Whether you are a new or existing student looking for a dance studio, a new partner, competition result, or you simply want to get more involved with your dance community, I have got great news for you. You can now find all these services online! Currently, there are many websites providing this information, but in my opinion, only few provide quality and user friendly content worth checking out. Below I outline my favorite websites for dance studio/instructor search, dance partner search, Dancesport news/results and dancing forums! READ THE REST
Passion4Dancing.com was founded by Leon Turetsky, a professional dance instructor and proud owner of Leon’s Dance Center in Boston MA. Read more about him here.
I created Passion4dancing.com because I wanted to give people a resource where they can learn how to dance quickly and easily. I always loved watching online dance lessons but soon realized that THERE WAS SO MUCH INFORMATION about dancing online but it was all over the place… And most of the videos had awful video and audio quality.
So in 2009 I created Passion4dancing.com where I started to publish high quality online dance lessons. Dance lessons that break everything down from timing, steps, lead and follow as well as technique. I organized all the steps by dances so that its easy to find and arranged them from easiest to hardest levels.
Here is a recent testimonial from one of our members:
“I love being a member of Passion4Dancing. It has improved my dancing immensely. Leon and Kim do a great job with the instructional videos in which they break down each step into its basic elements with different angles and the added bonus of the dance technique to help improve my dancing with connection and lead and follow tips. I look forward each time to the newly added video tutorials to help add more steps to my repertoire.”

This year’s Salsa congress was very entertaining indeed. The main theme running through this year’s jack and Jill contest, was taking off shirts! Last year it was talking on cell phones while dancing. In the Jack and Jill contest, where the couples are matched up randomly, there were a few couples that stood out the most. Here are 2 of my favorite Salsa videos.

In today’s Latin and Ballroom online dance lesson video, I explain another dance technique element: Moving body weight. This is a slightly less known dance technique element that many may not be familiar with, but can make a big difference in your dancing. I show how to move your body weight in the Salsa basic step, Cha Cha lockstep and Waltz box step. Relax, sit back and learn!
In this online dance instruction video, I explain the footwork dance technique element. I use 3 dance moves in 3 different dances to illustrate it. Learn the correct footwork for the Salsa, Tango and Swing basic steps. I also show examples of what not to do! After you watch this dance video, you will understand what “footwork” really means, so make sure to learn it for every dance step.
