About Me

I am completely dedicated to helping my students find their body's full potential. I love exploring ways to work with each person's anatomy and make a technique, a movement, really work for the individual.

I graduated Suma Cum Laude with a Bachelor of Fine Arts in Dance Performance from Marygrove College in Detroit and also hold the certification of Yoga Alliance Registered Teacher 200 Hour Training. I'm very focused on alignment and anatomy, and helping my students to really understand their bodies and how to use them for maximum performance and healthful longevity.

About Me

Tutoring has been a major part of my life for over 7 years and I love it. Seeing the excitement in a student's eyes when they finally get something they've struggled with is why I do what I do. My strength is in getting to know the way a student learns best and finding techniques that support that style and help the student grow.

I have experience working with mild autism and have multiple references if interested.

About Me

Hi! My name is Shantel Okorie and I love anything to do with the arts and staying fit. I have been dancing (hip hop, jazz, contemporary) since I was just three! As for painting I picked that up when I was around seven. I was classically trained in dance and was on multiple competitive teams winning nationals multiple years in a row. I helped teach the dance team at my high school and I have been working with kids for quite some time now. I love kids! I use to be a baby sitter and help kids with their homework and what not!
