Michael helped my wife and I get ready for our first dance for our wedding. Without him we wouldn't have been able to pull it off. He helped us learn so much in an extremely quick time schedule (about a month before the big day). Everything was easy going and fun. All of us joked a lot which made both my wife and I a lot less nervous. At the same time everything was extremely professional. He always helped us choose the best ways to do all the moves and showed us extra stuff to add if we felt we could do them on the day of. Michael, from the little time we knew him, is kind, sincere, and downright awesome. We can't thank him enough for how much he helped us.

Meet your dance instructor. I have my bachelors degree from Chapman University in Theatre & Dance. My training includes Ballet, Tap, Jazz, Modern, Folk Dance, Dance History, Hip-Hop, Musical Theatre, Improv, and Kinesiology, among other dance-related subjects.
I grew up in a small Illinois town. Lessons were few and far between, so I would copy dancing off of movies and videos in order to perform at local dances, or for other community events. As a youth, I took country line dancing classes. Always drawn to anything involving dance and movement, I auditioned and performed with a Disney Showcase Troupe. By high school, I was choreographing for the Show Choir, as well as, performing in theatrical productions, including the musical “The Wizard of Oz”.
Before graduating with my Bachelor’s degree in Theatre & Danc
e from Chapman University in Orange, California, I continued my study of many dance styles & techniques such as: Ballet, Tap, Jazz, Modern, Hip Hop, Ballroom, Dunham Technique, yoga/stretch, Dance Business & History. From 1996-2001 I performed a variety of dancing and singing roles in showcases and events such as “American Celebration” and “The Story of Rock n’ Roll”. While studying at Chapman, I accepted a position as historian, and eventually, vice president of the performing arts society (PASC).
When I wasn’t onstage, I could be found backstage working lights, sound, costuming, or stage management. I searched out other educational opportunities at Cypress College and the Taggart International School where I studied West African dance and Russian Ballet Technique. After performing a liturgical dance performance for my graduation ceremony, I toured the United States and a portion of Canada, researching dance around the world. This eventually led me to Jacmel, Haiti, where I studied cultural and social dances of the local people. After that I took up Bellydance and studied folk dancing in Chicago, Illinois.
Since 2001, I have taught classes for all ages from infants to adults. I have also studied child development and have a special love for bringing an adoration of the arts to the youngest artists in our communities. It is imperative that all my teachings highlight body positivity and the belief that everyone can dance. A life-long learner and dance aficionado, I continue my dance studies in Ballroom, Baroque Dance, and Scottish Country Dance. My influences include Isadora Duncan, Katherine Dunham, Sean Greene & Misty Copeland. I love being a part of the DA Dance Family.

It was a real pleasure to do a Month long bachata classes with Kimmy. It was a worthwhile time investment. Kimmy is very passionate about dancing and teaching. I am grateful for the new dance skills and confidence she helped me gain!
December 2, 2018
I'm not naturally coordinated in dancing much less for paired dancing, for that reason I was apprehensive and anxious about bachata dance lessons with kimmy. At the end of the first lesson I left feeling having learnt new moves and confident about using them. Kimmy is skilled and knowledgeable about teaching dance because the pace is not rushed, she provides appropriate cues and thoughtful commendations!
December 1, 2018
I highly recommend Kimmy! She is a great teacher; she was patient, understanding, and comes prepared. I completed my first dance sessions with Kimmy and came out with a better understanding of how to dance. She instills confidence with her teaching and cares that her student gets the most out of every class.

Hi! I'm from Chandler, Arizona but right now I'm living in Tucson as I go to school at University of Arizona to earn a Bachelor's degree in Early Childhood Education. I love teaching not only academics but dance as well! I have been a dancer for 10 years and started off probably where you are right now. I began in recreational jazz classes at Club Dance Studio in Mesa, Arizona. I went on to join their performance and pom team and eventually their competitive, nationwide known company. I've taken classes in all forms of dance including hip hop, acro/tumbling, musical theatre and ballroom but my favorite styles to dance and teach are contemporary, lyrical and jazz. I specialize in teaching foundational technique to beginning or young dancers who are just starting their dance career. My contemporary and lyrical classes are supported by fu
ndamental ballet technique. I also teach basic jazz technique classes. If you take a class with me, you can expect a lot of conditioning and technique in order to strengthen your knowledge, flexibility, and strength as a dancer. I am open to doing choreography as well or combo class by request. I can also help with technique and turns or acrobatics. Dance has always been a passion of mine. The dance studio is always where I felt the most comfortable. You can expect that in a lesson from me as well. I think it is most important to enjoy dance without the worry of competitiveness or perfection. Dance is an art and everyone expresses themselves differently. I look forward to meeting you and helping you with your dance technique!

Eugene is a fantastic instructor! He is highly knowledgeable and skilled when teaching different styles of dance . He takes the time to learn what your hopes and goals are for dancing and then pushes you to be better than you imagined you could be.

Eugene is a shockingly talented ballroom dancer. He is a strong leader and is capable of teaching lessons with an easy, yet highly informative approach. His knowledge of ballroom technique and etiquette is extensive, but most importantly he makes it enjoyable. He is one of the best teachers I have ever had. I enjoyed dancing with him and I enjoyed learning from him. He is a valuable asset to any student, novice or expert!
October 4, 2019
Worked with Eugene several times both alone and with a partner. Standard Foxtrot, Rhythm Chacha, East Coast Swing, and Smooth Viennese Waltz, covering both technique and choreography. I am looking forward to future lessons in any dance. He is meticulous and fun! I compete Gold Bar.
"Stephen has been giving our teenager daughter weekly lessons in "J-pop" dancing. Even though his background does not include this particular style, he has
done a great job of staying ahead of our daughter, and-even more importantly-encouraging and motivating her to keep at it. (Since dancing is one of the few exercises she will do willingly, this is key!) She looks forward to the weekly lesson and so do we."
"Best instructor ever! We had so much fun, were not intimidated she made us feel comfortable and no question was off limits. We’re so excited for next less
"Just finished our wedding dance lessons. I can't believe how quick we learned the dance. Nadia is an amazing instructor."
"One of my best private’s ever, Tom is so loving, detailed & super fine leader instructor & beautiful soul❤️looking forward to more private’s with him"
"Melanie has been giving Dance (Technique) Classes to my daughter for the past year. My daughter joined a Dance Company and I was referred to her by one of
the other dance mothers because my daughter needed to work on her technique and it made a huge difference! My daughter was able to hold her leg tricks and do more turns! With Melanie's guidance and great knowledge on Dance and the body, her technique got better and she also stayed injury safe."
"Gina is amazingly dedicated, both to the material she teaches and to her students. She's knowledgeable and encouraging. I engaged her to teach ballet to m
e and a friend who was trying to use dance to work through some body issues. Gina navigated a tricky situation - two students at different levels, one with psychological barriers - beautifully, and we both learned loads. Definitely get her to teach you things!"
"Ra, is not only very patient with her students, but is also interested in making sure your goals are being met. Before we got together for rehearsal she a
sked me what I wanted to accomplish so we could structure the class around that. She has a great sense of humor so she will make you feel comfortable when taking her class!"
"Very well pleased."
"Crystal is a great instructor. She is very knowledgeable and knows how to convey that knowledge. She is very patient with me and is passionate about what
she does. Looks like i’ve chosen the right instructor!"
