Vanessa G. Philadelphia, PA

I began dancing at the age of six and trained throughout the country at some of the best schools including The Rock Center for Dance in Las Vegas and Broadway Dance Center in New York City. Locally I attended the Philadelphia High School for the Creative and Performing Arts, where I trained under professors Wayne St. David and Shawn-Lamere Williams of Eleone Dance Theatre.

I started teaching and booked my first professional gig fifteen years ago and have been performing and sharing my experience with my students ever since. As a teacher I am passionate about proper technique and increasing the personal character of my students, but also about making class a fun,positive experience! I truly love what I do!

If you have any questions please do not hesitate to contact me and I cannot wait to work with you !

Layla has truly been a helpful tutor. I tend to struggle in classroom environments where the teacher can't always attend to my needs with so many students, so I decided to get a tutor. Layla has experience in teaching and so I decided to give her a try. Her methods are effective and have helped my improve already in such little time. She is not only helpful during our tutoring sessions, but also maintains dialogue in-between sessions, which is also very helpful. I would strongly recommend her as a tutor. She's amazing!

Layla is a wonderful tutor. Her teaching methods are very helpful and have helped me improve my English. It's sometimes hard for me to learn in a classroom environment, so her one-on-one teaching methods are very productive. I definitely recommend her as a tutor!

Piano
Great teacher of all things!

I'm taking piano/voice privately from Mary. I wanted to learn opera and then she showed me how important music theory is to work on your voice. I'm in my mid 40s and thought I never could learn all this complicated stuff- but Mary makes it so fun and easy and motivates me. I and my friend took ballroom dancing from her too. She has great prices and spends alot of overtime . Very generous and experienced!
