Denise Rusinak is the owner and artistic director of The Brooklyn Dance Centers. Denise’s love of dance started at a neighborhood school where she studied ballet, tap and jazz from the age of 4. She went on to study at the world renowned School of American Ballet and holds a Bachelor’s in Dance from Brooklyn College. After graduating, Denise danced with The Brooklyn Dance Theater and Footfall Dance Co. Denise has won top choreography awards at Starpower, Dancer’s Inc. and That’s Entertainment national dance competitions. Denise’s dance “Confined” won first place out of over 500 dances performed by schools from all over the northeast. One of her most enjoyable experiences was having danced in the film, “Saturday Night Fever.” That performance led to roles in commercials, cable films and many TV Shows including “Midday Live”, “The David Susskind Show” and “The Stanley Siegal Show”. Denise has been featured on A & E’s “Biography” segment on disco and dance. She is proud to be certified by Dance Educators of America and has received a Certificate of Recognition from “Dance Teacher Magazine” for the past six years.
