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!

*** 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!

*** Specialties ***

Janelle Y. Brooklyn, NY

About Me

Hailing from Connecticut, Janelle has come to make her mark in the dance world of New York City. As a recent graduate of New York University, Janelle has focused her attention on the arts. Not only has she begun to choreograph for such artists as Kitana Blade and such groups as MAD dance, she is a dancer herself, having performed in numerous PMT Seasonal Showcases, Alvin Ailey Student Showcases and many other venues throughout the city.

She has gone from being a student at New York University to being an adjunct professor where her classes range from Ballet, Modern, Jazz, Hip Hop, Stepping to African and Kathak dancing. Her life is "Dancing gives my life substance while teaching gives my life purpose."

She always looks forward to teaching new students and will welcome anyone in every class with a smile and a knack for instilling what she knows to those who participate.

*** Lesson Details ***
When taking class with me I look for the students to show as much effort as possible! A lot of fun will be had as I too love to dance and participate with my students, laugh and enjoy our time together. Each class or session will begin with an extensive warm up as to avoid injury and then from there we will proceed into choreography that focuses on a specific skill set we are looking to achieve for that day. After 3-6 months of working with me I'd expect the students to be able to 1.) be creative and comfortable in themselves to utilize the movement that has been taught in previous sessions 2.) execute the movements properly and 3.) enjoy the progress that they have made and to be able to notice it themselves

Hip Hop, Jazz, African, Carribean

About Me

Hey guys! I have a passion for Musical Theatre and all that comes with the wonderful art form--acting, singing, dancing, and doing all three at the same time :). I'™m here to help my students grow, just like my teachers have helped me.
I love helping students activate their songs, monologues, and scenes in ways they never thought possible. I have a knack for getting my students to tell their stories in a strong, direct way. I focus on using the words the lyricist or playwright has given achieve the character'™s objective (and consequently, grip the audience's attention). However, that'™s all the delicious whipped cream and frosting at the top of the cake. In order to create an arc in a song, a character with an objective, and a human being fighting for something, we need to get in touch with the instruments we are using: our voice, our body, and our mind.
Focusing our mind on presence is the key to accessing an open body. Without presence, we aren't in our bodies. Our minds race, the inner critic judges, and we can go through a whole lesson (or performance!) without actually having witnessed our creative expression. Once we can focus our mind, we begin focusing our body. We make choices, or in most cases, our bodies make the choices for us, while we sit back and allow the expression to develop organically. And it can only develop organically when we are fully present. In order to become present, I use exercises borrowed from a number of body, mind, and voice techniques: meditation, yoga, and Fitzmaurice work, mainly.
Then we can start with the voice. I love helping students find new sounds, range, and texture to their voices. To do this, I use basic exercises that emphasize a number of skills we need to hone: open vowels, forward/nasal placement, palatal alignment, and using the lighter mechanism of our voice we so often want to ignore. Once our body, voice, and mind are aligned, we are ready to tackle the song, scene, monologue, or dance combination we are working on in our lesson.
Let's do it!

Sarah L. Clifton, NJ

Subjects Taught

Ballet, Dance, Jazz Dancing, Theatrical Dance

About Me

I started dancing in high school with theater, and continued in college with Hip Hop, Ballet, and Jazz. After college I was apprenticed in Ballroom, Latin, and swing. I have been teaching all styles since I started in 2011.

In most lessons, stretching is important, as dance will be a workout of sorts :)
I make sure to teach students how to use the styles I teach, so I have a workshop format more so than a choreographed style. I find that just like in Ballet all styles have a history and a terminology, and that students should get to know it. By my instruction, students will be able to "freestyle" in any style learned. And upon request, can be given choreography specifically designed for them.

I've never lost a battle, and after we're done, neither will you!
