Learn to Dance With Happy People in A Happy Place
Dance Passion is a Ballroom Studio run by Bulgarian Dancer Ivan Grigorov and his team of certified pros.
They run Group and Private Lessons in Latin and Ballroom in a beautiful custom-created Studio on Central Avenue in St. Petersburg with the motto ‘There are shortcuts to happiness and dancing with passion is one of them.’
Dance Passion aims to bring all forms of social dancing to everyone in a supportive and nurturing atmosphere to play and learn the art of dance. The quality of teaching is excellent for everyone from complete beginners to advanced competition students. We also support our students by giving them instant access to live training videos between classes. Dance Passion strives to create the best environment for learning to dance. It is the only Studio in the County offering free weekly live tutorials with plenty of demonstrations to prolong the effects of the class, thereby empowering students to control their progress.
Whether you’ve never danced before and would like to learn, have thought about it, or are afraid to try, or learned a few times and need a refresher, we can help! From the classic and dashing Foxtrot to the energetic Jitterbug, Dance Passion is where you can have fun while learning to dance. In addition to group dance classes and private lessons, we have monthly dance practice parties.
It all starts with a free Trial Lesson! Call us today to schedule your initial trial lesson (solo or with a partner) or register: For a Trial Lesson Please Click Here
Accolades, Salutations, Hallelujahs and a mess of AMENS (I’d have thrown in Hail Mary’s but I’m Jewish)… finally after too many decades and devastated expectations, coupled with a small fortune that at least kept the AC on for far too many dance teachers and their schools… (and this is inclusive of schools on multiple continents, with different languages and a myriad of techniques) I am finally, FINALLY making progress!!! I”m only on lesson 8 at this point; but my previous accomplishments were never much more notable than stumbling awkwardly, usually out of step and forever grateful that the wayward toes of my partner and even the teacher were fortuitously spared total crippling or permanent disfigurement. Now, with Bryan at the helm, I am moving with some degree of control, synchronizing with my partner, managing basic steps and minimally… I am NOT the worst ‘dancer’ on the dance floor. [Okay, perhaps I’m still the worst dancer on the dance floor… but at least I’m doing so much better than ever before… and I’m improving with each lesson.] While medical school was difficult, nothing ever seemed so evasive and impossible for me as fulfilling my hopes that someday I might actually be able to move rhythmically to music. Yet Bryan and Dance Passion has mastered the rare, alchemic magic and finesse, (or more specifically: the talent, expertise, patience and insight) to get me out of my head, handicap, hubris and hopelessness…. transforming me into… well… someone who not only believes I will someday dance with confidence and joy, but someone who undeniably knows it with unwavering certainty! Kudos, Thanks, and unbridled Gratitude! ~Stuart Lipman MD
I was fortunate enough to meet Ivan and his upbeat circle of staff as well as his sexy, zany stable of students two years ago. I think Dance Passion is terrific. Technique is taught in a supportive, easy to understand way that belies the complexity of the underlying material. The best thing, though, is that the passion for dance comes through in a positive, life affirming way. Dance Passion is a place where you can give yourself the gift of dance. Try it and you will see…
Looking for a place to learn to dance? It is HERE! Jot down the address! Dance Passion is where you will find Ivan and his team of talented professionals, Monika and Kyle; who GREET you with sincere warmth and friendliness and TEACH you their LOVE for the ART of DANCE. After a lesson, we, the students, leave with a feeling of accomplishment, enjoyment and eager to return to learn the next dance! Now, I want to perfect my STYLE ! Look out, Ginger!
Dance Passion Studio is not only the place for dancing. It’s a state of mind and soul because the owner/ instructor Ivan and instructor Thibault manage to give you peace, joy, fun and very professional dancing skills during the class. You always look forward to next class to come, to every Friday’s party and Monday’s to Friday’s group classes. There are multiple programs for kids, couples and seniors waiting for you. Surprise your spouse, friend or child with passionate dancing you can learn at Dance Passion! You will find peace inside you and will forget about life outside with Dance Passion I can guarantee you that, it’s my own experience. You are never too young or too old to dance!
“Great dancers are not great because of their technique, they are great because of their passion”
