Since moving to the US 14 years ago, Agnes has acquired extensive knowledge in American Smooth and Rythm, so she is well rounded in all 4 styles. “I do coach the minor dances like salsa, west coast, bachata as well, but it’s not my area of expertise. I love to work on the quality of dancing as I believe that learning better technique and mastering the fundamentals, ultimately allows the students and teachers to have better freedom of expression and creates more enjoyment in their dancing. I also enjoy very much creating choreography for any level and any purpose, from wedding couples to professional routines. I think my biggest strength is the ability to explain things clearly and simply and making the students and teachers feel comfortable and capable of becoming better dancers. I like the personal connection and I always try to be encouraging and honest at the same time. As much as I come from a competitive background I really enjoy the social aspect of it as well. People dance for many different reasons and I always try to recognize and help to achieve their individual goals and dreams. I like to learn about the culture of each studio, be of service in any way I can and be a good role model and an inspiration.”
