Samantha MelesenkaSamantha Melesenka is a very talented dancer, who dances and teaches both Ballroom dancing and Latin & Rhythm dancing.

On Sundays in November, 2013, she and Steeve Jean Louis teamed up to teach a series of classes (each 1.5 hours) at Goldcoast Ballroom on Fundamentals of Dance, including:

  • Introduction to Ballroom Dancing – including an introduction to the different dances included in Ballroom dancing, the characteristics and music for each dance, regulation tempos, samples of some basic patterns, the different character of the different dances, and other important information to get you started with Ballroom dancing;
  • Beginner Ballroom Dancing – a sequel to the Introduction to Ballroom Dancing class, in which students will build on what they learned in the first class, and learn how to do the basic patterns in the different Ballroom dances;
  • Introduction to Latin & Rhythm Dancing – including an introduction to the different dances included in Latin and Rhythm dancing, the characteristics and music for each dance, regulation tempos, samples of some basic patterns, the different character of the different dances, and other important information to get you started with Latin and Rhythm dancing.
  • Beginner Latin & Rhythm Dancing – a sequel to the Introduction to Latin & Rhythm Dancing class, in which students will build on what they learned in the previous class, and learn how to do the basic patterns in the different Latin & Rhythm dances;

These classes, each 1.5 hours in length, were developed in conjunction with Steeve Jean Louis and Goldcoast Ballroom, drawing and expanding upon the important information and resources found on our website Resource pages under Learn About Dance.

The Fundamentals of Dance Series of classes will prepare students to get more out of other classes they take at Goldcoast Ballroom, and may help accelerate their learning.

Samantha is both a Ballroom and a Latin Dance Instructor.
