Gina B.

New York, NY

Careful private work on shape and function of the body, part by part. Breaking down the language of the movement so you know what you are doing when and how to carefully develop the parts that are weakest by separating them from the mix of all the movement and then studying them minutely until the physical process makes sense to your mind and body.

About Gina

I'll be in Oakland, California beginning mid August and available in that area. I'm still available to my east coast students via Skype.

I graduated from Juilliard in dance and pursued modern dance and all sorts of theatre including musicals and music theatre and performing arts. I have taught children and grown ups for many years. I have a strong performing career and love the way teaching keeps me in a giving and learning place.

*** Lesson Details ***
With beginning students in acting I am very laid back and patient and believe strongly that in the play of games and experiments techn
ique will develop and manifest. As the student becomes more advanced I become more demanding as do the materials. As an acting teacher I have an advanced capacity to take students along all the way to professional and beyond. I am a member of the Actors Studio, the performing unions and studied since childhood at ACT and then all over the world including The National in London.
In Singing and Piano I can be valuable to the beginning level and will want to send them to another teacher as they progress beyond my ability.
In dance I have a wide knowledge and can teach several forms as well as history and materials. In Juilliard I specialized in historical dance of the French Court which is also known as pre-ballet. At present I am studying Tango and other ballroom forms and can teach the beginning levels as well as help choreograph for weddings or events. Of course I can also teach Ballet and a many forms of Modern Dance.
In Visual Arts I can teach Abstract Painting, Installation and Performance Art. I have taught children and adults and have a way of bringing the body's expression into the act of making visual art that I and my students find very successful.

*** Studio Equipment ***
I have supplies and space. Visual Art students need to contribute to materials by finding or purchasing whatever they like and adding to the mix. My students are welcome to use what I have here and I am always adding materials. Many people throw away materials that are perfectly good for art making so keep your eyes open and you'll find all kinds of good things. Visual Art students need to book a 2 hour minimum and I will lower the price if you just let me know you need it.

*** Travel Equipment ***
just a space to work in - we can create a work space out of any space.

*** Specialties ***
In dance I teach classical ballet principles for beginners or those who are returning and want to work carefully and privately. I teach from the tradition of Alfredo Corvino's principles of relationship to organic forms and structures for sound development. I studied with Mr Corvino for years and continue to study with Ernesta Corvino.
For acting I teach a combination of classical acting technique with American sense memory and relaxation skills. I am well versed in the teachings of Lee Strasberg and then spent time in London to 'fill in the cracks' of my training with analytical skills as well as the various european influences that the Royal National embrace.
I teach creative discovery in combination with classical devices so the student can discover their own artistry while learning actual classical devices for accomplishing specific goals.

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 me 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!

Beyond expectations

From our first phone call, Gina became invested in my dance journey. From modern dance, to ballet and contemporary, Gina has guided me into a new world of performance and dance. Outside of our scheduled lessons, we are loosely collaborating on a creative project - something I thought was years away until I met Gina. She taught me tactical dance fundamentals while also helping me navigate the dance and theater scene in NYC. (with which she is very connected) The best thing for me was her flexibility with the learning process. She encourages everyone to make their own journey, never forcing too much structure but always being reliable. I look forward to continuing this journey. Thank you!

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.

New York, NY

You can expect to experience unique lessons that will improve your technique tremendously, and also improve your connection to the heart and soul of artistic movement. You'll be reminded of why you love to dance,and you will also have fun while learning. My methodology is completely different, and it works.

About lisa

I will work day and night to help you achieve your dancing goals. My philosophy is this - " Anyone can dance, Anyone. " I am dedicated, creative, and believe that your lessons should be fun and enlightening. You'll be surprised by all that you can do.
Also my fees are reasonable because I believe financial situations shouldn't determine a person's ability to experience artistic pursuits. Besides, currently my " day job " feeds the bills, while teaching dance feeds my heart.

Lisa is absolutely amazing! My husband and I contacted her just over a week before our wedding, hoping that she could teach us a dance. Neither of us has any dancing background. In just a few days, Lisa choreographed and taught us a dance that wowed our families and friends. Not only is she a fantastic teacher, she is also a wonderful person. She is incredibly responsive and flexible and went above and beyond any of our expectations in making sure that we felt comfortable and prepared. She is kind, patient, thoughtful and brilliant. We can't recommend her enough!

Linnette R.

New York, NY

Teaching for seven years, but with 27 years of professional dance experience before that. Balanchine style, ballet technique, pointe & variations. Posture, carriage, proper muscle use in order to achieve certain lines or steps. Musicality and emphasis on timing or "playing" with the music.

Can help with setting up pointe shoes, ribbon/elastic placement, proper breaking in of shoes.

Dance fitness includes extra strength building techniques using Barre Method & Pilates style core building exercises.

About Linnette

I am a former Principal dancer with Pacific Northwest Ballet. I have taught for the last eight years - technique, pointe, and variations class to kids and teens, and run rehearsals for upcoming performances. A year ago, I went through training in one of the Barre Method classes and worked with adults in a more fitness related category for two months before moving to New York. I am a strong believer in health, wellness and good diet in order to stay in your peak condition for dance. As a dancer, I always had to work to keep more muscle on my body so I'm particularly concerned with not only
how to train for dance but to build strength as well to enhance performance and prevent injuries.
