A number of us basically dragged our husbands to the first class. Sasha is such a positive person and such a great teacher that our husbands all left saying "well, that was a good idea and we should do it again”! Thanks, Sasha!"

I was always envious of couples I watched dancing, as I sat on the sidelines. My husband and I would still get up to dance occasionally, but we knew no moves and I'm sure we looked and I know we felt awkward.
Signing up for Sasha's Latin Bootcamp changed all that. We are still relatively new to her classes, but even after just 5 lessons, we CAN DANCE! We now look for places to dance and have been out for the purpose of DANCING nearly every weekend. And having so much fun doing it.
And Sasha? Shes a great teacher.- makes you feel comfortable, has a wonderful sense of humor about the whole thing, and most importantly, can teach you to dance. Truly."

Sasha taught me and my dad lessons for my wedding, we had so much fun and are now prepared to wow our guests!"

Sasha is a talented and gifted dance instructor whose main purpose is to allow her students to learn to dance as quickly as possible so that they can truly enjoy themselves after just a few lessons. Highly recommend her classes."
– Charles and Lenore, Bergen County (Salsa, Merengue, Bachata, Foxtrot, Swing, Hustle, Cha-cha, Jitterbug, Rumba)
My now-husband and I reached out to Sasha 3 weeks ago with a desperate plea for help with our first dance song. Sasha did the impossible. She coordinated a whole dance, made us feel comfortable, and taught us both basic and specialty moves to wow our guests. We thought it would be a chore to learn, but instead Sasha made every moment fun, engaging, and enjoyable. My husband had such a good time that he's suggested we keep on dancing! Thank you Sasha for making us look good and for making every moment a fun, learning one. I'll be sending all my engaged friends your way!"

After a mildly embarrassing moment at a bar while on a date, I decided I needed to take some dance lessons. Sasha came to the rescue! I've been taking group lessons for over a year now and love every minute of it! We've learned all different types of Latin dance and even some electric slide. Great class, great people, and lots of fun!"
– Michael • Westwood, NJ (Salsa, Merengue, Bachata, Foxtrot, Swing, Hustle, Cha-cha, Jitterbug, Rumba)
Learning how to dance always seemed so intimidating, so I'm glad I found Sasha. Classes are always relaxed, fun, and worthwhile. She teaches dancing so that after the first four or five classes, you can go out on the dance floor without any worries. Her enthusiasm and energy are infectious, and I was amazed at how much I progressed in two months. Dance class was always something that I looked forward to during the week. Could not recommend more highly!"

It's funny, my first taste for Latin dancing came in a Zumba class, of all places. However, when Zumba-related ankle injury took me out of commission, I decided to take a friend's recommendation and try Sasha's beginner class. I feel in love instantly! Sasha is an amazing teacher! Not only did she get me dancing in a few short weeks, but I found a new passion. I was having fun, making new friends, and staying in shape. In addition to the group classes, I recently started taking her Styling and Movement class-- and all I can say is move over Zumba! The class gets me sweating, has improved my balance, increased my confidence on the dance floor, and taken my dancing to a whole new level. I absolutely recommend Sasha and Gift of Dance Studios! Learning to social dance is truly a GIFT! Thank you Sasha."

In one intensive week Sasha, and her fantastic students, have taken me from learning the basic steps for Salsa, Merengue and Bachata to doing combination spins and turns; and even some fancy foot work! You can look high and low and will probably never find a teacher as fun, energetic, bubbly and knowledgeable of so many styles of the Latin dances as Sasha. What I've found is that no feet are left behind in Sasha's classes. So whatever your level of social dance, I highly recommend checking out Gift of Dance Studios! I'm sure you will have fun, make friends and learn something new."
– Joel • Englewood, NJ (Salsa, Merengue, Bachata)
Sasha is not only one of the best instructors out there, but she is a life-changer!!! She's talented, enthusiastic, understanding and most of all patient! In just a few short months, she instilled confidence in me that I never dreamed possible! I am EXTREMELY grateful to have had her as a trainer all these years...She's definitely helped change me in more ways than one! To say she is one of the best is certainly incorrect! Sasha is THE best. Give it a try and see for yourself! Her first class is on her! and then the rest will be history!"
