Ferlyn has excellent skills in teaching dance. My daughter has improved her dance techniques in 3 classes. We highly recommend her to everyone that needs dance instructor.
Dominique N.
Given all of the positive reviews, I am refraining from giving Ferlyn only one star. I am sure she is relatively competent as a teacher. The unfortunate aspect for which she is receiving such a poor review is a significant lack of professionalism.
I arranged piano lessons with Ferlyn for my mother.
Her first lesson (for which I was present) was fine.
I then found out that at their second lesson, Ferlyn showed up very sick. This was quite concerning, especially given my mother’s age. Ferlyn definitely should have canceled that second lesson and not showed up so sick.
Then, only two hours (!) before my mother’s scheduled third lesson, I receive a text message from Ferlyn stating the following:
“Hi Dominique, wanted to let you and your mom that piano lessons will be cancelled today because it is my Birthday! I will see her next week. :)”
This was incredible. This was a cancellation only two hours prior, not due to some emergency or even due to her illness which should have caused a cancelation the week before! This was because it was her birthday. Something that would have been understandable, were she to have let us know well in advance. I am sure she knew in advance when her birthday is.
This does not reflect on TakeLessons, as I have had great experiences with other teachers.
But this degree of inconsiderateness, first with regard to the illness and then with regard to the manner of cancellation, is appalling.

Meets you at your dance level and you move forward from there. Excellent attitude and knowledgeable instructor. Professional and thorough.

My tap dance lessons will be tailored to you. Let me know what your goals are and what your motivation is for taking these dance lessons, and I will do my best to help you reach those goals. I have been extensively trained and have had several years of experience teaching many styles of dance - Ballet, Tap, Jazz, Scottish Highland, and Ballroom (including International and American styles). However, due to the current pandemic and availability of space, I am only teaching Tap dance right now. I have worked in dance studios for several years and was able to teach a couple of beginning and intermediate social dance courses at Brigham Young University as a student instructor as well. I am passionate about all things dance and am excited to go on this journey with you.

She’s very attentive and pays close attention to detail. She also offers great feedback and helps you move forward.

If you are looking to get back into ballet I would highly recommend Jessica. She is truly outstanding and skilled in knowing how to safely strengthen and build back ballet skills. She is patient, listens and works with each individual students needs. I can't say enough about how she is transforming me into a dancer and I am not a young person. If you want to dance, Jessica will not disappoint, she will raise the bar and push you to new heights. I study 3 to 4 days per week and I highly recommend this dance instructor. Zoom works great!

Thanks Jessica, you are giving me so much confidence! I appreciate your help!

Great if you don't have any experience and want to learn the basics, or if you have a little bit of experience but want to brush up on your technique.

You can either suggest a song, that I will be choreographing to or we are just working on specific areas, that you choose. Class is all about you- in a encouraging and positive environment.

Lessons are customized to each student depending on your goals and needs.

The best part of teaching is when the student has that "Eureka!" moment: feeling the enjoyment of dancing, having confidence and control coupled with the ability to let go and create. I teach students to understand the foundations of movement, how to master the basics and connect into the complex. The how, the why and the what and how each dancer relates are imperative. I believe dance can be accessible to everyone. I believe my job is to help you fill your tool box.

"Wow is the word that comes to mind when thinking of Jessica. She motivates, challenges, encourages and inspires a stellar performance with every student she teaches while radiating with positivity. She is also an incredible listener, which I feel is extremely important when working through Zoom or even in the classroom. She is always checking in to really make sure you fully understand whats explained and leave no gaps in knowledge. I always feel like I’ve learned so much and leave so much happier after my lessons with Jessica! 10/10 would recommend to all that want to really learn and REALLY have fun!"

I wanted to learn tap and was very nervous but Jessica was very clear and made it a lot of fun. She also picks the best music. If you want a teacher that is understanding, compassionate, and talented, she's the one!"

"Love taking tap with Kristen! What I love about her is that she meets you where you need to be met and change her approach to teaching a step or skill so that it makes sense to you. If you are an adult beginner, she makes everything really assessable- especially if you don’t have any dance experience. You might go into your first lesson or class nervous, but by the end you’ll have learned how to tap and feel at ease and excited for your next class! Her class is the highlight of my week!"

"Chrystie is an amazing instructor! She is very enthusiastic, encouraging, and worked with my daughter's energy level. She used music appropriate to my daughter, and built up a routine over several weeks so my daughter could learn the parts. She made effective and efficient use of every minute of every lesson and appropriately pushed my daughter to learn, even though it was her first time taking tap lessons. I highly and ecstatically recommend Chrystie really to anyone because I am sure that fun, bubbly, energetic personality, combined with a high skill level, and excellent instructional strategies, can really help any student. Thank you again Christie!"
