Meet the Team

Finding Inspiration in Every Turn


Arkadi (Arko)


I am originally from Yerevan, Armenia where I started dancing at the age of 7. My passion for dancing started with traditional Armenian dance then broadened to a love of Latin dance at the age of 12. Under the supervision of renowned Armenian dance teachers, I was able to broaden my skills and decided to further my studies at the Armenian State Pedagogical University. I graduated at the age of 22 with a Bachelor of Arts in Dancing Art.


In Armenia I performed on 'Dancing with the Stars', 'So You Think You Can Dance' and danced on numerous stages in many venues as a professional dancer, including for audiences numbering in the several thousands.


I am thrilled to have the opportunity to work with both children and adults who inspire me to become a better dancer and teacher every day.


Patrice Rose

Patrice's love for dance was cultivated very early in her childhood. This is due to her growing up in Jamaica where dance is an integral part of her

culture. After relocating to the United States Patrice was introduced to the world of ballroom dance. She has been dancing now for over a decade

and her passion for dance has grown exponentially!

In order to share her love for dance and all its benefits Patrice decided to pursue a career in dance as a ballroom dance instructor and professional



Aliana Castillo

Aliana grew up in Boston, MA, and has been dancing for eighteen years. At age three, she knew that dancing was her true love and wanted nothing more than to be on stage. She believes that the more genres you learn and expose yourself to, the more your love and passion grow. Therefore, she has trained in ballet, tap, jazz, hip pop, lyrical, contemporary, and ballroom, and currently training in salsa with Salsa y Control in Allston, MA. Due to her diverse training, dancing opened opportunities to travel all around New England to perform, join dance teams, compete and win titles such as First Place at Fred Astaire Dance Studio Colonial Classic 2017, First Place at Easterns Smooth Division 2018 Second Place Rhythm at Fred Astaire, Dance Studio New England Tristar Championship 2018, and now allowing her to teach.


Aliana knew that dancing for herself was not enough. She was eager to inspire and spread knowledge and love for dance with other passionate dancers. And is now teaching to see how she can push herself as an artist and see what may come in the future.
