Learn to dance with Ferlyn!

My History of Dance:
I have many dance genres within my history of dance. For a more accurate look into my experience and resume, please refer to my entire profile.

My Teaching Method:
I assess each students' levels, knowledge and styles of learning, determine the best learning paths to incorporate into the lesson and bring a "natural movement" approach of training and education.

PLEASE NOTE:
Any advanced, duet, group, weddings, birthdays, or any special occasion will differ than the usual lesson rate.

About Ferlyn
My Teaching Philosophy:
"Everyone is capable of dancing, playing an instrument, and understanding music & art performance; it is the desire, drive, determination, dedication and discipline instilled within a person and the guidance of my company's methodology that will bring these abilities to light." - Ferlyn

I believe each and every person has a unique brand of movement, understanding of music, and learning style for any dance form or instrument. Whether it is hip hop, breaking, ballet, jazz, tap, ballroom, dancing for a wedding, birthday, or flash mob, playing the piano, singing or even learning the theory of music or dance, I make sure to bring out the best quality within your learning, expand that knowledge and encourage you to become your fullest potential as my student. I bring a different light to each lesson of dance, piano a
nd/or music and bring your abilities to a level that is more knowledgeable, adequately refined, near to perfection and professional over time, and definitely enjoyable.

My Biography:
I started at the age of 5 with the desire to perform and entertain. With the drive of a freestyle & street dancer, I emulated Fred Astaire, Gene Kelly and Michael Jackson as a few of my dance inspirations. I also grew up driven into the background of piano, having trained in various methods such as Alfred, Bastien, Faber, Carr-Glover & Glover, Thompson and Schuam, expanding my knowledge and range as a pianist of 25 years.

In Los Angeles, I was determined to make dance my professional career and earned my Baccalaureate in Dance at California State University, Los Angeles. I learned alongside notable and popular mentors and instructors, training in modern, hip hop, breaking, popping, locking, house, tap, jazz and ballet. I choreographed for weddings, birthdays, within multiple shows, as well as became an advanced member of Cal State LA Jazz Tap Corps and the campus' hip hop crew, Team Flight.

Under much dedication for my professional career, my experiences exponentially grew after college as the Dance Choreographer & Director for Crenshaw Arts/Tech Charter High School's dance troupe, CATCH Kids, a troupe renowned for being featured on the Tyra Banks Show and catching the eyes of a few known performers such as Tommy The Clown, Debbie Allen, and Janet Jackson. I was a Dance Instructor in various studios such as the American Vive Dance Foundation, King's Dance Center, Expressions Dance and Movement Center, and Kruciaal Element's The Dancehouse. I worked with Kruciaal Element Dance Company as the previous Assistant Director and part of their freestyle dance crew, Stylematix, and performed in shows and events across San Diego County and Los Angeles County, including Monster Bash San Diego, Mardi Gras in The Gaslamp District, Dancescape, The Hot Spot Alhambra and The Moxie Showcase.

My current disciplines are focused and centered around Southern California as the CEO & Director of a Dance Company. I aim at providing a unique family of dancers and training musicians to be at their best. I am working on several upcoming pieces and providing a dance company that integrates dance community and dance industry knowledge, with a side of the 3 Heart-"Be3ts". Additionally, I have extensive knowledge and experience in Filipino traditional dance, ballroom, social and line dancing, as well as a background in stage management, set design, and vocal training. My personal goals are to continue to express my passions, develop my talents, and especially motivate others to find their own true inner self, dancer, choreographer, musician, performer, entertainer and/or artist.

Given all of the positive reviews, I am refraining from giving Ferlyn only one star. I am sure she is relatively competent as a teacher. The unfortunate aspect for which she is receiving such a poor review is a significant lack of professionalism.
I arranged piano lessons with Ferlyn for my mother.
Her first lesson (for which I was present) was fine.
I then found out that at their second lesson, Ferlyn showed up very sick. This was quite concerning, especially given my mother’s age. Ferlyn definitely should have canceled that second lesson and not showed up so sick.
Then, only two hours (!) before my mother’s scheduled third lesson, I receive a text message from Ferlyn stating the following:
“Hi Dominique, wanted to let you and your mom that piano lessons will be cancelled today because it is my Birthday! I will see her next week. :)”
This was incredible. This was a cancellation only two hours prior, not due to some emergency or even due to her illness which should have caused a cancelation the week before! This was because it was her birthday. Something that would have been understandable, were she to have let us know well in advance. I am sure she knew in advance when her birthday is.
This does not reflect on TakeLessons, as I have had great experiences with other teachers.
But this degree of inconsiderateness, first with regard to the illness and then with regard to the manner of cancellation, is appalling.

What can I say about Jaami... well... she is just AMAZING!!! I love her free spirit, her love toward dance, her smile, enthusiasm, her values as a person, and her love for animals. This was only the first time I took a dance class, so I did not have much experience. However, I love hip hop dance. I read a couple reviews about Jaami's dance companies so I was both excited and nervous to try. BUT, the style in which Jaami teaches makes hip hop very easy to learn. Step by step. I felt that she really wanted me to learn and was really focused on helping me. Thank you Jaami for sharing your love for hip hop with me! Look forward to dancing with you again.

Ozone Park, NY
View Full Profile

I practice an Indian Classical dance form called Kuchipudi which hails from South of India. I have been teaching dance for more than 5 years now. I have done various workshops internationally and represented my dance style in various global platforms. Indian classical dance allows you to discover not only the beauty you carry physically but also let you discover the spiritual dimension of you. Each session will be a journey of catharsis. Each gesture, pose and movement you learn in a session holds a lot of spiritual or mythological significance. It is not just a physical workout, but a journey where you will learn tonnes about Indian culture, traditions, fashion and spiritual outlook. You will also learn a little Sanskrit and Telugu (south Indian language) while taking lessons with me. I am a perfectionist and very demanding but at the same time very fun. Your commitment and discipline drives my enthusiasm.

About Yamini
I am a professional Kuchipudi dancer. I have been practicing this dance form for more than 12 years. I am the disciple of renowned Guru Padmasri Dr. Sobha Naidu. I am classically trained in Carnatic Music for about 8 years. I have been teaching for more than 5 years. I am a performer, choreographer, instructor and dance model. Teaching is something I enjoy a lot since I feel like a sculptor who gives life to a stone.

Have fun while learning something new, or improving on a skill you've been working on! I have never met a person that was unteachable. I specialize in Ballroom and Latin Style dancing and love to bring passion and fun to every lesson.

I grew up dancing Ballet, Jazz, Tap, and Baton, and later added Hip Hop, Modern, and Ballroom to my repertoire. I spent four years as an instructor and manager at Arthur Murray and really fell in love with teaching. I miss being at the studio on a daily basis and am hoping to bring dance and joy to more people via takelessons.com.

I also specialize in wedding dance instruction - whether you are looking for a choreographed first dance or just to feel comfortable moving together on your big day. I am your girl!

About Melissa
I've always loved to dance. I took every lesson available as a kid, choreographed dances in the back of my first job during downtime (Subway Sandwiches in Leola!), studied Theatre, Film, and Dance in College, and quickly moved through the ranks at Arthur Murray Dance Studios as a Silver Certified Instructor and Manager.

Not only do I have a passion for dance, but I also have a passion for people. I loved teaching at Arthur Murray and watching how dance positively impacted both my students and myself. I was also named Top Instructor and Top Executive during the 2015 Arthur Murray International Dance Festival.
