Between my 8 years of latin ballroom experience and training in bellydance, ballet, hip hop, gymnastics, and aerial arts, I bring a fusion of different dance background to each lesson.

I have been mentored by national and international ballroom champions, and have been teaching dance for 4 years. All ages welcome. If your looking for a social way to stay fit, or just want to learn a new skill, you've come to the right place.

About Sasha
Hey, Sasha speaking! I would be thrilled to share my passion for dance with you. I am trained in various styles including ballroom, ballet, bellydance, hip hop and aerial arts (aerial silk, hoop and pole). I have been teaching different subjects for 6 years with a focus in instructing ballroom for the last 4 years. I believe dance is a healing and liberating art and would love to help you find your flow. Not only is dance fun, but it will come in handy at parties and events, and is a great way to socialize. I am experienced with both kids ages 4 and up as well as adults, so please feel free to contact me, and we can begin an awesome journey.

I am now offering online group classes in various subjects as well. Subjects include Zumba, Bellydance, and Hip hop with more coming soon. Classes run weekday mornings and some weekends.

Sasha did an amazing job teaching my now husband and me our first dance! We now, not only, have a few beginner ballroom dancing skills but also some regular dancing skills we can take to any party. She helped make our fairytale wedding really look the part with a solid ballroom dance in only about 10 lessons! She made it so fun too! Thank you!

I begin training in ballet at age 2. It was what I aspire to do! If you have any interest in ballet then this class is the class for you! This class will go over the basic ballet positions, movies, alignment, and various combinations as well as terminology.

About Sarah
Hello and Welcome!
My name is Sarah and I am honored you have chosen to look at my profile. Finding the right teacher is so important! I always try to make sure that I accommodate what is best for each individual student when I approach teaching. Before we get into my teach methods, let me tell you a bit about myself and my background.
I graduated from Lees-McRae College in May 2017 with a BFA in musical theater and a minor in art and design. I know at a glance it may be overwhelming how many classes I teach. You see, as Musical Theatre Major I had to learn a VAST amount of topics. I studied many forms of dance, took advance makeup courses, vocal training, acting, along with all of the sub categories that go with it; not to mention with my minor in art and design I know my way around with a paint brush/camera/computer. Art, in all form
s are has always been my way of expressing, feeling, and embracing life.
When I had my internship at the Arkansas Arts Center Children's Theatre and I had to learn ALL aspects of theatre and I had the pleasure to work with kids every day.

I was training American Sign Language at Northern Virginia Community College back in 2012. In 2015 I studied under an ASL master from Gallaudet University. I have continued to further my knowledge of ASL every day. I was recently the ASL captain at work who helped make sure all signs were done correctly and expressed properly.

My goal is to help you learn what you are craving to know! I try to not charge too high for lessons, I know that this is something that is for fun and is not always a possibility so I try to keep it at a lowish price so that everyone has a chance to learn. I am very flexible to schedules. I am willing to have a regular time or switching it up weekly; I have students who travel for a living so they are always on a different time zone; no matter the obstacle I will make it work for you!
Something that is great to know about me is that I never stop training, pursuing growth and knowledge. I read books in these various fields to learn more and more, take master classes, and train with my own vocal coaches. I think art - on any platform, is a great way to get out of your head, free your mind, and open up yourself. So this can be for professional training, a hobby you always wanted to pursue, or a dream you wanted to chase after.

