Dan is a fantastic teacher. If you are looking for singing lessons you'll be hard pressed to find a better teacher.

When we started I thought that some people just can't sing and that I was one of those people. Not only did I not know how to sing, I had no idea how to *learn* to sing. Dan was super patient and I felt like he figured how I needed to learn just as much as what I needed to learn.

Singing is a life long journey, and I still have a long way to go, but the difference in my confidence and ability since working with Dan is like night and day. I recommend Dan highly.

James and I worked together for 4 months at an elementary school tutoring 3-5 graders in math and english. James is professional, intelligent, and creative. It was a pleasure working with him. He cares very much for the youth in our community.
We've stayed in touch via email and are developing a friendship I hope lasts a life time. He is good people.

MMTB's day-long intensives with Elena are astounding. DO NOT go in with a closed mind, or thinking you know things - if you do, you will walk away bitter and confused, because Elena will challenge everything you know - BUT you will walk away with a completely new perspective if you allow yourself to learn. The days are intense (as expected), so be prepared to abandon everything you knew on the fly - and be prepared to have your mind blown, and explore aspects of your art you've never explored before.

Have you always wanted to dance, but are too scared to jump into a group class? Are you taking classes, but feeling like you're stuck and can't figure out HOW to make your body move the way other people can? I can help you! I teach Zumba(r) Fitness classes and have had several students approach me for help. At first I was hesitant, I am NOT a professional dancer... BUT, watching their progress was incredibly rewarding! I can teach you basic Hip Hop, Tap, Salsa, Merengue, Swing, Cha Cha, Samba, you name it, we'll do it! Let's get you moving!!

About Gina

After college I competed in Bronze level Ballroom Latin Dance. I was also a member of SMCC Dance Company. My forte is turning someone who claims they have '2 Left Feet', into Bruno Mars;-) Let me know how I can help you gain more confidence, boost your cardio and toning during group fitness classes, or just get you moving! I have been Zumba(r) Fitness Certified since 2011 and I maintain CPR/AED as well as AFAA Group Fitness Certifications.

Are you someone who just loves to dance, but you're not sure where to start and you aren't and have never really been a studio dancer? That was once me, I went into college with never having any sort of technical training and ended up graduating with UNLV Department of Dance's Outstanding Performer Award. So I learned my style of movement from both outside and inside the studio which will allow me to bring the best of both worlds to you as an upcoming dancer and give you versitility in movement and choreography.

I have experience training, teaching, choreographing, and performing all throughout Las Vegas, as well as collegiate dance experience in performing in New York and South Korea with a select, elite group of dancers. I am trained in the techniques of and teach hip hop, contemporary, jazz, lyrical, improv, choreography and modern.

For my choreography, I draw inspiration from and truly loves to mix the genres of contemporary and hip-hop, creating a blend of hard hits and smooth releases.
