Vista Ballroom, Erin Bolshakov the most disgustingly stuck up snob you can imagine. She may start out nice at first but stick around long enough and she will show you her true colors. I have personally seen her be rude to loyal p Internet, South Carolina

Erin Bolshakov, has been a terrible person, not just recently, but majority of her whole life.  Basically it starts back when she was a half way decent ballet dancer.  The stories i heard about her couldnt be true.. but if it looks like a duck, sounds like a duck, and walks like a duck... you better believe its a duck.  She has displayed herself countless times as the controling self centered narcissistic brat that always needs it her way.

I have heard one example of how terrible she is to her employees.  One case, she didnt tell one of her instructors that she was no longer paying him the rate they both agreed on until after she handed him a check, which was short by a few hours to his surprise.  And her reasoning was:  "you arent good enough".  When it comes to perfessionalism, well she has none.  When it comes to a performance or special event. [continued below]....
....... role out the red carpet because the Queen of B!$%H is coming through. 

There are numerous people who can testify on what type of character she is.  I for one will lead the way:  IM sick of her and how she treats people.  She wouldnt be successful if it werent for the people who faithfully supported the instructor Harby.  And again I have wittness countless times when she was flat out a B*$%^.  She has never supports any community benefits.  If you dont have money to spend, once she finds out will push you to the curb and sniff out the next person.  And let me tell you the things she has done at the studio late in the night sloppy drunk:  hit on other men (only when her husband is around), make fun of HER OWN PATRONS DANCING!!!! (what a B!t@H), and of course if she doesnt like you... you Do Not exists......

I will be updating this as things progress... or shall say digress.  

Mr.  D.

Erin Bolshakov is a wonderful teacher

AUTHOR: BernardRay - ()

Mr D launched a personal attack against Erin for his own personal reasons, and none of them good. I have know Erin for many years and taken dance lessons from her on many ocasions.She does not deserve this type of slander.

THere are some other dancers that used to go to the Vista Ballroom all the time. In fact you could hardly go to any function when they were not there, when they were present, they tried to control the entire affair.  They wanted to take over everything, infact they took over the 701 Whaley dance events, they dominated the social media with derision and lies and they ended up opening up there own dance studio and at the same time they tried to undermine Erin's studio and steal the clients. In fact they were never friendly with me until they opened their studio, then they suddenly wanted me to attend and be a friend on teh social media, so transparent.

I think it is sad and desperate to have to demean and undermine someone else because you want to prove to yourself that you are great. They are great dancers to be sure,, but they are small, trite and despicable people.

I wis Erin the best of luck and I hope that the other people get what they have earned.

Is this a competitor slinging mud?

AUTHOR: Dr Scott - (United States of America)

My girlfriend and I have both studied with Erin, taking trips from Charleston and New York City to participate in her workshops in Columbia.  She has been extremely professional and even generous with her time and help, and I find Mr. D's claims preposterous.  Is he jealous because she did not succumb to his advances (even knowing she is happily married with a beautiful son)?  Is he a competitor trying to damage her reputation?  I have been in dance education for years, and have directed a doctoral program in dance education at New York University.  I have never seen any  of the behavior attributed by Mr D to her (and attributed in a vulgar way that surely reflects on his character more than it does on hers) and I am very familiar with dance school attitudes, having taught at many myself in the past.  I find it stunning that Ripoff Report would allow such a review to be published anonymously, given the possibilities.  If I were her, I would file a case for libel.

A Basically Satisfied Consumer

AUTHOR: Janet Kozachek - (United States of America)

I worked with Erin a few years ago and found her to be very pleasant.  She was an excellent instructor in both Tango and Ballet.  Contrary to what the complaint registered says, I felt that she was very interested in my progress as a dancer despite my inability to  afford private lessons.  I always felt that I was treated fairly and that lessons were a great bargain and that this report is unjustly pejorative.  Hard to take reports full of so many spelling and grammar errors seriously anyway!

AUTHOR: anon - (United States of America)

So as it stands, everyone is upset for Mr D's original post.  Which may i remind all of you that this would have never happen if bad business was relsoved and the professionals conducted themselves as professionals should.  Now, after some thought I will like to retract some statements that may have seemed derogatory.. my intentions to be treated fairly and to settle unresolved business.  Issues were brought to Erin before only to be snubbed off.  If no one will listen, perhaps now I have your attention.  I will be glad to answer any questions anyone may have about the ordeal concerning this matter and related personel.  Communication via this thread only.  Looking forward.
