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

Interest in learning salsa? Want to impress your friends? Or, is there a wedding coming up and you want to learn a partner-dancing? Maybe, you just want to improve on any basic skills or techniques?

My name is Andrew and I have been dancing for more than 7 years, starting with bboying in high school and then Latin dancing. 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. By combining theories with body mechanic, I am striving to ...

I got a great vibe in his initial emails, so when we first met it was a though I knew Frank.
My kid loved his workout. Frank challenged my kid...kept him busy and he didn’t get hurt. My kid was dead tired after his lesson and that’s a good thing.
We will be back!
Leslie G.
Frank was amazing with my 9 year old. Very professional and fun, with an emphasis on safe technique.
Julian N.
When I spoke with Frank on the phone, he was apologetic that there will be construction going on during the private parkour lesson in the facility. I told him I did not mind as long as his instruction was great. Well, the lesson with Frank proved to be outstanding. He had a positive energy, was very encouraging and patient, and he knew how to observe, break things down to manageable pieces, and build on student's success. My 13 year old son was also impressed with Frank and really liked the way he taught.

Gina is so knowledgeable in so many areas of dance- technique, expressiveness, somatics, book recommendations, energy work. She is a rare gem of a teacher. Someone who goes way beyond a typical dance class. She has so much experience to draw from. 👏🏽👏🏽👏🏽👏🏽
Belinda and Daniella
Very good first lesson. It was a sound, thorough evaluation, along with a positive, encouraging exchange of ideas and detailed technique work between my child and Ms Gina. Ms Gina gets down to work quickly and kindly. Her depth of knowledge is impressive and refreshing. Amazing lady! Thank you!
Tina R.
Gina is a fantastic teacher. She has an eclectic taste in music which I love. She breaks down steps easily and is very encouraging. She also has many creative and expressive ideas like dancing to lines of poetry to get the body moving. Thank you Gina for the great lessons I will certainly be continuing!

Hello!

Writer / Director
Based in LA/NY
Haitian American
Graduate of Bristol Old Vic Theatre School

I love actors and I love stories. I enjoy working in easeful environments so my aim is to create that space for you so you can be free.

Each session will include:
• A read of the scene(s)
• I'll pose questions to you (as the character) in the story
• We'll run through the feelings/emotions of the scene from your character POV
• A Fun-Through

Homework for you:
Daydream about your life as the character in the story

You'll love working with me if quick turn-around self tapes give you anxiety and you want a reader who can calm you down.

The way I like to work on stories is simple. Easeful.

I am trained in Meisner, so I'm happy to play a little here with you.

Looking forward to meeting you.

Daphne

Can You Really Learn Contemporary Dance Online?

Contemporary dance is the most expressive and subjective dance form, making it more accessible to outsiders and helpful as a supplement to other dance training. Contemporary choreography techniques help dancers harness the energy and emotion of their own bodies, resulting in a more fluid and organic form of movement that can appear effortless and completely improvised to the casual observer. You have a lot of options when it comes to learning, practicing, and performing modern dance. And with t …
