What is Dancing?

dance

Dancing is a universal language. Two or more people can connect and communicate with nothing more than the movement of their bodies and their desire to move to the rhythm of the music. Music gives us a chance to communicate with people without even having to speak, to express ourselves without a single word. 

 

Music | Rhythm | Body | Action | Space | Energy 

 

“The truest expressions of a people are in its dance and in its music. Bodies never lie.” 

–Agnes de Mille

Founder / Master Instructor

As the founder of Dance Scenario, Leander has been living out his passion in life that he discovered at the age of 20 – Ballroom dancing – while he was still a full-time student. He started to teach and compete in Ballroom dancing in 1991 at an American chain dance studio; competed as an amateur from 1998 to 2009, as well as performing in dance demonstrations, instructional dance video productions, and private & corporate shows in many other dance styles that he studied, including Cuban Style Salsa and Argentine Tango. He has been a full-time, qualified dance professional since 2008 and enjoys teaching and inspiring his students to dance naturally with proper technique to express themselves fully, as well as partnering students in Pro-Am competitions and various show dance events.

What others say about us

I cannot say in words how you have inspired and developed my child.  It was not only about dancing but also about life skills you instilled in her.

Erin N.

Leander did an excellent job teaching my husband and I to perform a choreographed dance for our wedding. My husband has never danced before in his life and Leander had very little time to teach us. He did the impossible – we danced, and our guests loved it. I highly recommend him and will do it all over again.

Elmien S.

Dancing made me physically strong & fit, mentally free and truly happy. Each lesson, with Leander, was an adventure that fuelled my passion for this art! In each new step I learned, I gained a victory (big or small). I found purpose. I found peace of mind. At first dancing was only a way to ‘kill’ time, but I fell in love with it and now I never want to stop dancing!
