Specific & clear in her instructions, open to feedback, patient and encouraging, courteous and respectful - not to mention a great singer. Looking forward to future lessons with Deborah.
Jeeyun
I was pretty nervous about taking a singing lesson, as it's something I've never done in my life. I'm so thankful I got connected to Deborah. She's a fantastic teacher and taught me so much about how our body works to produce sounds when singing and what I am doing. From the first lesson I was already given helpful tips and ways to practice things on my own! I'm looking forward to more lessons with Deborah.

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 am certified in Kuchipudi dance and would love to share my knowledge about this dance. I have been practicing this dance form since my childhood and I have earned a four year certification in theoretical and practical art of Kuchipudi.
Kuchipudi is one of the seven indian classical dance form. It is one of the oldest dance forms of indian culture which is usually based on fast rhythmic patterns complemented by a very flexible and mobile upper body. Its also a great form of exercise which involves graceful body and eye movements.

I recently fell in love with dancing, but before that I had little to no experience, so I know what it is like to be a beginner, and to struggle. However, through the blessing of many excellent teachers and mentors, I have progressed rapidly and now have some considerable skill in dancing, so I am able to help people learn and grow at their own rate. I have much experience teaching other subjects (piano, physics, chemistry, and religion), so I know how to teach and how to give constructive advice.

Stephen is an amazing teacher. He has been super patient, thorough, and clear as I have just recently picked up a guitar for the first time. He does a great job and covering music theory as well as chords, strumming, scales, and more.

"Rebecca Linton is an absolutely phenomenal acting teacher. I cannot express how grateful I am for her guidance and instruction. She is the best teacher I have ever had by far. She is incredibly knowledgeable about all things acting. She knows how to push her actors to improve beyond where they thought they could go. She had led me to get multiple Superior ratings at acting competitions. She is familiar with a host of different acting methods including but not limited to those of Uta Hagen, Stanislavsky, and Sanford Meisner. I seriously cannot express how grateful I am for her. She had had a profound impact on my life and taught and cared for me in a way no other acting teacher in the world ever could!"

I cannot recommend Zach highly enough."

4 Drama Techniques to Always Remember

Stars like Meryl Streep and Al Pacino make it look easy, but if you want to become a professional actor, don't expect to rely on talent alone. Even if you're a natural performer who can cry on command and memorize lines, you'll need to learn the following fundamental drama techniques to really master the art of acting. 1. Vocal Dynamics Your lines are just words until you deliver them, but unless your voice is well-trained, they'll still fall flat or sound forced. In order to accurately port …
