I believe that
classical technique provides a solid foundation for every singer. Within the first 3months my students will understand the basics of posture, breathing, tone placement, support, diction, and phrasing.

*** Travel Equipment ***
I have a keyboard, and some sheet music. I would prefer the student to have a piano, and sheet music

*** Specialties ***
I have a B.A. in Classical Voice, and have taken 1 semester of pop voice

Sarah is very patient with my daughter. She tailors the class to her personality. She gets her to do the class in a fun way. She makes the class enjoyable but still focuses on her growth. She pushes Alexa enough to keep her going. She motivates her to learn. My daughter looks forward to her lessons. Recommend!

Tanya was terrific
She arrived on time with no glitches and was able to get music playing and class started promptly.
She worked with my 16 year old daughter Olivia who had a great time, and they made plans for what they will be focusing on in the future. Tanya is a gifted dancer, but even better, she is a great teacher too. !

My goals are to work on their coordination and flexibility along with proper ballet technique. All classes will be tailored to each student accordingly.

About Lindsay
Hey there! My name is Lindsay. I truly enjoy teaching everything in the realm of physical activity. I grew up dancing at Mark Spivaks Institute in Jacksonville, Florida. I studied under a Russian Prima ballerina. I played soccer. I swam. My lifestyle at a young age has reflected in my work as an adult. Nowadays I love yoga, hiking, running, art, and being a big sister! If I have one goal in my professional life it would be to inspire active living in today's youth. I completed my 450 hour pilates certification which compliments my teachings in every field due to the anatomical approach. Currently I work as a dance teacher, pilates instructor, yoga teacher and flexibility coach. My passion for movement will inspire you to achieve your goals. I love to make any positive difference to a client: in their day, in their body, in their out
look. I look forward to meeting you and reaching the finish line- whatever that may be!

I am enthusiastic about teaching online lessons as well. I find that online training works amazingly well, and is extremely convenient for people with busy schedules.

For Dance - Lindsay teaches ballet, social club, and basic hip hop and tap

· Pilates · In studio
I'm new to pilates so I can easily get confused. Not with Lindsay! She is so specific with the movements, I know exactly what to do next! Not only that, but how she articulates which muscles to work and how to make the most out every single exercise. Guaranteed to burn out your muscles, but then with her stretches, you leave feeling great. How a teacher speaks has always been a deal breaker for me. Lindsay's voice and her demeanor is so pleasant, encouraging, and fun! Also, her body is GOALS! I will follow her to whatever studio she goes to! Thanks Lindsay!

My daughter wanted me to find her a flexibility coach to help her with dance. Because we live in a rural community, this type of instruction is not available. I did an online search and was very fortunate to connect with Take Lessons and Lindsey. She takes a 30 minute lesson twice a week and has seen considerable improvement in her flexibility. Lindsey is not only a great teacher but a great person. Her and my daughter have developed a personal relationship. Lindsey is very knowledgeable, encouraging, and kind. She has been taking Lessons from Lindsey for 11 months, and we plan to continue with classes because of the excellent instruction she has received.

This was my first online lesson with Lindsay. I am a 64 year old woman who wants to learn ballet and in doing so become more flexible, agile and have better balance. Lindsay was very knowledgable, patient, and friendly. I felt that I was receiving real instruction and that we will make a good team together. Even though this was via FaceTime, I truly felt I had a one to one learning experience. Thank you, Linsday!

If you are looking for lessons in the style of Breakin' or more commercially known as Breakdancing, then look no further! I will provide you with easy to follow step by step lessons that allow ANYONE to learn how to dance whether you are just a beginner or an experienced dancer.

I have been teaching Breakin' for 10 years in both private lesson settings as well as classroom settings. I spent 4 years in University of California, Irvine dance department teaching a course on the foundation movements of the style Breakin'. I am also a member of America's Best Dance Crew Season 8 KINJAZ.

About Darren
If you are looking for lessons in the style of Breakin' or more commercially known as Breakdancing, then look no further! Darren will provide you with easy to follow, step by step lessons that allow ANYONE to learn how to dance whether you are just a beginner or an experienced dancer.

Darren is a member of The Kinjaz from NBC's World of Dance and has been teaching, performing and choreographing in the Hip Hop community for 13 years. He has also been a part of world renowned Hip Hop organizations such as Culture Shock LA and Kaba Modern and spent 4 years on the faculty of the Claire Trevor School School of the Arts at the University of California, Irvine as an adjunct lecturer of Breakin'. He has been sharing his experience and knowledge by teaching and training dancers of all skill levels, from college performing arts programs, dance
studios and online students from around the world, how to break with the knowledge that he has been fortunate enough to gain.

Darren's goal is to share what dance has given him in his life by providing in person or online dance courses for up and coming dancers who may be intimidated or self-conscious to start dancing or do not have access to experienced teachers or a dance studio with classes that interest them around them. His courses allow both new and experienced dancers from all over the world to have access to an experienced teacher who understands the ins and outs of how to break down movements to its simplest form, so a student can confidently learn a movement with correct technique, execute them to music and piece them together to create their own combinations whenever and wherever without having to step foot into a studio.

He aspires not only to help those in his local dance community, but also dance communities worldwide who may not have direct access to the techniques and knowledge that was shared with him.

Denise is my favorite teacher of all time. Before studying with her I was super nervous in front of the camera and crowds. She has helped me completely get over that, and even better, I now love being in the spotlight! I'm no longer getting stuck in my head when I'm speaking to the camera, or in front of a crowd. I'm even getting compliments on how strong my voice sounds. What I love most about having Denise as a teacher is that she truly cares, and does more than improve skills. I've learned valuable, unforgettable lessons with her and I can't recommend her enough. She will change your life!

Do you have a passion for dance? I do and I've been a professional dancer for over 20 years. I graduated with a BFA in dance and have danced with many notable artists, award shows and dance companies. I love teaching dance, helping you grow as a dancer and learn how to shine on stage! I have a gift for making anyone into a dancer and finding your own movement in dance. You will learn great technique mixed with stage performance and be leaping across the stage in no time. I teach a variety of styles so message me and let's get dancing!

About Keena
I graduated with a BFA in dance from The Ohio State University, one of the top 5 modern dance departments in the country. I took my first dance class at two years old and have been dancing ever since. I've been a professional dancer for over 20 years and I am trained in modern, contemporary, Hip Hop, Jazz, West African, tap, lyrical, burlesque and ballet. I am a dancer who believes that dancing is about more than just technique. You have to have technique but you also have to have stage presence and dynamic performance. That is what I am known for. I encourage my students to dance beyond technique and find your own individual expression as a dancer.

I have danced for many well known musical artists, commercials, films and award shows. I have a unique gift to be able to make a dancer out of anyone. I can see your movement quali
ty and style and help you reach your full potential. I teach in a fun and easy to understand way that gives you a balance of technique and stage performance. You will leave every rehearsal feeling confident and looking forward to the next one. I am also a professional actor on TV and Film and have toured the country in theatre shows. My acting helps me to bring a performance element to dance and I am able to communicate instruction and technique for easy understanding. I teach all levels and customize each lesson so that you are always challenged in a fun way. I currently teach at a dance academy that prepares and sends students off to the professional world so I am consistently in the world of dance every week and bring a freshness to our rehearsals. As a dancer I believe we never stop learning and growing.

I want to teach and work with dancers who are excited and passionate and ready to have some fun. You will see your technique improve, discover more of what you thought you could do and have a great time doing it all. With my versatility as a dancer/choreographer and actor you will discover dance in a new way. I really look forward to meeting you.
