I have worked in a choral setting with Ellen, where she seamlessly brought us together for a large variety of 3 and 4 part harmonies. She is a great teacher. I have done some audition prep with her in the past and I am now taking individual voice lessons online. Ellen is great, and an accomplished solo jazz singer herself!

Learn to dance for your wedding, social dancing, or just for a fun way to stay active! I teach several styles of Latin and Ballroom dance.

My lessons focus on connecting with your partner and being in tune with his or her movements. A proper connection makes it easy to quickly learn new steps, and to move together as naturally as possible.

For online/video lessons: You might think a partner dance would be hard to learn online; to learn to lead or follow well, it's important to have tactile feedback in order to feel the relationship between your movement and the results from your partner, and vice versa.

However, with attention to body mechanics and a focus on alignment and movement technique, you can still learn a lot online. Especially if the thought of group classes is intimidating for you, starting with online lessons can help you learn some basics at your own ...

I teach the voice as a functional tool to be used for self expression and communication with others. If you've ever struggled with projection or vocal fatigue, developing the voice is for you. I believe the voice is best developed through singing, as it works the voice in a way no other medium can.

Whether you are preparing for a presentation, learning lines for a play, or trying to maintain vocal health for everyday speaking tasks, you have a place in my studio.

Choirs are a wonderful place to grow as a singer, musician, and friend. As a choir director and coach, I enjoy finding the best repertoire and combinations of voices to enhance every choir's sound and experience in the group. I have taught children's choirs in San Diego and Los Angeles as well as been involved in co-ed and all-women's choirs over the years. As a choir director, I hope to spread the importance of community in choirs while having a fun time and expanding diversity of repertoire.

What makes dance lessons unique with me is that I have studied so many styles of dance until I decided to focus on contemporary ballet. I grew up studying classical ballet at the esteemed Ballet west academy while also attending a competition studio. This allowed me to build a string ballet technique while also dancing contemporary, hip hop, ballroom, tap, and many more. I graduated from the Alonzo King Lines Ballet B. F.A. program in 2019 where I was able to develop an knowlede and passion for dance is so much deeper than I ever knew possible. Since then I have gone on to perform with many contemporary dance companies in San Fransisco, while mainly being a dance artist with SFDanceWorks. I have also attended many dance intensives including Hubbard Street Dance Chicago, Netherlands Dans Theater, and SPRINGBOARD Danse Montreal, and can offer coaching on how to prepare and apply to these institutions as well as college dance programs. I have been teaching dance to all levels and ages ...

My first lesson with Zach was great! 5 stars. He asked the right questions as to what aI am looking to do. And we quickly came up with a lesson plan that with the right amount of work in my part will get me headed in the right direction. Zach does a great job of making his students feel comfortable and good about their abilities.

"My 7 year old boy did online hip hop lessons with Miss Kay, she was WONDERFUL! She was kind and encouraging and my son grew in confidence and his love of dance from her encouragement and instruction. He looked forward to these classes all week, he screamed, "that was soo much fun!" frequently when we signed off. She even educated him on the four styles of hip hop and now he is eager to learn a little bit of each of them. Couldn't recommend Kay more highly. Such an all around kind and genuine person and positive influence in my son's life each week. Grateful for her."

"I have had the opportunity to learn acting with Gina and it has been great so far. When I signed up for the lessons, I signed up with Gina because of her credentials as I never had an encounter with her. From my first class itself she has taught me a lot about acting specially stage acting and that too with great enthusiasm. I now feel like pursuing it further. She is quite knowledgeable specially in her field and every moment that you are in the class with her, you are learning something new. I would highly recommend her, doesn't matter if you are just getting into the field or trying to set your advanced level stage, her talents will teach you something new that would take you to the next level. I hope you can take advantage of learning from a Great Artist like Gina.
P.S. She is a great Dancer and a great Musician.

Good Luck!"
