, Salsa, Tango and Rumba.
Our amazing ballroom dancers who placed at the Emerald Ball Dance Competition are as follows:
A fabulous job and congratulations to all of you!
