Dan has been a great teacher thus far. He is patient and finds material that I find interesting while keeping me engaged during the lesson. He has helped me with some vocal tips as well! I really am getting my money's worth taking lessons with him. I would recommend Dan to any aspiring musician in need of lessons!

Hanna M.

Chicago, IL

18 years dance experience in many disciplines, can teach all levels and many styles.

About Hanna

Hanna M is a recent graduate from Columbia College Chicago where she received her Bachelor of Arts degrees in Dance and Arts Management. Hanna has been a dancer since the young age of three and continues to train and perform throughout the Chicago dance community. Hanna took her first yoga class with her aunt when she was in high school and felt it was a great complement to her dance training. It wasn't until she took her first class at CorePower Yoga that she fell in love with Vinyasa yoga and discovered a moving meditation that awakened her to the journey of this practice. Hanna knew that she had to share this realization with others. Hanna received her 200-hour Power Vinyasa Yoga Certification from CorePower Yoga in the summer of 2014 and completed their Extensions program shortly ...

Darcy C.

Chicago, IL

I teach ballet, jazz, tap and hip hop at Kaleidoscope Dance Center in Evanston, and ballet and tap to adults at Glenwood Dance Studio in Rogers Park. I previously created the curricula and taught ballet at the Robert Crown Center in Evanston, and before that I taught at the Batavia Academy of Dance.

I have been dancing for 20 years and teaching dance for several. I love to teach beginners--whether age 2, 6, or 66. I also teach and choreograph for intermediate and advanced dancers.

I grew up training seriously in ballet, pointe, tap, jazz, modern, and lyrical primarily at the School of Performing Arts in Naperville, IL, where I danced with their performing and competing ensemble for seven years, and Ballet Legere in River Forest, IL, where I performed in the Nutcracker for five years.

About Darcy

Hi, there! My name is Darcy and I am a teaching artist in Chicago. I've been teaching and tutoring for eight years and I'm a graduate of Northwestern University. I love teaching because I love to get to know people and it is extremely rewarding to help others succeed at their goals. I pride myself in being personable and adaptable to different learning styles, and an upbeat, positive person. Not free during my listed times? Chances are, we can work something out. I teach a variety of ages, levels, and subjects: the through line is that I truly love teaching. I teach drama to kindergarteners and high school English classes, clarinet to middle school students, ballet to three-year-olds, and tap to adults older than I am. I often teach large groups but find it most rewarding to work ...

Darcy is a warm, thoughtful, patient teacher. She has a very calm demeanor and connected immediately with my 11 year old daughter. She gave each lesson 110% and I highly recommend her.
