This Local Couple Found Their Relationship Rhythm on the Dance Floor

Each week we ask a local couple, ’How did you meet?’

In series How Did You Meet?, local couples tell us how they first hooked up.

Some smooth moves on the dance floor brought Lenny and Natalia together. They met a few years ago, when Natalia was looking for a job as a ballroom dance instructor at Lenny’s studio. He hired her and she ended up becoming his professional ballroom dancing partner. Soon, they became an item. ⁠

“It wasn’t immediate. It was a progressive movement,” But we ended up becoming boyfriend and girlfriend,” explains Lenny, 36, owner of Camarillo Dance Studio.⁠⁠

During the pandemic the two still teach ballroom dance classes on Zoom and in outdoor spaces. Natalia, 27, says in Lenny she found more than just a dance partner: “Lenny is an awesome dancer, partner, and an awesome lover.”⁠
