With more than two decades of dance experience, instructors Alex and Svetlana Ioukhnel lead a seven-person team that nurtures students’ toe-taps in a variety of group dance classes and parties seven days a week. Groups of 5–25 practice sultry swings in two hardwood-floor ballrooms, while others swivel popular Latin nightclub dancers in salsa sessions, or mimic the rhythmic steps of the forest's slyest steppers and best big-band dancers in the foxtrot classes. In progressive waltz gatherings, Alex imparts graceful steps that illuminate dance floors at weddings and black-tie events. Meanwhile, themed parties let students showcase their new moves and make friends, with exhibitions, games, refreshments, and prizes. Pass bearers mix and match Bravo Dance Studio’s class and party offerings so they can study one discipline in depth or meld numerous steps into one celebratory dance for successfully finding the TV remote.
