A Home away from Home for dancers

We are very proud to be creating community amongst dancers at Napa Dance Club. Part of our commitment to community means that we host dance instructors. If you would like to take lessons please contact the instructors below.

Instructors

Sonya Gorski


Sonya was inspired to ballroom dance by her father.  As a ballroom dancer, her father started “training” her by putting her feet on top of his while dancing the cha cha rhythm.  For about ten years, she taught ballroom dance, performed at various fundraisers/events and competed professionally through the Fred Astaire Dance Studio, located on the east coast.  She has a master’s in education and applies her understanding of knowledge acquisition to help her students learn new steps and technique. Sonya brings out the elegance in her students while cultivating a relaxed, yet fun environment. 

Lesson Specialty:

Sonya specializes in choreographing couples’ first wedding dance.

However, she is trained to teach all smooth (waltz, foxtrot, tango, viennese) and rhythm (cha cha, rumba, east coast swing, bolero) dances.

To schedule your private lesson, you can reach her by calling or texting (650) 360-2410 or through e-mail:BallroomDancer0707@gmail.com
