(Isstories Editorial):- Montecito, Jun 6, 2018 ( – So what happens when two women, both mothers, both entrepreneurs, both artists very passionate about ballroom dance meet, share their passion and experiences?

When Natallia Nathan, dance mom of Elizabeth and Mar De Carlo, ballroom dancer and dance mom of Bella Luna and Taj met nine months ago, little did both women know that they would be launching a ballroom dance academy in their community.

While Santa Barbara offers social ballroom dance lessons, classes and some competitive ones, Mar and Natallia found that the level, structure, organization and quality currently offered in their community leaves much room for improvement.

Very determined and committed, Mar and Natallia have been traveling three to four hours a few times each week to Los Angeles to get the most out of ballroom dance training and education. After traveling for many months to Los Angeles with young children, both women decided to bring what they were finding in LA back to Santa Barbara.

Mar and Natallia share a strong vision for MBDA and are on a mission to pioneer, grow and support an academic dance sport community where dance performers and competitors are educated and trained for peak performance.

Mar, MBDAs academic director, known for her creative, cutting edge and holistic vision in the many businesses she has established, found an opportunity to deliver her talents and skills to her ballroom dance community. She is excited about the chance to integrate business, health, personal development and much more to the world of ballroom dance education.  

MBDA is planning their grand opening September 2018. While the studio will be offering social and performance dance tracks to support their members needs, MBDAs main focus is bringing Santa Barbara and surrounding communities exceptional and cutting edge academic standards of ballroom dance training for their competitive, artistic and athletic dancers.

MBDAs services include International Latin and Standard, American Rhythm and Smooth group classes, performances, private lessons and competition preparation.

MBDAs academy will offer dancers not only the best understanding and application of technique but will also be providing education and training on nutrition, sleep, physical and mental fitness, relationships, business and communication.
