Hello, welcome to my profile and thank you for taking the time to check it out. I am happy to introduce myself to you and share that teaching the performing arts is one of the greatest joys of my life.

I am a composer and LeAnna has performed some of my vocal music. Her last performances of my work was a soprano duet at two very large grand ballroom. Both times people rose to their feet and a number of people were moved to tears. It was a great success!

LeAnna has a very beautiful, pure tone in her singing.
Charletta F. Huntington Beach, CA

About Charletta

I began to dance as soon as I could walk. However, my formal training began at Orange Coast College with some of the most renowned dance instructors. The curriculum for certification to teach dance was a rigorous one involving video taped dance exams, required annual performances, required reading and summarizing of textbooks, speech presentations of researched information pertaining to dance and dance critiques and essays. And concluding the process, I underwent a dance instruction internship to solidify my education with Huntington Beach High School of the Performing Arts, Pacifica High School in Garden Grove, and Mary Butler Middle School in Long Beach, California. From there, I designed the teaching techniques that I utilize until this day. *** Lesson Details *** I strongly ...

Fun with Dance

Hi my name is Marli Jorgensen. I am 15 years old and I have been dancing with Charletta Fry since March of this year. My brother, Brian who is 11, and I enjoy her teaching very much. We have felt like we have become a dance family, she cares about our life outside of our dance life. She cares about our physical and mental health. She is also very concerned with teaching us the techniques to advance in our dancing. She is always interesting in her students teaching her as well. She is a very good choreographer and is always making dance routines for us all while we are having fun. We are glad to be continuing having her as our dance teacher. She has taught us so much and our very thankful to her.

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!

Weight Loss · In studio
I have tried doing so many things to change my life and nothing ever worked until I went online and decided to try things out and all of a sudden something sent me to this page and I was just desperate to try things out and I did. I've been with my instructor for a while I got to know her she seemed fun interesting and hard working she explains things out better and she also help me change my eating habits I'm noticing the difference from how I use to be to how I am now so far I have lost five pounds in three weeks and its not only because of exercise but also from the way she is teaching me how to cook. I recommend her because she does make a difference in your life.
