Dance with Stacey

From San Jose, CA
SinceSeptember, 2021

With extensive experience in national Latin dance competitions, I am a highly skilled dancer who has been competing at the adult level in the US since the age of 12. My ranking in the top 17 for USA is a testament to my dedication and passion for dance. Notable accomplishments in the competitive scene include placing in the top 2 at the 2016 Vegas Open Dance Challenge, top 4 at the 2016 City Lights Ball DanceSport Championships, and top 5 for the 2015 Emerald Ball DanceSport Championships.

Having danced for over 17 years, I am also an accomplished instructor with over 14 years of coaching experience. I have previously coached various competitive Latin Dancesport Teams, such as those at San Jose State University and Stanford University. My love for dance led me to pursue an education in physical therapy, where I developed a unique coaching methodology that utilises dance training and physical therapy to prevent common dancing injuries and improve overall posture and strength over time.

I have experience in teaching all levels of dance, from beginners to competitive dancers, as well as providing large group lessons, private 1 on 1 lessons, and choreography for wedding performances. Additionally, I can also perform with my partner for special events upon request. As your dance instructor, I guarantee we will have a wonderful time as I share my passion for dance and help you achieve your personal goals and aspirations.

Though I usually abstain from writing reviews, I strongly feel the need to write one for Stacey. Recently, my partner and I had our first dance lesson with her. Immediately, Stacey assessed that we were novice dancers and introduced us to the basics, creating a comfortable learning environment. As a highly skilled and gifted instructor, it's clear that she is an expert in her field. After the lesson, my partner and I could not help but rave about our experience and how much we had learned. We eagerly anticipate taking more lessons with Stacey. If you are considering taking lessons with a dance professional, I highly recommend reaching out to Stacey without hesitation.

Our First Dance Choreography experience with Stacey was simply amazing. Despite our lack of experience in dancing, Stacey's guidance enabled us to impress our wedding guests.

From the start, I was immediately taken with Stacey's organizational skills, professionalism, and vast experience. Her talent is truly remarkable, as evidenced by her ability to seamlessly choreograph our wedding dance despite the injury constraints we faced - all while prioritizing the most crucial elements for us as inexperienced dancers. What's more, Stacey's kindness and warmth made our dance lessons truly enjoyable - I must admit, I'm a bit disappointed that they're over. I cannot recommend her enough - an outstanding instructor all around.

We enlisted Stacey's help for our wedding's "First Dance" and it turned out to be the perfect choice. Working with her was an absolute delight, and we couldn't be happier to have chosen her. Despite the time crunch, Stacey was incredibly accommodating and within a few short weeks, she had us feeling confident and skilled. Her patience and guidance were invaluable during this stressful time, and she made the experience truly enjoyable. Thanks to Stacey's expertise, we successfully achieved our goal for our wedding dance, and we had so much fun doing it that we are considering continuing lessons with her. I highly recommend Stacey to anyone looking to learn or improve their dance skills.
