Private Dance Teacher

I have been teaching dance for about 4 years now. I have taught ages 3 to 20 years old. I have danced since I was 4. I also did gymnastics. I do not have a dance room in my house, and my classroom is occupied, so for dance, it would have to be at another location. I teach different styles. I prefer to teach elementary/middle school students. I do enjoy young children. It is hard for them to focus. My goal is for the dance student to feel confident while dancing, and learn dance technique.

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.

Anastassia is a great teacher of dance! She listens and genuinely cares about all her dance students. She has opened my eyes to how dance is not only enjoyable, but can increase your confidence in all aspects of ones life. Going into her studio is feeling like you are part of her family. I moved to Florida six months ago & started taking her classes with my brother ... so happy we found this dance studio!
p.s. I really enjoy dancing & spinning around the floor with Dennis ... Anastassia's other dance teacher too!!!

I am a classically trained dancer with 20 years experience in performance. I have always been passionate about historic costumes and was introduced to historic dance while getting my degree from Ga. State University. I am currently the director of the Atlanta Historic Dance Company. I've performed, taught and choreographed for performances on stage, at historic events and in the film industry for the last 10 years.
Historic Dance can run the gamut between beginning level dances up to professional level performance. I can tailor your lesson to fit your needs. The most popular lesson at the moment is the 1920's Charleston. I can also offer lessons in popular social dances from the Renaissance up through the 1960's.

I have had the honor of knowing Kat Nagar for over 5 years. She is a most patient teacher, teaching me everything from 18th-century court dance to 1920s swing.
I highly recommend her as a resource to teach all levels.

I started taking classes with Dr. Sindhoor six years ago after decades of Bharata Natyam learning and performance. I am continuously learning something new from her. She is flexible, understanding, and yet maintains the highest artistic standards. I strongly recommend her to any dancer looking for a dedicated, compassionate teacher in dance and life."

"Jordan is an extremely experienced and very talented instructor. Speaking for someone with extremely limited experience in dance, they were willing to put me at ease in order to clearly and directly guide me in terms of building an essential foundation of skills, while also showing the utmost patience and care to be constructive in correcting my many errors. They are also very prompt, very well organized, and professional with regards to contacting clients and working to ensure that the lessons are held online without difficulty. I would very highly recommend Jordan for anyone interested at any level of experience, particularly given their veteran skill and wealth of knowledge."