In my class with you, or you child, I will make an individualized lesson plan that focus around what skills you already have, what skills you aim to improve/gain, and how you learn. I am very familiar with the fact that we are ALL different, which means we will all learn DIFFERENTLY. I am willing to explain something in as many ways as one needs in order to understand. I like to think of my lessons as a “safe place” to explore, have fun, grow, and be okay with making mistakes. We will always start with the basics, understand the core of the craft - for example in singing that would be our vocal anatomy and how it all connects together. I use props to help make the concept more visual and graspable as well as diagrams. This is not something someone will pick up in one lesson, so don’t come in saying “I can’t”, you can, you just have to learn HOW. I will show you the how. Remember, this is a learning process, we must embrace each step of our growth.
-----
Some background of how I came to do what I do:
I have been working professionally for theatres for five years now; which has had me living in various towns in NC, OH, AR, and traveling nationwide for tours. I have a lot of experience under my belt for my years. I began taking performance classes as young as age 2 when I started ballet, then I began singing in choir in third grade. I started being in awe of sign language when I saw an interpreter working her magic around age ten and I asked my mom for a sign language book. Expanding my knowledge is what I do for fun, so when you pick me you pick someone who is constantly growing and learning more which will ultimately benefit the student.

I teach a variety of classes that, for the most part, circle around the arts! Some of my classes include, but are not limited to: Acting, Child Acting, Improv Audition Prep, Various styles of “Singing” classes, Ear Training, Musical Theatre, Music Performance, Various “Art” classes, Facial Exercises (Which is great for singers, and those who speak a lot day to day to help relieve tension in the face), and more!
For an explanation on each class, I will be recording a video that describes them and posting that on here soon! There is a video trailer of me singing and dancing that is currently available. If you want to know anything more at all please do not hesitate to send me a message and I will respond as quickly as I possibly can!

I've studied ballet (eventually getting to pointe) on and off for seven years with a number of teachers using different technique standards. If ballet is something you'd like to try, or perhaps you're an actor looking for more movement training, I'd love to teach you! While I could teach up to an intermediate level, I prefer working with beginners one-on-one. Private lessons allows me to take the time to show you the ropes and proper technique without the pressure of a fast-paced classroom environment. This can be especially helpful for those who may be unsure about dancing in front of others or are coming at it past the "typical" ballet age and are yet to find a class that makes them feel at home! I have this problem myself and I am only in my 20's (a lot of ballet classes near me have mainly young teens as students)! So whatever your goals are with ballet, or if it's just something you want to try out, let's talk and make a plan for some training! I also love working with kids on ...

About Carissa
Hi! I'm Carissa, a working actor and playwright, and would love to work with you on your craft! I grew up heavily immersed in the arts from a young age. For Middle School and High School I attended one of the top Performing Arts schools in the State of California, where I was able to take classes such as ballet, tap, jazz, acting, and playwriting daily. After that, I earned a spot in, and graduated from, the BFA Acting program at the University of North Carolina School of the Arts. After taking a year to work professionally in theatre and television, I moved to Ireland to earn my MFA in Playwriting from The Lir Academy (an affiliate school of London's RADA). Teaching has been a big part of my life, from private study to running theatre camps for kids. I'm well versed in the drama school audition trail and would love to help you prepare fo
r this exciting time! I also offer playwriting lessons/critique, and beginner lessons in dance (ballet, jazz, tap). I look forward to hearing from you!

As a professional dancer and teacher of ballet, yoga, and the Gyrotonic and Gyrokinesis methods, I have a deep knowledge of the physical and expressive potential of the human body.

As a teacher, I work in a way that is focused yet easygoing, approaching each individual student's capability in a healthy way. I have taught students ranging in age from 7 to 75, and love teaching any age.

My ballet classes begin with the foundations of classical ballet, with a focus on the details of technique that allow a student to quickly progress in strength, flexibility, and continue to progress to higher levels and possibilities of movement. As a dancer and teacher, I have found that this strong technical foundation is what allows dancers to find the most freedom and expression as artists.

My other movement classes (yoga, stretch, conditioning, Gyrokinesis) always work in the healthiest way for the body, respecting the student's needs and capabilities each day. We begin with an easy ...

About Rebecca
Hi! I'm Rebecca, a professional ballet and contemporary ballet based in New York. I studied ballet and contemporary dance at the North Carolina School of the Arts and Alonzo King's LINES Ballet. I've danced with Nevada Ballet Theatre, Terra Firma Dance Theatre, Azoth Dance Theatre, Ballet Inc, among other companies and projects in New York. Dance is my life and my passion, and I love to share it with others, on the stage and in the studio. I have been teaching ballet for 5 years, and am currently working with students at Premiere Division, an elite professional training program for ballet dancers.

