Larisa Bates


Private Dance Lessons

Larisa is available for group or private lessons at any level, whether you are interested in learning to dance socially, prepare for a wedding or quinceañera dance, or if you want to compete.
Students may learn with or without their own partner. Larisa is, also, available for private or corporate events. Options are as simple as a group lesson to get the party guests mingling to back-up dancers to supplement a wedding dance to an elaborate professional performance.

Larisa Bates has been dancing since she was 5 years old, has competed in such ballroom competitions as the Emerald Ball and the Embassy Ball and has won over 100 first place awards. She is proficient in 20 different styles of partnership dance ranging from the standard ballroom styles of Foxtrot, Waltz, and Tango to the rhythmic styles of Salsa, Cha Cha, and Swing to lesser know styles such as the Paso Doble, Two-step, and even Polka!
