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.
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.
Award-winning dancer Hans Schmitt founded Dance Boulevard back in 1997 as "The Floor." Since then, he has coached students of all sashaying abilities, enlisting the expertise of several instructors and the gravity-reducing power of NASA wallpaper to hold group and private lessons. The studio comes alive every weeknight with styles ranging from tango to swing, and regularly scheduled dance parties give guests and teachers the chance to schmooze between spins. Promoting educational outreach through rhythm, youth programs instill a passion for ballet, jazz and tap among newer generations.

Studio Rincon’s diverse staff of yoga, dance, and fitness professionals believe there are multiple ways to burn a calorie. On specialized sprung floors that help prevent injury, they lead high-energy kickboxing, Zumba, and hip-hop classes throughout the week. They also helm traditional Vinyasa yoga classes and modern YogaRok classes set to upbeat music, instead of the usual soothing sounds of a whale snoring in the jungle. For younger clients, the instructors also offer kids’ hip hop, ballet and tap, as well as small group summer camps. In order to be as inclusive as possible, the studio offers classes accessible for all ages and genders and never requires a membership fee, encouraging visitors to drop in any time.
