I just wanted one lesson as an intro to gymnastics, and Christian is great! Thanks to him I'm more confident with my backflip and with just one more lesson I believe I can get it down. Definitely recommend! I might add gymnastics to one of my hobbies thanks to him.

Christian has a very good way of breaking the concepts down to help me get in fantastic shape! I recommend him for anyone who really loves to workout without knowing your working out.

I am experienced in Hip-Hop, Contemporary, Salsa, West African, Jazz, and Ballet. I began my dance training in the church and then expanded to clubs and stages across the United States.

"A born teacher

Monica is a born teacher just as she is a born actor. (It's hardly inevitable for one to also be the other.) I was skeptical at first, but I found the exercise liberating. I've never been so out of breath! However, Monica understood and accepted my limits, which is cool, and she relates to her students emotionally, which is better than cool. Her method for teaching actors is not the only viable method or even necessarily the best, but she makes it work for her."
