I specialize in Singing stage performance.
Being able to sing well is not enough to perform well.
Student needs to bring to stage at least 85% of what he is able to do in the classroom. Better - 150%.
In my class students meet in small groups, perorm in front of each other, and then we exchange notes. We do 2-3 rounds of performing and discussing to make sure it all works.
In my classroom student learns how get rid of stage fright, how to make stressful situation to work for his advantage, not to stand in a way of best performance.
I also use Stanislavsky acting method for singing performance.

As a 63-year old I was concerned it would tough for me to learn. I'm sure I don't retain and absorb like a 12-year old but I AM LEARNING TO PLAY. Justin is very patient and accommodating and I am inspired to practice weekly. Most of all I'm having fun.

Originating from America, Modern Theatre Dance is a staple study for any performer in training.

This style combines leaps, kicks, turns and incorporates both strength and flexibility to provide a solid base technique for every dancer.

I am able to tailor my classes for my students personal needs as well as offer 'at home' conditioning exercises for continued growth.

I am a teacher of 13 years and I love what I do!

Tap is a fun style of dance that combines percussive footwork and rhythmic choreography for a great workout. My tap lessons include a warm up, technical training, across the floor, choreography, and improvisation. We begin with the basics while focusing on correct technique to build a solid foundation and style. From there we continue to build skills by adding more advanced patterns, intricate footwork, challenging techniques, and choreography. From classical roots to more contemporary adaptations, tap offers exciting dance training to people of every age and skill level.

Book Tap lessons if you're looking to:
-Strengthen and tone your legs, core, backside, and more
-Increase stamina and endurance
-Improve balance
-Understand how to count music and find a beat
-Improve coordination
-Understand musicality, tempo, and timing
-Find and maintain rhythm with and without music
-Improve your dancing to music

Our company Alignment Healthcare has been taking advantage of Take Lesson's dance classes for several months now, instructed virtually by Jordan Wentz. We have tried various types (burlesque, wedding dance, hip hop and more) and Jordan has done a terrific job with all of them! Our employees including myself have provided positive feedback all around and look forward to her lessons after the long work days, it has served as a perfect way to have active fun while learning new skills. Definitely recommend as the pace can be suitable and adjusted for different experience levels! We plan to continue with Jordan as our instructor with different courses each time.

I thoroughly enjoyed working with Jordan Wentz, not only did she help resurrect my acting dreams from the grave, but she as well, with the proper tools given, helped me get all that much closer to the stage, and for that I am forever thankful.

"I am a dentist and my wonderful assistant was having trouble communicating with patients. Her voice was flat and monotone and she would freeze up when asked a question. Outside of work her voice and personality was completely different, and I wanted to see it come out when she worked with our patients. She did 5 online lessons with Eulis using Skype. I noticed a difference immediately, she was more confident and her personality began to show in her voice. I am very happy with the results and my assistant has stated that this has helped her in both her personal and professional life. She is no longer freezing up when asked a difficult question and is speaking in a more direct and purposeful way. Thank you Eulis!"
