About Stephen

A native of New York City, my studies in dance include Jazz , Hip Hop, ballet, modern dance, and movement for theater. I have studied dance since the age of 10 at various schools and studios including Choir Academy of Harlem, The College of Staten Island as well as Barry University, and frequents Dance New Amsterdam (DNA studios) and Broadway Dance Center. I currently dance professionally with a Mixed Bag and Co. in NYC and have directed and choreographed award winning dance concerts for Art In Motion Productions in Miami.

I have been teaching dance as a choreographer for over 3 years.
The focus is on precision and performance. I specialize in technique and pedagogy for all levels of dance as well as movement, staging, and stage presence for dance theater performances. I embrace raw talent and new comers with as much respect as advanced level dancers. It's all about passion, talent, and commitment.

Alida was fantastic! She made me feel completely comfortable and took everything step by step. She focused on strengthening my weaknesses by showing me new stretches and techniques every lesson. Alida truly is an amazing teacher. Even though I've only worked with her for five days, Alida has made my technique and main focus. It was the best and I plan (and hope) to work with her again and again!

Alida is one of the best, most caring dance teachers I've ever had. In just a few short lessons she taught me to really believe in myself, boosted my confidence and taught me technique and important combinations for important upcoming auditions. She is very patient and really catered to my needs. She doesn't ever waste any time and I always leave a lesson feeling good and really feeling like I'm getting my moneys worth. Very thankful I found her and would recommend anyone take lessons with her.

I rate her tops.

Alida is a very good teacher. Never once did she come late. She has great manners and great teaching techniques. She breaks down steps n make them easier to learn so I do not get frustrated and bored. Since I'm someone who never danced jazz before she was exactly what I needed. she quickly grasped what I could or could not do n was most patient. I rate her tops.

Charly W.

New York, NY

I have taught group, as well as private ballet classes to students ranging from 6-18 years old, as well as to beginner-intermediate level adult students. My focus is on proper alignment, strengthening of the particular muscles required to be able to execute classical ballet repertory, as well as on fluidity of movement and artistic expression. While Ballet is a highly stylized and physically demanding dance technique, I encourage my students to express themselves from a place of joy and love for the art form.

About Charly

I'm a professional dancer and I have trained in a variety of dance techniques since the age of six. Throughout my dance career I have become aware of the importance of cross-training for optimal conditioning of the body for the purpose of injury prevention.

I'm a certified Pilates instructor and I have more than seven years of experience as a Private Fitness Consultant, customizing my workout to the specific needs, goals and abilities of each individual client.
I created Pilates Fitness Fusion, which integrates elements from my years of dance, as well as from Yoga, Zena Rommett’s Floor Bar
re, Feldenkrais, Pilates and Gyrokinesis. I also draw from the fluid forms of Qi Gong, Tai Chi and Alexander Technique. The result is an incredibly diverse and specialized fitness program.

Pilates Fitness Fusion will help you to strengthen and sculpt your whole body, shed excess weight and address postural imbalances, so that you can be
FIT, HEALTHY and PAIN FREE!

*** Lesson Details ***
In order to improve each student’s overall conditioning, an equal focus is put on upper and lower body strength, flexibility, body alignment and balance.
My private sessions, as well as my group classes include key exercises of Pilates, Yoga and other strengthening and stretching techniques, which allows for a well-rounded and diverse training program.

*** Travel Equipment ***
Thera Bands, Exercise Ball, Pilates Ring, Pilates Mat

Charly is the best!

After giving birth to two children, it is not easy to get back in shape and I honestly think, that it would have not been possible if it weren't for Charly.

She is very sensitive to the health issues one faces and knows exactly what to do and what not to do. At the same time she gently pushes you enough to actually make the big difference. I am now back to the way I was before having the kids - just that now I am even little stronger.

But it is not just the strength and shape of your body, but Charly will also help you adjust for any imbalances in your body.

I was very sad when I moved from Brooklyn and was not able to take her class anymore, but I am still doing a lot from our routine, that helps me stay fit.

She is wonderful!

I started Pilates with Charly about half a year ago. Charly is a patient teacher and explains in detail how to perform each movement. I have learnt so much about proper body alignment and how to execute each exercise with proper form. Charly’s attention to detail makes all the difference! I feel extremely confident training with Charly and have recommended her to my friends and family.

Elizabeth S.

New York, NY

I teach beginner to pre-professional ballet with an emphasis on musicality and freedom of movement through space. Most of my class will be structured, practicing the principals and details of ballet. I emphasize freedom of movement and love for dance. Very willing and able to tailor class to the individual student's needs.

About Elizabeth

I am a professional ballet dancer, currently performing with New York Theatre Ballet in New York City. I have been teaching ballet for over 8 years, and I have experience teaching all ages and levels.

I am an ABT Certified Teacher, and have successfully completed the ABT Teacher Training Intensive in Pre-Primary through Level 3 of the ABT National Training Curriculum.

My method is to treat each student as an individual, catering to their unique learning style, and progressing them to reach specific goals, which we define together. Formally, I was trained in the Balanchine style, but cur
rently I work in versatile methods and styles. My class is physically and aesthetically balanced. I teach absolute beginner through advanced ballet, as well pointe and variations.

I hold a BFA in Dance from NYU Tisch School of the Arts, as well as a BA in French Literature and Culture from NYU College of Arts and Science. In addition to teaching private and group ballet lessons, currently I am a dancer with New York Theatre Ballet, and Cherylyn Lavagnino Dance. In addition to performing, I am on the faculty at the Ballet School of Stamford.

This past spring, I performed with American Ballet Theatre in Alexei Ratmansky's world premiere production of The Sleeping Beauty at the Metropolitan Opera House at Lincoln Center. I also had the opportunity to dance with Armitage Gone! Dance in the world premiere of "On the Nature of Things," a contemporary ballet performed at the American Museum of Natural History. Prior to moving to New York I was an apprentice dancer with Richmond Ballet and North Carolina Dance Theatre.

Eliza is an absolutely amazing ballet teacher! I've worked with her for the past several months and have gone from the most basic of beginners (no previous dance experience at all!) to being able to leap and chasse and feel like a ballerina! She is extremely knowledgeable and patient, and has a great way of communicating techniques and concepts. Her lessons are fun and challenging, a great mix of reinforcing technique and learning new skills. The studio space is fabulous too - very comfortable and lots of room. Highly recommend her for any type of ballet lessons!

Ballet classes with Elizabeth are both fun and challenging.

The way she explains things are great. I have learned several new things about ballet and my own foundation by only a few lessons.

I highly recommend her private ballet classes.

Eliza is a wonderful, knowledgeable, and patient ballet teacher. She has taught company class for my professional ballet company, and was well received by the other dancers. Her classes are technical and she adapts to the level of dancers in the studio. I would highly recommend Eliza for a ballet teacher in a private or group setting.
