I am a professional opera singer, active performer, and avid teacher of voice. My teaching focuses on exercises that strengthen your voice so you can sing (and speak!) clearly, beautifully, and resonantly. These exercises will help reduce fatigue, raspiness, hoarseness, and strain in your speaking voice. Through our work together, you can expect to build confidence in your speaking voice and to more freely express yourself. I hope to hear you soon!

Joshua makes every lesson exciting and educational. He's very encouraging and creates a productive yet safe space, which allowed me to feel comfortable in my not so excellent singing moments. I am absolutely amazed by the grow he's helped me achieve in such a short amount of time.

Hi Ms Bethany, this is Sheenu(Gia & Dia's mom). I was just confused after the class coz I had signed them both for singing lessons not theory lessons. But as far as I know you gave a great class on the basics of theory, which was wonderful. Thank you so much for your excellent class. Please let me know if I need to do anything more to change it to singing lessons.
Thank you!!

Kind regards,
Sheenu.

Students will focus on creating and executing unrestrained contemporary movement based on learning and understanding their own body and way of moving. Each class will include strengthening and stretching exercises to develop and maintain the body as well as the exploration of the body in contemporary movement (floorwork, gesture phrases and expansive combinations.) Lesson plans will focus on sparking the students comfort and creativity in free movement, improvisation, engaging movement activities and warm-up, as well as challenging movement combinations to accomplish the needs and goals of the students My teaching style emphasizes the use of repetition, imagery, demonstrations, and the understanding of anatomy.

I'm extremely new to ballet and dance in general (for reference I'm 16). Briana was very patient and an amazing teacher! Very friendly and welcoming while still being very professional. It's great to get the exact corrections I need without feeling bad about it and yet still work on it until proper. Very happy and pleased!
Taylor C.
My daughter had a great first session. She identified my daughters areas of weakness and began immediately to help improve them. Looking forward to our next session.

I am already worried that if I tell people how amazing Briana is that she will get too booked up for me :) She is a great instructor with a huge heart. Loved it.

"I had just met Chad briefly before we started working together. I will never forget working with him. He listens to your thoughts and needs and maintains an open line of communication all throughout his teaching process.

As an instructor, he won't stop until anywhere short of what he believes you are capable of as an actor, so when you work with him be prepared to be pushed to your potential."

"Christine pays attention to the needs and level of understanding of each student. The ways she has taken time to instruct me, have not only taken me to another level, but then she'll turn around and explain it to the class, taking us all to another level as a group. She does in one class what some instructors I've had in NYC couldn't do in a month. She's patient and a great listener, which helps make her instruction so clear and incredibly effective. Including classes I've taken in LA, NYC, Indiana and Florida, Christine Alexander is easily the best Improv instructor I've ever had."
