Mariya is not only a great Latin dancer herself, she’s a wonderful teacher, adviser, mentor and also an entrepreneur. She understands that adequate practice dance-wear is essential as is with any other sports and, for those of us who have no incline of how or where to buy them, she provided the solution. Her line is gorgeous, comfortable and very reasonably priced. I love what she does and wish her every continued success!!"
"Mariya has been working with me off and on for about 4 years because I was off for about one year due to medical issues. She is an excellent teacher for many reasons. Of course she is very skilled and knowledgeable being a professional competitive dancer. She is always on time, does not ever short the lesson time, always is polite, her technique is extremely capable and professional, her professional competitive career is excellent and remains so today, and she is always very disciplined. Her kindness and patience with her students, while teaching detailed technique and dedication, is superb, and actually very inspiring. Mariya works with her students to help them to upgrade their dancing, and yet remains friendly at all times. In all of this time, I have never seen a cross face, an upset and/or negative attitude, or heard a cross or angry word. In fact, Mariya injects both fun, and playfulness, into her lessons. She enjoys life, and helps her students to do the same. It has been a very unique experience and opportunity for me to have worked with and known Mariya. I wish her the very best with her career wherever she takes it. And I should really add that it has been a true pleasure to work with and learn from Mariya."
"I’ve known Mariya for some years now and love her as a friend and teacher. I thank her for making such beautiful dance dresses available for us. Best wishes to the launch of her website!"
