I highly recommend Uliana for ballroom dance lessons! My (now) husband and I worked with her recently for our first dance lessons. Neither one of us has ANY formal or ballroom dance experience, but she was able to patiently work with us through five lessons, and the end result was a fun, new experience that wowed our audience. I know that many of our friends and family were surprised that a. My husband agreed to do this ;) and b. We pulled it off! yah! We even managed to surprise the audience with one big move in the middle of the dance, thanks to Uliana.

She knows what she is doing and is a professional who is passionate about what she does. And, she is fun to work with. I really like her choreography - she stretched us a bit, but at the same time made sure the overall dance was something that was realistic for us newbies. She had interesting ideas and asked for feedback to make sure we were comfortable with all of it.

Also, we first tried Fred Astaire and did not like that at all! Fred Astaire was very gimmick-y and a total sales pitch. Uliana's prices are reasonable especially considering that she is the real deal - a professional, award winning ballroom dancer! Money well spent. Thanks Uliana!!!

I cannot and do not dance. I probably have two backward left feet.

That being said, I found that I am tired of being someone who looks on and has to turn down ladies who want to dance. I looked at classes, but realized until I can get out of my own head and loosen up the classes would never happen.

I found Uliana on Yelp and decided to try my hand, or foot so to speak, at individual instruction. She is very accommodating and we corresponded a few times until I could get my schedule lined up.

We immediately started on some latin dances, cha cha and salsa, and have remained so over the last month of lessons. I have taken two a week. She is very patient with me as I learn to move my feet. I am sure it does not help that I have not gone out in public, but that is not her fault. I believe a couple more lessons may get me over that hump.

I would highly recommend her if you want individual instruction. I am so glad I did and thank her for so much help.

Artem is a great ballroom dancer and instructor. I always benefit tremendously when taking a class from him. He explains steps clearly and is patient with you until he sees improvements. I highly recommend taking dance classes with him. It is always well worth it

Artem was patient and understanding with me while keeping things simple enough so I could learn the routine. Definitely recommend him if you are new to ballroom dancing. Thank you Artem!

I needed to come up to speed quickly for a ballroom event, so I had to find a teacher ASAP. In looking for such a teacher, it seemed to me that just about anyone who knows how, can teach you how to dance. However I have found that the truly great teachers have a driving passion for their subject.

After reading Dance Classes San Jose web page, I clearly saw that their team had that passion. I engaged  Artem for 4 quick lessons and was not disappointed. After finding out about my impending event, he customized a course and patiently guided me through it.

His spirit is infectious, and I gained real insight into the world of ballroom dancing. Although I had not originally planned on it, I hope to have followup lessons soon.

Uliana choreographed and patiently taught me and my husband our first dance song for our wedding. We both came in with minimal dancing experience, and she kindly and expertly worked with us to give us a dance that wowed our wedding guests. We had tried using Fred Astaire dance lessons for our first dance prior to discovering her and left after being charged outrageous rates with little progression. Uliana offers very reasonable prices and creates an unique dance based on your song choice, giving you a one-of-a-kind dance. She is very professional and a talented teacher. We highly recommend her!

Uliana is great! My daughter shows really good results after just 2 months of classes. The best teacher that we've ever had.

Thank you Uli for sharing with me the gift of dance. My “International Latin” dance skills have grown exponentially by leaps and bounds under your watch. Those wanting to change your life or those who seek to give the ultimate gift of joy to a loved one, I highly recommend taking a couple of classes with Uliana. Give it 4 classes and you will be hooked!!!
