Westchester Ballroom Dance Studio's instructors all have more than a decade of teaching experience, so students might learn Latin dance from a three-time Russian National Dance champion or perfect the ins-and-outs of swing under a tutor who's toured with Wynton Marsalis. Instructors are experts at coaching students preparing to take to the floor at weddings. They're also passionate about helping beginners tap into dance's social and physical potential and readying advanced dancers for competitions, shows, and Nobel Prize acceptance speeches. After students learn their way around a new style's rhythms, regular socials give them a chance to show off rumbas and jives, often set to a DJ's beats.

The duo wins the trust of its students by creating a supportive environment where pupils can try hip-shaking samba routines. Specialty lessons take the stress out of preparing for weddings and cruises, giving pupils time to learn the basic steps with the undivided attention of an instructor prepared to fire a six-shooter at feet to prevent missteps.
