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. !

About Nadia
Dance has played a strong role in my life for 30+ years. I am a professional dancer/choreographer. I love teaching both children and adults who have no rhythm at all but with a heart to dance, to dancers who are professionally trained. I enjoy bringing out of them laughter at themselves when they make a mistake, but instal in them when to take it seriously.

I bring very strong, professional and confident choreography to both all ages and levels of a dancer from beginners to advance. I have been working and teaching youth from ages 4 to adult for over 17 years. I additionally have training in tap, jazz, ballet, modern, african, lyrical, cheer tumbling, and competitive Hip Hop/Break choreography. I am as well a self motivator and a self discipline woman. It doesn’t stop there. I am a good candidate for a long term teacher and dancer with
so much loyalty and patience for students.

If you need choreography with formal events, such as weddings, bday parties, quinceaneras etc I'm your girl! I have a blast working those events.

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 R. Wong 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.

Darren was very patient and nonjudgmental. I think he is a very good instructor. I was a little unsure as to how well a dance lesson would go over the internet but he put those fears to rest. I give him five stars for his knowledge and because he made me feel comfortable.

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!

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 at Cal State University of Long Beach and I will be majoring in Business! From a young age I spent most of my time with my grandma. She taught me many things and to this day I have her and my mother to thank for who I am today. I am a person with many talents. I dance, I am a perfectionist, I love to decorate, I love designing rooms and homes, as well as fitness!

💃 I have been dancing my whole life ever since I was a little girl. At the age of 14, I enrolled in my high school's dance department. WIlson Classical High School has won 1st place in many Las Vegas Dance Competitions every year and have also performed at Disneyland yearly. I enrolled in dance all 4 years of high school and was also apart of my high school's spirit drill team, The Bruinettes. I have grown as a dancer, performer and entertainer and my p
assion for dance grows every day!

I teach beginning dance and intermediate dance as well as hip-hop, jazz, contemporary and lyrical. I also teach Intro. to Ballet. My goal after every class when I teach dance is for every one of my students to leave feeling confident in them self as a dancer, happy, open minded, more knowledgeable in the art of dance as well as the specific techniques that are important to dance that is taught in Intro to Ballet.

The thing i love about dance is that it is not only fun but it is also healthy and it helps build confidence and relieves stress! Allow me to help you achieve your goal whether it's to loose weight, get toned, or to just do all in 1!

🌹 As for floral arrangements and catering, I have a passion for that too. I absolutely love decorating and arranging flowers. Whether is for weddings, birthdays, parties or even its just for the home that you live in! I am a perfectionist however I am very open-minded about my clients taste and I will do my absolute best to make sure their vision come to life! Check out my Instagram pages:
💐 @pink.diamond.dolls
💎 @luxury.diamond.dolls
💍 @diamond.Bridal.dolls
If you don't have an Instagram you can also google my usernames and search Instagram!

🏡 When it comes to interior design as you might have guessed, I also love interior design. Growing up I never had my own room, so, as a young girl I loved to draw. I drew my own dream rooms on paper and now I even help my friends rearrange their rooms as well as decorate and even tidy up a bit. I can make a small bathroom look like an absolute luxury bathroom with the simplest things like adding a candle or even just painting the walls a different color. Small details like that can really make a difference! As I mentioned before, I am a perfectionist and if anything, everything will look it's best. From a modern clean slate look, to a 5 star hotel, to a bachelor pad in LA, I can design almost any room to the best of my abilities based off of what my client wants!

💄 And for makeup, yes, haha, I love makeup too. What can I say? Master of almost anything? Anyways I have been wearing makeup since the 8th grade. Yes I wasn't Kim K. or Kylie when i first started but i definitely learned ever since. I am a quick learner. I am self-taught and I know how to make your makeup not look cakey and hopefully last all day! Whether I am doing your makeup or teaching you how to do your makeup or teaching you how to do makeup on someone else, you will not be disappointed. I learn to work WITH my clients face not AGAINST, meaning if I do your makeup, you won't look like a completely different person. For example, if you have no eyebrows, no problem girl, I'll make sure you have eyebrows that perfectly frame your face. Also, I never judge my clients on how they look with or without makeup because everyone is beautiful and WE ARE ALL HUMAN! It's just makeup and sometimes makeup is a personal thing as is all depends on what my client wants. From the "no makeup" makeup look to full glam like Kim K. to drag, I can do it all to the best of my abilities! And yes i know how to match the perfect foundation to your skin tone as well! The base of the makeup is very important for a perfect makeup look! If it doesn't match its wack!

💌 Any other questions just ask! I would be happy to help and if you have read everything thus far, thank you so much for taking the time to read about me! I will reply either immediately or the same day!
