I have not been on FB for a couple months lately but I came on today to find that my friends shared this with me.... I have to share with with ED friends!
https://fb.watch/5Sp_Gmqb6r/
I have known Silvia for 20 years as an instructor. I couldn't not ask for a better instructor. She teaches the "how to" of dance, and not just the steps, as is all too common many places. Silvia has taught for several dance studios and has been sought after by all of them. It is very difficult to find an instructor that teaches international standard style, especially at a high level, has experience as a professional competitor. Silvia teaches all 4 styles of ballroom dance, along with Flamenco along and Argentine tango. She is a member of, and certified by, the National Dance Council of America (NDCA). Silvia loves to teach beginners, wedding couples as well as competitors and advanced students. I cannot recommend her enough for anyone who want to learn the art of dance, prepare for their wedding dance, or make it through their next party event.
Silvia Beltran has been in MY dance world as a teacher since 2010. There are many words I can use to describe about Sil's teaching abilities, and a FEW that come to mind are: knowledgeable, precision for each and every movement of my body and footwork, CARING, COMPASSIONATE, and full of laughter. Silvia has been a Professional Dancer for over 25 years, mainly in the DC /MD/VA area, in addition to being a teacher of Traditional Spanish dance - Flamenco, and Zumba, Argentine Tango, among other genres. I have been fortunate to study Ballroom and Flamenco dancing with Sil.

As a teacher, Silvia wants me to achieve my highest potential through participating in the Medal Tests that are offered to students. I have been fortunate enough to have her as my coach in the Medal Tests. Because of Silvia, I improve each and every time, as she wants all of her students to continue to progress to higher levels of dancing.

While teaching, Silvia does NOT allow me to speak negativity about myself. Her students must NOT put themselves down, say, "I can't", etc. Instead Silvia reminds us that the word "PERFECT" may not be in our vocabulary nor "Don't give up", as she patiently breaks down what needs to be corrected. She is great at sending videos to all her students to watch for practice.....and we better do our homework to help show our progress and improvement.

One of the most rewarding benefits is that Silvia is an outstanding choreographer when working with me. She is always willing to and wanting for me to dance to perform for others, as in a showcase. The constant JOY that exudes from Silvia is contagious as our lessons are always filled with laughter. Her dance ability and years of experiences makes me, as a student, feel as though, "We just did a GREAT job, all that hard work and practice was worth it." At the end of each performance there's a true feeling of accomplishment and puts smiles on our faces!

To have Silvia Beltran as a teacher, is like being a kid in a candy shop with an unlimited amount of money!

This is how I feel as her dance student: To know Sil, and have her as MY teacher, brings LIFE and CARING to my Heart, Body and Mind.
Excellent Happy Hour last night to celebrate the New Year! What a great job Elegant Dancing has done in navigating the crazy time - I am so grateful that the studio is still functioning and the spirit is still high and exhilarating. The video shown at the happy hour told me that I have not been active enough in 2020 - I missed a lot of fun! But earlier yesterday I signed for private lessons with Justin to start tomorrow -- in 2021 I am really coming back!

I saw this on the USISTD page and had to share it -- a charming Foxtrot number...

Elegant Dancing studio competition September 12 2020
Silvia gave an outstanding presentation on the History of Flamenco. Thank you for sharing your beautiful cultural heritage Silvia. I learn a lot!๐Ÿ’–
Everytime a new revelation with Ms. Silvia, that's her years of great teaching at work. Just learned new stretching exercises in the Viennese Waltz and Arm styling group classes, and again in lessons, here working with a stretch band (or any convenient item you can grab). Online classes keeping us in from going stir crazy, in shape and moving gracefully. Still some classes left for this month and a new set next month.
is the class starting at 7?
We'd love to see some of your dancers at this event. The Silver Tones Swing Band is a full-size swing orchestra and is very popular group in the area. Thank you for spreading the word!
I would love to attend the Dec. 7th Winter Showcase and Anniversary Celebration. What are options for purchasing tickets - do I need to actually come by the studio? Thanks!
Fabulous day today of free lessons at Elegant Dancing.What a generous treat you have given us. Many thanks
Will try to post some videos. First Aisa and Sasha teaching Rumba.
