Ria is experienced with multiple age groups for a variety of events including community socials, birthdays, and of course - weddings! Teaching is something she enjoys and believes that the dancing should be the "stress-free" part of any event. Her style of teaching is primarily focused on making her clients as comfortable and confident as possible. “It can be difficult to learn an entire combination of steps (with or without any previous dance experience) and planning for any event is already hard enough, so I do my best to break the steps down in a simple way that's easy to pick up virtually or in-person.”
