I was a Ballroom Director for the student organization on campus during my college study, as well as joined the SJSU Ballroom Dancesport Team. Right now, I am offering private lesson to beginner and beginner-intermediate for salsa.

My lessons are catered in developing basic fundamental techniques and footwork. After the mastery of the basic fundamental technique and footwork, we will then work toward building patterns. My goal is to make sure my students are comfortable and confident enough in dancing to a full 3 mins songs. Throughout the courses, I will also introduce dance theory and music theory.

My son enjoys his lessons with Joe very much. He’s an encouraging teacher.

My son loves his drum lessons. Being eight, he naturally has an excess amount of energy and a tendency to chat but Joe has a way of engaging him and keeps him learning. Very positive and supportive as well.

Specific & clear in her instructions, open to feedback, patient and encouraging, courteous and respectful - not to mention a great singer. Looking forward to future lessons with Deborah.
Jeeyun
I was pretty nervous about taking a singing lesson, as it's something I've never done in my life. I'm so thankful I got connected to Deborah. She's a fantastic teacher and taught me so much about how our body works to produce sounds when singing and what I am doing. From the first lesson I was already given helpful tips and ways to practice things on my own! I'm looking forward to more lessons with Deborah.

My daughter has been dancing with Miss. Kerri for nearly two years. She has truly flourished in the time she’s trained with her. Miss Kerri has been warm and wonderful! Such a great instructor who takes the time to encourage each student to do their very best. We’ve recently had to switch to virtual classes and Miss Kerri has gone above and beyond for her students. We are very lucky to have her as a teacher!

I used to have a massive struggle with acting. I started from square one. I was determined to become the best actor I possibly could. When my acting skills finally got to a high enough level, it took me to Musical Theatre, Theatre, Opera and occasionally Film. I have also directed Theatre here and there. I am versatile and knowledgeable and currently performing as an Opera singer. I am excited to work with new students!

About Kade

Hi, my name is Kade Bennett. I am Musical Theatre actor as well as an Opera singer and straight actor. Acting has always been a part of my life and it is the #1 most important thing in performance. I love performing and working with students one on one!
