Hardcore training and fun !
I've been teaching at my Alma Mater, Fisk University since I stepped foot on campus in 2010. I taught routines for the cheer squad and hip hop dance team. I also choreographed for numerous students on campus. Before college I obtained 15+ years of experience in many styles of dancing as well as cheerleading. I reside in the Bay Area, and have since advanced my choreography through training, performing with a dance company, artist development, teaching local classes, and more! I love working with children! I also love a great challenge, so if you feel like you have two left feet, I could change your world! Always remember, you are the artist and your body is the paint brush... Just move!

Denise has been teaching private lessons since 2008 and is currently teaches in Hollywood. All classes can be taught online as well except dance which is taught at the world-renowned International Dance Academy.
Denise is an award winning professional actress, and is also a hugely successful model. She started her own gogo dancing company in Canada from 2005-2011 and again in the USA in 2018. She has danced for events like EDC, ULTRA, and the World Olympics.
Denise has an extensive training background starting at a very young age in acting, singing, and dancing, and still
Her teaching style is personal and catered to you, making sure you feel confident to go for your dreams! Lessons will encourage you to step out of your comfort zone, but always in a nurturing safe environment. Work on YOUR goals and get one on one training made for YOU!

Let's start with the positives. Denise puts in a good amount of effort in teaching you. She's flexible with accommodating your schedule, and she tailors her lessons based on what your goals are. This is evident from her referring to her notes when beginning her lessons with me. She also isn't a clock watcher who makes sure your lesson ends straight on the minute unlike some other teachers.
Is she effective as a speaking voice teacher? So far, yes there has been some progress made. Her methodology might be a bit more different than other speaking voice teachers I studied under. Other teachers focus more on the phonetic sounds, while Denise linger more toward stretches probably due to her dancing background. If you don't like Yoga type of stretches, you may be in for a bad time.
Keep in mind that due to my focus on developing a voice for acting, I'm also not having a pure speaking voice lesson as my lessons are intertwined with monologue work too. If you wish to take speaking voice lessons for public speaking, your mileage may vary.
So why a one-star deduction? Denise at the start can be pushy with trying to sell you more lessons. I mean it goes without saying that of course you'll see improvements faster if you can devote more time to any class, but time and money are factors that everyone should always consider. Let's be frank, private lessons on TakeLessons aren't cheap (unless you're rich of course). I was annoyed when she repeated her tactic three times, enough that it affected my decision to nearly not renew my monthly lessons with her.
She did cease when it seem like I wouldn't budge. Nevertheless, the pushiness did leave my experience a bit tainted, which made me question her sincereness with her excitement and positive reinforcement at times. I continue to give her a chance though because I do feel there's an ongoing improvement with my speech and line delivery. Also because we get along despite being complete opposites in some ways (which seem to frustrate and intrigue her). Despite being my teacher, I see her as a peer in a way because of how close in age we are, but I digress as this review is about her effectiveness as a teacher.
I would recommend giving Denise a try if you’re an actor seeking a speaking voice teacher. In person lessons are still best, but she has proven to be effective as an online teacher despite being a tad pushy with having you buy more lessons from her.

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 love to work with other students and help them on their journey to become better not only as a dancer but as an artist too.
I consider myself to be a very diverse professional dancer, instructor, and choreographer from New York City. I have become well known through-out the dance industry and stage for my style, strong technique and charisma on the dance floor! Which stems from my deep love of movement, which began at a very young age.
My 15 years of dance training spans from Classical Ballet to Competitive Swing Dancing, and ranges from Hip hop to Contemporary to the Theater Arts. Over the past few years.
I look forward to working with you!
I look forward to meeting you!

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 have done this kind of process so many times on so many students already that's why I know that is possible and that's why this can make my dance lesson unique!
The dances that I teach are: Waltz, Tango, Fox Trot, V. Waltz, Quick Step, Samba, Cha Cha Cha, Rumba, Paso Doble, Jive, Salsa, Mambo, Merengue, Swing, Bachata.
