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 todays 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 outl
ook. I look forward to meeting you and reaching the finish line- whatever that may be!

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

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!

She's very flexible and very knowledgeable about different types of stretches for your body. She is helping me work on my splits and straddle. I usually can get a front left leg split after an hour's session. I highly recommend her for flexibility training.

Lindsay is very in tune with the needs of those she trains. She modifies the exercises to adjust for injuries but makes sure you are still challenged.

I have had experience in many different types of dance over the last 30 years. I love dance of any kind and love to pass that on to my students! I try very hard to make my lessons specific to the needs of each student not only in what I teach, but in how I teach them. I have had much experience working with students with physical limitations, as well as those who are very advanced. While I do focus on technique and proper performance of steps, I also enjoy getting my students to perform and enjoy dancing. After 30 years of dancing and almost 20 years of teaching I still love what I do and can't wait to share that love with you!

About Stephanie
With 30 years of dance experience and almost 20 years teaching experience, I am excited to help you learn to dance! I have done many different forms of dance from Ballet and Modern dance to Ballroom, Latin, Hustle and West Coast Swing.

After getting my BFA in Dance Pedagogy I began to branch out into the world of partner dancing. After spending some time competing in International Latin, I eventually starting competing in Hustle. I became a champion Hustle dancer, eventually being undefeated in Just Hustle competitions. During my time in Hustle I was also performing in dinner shows with a troupe of dancers and we would travel to events around the country. I was also exposed to West Coast Swing at the time, and this became my next venture.

I have reached the All-Star level in West Coast Swing and have continued to travel to eve
nts to teach, judge, and compete in both West Coast Swing and Hustle. All this time I have continued to study and teach Ballet and Modern Dance as well as Jazz, Ballroom and Latin.

I have been teaching on my own since 2008 and have had students of all levels. My students have been successful in competitions as well as being very strong social dancers. I love to teach and find that while it can be difficult to learn to dance, we can also have fun while doing it!

I was based in the Philadelphia area for almost 15 years and earlier this year have moved to the Charlotte, NC area. I teach at a couple of studios in the Lake Norman and Charlotte area as well as being able to teach online or in the comfort of your home. I look forward to sharing my love of dance with you, no matter what kind of dance you would like to learn!

What makes dance lessons with me unique is that I am very easy going and very supportive of my students! I myself, have been there before as a beginner, shy, scared to let loose and even try to dance in front of people, let alone one person! I never judge my students and I try my absolute best to make my student feel comfortable and motivated to learn how to dance! I never rush my students when learning any specific dance techniques because dance can be a personal thing as it all depends on the dancer themself. I teach dance with a passion because I want to try to show every student I have how beautiful and fun dance can really be! Dance is truly an art and with every class I have taught my goal at the end of every class is to make sure my student leaves being more confident, happy, openminded and determined about the true art of dance!

About Marilyn
I am a current freshman student at CSULB who absolutely loves to dance! Ever since i was a little girl i was always dancing to songs on the radio in the car, dancing at home, dancing to the music i would hear on tv and even to those catchy songs in my head. However, as much as i loved to dance, i was also a shy girl. But that changed when i got to high school!

I went to Wilson Classical High School in Long Beach and enrolled in the dance department! I was apart of Wilson's Dance Department all 4 years! Ever since then my passion and love for dance grew stronger everyday!

I was also apart of Wilson's Spirit Drill Team, also known as The Bruinettes. Being apart of my high school's drill team really made performing and entertaining at football and basketball games become an absolute thrilling experience and really helped me grow as a d
ancer amd performer!

This past summer i have been teaching my former teammates who still attend high school at Wilson about the basic yet important techniques needed for dance and i absolutely love teaching them!

My goal after every class is for each and every one of them to be a better dancer than they were before and to hopefully grow a passion for dance!
