Welcome to SIVA Dance. We are the premier dance school in the D.C. and Northern Virginia area. We offer high-end dance instruction for pleasure and competition. We have been awarded “Best United States Ballroom Dance Studio” every year since our founding in 2012. 

In the 2016 United States Dance Championship, the founder of SIVA Dance, Sinisa Vasic, was awarded 1st Prize in the Top Teacher Category in American Rhythm Style, American Smooth Style, International Latin Style and International Ballroom Style, as well as the top overall teacher. Additionally, SIVA Dance was honored as the Top Studio in its size class. 

Sinisa Vasic

You will have private lessons with one of our instructors. These are no ordinary dance teachers and coaches, but rather world-class dancers who will act as your dance partner to teach you. Our founder, Sinisa Vasic, is a well-known and decorated dance instructor. He has been awarded “Best Overall United States Ballroom Dance Teacher.” He founded SIVA Dance and is the artistic director, so you can be sure that all lessons are of the highest quality and true to each dance form.


Our professional dance instructors deliver results. If this means getting you to European championships or choreographing and teaching you the wedding dance of your dreams, we can do it. Many of our students participate and win their categories in dance championships in both the United States and Europe. You don’t have to want to compete to take and enjoy dance lessons. You can take them for fun or exercise, as well as the pure pleasure this art form offers.

Dance Styles Offered

We teach many styles of dance, including American Rhythm Dances, American Smooth Dances, International Ballroom Dances, and International Latin Dances. Each dance form represents cultural and artistic flavors that you can dive into as you learn the dances.

A Word From Our Founder

I think that dancing is much more than just learning steps and patterns and trying to do them perfectly. On the contrary, that’s the kind of dancing that prevents you from being larger than yourself and following your instinct in order to be uniquely beautiful and dance from deep inside of you. Dancing is being the star that you were born to be. At SIVA dance, we will guide you to the discovery of the passionate dancer that we know lives inside you. Private dance lessons give you the chance to explore various forms of dance to discover the one that is right for you. Among other forms of dance, we teach International Ballroom Dance and International Latin Dance, as well as social dancing and wedding dance lessons.
