Our Dance Program

At OlgaDNZ academy, we offer children’s and adult ballroom dance lessons in the greater Tampa Bay area.  We teach a variety of dance styles including Waltz, Tango, Samba, Cha Cha, Rumba and many other ballroom styles such as Salsa and Swing.  We start with the basics of dance: timing, rhythm, posture and body movement.  Our goal is to get every child dancing and feeling confident on the dance floor.  Once a child has mastered the fundamentals of a dance, we move on to more complicated things like dance patterns, body movement and body mechanics.  Many students will have the opportunity to participate in showcases and performances at the end of each semester. We are passionate about creating young dancers and believe that every child can dance if they are taught in a manner that suits their learning style.

Ballroom dancing is a team sport.  We teach teamwork, discipline, and respect through corporation of partnership dancing.  We have a wealth of experience teaching children and our Ballroom dance classes are structured in a way that every child achieves their set goals, whether these are taking exams, doing competitions or simply learning to dance. Parents see the results in as little as two months. We frequently assess each child’s ability and modify the class level as needed. This results in progressive, productive learning for your child and improved self-confidence and body image

Having the child at the heart of what we are doing, we deliver a joyous and inspirational experience that is enjoyable, easy to follow and, most importantly, has noticeable results on an artistic, physical, social, and emotional level.

Dance Fitness

Each dancer can utilize the many exercises, elements, and levels of Pilates to his/her unique needs. Traditional Pilates wisdom suggests practicing Pilates three times a week, but dancers can adjust that based upon their personal, cross-training needs. Olga often talks about, “Our goal of moving all clients toward a highly functioning body. However, high function for a dancer means something very specific. I will, without question, slow down to help a dancer replace inefficiency or imbalance with success and integration. It is one of, if not the, single most important thing to me about this work. However, it is also really exciting to share the body of the classical work that I learned from Romana Kryzanowska.” (Romana Kryzanowska studied directly under Joseph Pilates and his wife, Clara).


Ballroom dance teaches children skills to benefit them throughout their lives. It not only teaches kids the art of movement, but also, essential social and personal skills, such as respect for the opposite gender, self discipline and self motivation.
