I've been teaching ballet for over twenty years. My ballet teacher was a Bolshi alumnai. He and his dad both danced for the Bolshi before they came to America. I teach a combination of Vaganova and my own updated style to keep my students interested in the style. I use classical music and pop to help students gain a love and appreciation for the style.

About Kay
I have been teaching Piano for 16 years now. I have taught students from age 2 1/2 - Adult. I was self-taught when I was a kid and begun taking formal lessons as a very young adult in my early twenties. I graduated from CSULB with my BA in Music with a concentration on Voice. As a Music major you spend a lot of time at the Piano. I became a member of MTAC in 2004 and a member of Sigma Alpha Iota in 1998. I have a great passion for Music and a bigger passion for the Piano and sharing the wonders of how beautiful the Piano really is.

*** Lesson Details ***
In my opinion, piano is the hardest instrument to learn but the most rewarding. If you can play piano you can pretty much play any instrument. I believe that a piano lesson should be fun. I'm a strict teacher with a smile and a giggle. I push my students to greatness while helping the
m love the piano through the good times and the bad. I'm a very encouraging but honest teacher. I compliment when warranted and I assess not so good performances in an honest but encouraging manner. I always let a student know that though their performance was not their best, they can and will improve. It's always only a matter of time. I use the Schaum and Nevin series depending on the student's personality. I teach Classical and Pop Music. It's important for a student to learn the Classics just as important as it is for them to play things they like. I find the happy balance between the two. I teach Beginning to Intermediate levels. I also like to incorporate Music theory into the lessons because understanding the mechanics of Music helps make playing and creating Music much easier to accomplish. A typical lesson will start off with a hand drill warm up. We then will move on to the lesson book and repertoire. Theory will be assigned as homework. I look it over at the beginning of the lesson and discuss it and answer any questions in the last five minutes of class. Baby lessons go as followed: 15 mins. of play time and 15 mins of Music theory. I like to keep structure in my lessons but sprinkle a little joy and laughter to keep the atmosphere light. It makes for a much more attentive Piano student.

*** Travel Equipment ***
I expect the student to have a Piano or Keyboard of some sort. I may provide music on occasion.

*** Specialties ***
Classic and Pop

About Briana S.

Washington, DC

View Full Profile

My class focuses on the use and understanding of movement execution as well as ballet vocabulary. The class will start with a ballet barre, then move to center work, and across the floor. Younger students will be taught with the effective use of imagery for movement and older students will focus on the anatomy of the body. Students will be expected to bring a journal to each lesson to note vocabulary and movement combinations and review outside of lessons.

About Briana
Briana has enjoyed teaching since she was a teaching assistant at Detroit Windsor Dance Academy, her high school dance studio. Since then she has taught students within Washington DC Public Schools, the University of Michigan Recreation Center, the Capitol Hill Arts Workshop, Morton Street Dance Center, District Dance Arts, as well as many other studios and non-profit organizations. Teaching allows her to express herself, pass on her knowledge and experiences and inspire students to develop their technique, creativity, individuality and showmanship.

There is never a dull moment in Briana’s classes! Her specific classes and lesson plans are catered to specific age groups from Pre-K to adults. They consist of engaging movement activities, warm-up, and complex movement combinations. She is an energetic and patient teacher who seriously
takes into account the needs and skill level of the student in preparing her lesson plans and material.

Briana’s use of dance vocabulary and physical demonstrations allow her to teach the material accurately and effectively. Her positive attitude and constant words of encouragement keep students motivated and engaged in the lesson. Students will increase their knowledge and physical vocabulary of the movement style and leave each lesson a better dancer, performer and person.

She received her Bachelor’s of Fine Arts in Dance and Bachelors of Arts in Sociology from the University of Michigan in May of 2013 and has had a wide range of professional experience. She has worked with and performed works by modern dance choreographers such as Lindsey Merchant, Melissa Beck, Germaul Barnes, Jessica Fogel, Christopher Huggins, Shen Wei and Dianne McIntyre. She was artistic director of a chapter of the international hip-hop dance company Dance2XS International.

Briana was a full-time company member with StepAfrika!, a professional stepping company in Washington, DC from 2013-2015 and currently, she is working with CityDance resident artist S.J. Ewing & Dancers. Briana has had the privilege of performing at DC's City Rhythms Festival, Catholic Universities Hartke Theater, the Hill Center, the VelocityDC Festival, the Guantanomo Bay Naval Base as well as others. Recently she was invited to perform a modern dance solo in Dance Place’s 2014 New Releases Choreographers Showcase and Joy of Motions 2014 Dance Project Concert. Most recently, she served as the assistant choreographer on the American Theater’s Company’s production of The Project(s) in Chicago, IL, rated 4 stars by the Chicago Tribune. Most recently, she collaborated with Hard Soles Dance Company on a new piece titled “Re:set”, combining contemporary dance and body percussion, for the 2016 March on Washington Film Festival in honor of the 70th anniversary of the integration of the NFL and was chosen as Dance Place's 2016 New Releases Commission Recipient in support her new work to be premiered the summer of 2017.

