PROFESSIONAL DANCE INSTRUCTOR
I am an experienced, professional dance instructor and choreographer. I have been teaching for 12 years; I teach all levels and abilities of dancers.
I collaborate with each dancer to ensure that I understand your dance goals. I teach with patience, kindness, and humor.
I assist couples with creating memorable wedding dances. I also provide support and guidance to Competitive Pro-Am dancers, as well as teaching a variety of social dances.
I began my ballroom dancing career, in Hungary, at 8 years old when I was asked to partner with a classmate. Soon after beginning ballroom dance, I started taking ballet. I didn't choose dancing; it chose me.

What people are saying...
I had danced with Tamas for 4 years. Had an amazing experience during lessons and competitions. He is a great Rhythm dancer, teacher, person with a good sense of humor, taste; every competition dress I bought was gorgeous and was his suggestion. He knew exactly what I needed.

Tamas is a fantastic teacher; his teaching style is professional, encouraging, and fun. He easily adjusts to one's skill level and physical ability. I appreciate that he listens to my goals and collaborates with me to meet them. He is helping me to become a better dancer.
He kindly and patiently guided me through the process for our first Pro-Am Competition....number and style of dances, costume options, hair & make-up styles, and shoes....it was a wonderfully fun day. I look forward to our lessons and our next competition.

Dancing with Tamas is such a blast, and I appreciate how well he is able to explain different concepts and body movements. He has an excellent sense of humor, and really tells it like it is, but is always so pleasant to work with! An all-around wonderful teacher.
