About Courtney

My name is Courtney A. I am a recent graduate of The Boston Conservatory and received my BFA in Musical Theater. I was lucky enough to know at a very young age that I had an interest in pursuing theater and trained rigorously in order to prepare myself. I am a working actress and am pursuing a career on Broadway but I also have a huge passion for children and teaching. I am still close with many of my high school teachers and know what a dramatic change they made in my life as a person and an artist. The possibility of helping others and making a difference in someones life really excites me. I have been teaching for 7 years (in Miami and Boston) and find it to be incredibly rewarding.

What to Expect in a Private Dance Lesson

I will cater to what each individual needs, working with dance material you already know or teach you choreography to achieve the following:

-provide personalized feedback to help improve technical and artistic growth.
- give tools to improve and deepen your understanding of technique
- explain how to connect your expressiveness with your technique
- become aware of habits that hinder your technique or expression and learn how to change them

Marlene R. Astoria, NY

I've directed and choreographed countless music videos, including hip hop legend, 2Pac Shakur's last. My goal is to have you feel the music at your core and let your feelings inspire your moves and energy. Regardless of age or level, I'll have you moving.
I specialize in hip hop and house music.
I have people warm up first, with stretching and isolated moves. I then move on to demonstrating expressive moves that come from the feeling of the music, until you feel it is like electricity moving through your body. I can have you feeling comfortable and confident on the dance floor, or prepare for an advanced performance.

About Marlene

I love teaching people to express themselves in the performing and written arts. I am great with beginners. I attended Ithaca College’s film program on a screenwriting scholarship. Since then, I've directed and choreographed over 50 music videos including 2Pac Shakur’s last, Amy Winehouse’s “F-Me Pumps,” as well as an award winning indie feature called THE BIG SHOT-CALLER. It was well received by the New York Times and critic Kam Williams gave it four stars. I was selected by FILMMAKER Magazine as one of their “Top 25 New Faces of Independent Film.” I have since written and directed three different comedy web series on YouTube entitled “My Parents Are Crazier Than Yours,” “Angry Gladys,” and “I Don’t Care About the Assholes with Dr. Rita Gatswani.” I am currently in the process ...

Marlene has been a remarkable teacher for me. I had never been involved in any type of Acting previously, but I always had a curiosity to try it out. I initially scheduled my online acting classes with Marlene to help give me confidence in expressing more of my natural self in my presentations, sales delivery, and daily conversations for my job. But I also went into these lessons with the goal of trying something exciting and somewhat daring, and who knows, maybe there is a role out there for me to try out in the future as I continue to improve my abilities and talents in acting. Marlene is very understanding and takes the time to learn about her students. From the very first minute I felt completely comfortable with her style of teaching. She challenges and encourages me throughout our lessons and I have already noticed significant improvements. She has opened me up to a new and adventurous path in how I can incorporate acting in my life and I am truly grateful for her help. I look forward to more lessons with Marlene and I highly recommend her.

Marlene is awesome! She is really passionate about the music and getting you to feel it! She was patient with me (thank God, because I'm a slow learner). After a lesson with her, you just want to go out and hit the club.

When I first started I was very uncertain in the hip hop style and was totally nervous. Marlene however was very encouraging right from the start and really acknowledged me wherever and whenever I had improved. Now, I find that I am very confident in my dancing and can actually break out some moves in clubs, which brings me a great deal of joy. Marlene also always makes the classes super entertaining. I find myself laughing quite often, which is one of the reasons I enjoy dancing with her so much.

Marlene is a wonderful teacher who truly loves dance and wants to see her students improve. I've recommended her classes to many of my friends. I want them to share in the same experience that I have.
