Learn to dance for your wedding, social dancing, or just for a fun way to stay active! I teach several styles of Latin and Ballroom dance.

My lessons focus on connecting with your partner and being in tune with his or her movements. A proper connection makes it easy to quickly learn new steps, and to move together as naturally as possible.

For online/video lessons: You might think a partner dance would be hard to learn online; to learn to lead or follow well, it's important to have tactile feedback in order to feel the relationship between your movement and the results from your partner, and vice versa.

However, with attention to body mechanics and a focus on alignment and movement technique, you can still learn a lot online. Especially if the thought of group classes is intimidating for you, starting with online lessons can help you learn some basics at your own ...

Love Claire! I am a dancer by profession but was looking to learn to sing on the side. Claire has been wonderful! I have really enjoyed all of my lessons with her & am looking forward to continuing with singing! I would highly recommend. :)

Claire's the best! She's always upbeat and encouraging. She's great at explaining things and is super patient with a beginner like myself. You couldn't ask for a better teacher. Our sessions are always so fun and I'm sad when they end.

I've been teaching acting for more than 20 years and my students (and I) have gone on to work in theater, film, TV, commercials, modeling, voice overs, and more! Within the first few lessons, you'll you'll learn acting basics and start creating and acting as different characters. I have a large library of acting materials as well as acting literature. Acting techniques may include: The Meisner technique, method acting, classical language interpretation, improv, and acting for the stage, and more! I love working with students of all experience levels to learn how to "professionally pretend."

"Zach has the best critical eye I know. As a trained actor himself, he understands what it's supposed to be and guides you there without ever preventing you from being authentically yourself. He also brings his director's eye to self-tapes, elevating the scene by shaping the frame. The way we set up the camera for a battle scene allowed me to fully commit as an actor without worrying about the technical aspects of taping."
