Best of Westchester - Editors' Picks
Best Ballroom Dance Studio 2005
Ashamed of your two left feet? Hidden away above a beverage distributor in Ardsley lies the secret to your redemption. Omitri and Svetlana Ostashkin, who ventured to the U.S. from Russia four years ago and opened the New York Dance Center in 2003, are two time East European champions and world finalists in ballroom dancing, so surely they can teach you a thing or two. Get ready to foxtrot, salsa, swing, tango, and cha cha (skill levels range from beginner to advanced for group lessons), or, if you're really in need of help, opt for private lessons. If you're not sure you're ready to take the plunge, scope out the talent by attending one of the couple's twice monthly open house parties, where you can sip some wine while watching the showcase of professional dancers. Soon you'll have no problems asking, Care to dance?
