About Roger
I have been providing tennis lessons, both private and group, for more than 25 years. I have extensive experience teaching players of all ages and skill levels. During my time as a certified tennis instructor, I have served as a teaching pro for the Ft. Washington Pool and Tennis Association (MD), Washington Tennis Services International, City of Falls Church (VA), Maryland-National Capital Park and Planning Commission, and as an independent private instructor. Over the years, I have directed summer tennis camps and served as both a men’s and juniors’ team coach through the Greater Washington Tennis Association, National Junior Tennis League and First Serve Tennis Academy. Although I specialize in and especially enjoy teaching beginner and intermediate players of all ages, I can teach players at all skill levels, including those with spec
ial needs. I live in Alexandria, VA, but I conduct lessons throughout the Northern Virginia area.

Coach K is completely dedicated to fostering the love of soccer! His expertise is witnessed through the growth of athletes' skills and performance. He instantly sees an athlete's strengths and areas in need of support. He is always positive in his feedback and is clear with explanations and expectations. He discussed with my daughter and I her short-term and long-term goals. He assessed her skills and developed an individual plan to support her in reaching her goals. He's flexible with days/times and is very reasonable with his rate. We look forward to every session!

About Gigi
Hello and welcome. My name is Gigi. I have been teaching dance, dance fitness, and meditation for 30 years. I love the personal relationship with each student as together we bring forth skill, style, self confidence, expression, well being, and peace. My primary dance training was received from the Mid Hudson Ballet Company, with teaching certification from Music in Motion, Inc. My meditation training is rooted in 7 years of monastic life and 30 years of integrating the principles and practices into my being. I am a very compassionate, friendly, intuitive person who teaches with warmth, sensitivity, patience, and attention to detail. I look forward to bringing all of the above into sessions with you to help fulfill your personal goals and interests.

My relationship with dance began at the age of 3, when my mother enrolled me in my fir
st ballet class with the hope that it would help me gain the confidence to come out from my hiding place behind her back. Not only did it encourage me to overcome my excessively painful shyness, but it grew an everlasting love and shelter for me. I went on to receive the foundation of my training at Estelle & Alfonso Performing Arts and the Russian Ballet School of the Mid-Hudson Ballet Company. During my adolescent years, I became a teacher at the school and a performing member of the company. I also received the honor of performing in Harlequinade with the New York City Ballet, studying at the Craft of Choreography Conference on scholarship, and attending a variety of ballet, jazz, and modern dance classes by notable teachers in multiple schools and venues in the northeast.

In my adult years, I've enjoyed performing on many occasions, especially as a guest artist with Dog-Eared Dancers and in choreographic partnership with Anna Mayta of Anna Mayta Dance Fusion. I'm grateful to have expanded my modern dance and teaching experience with Laurie Sepe Marder, and to have studied Kuchipudi Classical Indian Dance with Kantham Chatlapalli, as well as ancient and modern Hula with Kumu June Tanoue. Under the mentorship of Barbara Thuesen, I received my certification in ballet teaching and choreography from Music in Motion, Inc. I was then accepted into the dance department at the West Australia Academy of Performing Arts, but chose to remain close to home and open White Lotus Ballet in 2004 instead.

Since then, I have had the ongoing pleasure of teaching dance to dozens of children and adults in my space, as well as at preschools, daycare centers, yoga studios, and special events. My teaching style and content continue to evolve with the gathering of insight, compassion, and experience.

In addition to traditional dance, that evolution has also expanded to include teaching meditation and healing dance. I am a very devotional soul and a natural intuitive empathic healer. So, i find all the gifts, talents, inspiration, and wisdom I receive come together in a variety of forms and ways I teach to touch the heart and desired interest of each student. Again, I look forward to creating lessons that fulfill you in that way.

I took dance lessons from Gigi with a focus on self expression and working through issues that I was holding onto on any particular day. I am 60+ years old and never danced before. Where my typical perspective of myself standing in front of a mirror is not positive, I somehow was transformed into seeing beauty. Gigi is a beautiful person, very patient , non judging. Her goal was for me to meet my goal, even when it changed from week to week. Sometimes we worked on dance technique, other times using movement to work through feelings. I loved it.

About Davina
I am a fitness professional, personal trainer and speed coach that has a passion for helping my community emphasize the importance of health and wellness. I graduated from the University of Houston with a Bachelors of Arts in Communication and a minor in Spanish, yo hablo espanol .

Proudly, I train people from all different age groups and fitness levels. All of my clients can expect to undergo an initial fitness evaluation in order for me to be able to gauge exactly where they currently are health and fitness wise. This allows me to not only get to know the client better but also get a great idea of their fitness goals for me to customize a personal fitness program.

I specialize in outdoor workouts after being a runner/sprinter for 10 years. I can train clients on basic weight management skills and how to become flexible, stronger, an
d have more power for speed and/or polymeric training. I can help clients recover from old or recent injuries and work with anyone that hasn’t been deemed permanent disabled.

I competed in the Junior Olympics twice in the 4x1m relay and the 100m dash. As a result I have been able to perfect my craft with some of track and field’s most amazing athletes such as Chauntae Bayne and Sanya Richards. Speed conditioning is one of my multiple specializations with the understanding that every client will have their own unique strengths and weakness in all categories of fitness training.

My love and passion for health and wellness allows me to share the importance of exercise with every client that trains with me. I truly enjoy the wide range of workouts that are ever so growing on a daily basis resulting in the different variations of fitness training I present to my clients. Whether it be in the gym, on the track or at the park I look forward to meeting with you, getting active and restoring your fitness journey!

About Meg
Hi there! My name is Meg and I want to help you gain confidence, get in shape, try something new, or even work on something you’ve been practicing for years! I’m here to help you reach your goals and have fun doing so!

I grew up in North Carolina and began ballet when I was three and theatre a few years later. I studied at the Raleigh City Ballet and did pre-professional programs with Carolina Ballet and the University of NC School of the Arts. My love for theatre kept me from pursuing professional ballet and I attended the University of Michigan and received my BFA in Musical Theatre from one of the top programs in the country.

Currently I am a teacher, actor, and professional dancer with 10 years of teaching and industry experience. I have a versatile background in numerous styles of dance, acting, fitness, modeling and theatre.
I fell in love with performing at a very young age and haven’t stopped since; one of my greatest passions is sharing that love with others!

I work with all ages and levels from toddlers to adults, beginners to experts! My lessons are challenging, creative, and lots of fun! I focus on encouraging creativity and recognizing small victories as we work towards bigger goals. Nothing brings me more joy than watching my students achieve exciting things and know I helped them get there. Whatever it is you want to accomplish, let’s make it happen!
