Whether you’re in love with salsa, bachata, cha cha, rumba, tango, swing; waltz or just have an event you need to look good for or you want to make someone happy; I’m here for you! I’m very passionate about teaching and dancing and I make sure that everyone’s dance journey is filled with fun, friendship, understanding.
My students always leave with a smile, saying they feel more motivated and energized after the lesson. I adjust to their learning style, keep instructions clear, simple and do my best to make them feel free to express themselves; to let them know mistakes are part of the learning process and to move towards their specific goals with every session.

Hi! My name is Josh and I would love to be your acting coach. I am specialized in teaching musical theatre acting but have an extensive knowledge of many acting techniques that I use to help teach students and I even use during my own auditions. I have performed in many different styles of theatre and different stages ranging from a small 30 seat Black-Box theatre all the way to The Royal Opera House in the Palace of Versailles in France. Not only have I worked on stage, but I have also worked behind the table with a major Los Angeles casting director and a prominent talent agency in Los Angeles. I believe that I would be an asset to your training due to the fact that I am still in the musical theatre field and know what major casting directors and other professionals are looking for in performers. Shoot me a message and let's get to work!

About Joshua

Josh received his training at Syracuse University in 2020 where he received a degree in Musical Theatre. As an expert in his field, Josh looks forward to helping new students achieve their goals. Josh’s teaching style is fun, informative, and easy. He is specialized in musical theatre performance b

We have tried various types (burlesque, wedding dance, hip hop and more) and Jordan has done a terrific job with all of them! Our employees including myself have provided positive feedback all around and look forward to her lessons after the long work days, it has served as a perfect way to have active fun while learning new skills. Definitely recommend as the pace can be suitable and adjusted for different experience levels! We plan to continue with Jordan as our instructor with different courses each time."

Kelsey is awesome and really good at explaining techniques and also making sure you understand them. She's patient and encouraging. I know I still have so much left to learn and I'm really looking forward to it! She's very knowledgeable and you can tell she has a true passion for acting."

How to Become a Stage Actor: What Theater Students Need to Know

I’ve said it once and I will say it again, we are all actors by nature! Anyone can be an actor if given the proper tools and training.  There are ways to become a stronger stage actor and as performers we should always be learning and growing. When speaking to new actors, I often quote Michael Shurtleff, the author of my favorite acting text, “Audition”. He once said, “Use what you know. Don't worry about what you don't know.”  This couldn’t be more true! Acting is reacting and …
