Unsure about a Zoom Virtual Session?

It may seem intimidating, but virtual Zoom sessions are breaking barriers in society these past few weeks we have been in isolation.  Open yourself up to the new opportunities that await and learn more about Zoom through these helpful tutorials.  I promise you will be pro-users in no time!

I am proud to offer both dance and life coaching sessions using this new technology.  It is the human connection we must maintain during these times, and technology is here to help.

Medals & Workshop – Postponed

Due to COVID-19, the Medals & Workshop that was to be held on Saturday, April 18, has been postponed.  The future date will be posted when health conditions allow.  Thank you all for your interest and stay well during these times.

“We could not be more satisfied with our progress”

“We have always wanted to learn ballroom dancing, so we began to take private lessons from Mary Botta last year. It turned out to be a very good decision. Mary is an excellent instructor. She is a good listener because she makes the effort to hear what we want to accomplish while including what we will be best for us as novice dancers. She is patient, clear and presents the instructions in a way that compliments our learning style. We could not be more satisfied with our progress.”

– Stella & Don, students
