I did yoga regularly with Mayuko when she lived in Seattle and it was an incredible experience. She's one of the best teachers I've ever had, just really sweet, fun, and knowledgeable. I knew very little about yoga, and I'm hardly fit or flexible, but I was able to learn so much from her!

I firmly believe anyone can dance. There should be no limitations: not ability, age, gender, body type, weight, or prior experience. That's why I teach dance to people of all ages.

My classes are rooted in classical ballet with influences from Balanchine technique. I love teaching beginners the fundamentals of barre work, turns, and leaps. But I also have the expertise to teach intermediate-level dancers who wish to improve upon their technique.

Each dance class starts with a barre exercise intended to challenge the mind and body. I will then guide dancers in a stretch and across the floor technique. Choreography can be worked on or taught when requested.

I began studying dance at age 3 in the Denver, CO area. Throughout my life, I've had the privilege of studying ballet, pointe, lyrical, jazz, and contemporary. After graduating from high school, I pursued an education at the University of Wisconsin-Madison, where I was also a part of the dance program. I quickly switched from ...

I received my first pair of ballet slippers at the age of 4, a gift from my mother, Nilufer, one of Turkey's earliest ballerinas (in fact, she was trained by Turkey's first ever ballerina Dame Ninette de Valois.) I have spent the last 14 years teaching classical ballet and contemporary dance to students of all ages and skill levels. Join me for a ballet class where we’ll work on stretching, body alignment, the 5 basic ballet positions, general ballet theory, and a healthy dose of exercise including plies, tendus, jetes, rond de jambe at terre and en’lair, fondus, releves and grand battements. These simple and straightforward combinations will improve coordination, mental focus, and self confidence, all of which are essential to dance! We’ll dance to a diverse playlist (not just classical!) and have fun connecting with our bodies and pushing ourselves to do more.
* Classes are open to any age, body form and experience level!
* Prior ballet and or dance experience is not required!

I have been teaching dance for over 12 years. My students have won many competitions and some of them even passed tough exams to enter Dance Academy programs, colleges and universities. I am very passionate about teaching dance and finding the right "key" to every student. I believe that all of us are different in the way we process new information, the way we learn, memorize, get motivated, and progress. I believe in order to get maximum result in such complex craft as dance there has to be a balance between having fun and having discipline. Each class has a set structure, short-term goals, and long-term goals, and of course, we do have fun. I love my profession, I love teaching and figuring out how to achieve the greatest result with that particular student by applying aspects of sports psychology on top of standard methods, and I love seeing my students fall in love with the craft and achieve great results.

I graduated from Moscow State College of Arts in 2008 as a choreographer. In the United States, I studied different dance styles (hip-hop, house, tap, vogue, jazz-funk

I didn't expect that I'll start to dance hip hop so quick. I've been dancing ballet since I was 3, now I'm 14. I never had any hip hop training. Transition to hip hop was very challenging in the beginning but within a month of training with Margo I started dancing hip hop very well, better than most of my friends who've done it for a long time! Thank you Margo!!!
Penny
Margo is a wonderful teacher! She corrected my technique in no time, helped me figure out why I just couldn't do certain things (pirouettes). I love working with her, learning from her, she is very patient with me and always finds the right words to motivate me. I am very pleased

I LOVE ballet. I practically live in my pointe shoes. [I remember when I first got them, I wanted to sleep in them the first night, I was so in love.]

I’m so excited to teach you all the basics/foundation/terminology you need!
