About Me

Hello Students!
My name is Michelle and I have been dancing since I was seven years old! I was one of two graduates to earn my Bachelor of Fine Art in Dance/Dance Pedagogy from Columbia College Chicago in 2011. I have since moved back to New York City where I dance for a professional modern dance company in downtown Manhattan. When I am not teaching class, I am busy being a student of my own all over New York City at prestigious studios such as Steps on Broadway, Gibney Dance Center and Broadway Dance Center. It is here where I take daily classes with the country's greatest dance teachers/choreographers to continue my never ending training in dance techniques and developments.

As a working professional dancer, I understand the rigor that it takes to achieve your goals and I work with my students one on one to achieve them! I have had the honor of training with the greatest dancers in the business to help me achieve my goals such as David Dorfman, Joe Goode, Alexandra Beller, Kendra Portier, and Oliver Steele.

Dancing and teaching dance are my greatest passions in life and I want to share them with students of all ages from 18 months to 100 years old!

Thank you for visiting my profile and I hope to teach you soon!

*** Lesson Details ***
Whether you are stepping into a dance studio for the first time or preparing for a stressful audition I will help you achieve those goals and with a smile the entire time!

I believe it is important to build a relationship between teacher and student or parent, teacher and student to develop a curriculum that best benefits you or your child. Each lesson is specially designed to achieve your personal goals in whatever style of dance you decide!

Come dance with me and we can fulfill those life long dreams of learning to dance and work towards a healthy and happy life!

*** Studio Equipment ***
I am happy to rent a professional studio space for you to enhance your private dance lesson. A studio space will provide us with ample room and proper flooring that is designed to dance on as well as mirrors to help you learn. These professional studios are scarce and must be booked well in advance. There also will be an increase in lesson price for these lessons to cover cost of the studio.

*** Travel Equipment ***
I come fully equipped with portable, wireless speakers and an iPod. I'm also happy to take music request or happy to use your iPod/iPhone as well!

*** Specialties ***

About Me

While my resume is attached, I'd love to tell you a little about myself. My education is in Theater from both Boston University and The London Academy of Music and Dramatic Arts. This includes extensive training in acting, directing, writing, Meisner, Alexander Technique, production, dance, and entertainment history. After moving to New York, I quickly learned that my passions lay more in teaching performing arts rather than performing myself.

Teaching and helping others find tap into their creativity is a long rooted passion of mine. It began in Middle and High School when I was asked to choreograph the musicals in my town. I loved the challenge of visualizing a performance piece and explaining it to others. Witnessing a young person finally succeed in being free with their creativity is an extraordinary feeling.

I am excited to learn exactly what you/your child is looking to achieve within the performing arts and steadily guide you both grasping it.

Thanks for your time!
