Although Monterey Dance Studio is staffed by internationally competing ballroom dancers and a National Dance Council judge, it doesn?t cater exclusively to professionals. Rather, the instructors employ their collective wisdom to share the art of ballroom dance with students seeking to enter competition and participants simply looking for a sociable way to stay fit, have fun, and hold hands in public. Couples seeking training and choreography tips for their first wedding dance can also benefit from the studio?s private instruction.
Leo Sidorenko and Olga Agafonova started dancing at age six. They were teaching dance by the ages of 14 and 15. After an international competitive dancing career, they have opened their own studio in order to teach others the art of ballroom dancing. They offer a variety of techniques such as tango, swing, salsa, and waltz, and offer classes for students of all levels from casual wedding dances to professional competitors.
