Ellen has taught Jazz for my 11-year-old daughter, who says, "She pushed me hard and I've become a better dancer."

Ellen was wonderful to work with! She really made the attendees for our virtual conference comfortable enough to be on camera. Our attendees had a blast and the class was a wonderful way to unwind and have fun after a long day of zoom meetings. I would highly recommend working with Ellen.

When I purchased a series of lessons for my partner and me, I really didn't know what to expect, beyond the forced focus on steps and postures drilled into me as a boy in cotillion. What we experienced was an accomplished professional, who helped us understand what dancing and moving together really means. Ellen is a giving, forgiving, funny, and intuitive teacher. We opened each lesson with exercises to simply bring ourselves into our bodies. Ellen taught us about beat and provided us choreography to practice, but more she helped us to realize that dancing together and responding to each other's movements and energy allows us to enjoy and even look good on the dance floor. Ellen gave us an awareness as much as a structure. We looked forward to every lesson and will return to her as we evolve. She is a master of what she does and knows and is generous and joyous in sharing.

She’s really awesome and friendly. My kids definitely were so excited and happy for how she taught them and her enthusiasm to teach new skills. She was right on time to the appointment and Mary takes her role seriously in terms of COVID protection. Looking forward to continuous lessons :)
Sophia A.
I really enjoy the Dance Fitness Sessions we do together and no wonder Mary's talent in music and rhythm synchronization gave an extra point to the whole experience. Even if my day is hard and I do the extra mile to keep up with my sessions I'm always rewarded in the end with great mood and feeling pumped. I highly recommend Mary to keep you fit and enjoy yourself at the same time.

A professional dancer myself, I strive to bring my experience and expertise into each lesson. We will begin with classic Barre work, followed by floor work and some choreography. Each lesson is crafted specifically with the student's unique goals in mind. I believe the best learning environment is a positive and supportive one, and I strive to truly help my students understand dance technique, while having a good time.

45 min or longer recommended, but express 30 min class also available.

Well organized yoga and conditioning lessons. Very patient with new students and strives to bring out the best from them.

Would not hesitate to recommend Emily.

Emily's background in musical theater is perfect for teaching our 10-year-old daughter! We signed her up for jazz to help her with choreography. We love that Emily teaches routines with Broadway music. She has also been very responsive by email, and Emily tailored our lessons to best fit our daughter.

Emily is a wonderful yoga teacher and I look forward to every class! She is motivating, kind, patient and fun!

"This was my first online lesson with Lindsay. I am a 64 year old woman who wants to learn ballet and in doing so become more flexible, agile and have better balance. Lindsay was very knowledgable, patient, and friendly. I felt that I was receiving real instruction and that we will make a good team together. Even though this was via FaceTime, I truly felt I had a one to one learning experience. Thank you, Linsday!"
