Chris is one of the most down to earth, well rounded, and talented people I know! He is a master of many crafts and makes me feel calm and at peace. He is the best yoga/Pilates coach, and has so much to offer as an experienced singer/actor/performer with an extensive theatrical background. He will brighten your day and dedicate himself to helping you perfect your craft. I highly recommend him!

I am here to make dancing enjoyable, fun, exciting, comfortable...... I can go on and on, but my goal for all of my students is to gain the confidence that is lacking. Any one can be a dancer and that's what I believe. I understand the awkwardness feeling as a new dancer and it is not fun starting off, but what made me get passed that stage of awkwardness was the amazing teacher that seen potential and helped me take my dancing to the roof. Now, as a dance instructor I thrive and seek to give that same motivation to my students. I don't mind explaining something multiple times or in a different way to make sure you understand it. Trust me, you won't have to deal with an impatient instructor like most would have to. You want to be that awesome dancer? Lets make it happen then!!!!

About Johnetta

I am a professional ballroom instructor as well as a dance choreographer. Dancing has been apart of my life since I was a child. I've been teaching for over 3 years now and I enjoy every minute of it. I became a dance instructor because I want to give the art and passion that I have for dance to ot

Now, imagine yourself at a wedding, a party or even on a hot date and someone asks you to dance, show off your moves! How would you feel? Maybe you’re too shy, think you have no rhythm and you rather not embarrass yourself, in front of people.

Style Your Motion makes people feel the opposite by breaking down movements into simpler steps so that the beginner can focus on their style and rhythm. The goal we work towards with clients is being able to freestyle dance - in other words; moving to almost any song that comes on at a wedding or party. So forget all those dancers who have taken classes for years and focus on you: the person who wants to learn how to freestyle dance and of course look good doing it!

Since opening, Style Your Motion has gotten over 100 clients of which a significant amount are returning clients. They have learned the techniques needed to freestyle dance and find their style in motion. So, what is your style in motion?

About Patricia

There is this idea that some people are born with rhythm and born knowing how to dance, and some aren’t. There is also the misconception that memorizing choreography is learning how to dance. Patricia believes that dance is a form of expression that can help people from all backgrounds not only wor

Great first session!!
Yuliya
Patricia did a fun and energetic hip-hop class at my company event. I enjoyed it so much I asked her to organize a hip hop routine for my 9 y.o. daughter's birthday party. Patricia worked with me to prepare a song and a routine suitable for kids' level and interest, and was extremely nice and attentive to details. She was great with the kids. Everyone loved the party, and I got a lot of compliments. My daughter said it was the best birthday ever!

"Rebecca is very accommodating to my needs as I develop my journey into voice over acting. We have spent much time understanding how character dictates the type of voice I use, and I have grown in the range of voices I can do, as well as my proper pacing. Her husband Jim also has an amazing recording studio where we have gotten to experiment with cartoon voice overs to build my reel."

"Super Enjoyed our first online class..even with some technical difficulties due to my antivirus software firewall, or browser or the weak wifi in my place or something...Truly enjoyed it. Jason was very kind and patient, while we tried to fix the technical aspect. Once we got started on the phone because video and voice didn't work; I really learned a lot, and gathered insight into Acting that I couldn't get from a book or other classes that I have taken. I'm truly blessed I get the opportunity to work and learn from Jason. I am super excited and can't wait till our next lesson. I will call technical support at Take Lessons to get technical help to fix the issues, and will buy a portable wifi hotspot if I have to solve the video and sound issue. Jason is patient, kind, very nice, professional, extremely knowledgeable, I can't say enough good things. Thank you very much for all your help and your time. I look forward to the journey ahead... Take care. Aloha. -Bobby"
