This dance course is focused on movement for actors. You will learn very beginner movements inspired by yoga and modern dance techniques. We can use this as movement therapy as well. I want you to feel and love your bodies at the end of it. I am very good at coaching choreography or a dance you need help on.

I just recently took a dancehall dance class on Zoom with Ayana. It was so much fun!!! I have a background in dance and a real club head but I have not danced in so long . My body was so stiff but the movement and the choreography got me loose . it was a great work out
and learned some really cool moves.. I recommend Ayana for your dance teacher for all dance student levels.

Carolyn has and is exactly what I was looking for in a voice coach. Like me, her interests in the performing arts are broad. I felt both excited and comfortable with her. She is professional and easy to talk to. I can sense strongly that Carolyn is full of love and compassion. I am so excited for the next lesson! Here's to the new horizon and everything in between! :) Thank you Carolyn for reassuring me that my decision to switch careers was a wise decision indeed. Dance forward.

My first lesson with Carolyn was very positive. She quickly assessed where I was and started from that point so we didn't waste time. She showed great passion for songwriting and a genuine interest in my development.

I have taught and choreographed professionally for almost 8 years, and started dancing 21 years ago. I am passionate about teaching the technique to dancing, but also how to move their body with style. I have trained and worked with some of the top choreographers in LA and have a large amount of experience in the dance industry. I can teach jazz, technique, hip hop, jazz funk, lyrical, and contemporary.With a background in yoga, I ensure you are listening to your body to prevent injuries and having proper form. I love to help kids and adults build their confidence, brand themselves as dancers, and give them top training with the years of knowledge I have.

Jenny is a wonderful, patient, gentle and positive human being and instructor. She was the perfect match for my young daughter just learning piano for the first time. My daughter connected with her quickly and looked up to her. She made learning piano fun and engaging. After 9 months of weekly lessons, my daughter chose to take a break to focus on her schooling but we hope to reconnect with Jenny in the future! Overall, our experience was extremely positive.
AC C.
Working with Jenny has been a great experience.

She has a wealth of knowledge in music. She was raised around music so it comes as second nature to her. Her experience definitely shows from theory to technique, structure to general perspective.

Jen's wide-ranging experience allows her to accommodate different learning styles. Even when I was unsure of which methods were most suitable for me, she was able to determine an appropriate approach. Each lesson is tailored around your preference while still maintaining steady progress towards your goals.

She's flexible, patient, communicative, and fun to work with. Her versatility has made learning piano so much easier and more exciting for me than before. I'm always looking forward to each session. I've also been able to learn about other aspects of music, as she isn't limited to piano; she's knowledgeable of other instruments and teaches dance as well.

One of my favorite things about Jen is that, even though she's easy to work with, she ensures that I've truly grasped one concept before moving to the next. It's also always great to see her play (:

Highly recommended
Matthew
Jenny is on time always. The first lesson, she had the books ready and was very professional. I am very happy with her teaching abilities.

"Miss Ashley is a breath of fresh Dance Education/Instruction air. She's energetic, fun and timely. She gets to the point. My daughter is thoroughly taken with her dance education approach and minute movement dissection and correction. We are coming out of Saudi, where dance is shunned and every camp Dance instructor is a volunteer parent with time on their hands, and into refresher Tap lessons with Miss Ashley. It's like night and day, at the very least. LOL! THANK YOU for your help in filling in her egregious Tap gaps while we are on Covid Evacuation to the US. We look forward to exploring other genre lessons with you in time, where possible. Any student would be in excellent hands with you."
