The teacher is very nice to the student, helps the student in different ways, and explains problem so the student understands their mistake.
Charley
Meagan is very flexible and is a great teacher. She doesn't make the student feel self-conscious about answering wrong, She gently asks the student to explain how they came up with the answer and allows them to correct themselves. If the student doesn't realize their error during the explanation, she explains to the student wherein the equation they made an error. She also repeats the problem areas with the student until they have a full understanding of the process.

I sought Meagan out after my daughter came home with a failing grade in Algebra I. I am very happy with my selection, she is the perfect fit for my daughter. She is very flexible and I appreciate that she doesn't make my daughter feel like her lack of understanding of the subject matter makes her inadequate. I am going to continue hiring Meagan for the duration of the school year, my daughter really likes her and is learning far more than she is from her regular classroom environment.

She's great!

I am a teacher of 13 years and I love what I do!

Ballet is a great workout in addition to being the foundation for all technical dance. It's a great place to start and always to come back to. Ballet has many benefits to offer students at every level, which is why even Pro football players take it!

Through ballet lessons with me, you will stabilize find better balance and control, strengthen, tone, and elongate your muscles, have increased flexibility and mobilization, improve your coordination and confidence, and much more.

My ballet lessons cover basics of posture, placement, alignment, and turnout. We begin practicing essentials such as positions, plies, tendus, pirouettes and more. Once the student shows proficiency in these basics, we move into more advanced movement and choreography. There is strong focus on technical precision and skill to ensure students are learning the correct foundation so they get the maximum benefit out of their ballet lessons. ...

I’m available to teach private lessons for teens and adults interested in learning ballet for the first time, or who want to improve their skills. My strengths are patience, enthusiasm, and an unusual way of approaching dance. I’m not famous or particularly interested in becoming famous, so if that’s your goal, I’m not the right teacher for you. I strongly believe everyone can dance, and should. All bodies can learn to dance and enjoy themselves. Dance should be joyful, about self-expression, and a way of learning about your body and your spirit. Finally, I believe it’s never too late to start learning something new, and your bucket list should not wait until you retire.

About Kristen

I started dance later in life -- tap at 19 and ballet at 31 -- because I was so tall and awkward as a child. It never occurred to me that people my size could be dancers. I fell in love with dance as an escape from a stressful job teaching high school history. I saw such changes in myself the more

Kristen is a human that makes her students feel immediately at ease. She is kind, quirky, and hilarious, but more importantly, she is patient and meets students where they are to ultimately fulfill their potential and their goals. I first started taking tap classes from Kristen a few years ago as a nervous adult (25 yo) seeking a bare bones beginner tap class. Since then, having incorporated exercises, games, and routines to awesome music, I have come leaps and bounds, built up my courage and confidence, and am proud to officially feel part of the tap community. If you’re looking for an excellent teacher, regardless of experience level, look no further!
Katie O
I can not say enough positive things about Kristen and her teaching! She is one of the best teachers I have had. She understands that adults learn differently than kids. Kristen has a great way of giving feedback that inspires you to grow and learn. I especially enjoy the flexibility she demonstrates in her teaching style. If I am not getting something, the next week she has a different method to teach it and bingo, it has clicked.
Mona Jacobson
Kristen is an amazing teacher; she exudes a love for dance. Her teaching style is supportive and encouraging. Her feedback is provided in a gentle way. She is excellent at explaining all the steps in ballet and tap. I look forward to my lessons with her and have loved her teaching style so much during ballet that I am now taking tap lessons with her. I think Kristen is the perfect teacher for adults wanting to learn ballet and tap and I highly recommend taking lessons with her.

As a former ballet dancer, I know first hand how dancers are always pushing their bodies to the limit and constantly challenging themselves to be better. This mindset transitions into my teaching style and classes. Within the first few lessons, you'll be able to understand ballet terminology and as time goes on you'll be able to demonstrate and combine the movements. I specialize in ballet as a whole which includes stretch, barre work, center work, and strengthening. I love working with students of all ages and experience levels and I can't wait to meet you!
