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.

I've been teaching ballroom dances for a few years . Within the first few lessons, you'll be able to learn couple of basic moves and start dancing with different kind of music. As time goes on you'll be able to learn more fun moves and go further in technique and have fun when you dancing) I specialize in ballroom dances as well as in wedding dance. I love working with students of all ages and experience levels and I can't wait to meet you!

About Olga
I was dancing and competing in Ballroom dances for many years and i learned that dancing can be very fun and help you to relax. Or it could be very complicated if you decide to reach certain level. But no matter how old you are and what experience you had, it's possible to become a dancer and enjoy it alone or with a partner every minute of your life. And trust me, from the moment you will be able to do first steps of rumba/waltz or any other dances- you won't stop!
Just tell me your goals and we will try to achieve them.

Olga taught us an amazing first wedding dance that she also choreographed for us. She combined Rumba and Foxtrot elements – with leans, dips and even a lift – into one unique dance that impressed (and definitely surprised) our friends and family at the reception. Neither of us had ever done any formal dancing before, but Olga got us to a proficient level in a very short time. Besides being a talented teacher, Olga is also very funny, as well as kind, and will make you feel at ease as you begin to dance, no matter your skill or comfort level. Highly recommended!

Whatever style your heart desires, we will seek it, and grow it!

About Tee
I have been dancing since I was a young girl. I have been a part of Dearing Detroit Dance Company for 20 years. There I learned technique in ballet, modern, jazz, and liturgical. I furthered my dance career by attending dance camps, dancing in school dance troupes, taking master classes at Marygrove college, then majoring in dance at Wayne State University. I started choreographing at a young age, personal and dance company related. I became Assistant Dance Instructor at DDD in 2008, while choreographing several numbers for the annual concerts. I also choreographed a jazz number to "Roxie", from the Broadway musical "Chicago", for my senior project in high school. I love to dance, I live for dance. I love teaching and I love choreography. I think dance should be taught in fun ways while still inserting discipline.

Dance Lessons with me are designed to be a fun, inviting, and educational learning experience. Each lesson is a time of positive enrichment, growth, and unlimited opportunities. Growing up, I always enjoyed going to dance classes as they were an escape route from my daily duties or simply just relieving my mind from math homework for a few hours. Now, as an instructor I strive to meet each students needs by teaching in a style that best suits them. My goal as a teacher is to help my students become the best dancer they can be while also helping them be the best person they can be by teaching them time management skills, discipline, and the importance of the arts.

While completing her undergraduate degree for the past four years Carnes also focused heavy on choreography and dance for film. Carnes has choreographed five works while attending UA, with three of them being chosen for festivals and other performance opportunities.

Furthermore, Carnes directed and choreographed two films, Beauty and A Chance in Time. Both films were selected for The University of South Florida’s Dance Shorts Film Festival (’15 & ’16), and A Chance in Time was showcased in the Dance Alabama Film Festival (’17).
August 2016, Carnes returned from her first International performance of Col/apse, at the International Collegiate Theatre Festival in Edinburgh, Scotland.

Katie Rose did a fantastic job during our private! She made sure we went through all the combos and took the time to show me where I was going wrong or what I was doing really well. She loves dance and it shows through her teaching methods and the passion she shows while dancing; would definitely take lessons from her again!

Katie Rose was punctual and did not waste time in starting the lesson. I liked her technique instruction and her ability to demonstrate as well. I would highly recommend taking lessons with Katie Rose to improve technique, or if you need choreography for a solo or group!