Briana encourages students to bring writing materials to each lesson to take notes for any learned vocabulary and each lesson will follow with a recorded video of the movement for the students to refer to until the next lesson.

I'm extremely new to ballet and dance in general (for reference I'm 16). Briana was very patient and an amazing teacher! Very friendly and welcoming while still being very professional. It's great to get the exact corrections I need without feeling bad about it and yet still work on it until proper. Very happy and pleased!

I am already worried that if I tell people how amazing Briana is that she will get too booked up for me :) She is a great instructor with a huge heart. Loved it.

My goals are to work on their coordination and flexibility along with proper ballet technique. All classes will be tailored to each student accordingly.

About Lindsay
Hey there! My name is Lindsay. I truly enjoy teaching everything in the realm of physical activity. I grew up dancing at Mark Spivaks Institute in Jacksonville, Florida. I studied under a Russian Prima ballerina. I played soccer. I swam. My lifestyle at a young age has reflected in my work as an adult. Nowadays I love yoga, hiking, running, art, and being a big sister! If I have one goal in my professional life it would be to inspire active living in today's youth. I completed my 450 hour pilates certification which compliments my teachings in every field due to the anatomical approach. Currently I work as a dance teacher, pilates instructor, yoga teacher and flexibility coach. My passion for movement will inspire you to achieve your goals. I love to make any positive difference to a client: in their day, in their body, in their out
look. I look forward to meeting you and reaching the finish line- whatever that may be!

I am enthusiastic about teaching online lessons as well. I find that online training works amazingly well, and is extremely convenient for people with busy schedules.

For Dance - Lindsay teaches ballet, social club, and basic hip hop and tap

If you're looking for training in the DANCE world (ballet, jazz, tap, hip hop, contemporary, theatre) or the VOCAL world (musical theatre, classical, pop/rock, or jazz) -- I'm the girl for you. I am a spitfire, and a smart coach who simply loves to teach. Let's have some serious fun together, shall we?

For beginners, to learn the basics of ballet technique, how to take a class, warming up and conditioning/stretching you can do to improve.

Intermediate and advance students should expect a a 45 min to hour private lesson to improve their weaknesses, and be given individual exercises to help them be the best they can be.

About Haley
I currently am a professional dancer with the Georgia Ballet.

I've had most of my ballet training in Austin,TX under the Royal Academy of Dance, Vaganova, and Bournonville styles. I've attended numerous summer intensives including Houston Ballet, Boston Ballet, Ballet Austin and Joffery Ballet Chicago to name a few. During my school years I also had training in jazz, tap and musical theater. After high school I spent a year at University of North Carolina School of the Arts with a concentration in ballet along with contemporary, partnering, and choreography.

I've taught tap and jazz classes in Austin, Tx and would love to start teaching those again in Atlanta! I can create a solo for a competition, YAGP, or just learn choreography for fun. :)

I've been dancing since I was about 5 years old and it has brought me much joy and m
y passion has led me to dance with The Georgia Ballet for 3 years now!

As a professional dancer and teacher of ballet, yoga, and the Gyrotonic and Gyrokinesis methods, I have a deep knowledge of the physical and expressive potential of the human body.

As a teacher, I work in a way that is focused yet easygoing, approaching each individual student's capability in a healthy way. I have taught students ranging in age from 7 to 75, and love teaching any age.

My ballet classes begin with the foundations of classical ballet, with a focus on the details of technique that allow a student to quickly progress in strength, flexibility, and continue to progress to higher levels and possibilities of movement. As a dancer and teacher, I have found that this strong technical foundation is what allows dancers to find the most freedom and expression as artists.

My other movement classes (yoga, stretch, conditioning, Gyrokinesis) always work in the healthiest way for the body, respecting the student's needs and capabilities each day. We begin with an easy ...

About Rebecca
Hi! I'm Rebecca, a professional ballet and contemporary ballet based in New York. I studied ballet and contemporary dance at the North Carolina School of the Arts and Alonzo King's LINES Ballet. I've danced with Nevada Ballet Theatre, Terra Firma Dance Theatre, Azoth Dance Theatre, Ballet Inc, among other companies and projects in New York. Dance is my life and my passion, and I love to share it with others, on the stage and in the studio. I have been teaching ballet for 5 years, and am currently working with students at Premiere Division, an elite professional training program for ballet dancers.

I learned early on in my career the importance of working in a healthy way that kept me from injury and supported my artistry, one that included cross-training. This led me to yoga and Gyrotonic/Gyrokinesis. I was certified to teach As
htanga Vinyasa yoga in 2008, and then in Gyrotonic in 2011. These modalities have been a source of strength, flexibility, and focus in my body and mind. They've changed my dancing and my life!

Always the curious learner, I also went to Columbia University while dancing in New York, studying part-time while performing. I graduated summa cum laude and Phi Beta Kappa with a degree in Anthropology in 2016.

I truly love teaching, and hope to get to share the joy of movement with you!

Rebecca is a great instructor! She and I have worked together for many years, and have shared students with each other. I always trust her to take over my ballet classes if I need a sub. She is incredibly attentive, great with technique, and a wonderfully thoughtful person! I’d be happy to recommend her strongly as a teacher.
