A professional dancer myself, I strive to bring my experience and expertise into each lesson. We will begin with classic Barre work, followed by floor work and some choreography. Each lesson is crafted specifically with the student's unique goals in mind. I believe the best learning environment is a positive and supportive one, and I strive to truly help my students understand dance technique, while having a good time.

45 min or longer recommended, but express 30 min class also available.

Well organized yoga and conditioning lessons. Very patient with new students and strives to bring out the best from them.

Would not hesitate to recommend Emily.
Lisa
Emily's background in musical theater is perfect for teaching our 10-year-old daughter! We signed her up for jazz to help her with choreography. We love that Emily teaches routines with Broadway music. She has also been very responsive by email, and Emily tailored our lessons to best fit our daughter.

Emily is a wonderful yoga teacher and I look forward to every class! She is motivating, kind, patient and fun!

Private Yoga sessions with Alexandra are the best investment I made this year. I am so grateful for our weekly sessions and she has also helped me to develop a daily yoga practice of my own. My anxiety has improved tremendously and I’m so grateful for her care and guidance. Highly recommend!

Ballet is one style I would recommend to every single athlete. Ballet teaches body awareness and control. It elongates the body, builds flexibility and stamina. I love basic/beginner level ballet because it consciously helps you focus on every muscle and part body. With ballet technique under your belt other forms of dance can be picked up easier and athletes will have better grace and quicker transitions on the playing field.

About Dwan

Hiii... I'm Dwan and I'm so excited to meet with you and have a blast learning with each other. I've been teaching since 2000 and I love the growth I've seen in my clients; gained skills in multiple dance styles, them grasping the understanding of musicality & coordination, and their comfortability

I firmly believe anyone can dance. There should be no limitations: not ability, age, gender, body type, weight, or prior experience. That's why I teach dance to people of all ages.

My classes are rooted in classical ballet with influences from Balanchine technique. I love teaching beginners the fundamentals of barre work, turns, and leaps. But I also have the expertise to teach intermediate-level dancers who wish to improve upon their technique.

Each dance class starts with a barre exercise intended to challenge the mind and body. I will then guide dancers in a stretch and across the floor technique. Choreography can be worked on or taught when requested.

I began studying dance at age 3 in the Denver, CO area. Throughout my life, I've had the privilege of studying ballet, pointe, lyrical, jazz, and contemporary. After graduating from high school, I pursued an education at the University of Wisconsin-Madison, where I was also a part of the dance program. I quickly switched from ...
