I have been teaching dance for over 20 years. I specialize in ballet, tap, and jazz. I also teach lyrical.

About Kay
I have been teaching Piano for 20 years now. I have taught students from age 2 1/2 - Adult. I was self-taught when I was a kid and begun taking formal lessons as a very young adult in my early twenties. I graduated from CSULB with my BA in Music with a concentration on Voice. As a Music major, you spend a lot of time at the Piano. I became a member of MTAC in 2004 and a member of Sigma Alpha Iota in 1998. I have a great passion for Music and a bigger passion for the Piano and sharing the wonders of how beautiful the Piano really is.

*** Lesson Details ***
In my opinion, piano is the hardest instrument to learn, but the most rewarding. If you can play piano you can pretty much play any instrument. I believe that a piano lesson should be fun. I'm a strict teacher with a smile and a giggle. I push my students to greatness while helping t
hem love the piano through the good times and the bad. I'm a very encouraging but honest teacher. I compliment when warranted and I assess incorrect performances in an honest, but encouraging manner. I always let a student know that, though their performance was not their best, they can and will improve. It's always only a matter of time. I use the Schaum and Nevin series depending on the student's personality. I teach Classical and Pop Music. It's important for a student to learn the Classics and gain the ability to play things they like. I find the happy balance between the two. I teach Beginning to Intermediate levels. I also like to incorporate Music theory into the lessons because understanding the mechanics of Music helps make playing and creating Music much easier to accomplish. A typical lesson will start off with a hand drill warm up. We then will move on to the lesson book and repertoire. Theory will be assigned as homework. I look it over at the beginning of the lesson and discuss it and answer any questions in the last five minutes of class. Baby lessons go as followed: 15 mins. of play time and 15 mins of Music theory. I like to keep structure in my lessons but sprinkle a little joy and laughter to keep the atmosphere light. It makes for a much more attentive Piano student.

*** Travel Equipment ***
I expect the student to have a Piano or Keyboard of some sort. I may provide music on occasion.

*** Specialties ***
Classical and Pop

My goals are to work on their coordination and flexibility along with proper ballet technique. All classes will be tailored to each student accordingly.

About Lindsay
Hey there! My name is Lindsay. I truly enjoy teaching everything in the realm of physical activity. I grew up dancing at Mark Spivaks Institute in Jacksonville, Florida. I studied under a Russian Prima ballerina. I played soccer. I swam. My lifestyle at a young age has reflected in my work as an adult. Nowadays I love yoga, hiking, running, art, and being a big sister! If I have one goal in my professional life it would be to inspire active living in today's youth. I completed my 450 hour pilates certification which compliments my teachings in every field due to the anatomical approach. Currently I work as a dance teacher, pilates instructor, yoga teacher and flexibility coach. My passion for movement will inspire you to achieve your goals. I love to make any positive difference to a client: in their day, in their body, in their out
look. I’m an eager student, so I’m constantly teaching new stuff I’ve recently learned. I look forward to meeting you and reaching the finish line- whatever that may be!

I am enthusiastic about teaching online lessons as well. I find that online training works amazingly well, and is extremely convenient for people with busy schedules.

For Dance - Lindsay teaches ballet, social club, and basic hip hop and tap

Please inquire about rates for semi privates, group, and corporate training.

In studio lessons are available as well inquire for details.

Experienced performer of 13 years and teacher of 5 years, specializing in technique from beginners to advanced dancers! All ages welcome. Lessons are customized and catered to the needs/goals of each student. Not only will you be learning the basics of ballet, but you will learn the vocabulary and necessary tools to set a strong foundation for dance. Let's get started!

About Emily
Hi! A little about me... I grew up in Central California and grew up training in classical ballet under the ABT curriculum, performed as a principal dancer for Fresno Dance Collective, and then pursued my BFA in Dance through Alonzo King’s LINES Ballet through Dominican University of California. Throughout college I was a part of two non profit organizations that offered dance workshops and performances for underprivileged communities locally and internationally. Upon graduation I moved to Southern California to dance at the Disneyland Resort and began teaching ballet, pointe, jazz, and tech & turns ranging in ages from 18 months to adult.

