*** Lesson Details ***
Each lesson is based on the students skill level and goals in which the student is trying to achieve, rather it be training, preparation for an up coming audition or event. Below is a structured outline of what to expect in class.

Warm up- Stretch/ exercise
during this warm up there will be a specific muscle focus that we will concentrate on and will be different each lesson. This is the time to get your energy and stamina up to prepare for the lesson of the day.

Home work- If the lesson is preparation for an audition during this time we will discuss and strategize the basic skills needed to accomplish during the audition and or put together a skilled piece if needed as well. Also during this time we will recap what we went over during our last meeting to ensure that the choreography is being obtained as well as goals are being met with the progression of skill.

Combination- During this time we will work on a new combination in extension to a piece already in progress and thoroughly focus on execution of each move.

Cool down- Similar to the warm up/ stretch

Recap- Myself and the student will review class, what needs to be worked on at home, schedule and any other questions that may need to be answered.

Alexandra is the "cat's pajamas." She started working with my daughter Molly as a tutor in English when Molly was preparing for her CASHEE. This was not easy as Molly has learning issues (dyslexia, ADHD). Although state rules would have exempted Molly, she wanted to pass the exam and graduate the same way as her classmates. But she had already come up short twice. After 2 months of working with Alexandra once a week, Molly passed the exam with points to spare. Since then, being gifted in so many ways, Alexandra has stepped in twice as a personal coach. She helped Molly go through want ads and prepare for interviews, with the result that Molly got her first job which she has now help for almost a year. She also gave Molly help setting up her account in LA Casting and in looking through and responding to auditions notices. So, while I checked "English" as the 'subject' of this review, given the option 'Other' I would have filled in: Life Coach, Improv, Acting, and Job search and Prep. Alexandra seems to do it all. Immensely talented. Thanks!

Wonderful teacher! I've had a rough time with my voice in many aspects of my life, including teaching yoga, and Alexandra helps me so much! She will actually get up and do yoga to ensure that I am communicating effectively, in a timely matter, and that my pronunciation is spot on. She has so many ideas and exercises and is very passionate about what she does and helping others!!

About Lindsay

Hey there! I have a background in dance and have always been drawn to an active lifestyle. I love kids and have been working as a nanny professionally for 4 years. Putting two of my favorite things together (dance+kids) I thought what's better than being a dance teacher?!
I grew up dancing at Mark Spivaks Institute in Jacksonville, Florida. Where I had aspirations of becoming a ballerina. I took every dance genre from jazz to character to pointe. I love yoga, hiking, art, and being a big sister! I look forward to meeting you and your kids.