I learned early on in my career the importance of working in a healthy way that kept me from injury and supported my artistry, one that included cross-training. This led me to yoga and Gyrotonic/Gyrokinesis. I was certified to teach As
htanga Vinyasa yoga in 2008, and then in Gyrotonic in 2011. These modalities have been a source of strength, flexibility, and focus in my body and mind. They've changed my dancing and my life!

Always the curious learner, I also went to Columbia University while dancing in New York, studying part-time while performing. I graduated summa cum laude and Phi Beta Kappa with a degree in Anthropology in 2016.

I truly love teaching, and hope to get to share the joy of movement with you!

Rebecca is a great instructor! She and I have worked together for many years, and have shared students with each other. I always trust her to take over my ballet classes if I need a sub. She is incredibly attentive, great with technique, and a wonderfully thoughtful person! I’d be happy to recommend her strongly as a teacher.

Benita understands how to teach passion and expression to others. She has the unique talent not only as a dancer herself but as a teacher to bring than on to her students. Very few teachers can do that.
To quote from Mozart in the jungle.
She dances/teaches with the blood.

About Mariah
Hello! My name is Mariah and I am a passionate artist thriving to share love and light through the arts! I have worked as a professional dancer for ten years and have over fifteenth years of diverse training. In my early years, I received my training from the Debbie Allen Dance Academy where I was molded by the best educators possible to acquire outstanding skills. Learning ballet, jazz, tap, dunham, flamingo, hip hop, salsa, African, point, modern, character, musical theater, and Latin fusion. After high school I attended Columbia College Chicago where I earned my Bachelors of Arts in Theater. During my years at Columbia I combined my passion for dance and interest in acting by diving into as much extracurricular as possible! I was one of the first student co-choreographers to choreograph a main stage musical at Columbia. I was very prou
d to co-choreograph Once On This Island while still working towards my degree! I have a very diverse background and it now reflects in my professional life. Currently, I spend my time taking care of animals, hiking, going to the beach, teaching dance/theater, taking dance class, and keeping up with my younger siblings.

I have judged for Star Bound Dance Competitions, taught lecture demonstrations at various k-12 schools around LA, performed for the Special Olympics, LA Lakers Half Time Show, Spaceship Launch Performance, Playboy Jazz Festival, Wallis Annenberg Center of Performing Arts, and Broadway Cares, worked with networks like FOX and BET, and have danced with various celebrities like Demi Lavato, Chris Brown, and Becky G.

My strive for positivity will help push you to your goals! I am very open and always wanting to learn so I will bring new things to the table constantly. Though, I am a firm believer in repetition and detailed practice. I have been highly disciplined throughout my years in the dance industry, and now combine my skills to create a diverse learning environment.

I can't stress enough how passionate I am about helping people! I plan to conduct a personal lesson that is designed for you. Working together we will create a plan that will exceed your expectations. We will create a comfortable, safe, creative, and diligent environment that is best for you! Small group classes are available as well!

About KaCee
KaCee is a DFW based dance instructor,performer, and choreographer. She creates dynamic choreography that is inspired by the growth she has seen throughout her journey and the growth she hopes to see in the future.

This pushed her to pursue more dance training by attending Arlington Heights High school. There she was introduced to many dance styles: jazz, contemporary, modern, and so much more. While dancing in Fort Worth, KaCee attended Dance Connection-FW.

Her time in Fort Worth gave her the opportunity to dance in works by Joy Atkins-Bollinger, Michael Myles, Tiffany Brown-Zebrun, Jackie Druzonavic, and Rachel Wade. She continued her dance education while attending The Universi
ty of Texas at Austin. She is the founder and former director of Bend Bandits , a UT dance organization that focused on bringing dance to under-served communities.
