My daughter has been taking voice lessons with Alexa and we have been very happy, as she has improved a lot. I was only able to select one area under “subject” above so I selected “singing”; she works on several areas such as performance, has helped my daughter with audition preparation, fundamentals that she needs for her school chorale program, etc. Alexis is talented herself, very personable, easy to work with, and flexible. My daughter’s previous teacher left her (moved) with no warning and we found Alexis. It turned out to be a blessing as she is wonderful!!

About Erik
Pianist, music director, and vocal coach, Erik was born and raised in Eastern Washington state. He has been heard all across the northwest and beyond, in cities including Seattle, Portland, Tacoma, NYC, Los Angeles, San Francisco, and Houston, and internationally in Prague and Salzburg. Erik has been a guest artist at Whitman College, Portland State University, The Kairos Chamber Music Lyceum, California State University Summer Arts, the West Seattle Symphony, and the Gig-Harbor Peninsula Symphony Orchestra. In addition to performing, Erik’s passion for teaching has led him to be an adjudicator for various festivals including the Washington Sonata-Sonatina Festival and the Washington Regional Solo and Ensemble Festival.

Erik is currently the Music Director for the National Tour of Kander and Ebb's timeless musical Cabaret. This produc
tion will be on tour until May 21st all across North America. Broadway.com's review of the opening night in Nashville praised the musicianship of the show, "Musical director Erik Flaten's musicians are impressive in their dexterity: At one moment, they are providing rich interpretations of the memorable John Kander score, while perhaps at the next they are playing denizens of the Kit Kat Klub or neighborhood thugs, wastrels and other folks of questionable repute. Flaten and his band are given their own richly deserved moments in the spotlight at the top of Act Two and the music director himself is given the well-earned final bow at the end of the curtain call.

Newly relocating to the East Coast, Erik is highly sought after for his collaborative work with both instrumentalists and vocalists. He is comfortable in all musical styles and genres, and has an extensive knowledge of music history and theory.

Students of Erik have the opportunities to perform in studio recitals and workshops.

About Brian "Bizzy"
Brian “Bizzy”, an altruistic and empowered professional in the entertainment industry, started dancing in his adolescence. During Bizzy’s transition to becoming a professional dancer, he had the opportunity to work with Freedom Theatre (located in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania) for various productions. Subsequent to networking with many managers and directors in the business, Bizzy landed his first series of opportunities to choreograph many shows and projects throughout the Philadelphia region.

In 2007, Bizzy decided that it was time to relocate to Atlanta, Georgia so that he could further his studies in dance. He also received a few teaching positions (Dance 411 Studios and Gotta Dance Atlanta), which helped him solidify his niche and market his brand as a dancer/choreographer.

A year later (2008), Bizzy decided to relocate to Los An
geles, California where he could focus on breaking into the industry. Moments later, he received a few opportunities to teach at some of the most sought after dance facilities in Hollywood (Debbie Reynolds Dance Studio and Debbie Allen Dance Academy). His craft has lead him to work with brands such as Verizon, Chanel, along with the likes of Wyclef Jean, Jill Scott, Will.I.AM, Alicia Keys, LeAnn Rimes, Raheem Davaughn, Ludacris, Jazmine Sullivan, Flo-Rida, Keke Palmer, Leona Lewis, Young Jeezy, Soulja Boy, Enrique Iglesias, Beyonce, and many more.

I have taken classes with Celestina for close to two years. After every single class, I leave feeling amazing about myself. You feel her passion and enthusiasm for the dance thru her music selection and combination arrangements.

Celestina’s classes are organized and fun. Not only is she a beautiful belly dancer, she is excellent teacher as well. She covers the rhythms of Arabic music and the steps that go with them. Celestina’s talent is choreography. She teaches choreographic segments that challenge the body and the brain. She has this incredible ability to break them down both verbally and visually.

As a beginner, you will move muscles you have never moved before; moving your core and hips in ways they never move in our western society. Aspiring to perform? Celestina’s attention to detail, not just technique; but nuances, expressions, posture will move you closer to your goal.

I have belly danced professionally, for fun and for myself for many years. It has done wonders for my confidence, femininity and life.
