A Note from the Owner

Welcome to our beautiful studio! We are located where San Jose and Santa Clara meet, just a couple of minutes from Santana Row and Valley Fair, right across the street from Barnes and Nobles.

A little bit about me and SVDC mission…

My name is Monica and I was born in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil. I have danced my whole life, even as a child in Brazil. I eventually moved to the United States, and in 2011, I joined the world of competitive ballroom dancing. Together with my Pro/Am instructor and partner, Artjom Shmigeljuk, I have enjoyed the opportunity to embrace an awesome and fun dance journey, traveling all over the country from competition to competition, even winning several of them! 

Through my years of dancing, I have met so many people and have been blessed to see how dancing has to the ability to make so many others happy and change so many people’s lives, including my own! 

As a lover of dance and wellness, I have always wanted to help others live healthy and engaged lives. For a long time, I had envisioned having a space like what I grew up with in Brazil where people could happily spend time together, be a part of a community, and learn to dance, socialize, and be fit.  

The year 2016 came by, bringing with it a personal health challenge; through this experience, I came to decide that life is too short and we owe it to ourselves to make our dreams a reality. After a few more years and a whole lot of effort, Silicon Valley Dance Club (SVDC) was finally born!

SVDC is not just a dance studio, but rather, it is a place where we celebrate and embrace community, healthy living, and having fun! Once people have a chance to join the SVDC family and experience the friendly community aspect that makes our studio unique, our mission will be accomplished!

You won’t find any discrimination here at SVDC: no matter where you come from, what  age you are, what gender you identify with, or what ability/disability you possess, all are welcome! Our goal is to make a dance studio for all, whether you are a social dancer, competitive dancer, or you are just looking for a creative outlet! It is a privilege to be providing a beautiful, cozy, and welcoming space for all dance communities to be a part of.

We hope to see you here soon! Let’s dance!
