BROOKLYN -

News 12 headed to Brooklyn to learn about the world of ballroom dancing.

Roman Lerner, of Brooklyn’s Best Dance Studio, says he has been dancing since he was 10 years old. He and his family had moved from Ukraine to New York City, and he decided to try out a dance class as a way to stay off the streets while his parents worked. He fell in love with it.

Lerner says he has competed all over the world and has been teaching since the age of 15. 

He says that every dance has its own character.

“Some character has extreme happiness and joy, some has extreme focus and determination,” he says.
