Meet The Team!

Lilia Weisfeldt

Owner, Administrative Director,  & Instructor

As the owner of Ballroom in Boston, Lilia Weisfeldt is a dance instructor, competitor, and businesswoman extraordinaire.  Her love for dancing started when she was a student at Wellesley College, where she was invited to join the prestigious MIT Ballroom Dance Team. Competing on the team eventually led to a teaching gig—which soon grew into a full-blown teaching career.  Working with beginners quickly became Lilia’s joie de vivre.  Since 2006, she has been helping adults overcome their doubts about the dancefloor, coaching them to success with social dancing, wedding dances, and in competitions.  

Lilia has extensive competitive experience in the styles of rhythm, latin, smooth, and theater arts, and currently competes professionally in country dancing as well (yee-haw!).  When she’s not teaching or dancing, Lilia is also an active volunteer with the Rotary Club of Watertown and loves spending time with her wonderful husband, Steve, and their dog, Layla.

Hana Fisher

Hana Fisher is a dance instructor for kids and adults and coordinator of the Move & Groove kids’ program. Hana is trained in classical ballet, modern, contemporary, jazz, and now ballroom dance. Dance has been a constant part of Hana’s life growing up. Dance is a creative outlet for her to express herself through choreography, improvisation, and fun!

Hana has a degree from Lesley University in Expressive Arts Therapy. She also has been working with children for about 10 years, both in daycare, dance, and homecare settings. She loves working with kids and watching them as they continue to shine and learn new things about themselves and the world. She believes that using the arts, especially dance, can add to a child’s creativity and allow them to express themselves freely.
