About Me

I graduated from Juilliard in dance and pursued modern dance and all sorts of theatre including musicals and music theatre and performing arts. I have taught children and grown ups for many years. I have a strong performing career and love the way teaching keeps me in a giving and learning place.

*** Lesson Details ***
With beginning students I am very laid back and patient and believe strongly that in the play of games and experiments technique will develop and manifest. As the student becomes more advanced I become more demanding as do the materials. As an acting teacher I have an advanced capacity to take students along all the way to professional and beyond. I am a member of the Actors Studio, the performing unions and studied since childhood at ACT and then all over the world including The National in London. In Singing and Piano I can be valuable to the beginning level and will want to send them to another teacher as they progress beyond my ability. In dance I have a wide knowledge and can teach several forms as well as history and materials. In Juilliard I specialized in historical dance of the French Court which is also known as pre-ballet. At present I am studying Swing and Tango and can teach that in the beginning levels. I can also teach Ballet and a few forms of Modern Dance.

*** Studio Equipment ***
I have a Sterling Spinet Piano here in my studio. It is wonderful for beginning students in Piano and Voice. My studio in the front room of my home is spacious and holds a strong library of materials for my acting students. There is also sufficient space for moving about and practicing and performing monologues, songs and dances.

There is a cat here too so if you are terribly allergic remember to take something. Alternatively, we can schedule at your place or a professional studio. He is a short hair and most people with mild allergies will be fine.

*** Travel Equipment ***
just a space to work in - we can create a work space out of any space.

*** Specialties ***
i teach a combination of classical acting technique with american sense memory and relaxation skills. i teach creative discovery in combination with classical devices so the student can discover their own artistry and also know actual classical devices for accomplishing things.

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

*** 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!
