*** Lesson Details ***
All Ages: From the basics to assistance with the most advanced of dance techniques, I can offer you extensive coaching and insights to improving your dancing abilities.
If you are interesting in becoming more flexible, learning to stretch as dancers do, or learning to meditate in the most basic way, (or a combination of the those,) set up lessons with me and I will share my extensive knowledge with you, coaching you along the way.
*** Studio Equipment ***
- Slight Bounce ~ It's important for a dance studio to have a sprung dance floor - this allows for proper shock absorption when jumping and dancing.
- No Texture ~ Most contemporary dance studios have a marly (smooth rubber plastic combination) flooring laid on top of the sprung floor foundation which makes for a softer dance floor and wears less on a dancer's knees when practicing modern dance (in comparison to a wooden dance floor).
Mirrors come in handy for beginners to be able to keep an eye on themselves while watching and following the dance teacher during guided exercises.
A ballet barre will be used in the training of ballet as it is a classic fundamental in the warm up and practice of classical, neoclassical, and contemporary ballet.

What you'll need for your in-home dance lessons with me:
1. Make room! Find an area of your house that provides you enough space to kick your legs, lie on the floor, and spin in circles with your arms open, without knocking over or hitting anything with your body. This way you can ensure there's enough room for us to dance and me to train you efficiently. If there are items in the way, this provides a potential safety hazard.
2. Check the floor quality. Wood floors are perfect because they provide a spring and shock absorption when jumping. Concrete and tile are not recommended for dancing. If you only have concrete and/or tile, I recommend that a rug be put down so that there is adequate cushion to prevent injury, and I can adjust my class for you so that we don't do specific movements that would be dangerous on a harder floor. Carpet is a bit too cushiony for dance, but can be worked with as well.
What you'll need for in-home stretching, meditation, or flexibility classes with me:
1. Make room! Find an area in your home where you and another person can lay on the floor with arms and legs extended. A good test for this is to see if two adults make "snow angels" simultaneously without hitting/touching each other or any other item in the room (including walls!).
2. A towel or yoga mat so that your face and body do not have to be in direct contact with the floor.

As a dance instructor my goal is to provide dancers with the information they need to perform movement properly while also encouraging them to express themselves artistically. I believe in creating an environment where dancers feel safe to make mistakes and try new techniques and expressions. My teaching structure involves a full ballet, modern, tap, or jazz class, as well as a sacred time at the end of class where the student gets to implement the techniques of the day, expressing themselves in a piece of artful choreography. This way dancers not only experience strong fundamentals, they are rewarded with the reason they are drawn to dance in the first place…artistic expression. During this end-of-class choreography, they apply themselves as artists. There is a different excitement, and therefore a unique learning opportunity that choreography brings; it is crucial for dancers to experience, even at an early age. As a professional dancer and choreographer myself, it is my mission to ignite a lasting passion and a fearless artistry in each student that comes through my door.
