Excels at teaching

2015 April
Karen Lim

Not everyone who can dance can teach.  Oksana is not just a wonderful and inspiring dancer – she also excels at teaching.  She is able to communicate her vast knowledge in ways that translate into great results in her students’ dancing, whatever their individual goals may be.  With her instruction, my footwork, body movement, balance, partner work, and more have greatly improved!

 

Having been Oksana’s student for a number of years, I can say that each class is insightful, challenging, and most of all, rewarding.  In both group and private classes, she has a very clear and precise way of teaching, with an approach that is both analytical and intuitive, and is a dedicated instructor/coach who really looks out for her students.  Thank you for your untiring professionalism, commitment, and compassion.

It’s about feeling it..

In the front row of Oksana Latynina’s dance class, the students aren’t just going through the motions as Oksana demonstrates how to move not only with precision, but with beauty. “Whether we’re making you a social dancer, or concentrating on competitive dance, or wedding dance or especially performance,” she says, “it’s not just do this, this, and this… it’s about feeling it.”

Wonderful Dance Teacher

She gives the children the guidance and support they need to develop the rhythm, feeling and technique to be confident ballroom dancers at the very yound age. It’s a pleasure for my son to dance at Oksana Dance school. Thank you very much for all your hard work!
