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!
Michelle

Ballet, Dance, Flute, Music Theory, Piano

About Me

Hello!

I am a recent conservatory graduate who has moved to the city to become involved in the fascinating art culture of New York City! I hold a Bachelor of Music degree in Flute Performance from the Lawrence University Conservatory of Music (Wisconsin), and have taught flute and piano for over six years with great success! I love teaching and performing equally and find a unique joy in bringing the joy of the arts to another person's life. I have extensive training in music theory, music history, flute performance and teaching, piano teaching, ballet technique and contemporary dance technique and I LOVE to share! I have a passion for teaching kids, but I am more than happy to teach any age. My students in the past have ranged in age from 3 years, to 60 years and I have loved my time with each of them! I hope to meet you soon!

Piano Teaching Experience and Philosophy:

For the past eight years I have maintained a studio of up to 20 students of all ages and abilities. I focus my teaching on elementary through early intermediate study, establishing a firm foundation in technique, theory, aural skills, musicality, and music appreciation. My goal for every beginning student is to foster a love of music and build the skills for disciplined practicing. I believe that regardless of other abilities, these two skills will enable any student to be an active and engaged musician throughout their life. To this end I teach a highly personalized private lesson, drawing heavily from a student’s musical interests and maintaining solid accountability for their independent work during the week. Although I usually base my teaching in Faber’s “Piano Adventures” series, I am very familiar with other popular methods and cater the books I use to the individual student. In addition to a method book base, I am comfortable supplementing my training with theory, history, guided listening and aural training. I have taught students of every age and aptitude including students with tendencies towards ADD, OCD and ADHD and am also comfortable working with those who have autism or Asperger's syndrome. I am a passionate teacher and firmly believe that every human being has the right to experience music. My pedagogical training includes observational hours at the university level and a workshop with Randall Faber of the “Piano Adventures” method book series.

Flute Teaching Experience and Philosophy:

Prior to and in conjunction with my performance degree I have taught flute privately since 2008. A conservatory level course in flute pedagogy with Suzanne Jordheim has greatly influenced my teaching and has allowed me the opportunity to work under the observation of the best private music teacher I have ever known. Since my work with Ms. Jordheim, my students have consistently won high honors in school and regional bands and orchestras as well as at state performance competitions. I focus my beginning students towards tone development, disciplined practicing, a relaxed posture and rhythmic integrity. I am comfortable teaching beginning through advanced flute students.

Subjects Taught

Ballet, Dance, Jazz Dancing, Theatrical Dance

About Me

I started dancing in high school with theater, and continued in college with Hip Hop, Ballet, and Jazz. After college I was apprenticed in Ballroom, Latin, and swing. I have been teaching all styles since I started in 2011.

In most lessons, stretching is important, as dance will be a workout of sorts :)
I make sure to teach students how to use the styles I teach, so I have a workshop format more so than a choreographed style. I find that just like in Ballet all styles have a history and a terminology, and that students should get to know it. By my instruction, students will be able to "freestyle" in any style learned. And upon request, can be given choreography specifically designed for them.

I've never lost a battle, and after we're done, neither will you!

About Me

I'm a professional dancer and I have trained in a variety of dance techniques since the age of six. Throughout my dance career I have become aware of the importance of cross-training for optimal conditioning of the body for the purpose of injury prevention.

I'm a certified Pilates instructor and I have more than seven years of experience as a Private Fitness Consultant, customizing my workout to the specific needs, goals and abilities of each individual client.
I created Pilates Fitness Fusion, which integrates elements from my years of dance, as well as from Yoga, Zena Rommett’s Floor Barre, Feldenkrais, Pilates and Gyrokinesis. I also draw from the fluid forms of Qi Gong, Tai Chi and Alexander Technique. The result is an incredibly diverse and specialized fitness program.

Pilates Fitness Fusion will help you to strengthen and sculpt your whole body, shed excess weight and address postural imbalances, so that you can be
FIT, HEALTHY and PAIN FREE!

*** Lesson Details ***
In order to improve each student’s overall conditioning, an equal focus is put on upper and lower body strength, flexibility, body alignment and balance.
My private sessions, as well as my group classes include key exercises of Pilates, Yoga and other strengthening and stretching techniques, which allows for a well-rounded and diverse training program.

About Me

This past May I graduated from New York University with a BA in French and a BFA in Dance. I was awarded the Prix d'Excellence from the French department for highest overall academic achievement in my graduating class, and I have maintained status on the Dean's Honor List throughout my college career.

While completing my double major, I danced professionally with Cherylyn Lavagnino, the chair of the NYU Tisch dance department, and have been actively teaching French and ballet lessons. Before attending college, I danced professionally with Richmond Ballet and North Carolina Dance Theater.

I have been a ballet dancer for 21 years, and I discovered my love for teaching this art form seven years ago. Throughout my career as a professional ballet dancer I continue to share my knowledge and experience with students of any level in a private or group setting.

My passion for French language began in high school and was fostered during college. I work with students of any level to improve their conversational skills, pronunciation, grammar, and written French.