My passion for teaching thrives off of the growth and potential I see in my students. I have seen a tremendous growth in my dancers, as well as myself as an instructor, and would love to build upon
my skill sets and help you to grow whether it be introducing you to your first lesson or helping to refine your technique and performance!

About Takaya
Hey there!

I’m Takaya. I’ve been teaching private lessons since 2013 and have loved helping my students stand out at their local social dancing club, perform for weddings and quinceañeras, polish their technique and routines for competition or auditions, and even achieve their health goals. I started training at the age of ten and through 11 years of experience competing in ballroom, Latin, theatrical, and showdance styles I have trained with some of the best performers in the ballroom world including Victor da Silva and Jerry and Virginia LeNoir. I hold two 2nd place Showdance titles in the World and a 1st place Latin dance title in the state of Florida.

It's my pleasure to work with people of all ages and approach every lesson with a focused, informative, patient, and fun attitude. Plus I just like to bust a move.

I've recen
tly relocated my practice from Florida and am offering reduced new client rates to learn more about the great community here. I look forward to talking with you and helping you reach your goals,
-Takaya

I’ve known about Mr Takaya’s achievements during his teenage years, and I was very pleasantly surprised to find out he teaches aswell! I’ve always loved his salsa dancing, I mean he does amazing Latin ballroom dancing aswell, but salsa dancing is what I was particularly interested in. Mr Takaya is a very patient and calm teacher, humorous too! After receiving lessons from him, my salsa dancing has increased! I can now dance with my new wife while not embarrassing myself in front of her family. In fact, I’m almost better then them now.

Takaya has got to be one of the most ambitious individuals I've known; he has always been serious about dance & has competed in ( & won) various competitions since I've known him. Dance is something that can take a lot of practice, therefore having an instructor like Takaya is ideal due to his very attentive & personable nature. If you are struggling with a specific type of dance he is most definitely going to help perfect whatever it is! I really couldn't recommend him more. Plus he's a goof, so I guarantee every lesson will feel more like a hang out while still learning some sweet moves!

The worst nightmare for a student is to be ridiculous when try to dance, well I believe that a good teacher is the one that can help you to change the way of how you see your self in the mirror! I know that I can let you change your confidence in your movement, your feeling for the music and make you enjoy music and step with your heart, not just with your mind!

I am a competitive ballroom pro/am student and I’ve been dancing and competing for years. I had the privilege of studying ballroom dance with Rosaria. She is one of the most talented and beautiful dancers I have ever seen. What makes her an outstanding teacher, however, is her ability to teach. She knows what needs to be done step by step. Whether it’s basic technique, or styling, or even choreography, Rosaria was able to help me improve each time. She works tirelessly at finding different ways to explain the techniques she is teaching. I learned and enjoyed my dancing more with her than with any other ballroom teacher. Ever. Her professionalism, her dedication, and her artistry are one of a kind.

My dance classes, whether taken in groups or privately, are safe environments to grow and learn from. With over 15 years experience as a dance instructor in Southern California and Europe (I taught dance in Italy and Austria), I make sure my students reach their highest potential whether pursuing a career in dance or pursuing a desire to incorporate movement into their lives.

About Bryan
My name is Bryan and I’m a dance teacher and choreographer in L.A. I teach from beginners to semi-pro dancers in schools and studios in the area and usually work out of dance studios in North Hollywood where I reside. I can also travel to you.

I can teach you the basics of hip-hop dance, jazz dance as well as some basic grooves you can take anywhere to practice before advancing into choreography. Over the course of weeks, I can make you more comfortable into different styles of dance and progress into more challenging forms of choreography.

As a teacher, I've taught all age groups and levels all over Europe as well locally here back home in Southern California. As a professional, I’ve choreographed and danced for Adam Lambert, Ricky Martin, Nike, Mercedes Benz, Ludacris and Bobby Valentino. My training and education comes from UCLA, the
London School of Contemporary Dance, and Millennium Dance Complex.

There are many samples of my work as well as on my website.

I have many references too from private students in LA as well as studio owners and schools.
