Patricia Monico – owner House of Dance
Voted BEST OF VENTURA COUNTY 2015 by Ventura County Reporter’s “Best Of”
I started dancing in 1977 and began teaching 1994. I have danced professionally on Holland American Cruise lines and Royal Cruise lines, won six first place medals at the Western Regional Challenge and I have also danced in two 24 hour dance-a-thons to raise money for AIDS. I can be in the movie “Dance With Me” and TV programs like Boy Meets World and TV commercals.
From the very beginning I could see there was a need in our community for a studio that offered many forms of dance classes as well as a place for students and teachers to come together and socialize. As I would go to studios to dance and to events I would keep notes about each event so when it came time to open my own studio I went through the note book to see what I wanted to have under the House of Dance roof. The name House of Dance was conceived because I started out with a studio in my home. So when I moved to this location, I kept the name. I wanted it to feel like home away from home to everyone.
House of Dance offers beginning to advance social dance classes as well as competition dance classes. Offerings include ballroom, Latin, Swing, Salsa, Argentine Tango and club dances like Hustle and Night Club Two Step, Line dances and Country couples dances. Group classes and private classes are also available. You do not need a partner for our classes Monday through Thursday.
