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 ...

Monica has taught both of my daughters and they hold her in high regard. She is positive role model and makes learning cheers fun. She is very approachable and I could not have ever asked for a better Cheer Coach for my kids. They are now adults and still keep in contact with her. i would recommend her to anyone who wants to put their child into Cheer.
Autumn
Mrs. Monica taught me for about 5 or 6 years and she was my absolute favorite instructor I have had! The routines were cute and fun to learn, as well as perform. Monica cared about each of her students, got to know each of them very well, and wanted to see them do the best they could while still having fun. I love Monica and know whoever she teaches will love her, too!
Mandy
Monica does amazing work! She is awesome with the choreography of dances, cheer, etc. Monica's training is always well planned and she is super encouraging. I have seen her not only be able to train kids familiar with some of the techniques all the way to kids with special needs that have never had any training at all. Monica is AWESOME!

My daughter has only had her first lesson with Lindsay but we were both impressed with her. She is friendly and was able to make the exercises very tailored to her specific needs and goals. We are looking forward to continuing to work with her.

Lindsay has been an amazing yoga/ballet instructor for me. I started taking beginners ballet lessons with her in June of 2019 and she was so patient with me. I later on decided to take yoga with her a couple months later and she is just nothing short of awesome! She is very well spoken during yoga and really knows what she’s doing. She always accommodates with my needs and makes sure I’m comfortable with whatever we’re practicing for that day. For example she’ll ask how I’m doing that day and if I say I’m feeling anxious, we’ll do a relaxing and calming session, or we might do something more physical and energetic if I need to get hyper and start my day energized. She has obviously had a lot of experience in this field and it really does show. I’m super glad I chose lindsay to be my instructor and would never consider going with anyone else.
Maureen L.
I love taking my online classes with Lindsay! Having a really busy schedule, I thought at first this was an indulgence to have a class in the comfort of my own home, however I've rethought that since I've started. These are necessary to keeping, not just my physique in shape, but my ballet up to par, as well as my mental state of being calm, focused & happy. Lindsay is very skilled at shifting each class to what is best for me that day. She's skilled & knowledgeable, proficient, professional, friendly, fun & gives me a thorough workout! Thank you Lindsay!

"Beyond expectations

From our first phone call, Gina became invested in my dance journey. From modern dance, to ballet and contemporary, Gina has guided me into a new world of performance and dance. Outside of our scheduled lessons, we are loosely collaborating on a creative project - something I thought was years away until I met Gina. She taught me tactical dance fundamentals while also helping me navigate the dance and theater scene in NYC. (with which she is very connected) The best thing for me was her flexibility with the learning process. She encourages everyone to make their own journey, never forcing too much structure but always being reliable. I look forward to continuing this journey. Thank you!"
