Private Dance Teacher

I’m available to teach private lessons for teens and adults interested in learning to do tap or ballet for the first time, or who want to improve their skills. My strengths are patience, enthusiasm, and an unusual way of approaching dance. I’m not famous or particularly interested in becoming famous, so if that’s your goal, I’m not the right teacher for you. I strongly believe everyone can dance, and should. All bodies can learn to dance and enjoy themselves. Dance should be joyful, about self-expression, and a way of learning about your body and your spirit. Finally, I believe it’s never too late to start learning something new, and your bucket list should not wait until you retire.

About Kristen

I started dance later in life -- tap at 19 and ballet at 31 -- because I was so tall and awkward as a child. It never occurred to me that people my size could be dancers. I fell in love with dance as an escape from a stressful job teaching high school history. I saw such changes in myself the more I

More than incredible first experience, no question I will return and invest more time with her. She is extremely warm, personable and really knows her stuff. So happy to have found her!
Miranda
Kristen is a human that makes her students feel immediately at ease. She is kind, quirky, and hilarious, but more importantly, she is patient and meets students where they are to ultimately fulfill their potential and their goals. I first started taking tap classes from Kristen a few years ago as a nervous adult (25 yo) seeking a bare bones beginner tap class. Since then, having incorporated exercises, games, and routines to awesome music, I have come leaps and bounds, built up my courage and confidence, and am proud to officially feel part of the tap community. If you’re looking for an excellent teacher, regardless of experience level, look no further!

You'll learn the foundation of Hip-hop movements then how to perform choreography and freestyle, so you can adapt the moves to any song. We'll learn a different piece of unique choreography every lesson while going through each element of the routine at your own pace.

Private Dance Teacher

The best part of teaching is when the student has that "Eureka!" moment: feeling the enjoyment of dancing, having confidence and control coupled with the ability to let go and create. I teach students to understand the foundations of movement, how to master the basics and connect into the complex. The how, the why and the what and how each dancer relates are imperative. I believe dance can be accessible to everyone. I believe my job is to help you fill your tool box.

About Allison

I have been teaching dance for over 20+years in the studio and on the stage. Teaching students the foundational skills necessary for a life filled with dance is my vocation. Assisting students to grow by building their skills, developing their artistry, and finding their voice through movement is p

Sandra Stuff
My story - From Romeo and Juliette the soft spoken advanced dancer to Albert and Chicago, a diva in the making where an actress was born. It took Albert to unveil the talents yet undiscovered to create a real Bratt! Chicago and the 2 men, a theatrical dance choreography by Albert mesmerized the audience. There were moves that I believed I would never do and have, and dressed up in a dress only my dreams would see. Had it not been for Albert I would have never challenged myself to do different style dances to my heart’ desire with no fear!
Amelia De Micco
Albert is a phenomenal teacher. I have taken many group lessons with him in Montreal where Argentine tango was taught. The precision of the dance moves and the care shown for every student was amazing. Also, the choreographies were one of a kind. In Argentine Tango there is one particular move where the lady lifts her body mid air to cross both legs while the man is assisting her in this move - Amelia’s move was the nickname - for a reason. For all the practice in the world, I couldn’t get this move if you paid me. Not only did Albert reinforce that ‘I WILL DO IT’, he gave me the technique, love and care to make me continue to persevere, For the students that had mastered the move, his care for all students allowed the group to cheer me on where Amelia’s move nickname was born. The men in our group assisted me greatly and the ladies gave pointers that worked for them. After all, we were one family. When the date of the showcase arrived, the formation was a great success! Not a glitch in sight from anyone of us, all smiles and for me the feeling of having climbed Mount Everest. I will always cherish the great teachings I received from Albert and the beautiful picture taken of this signature move. Not only Albert commands a room in a spectacular way, for his students dare to dream the impossible dream. For Albert nothing in ever impossible to achieve only possibilities not yet explored.
Estelle
It took me a while to work up the courage to enroll in dance classes without a partner. Albert made me feel comfortable and at ease right away. He is a very gifted teacher who has a way of breaking down the steps to make it easy and fun and yet he is very detail oriented and professional. He is always very encouraging and so much fun to be around.

"My 12 year old son thoroughly enjoys dancing with Ms. Ashley! He has taken her Musical Theater, Jumps and Turns, and Tap classes online. She has taken special effort to get to know my son and help him hone in on strengths, diagnose specific issues and improve those weaknesses. I have seen improvements in the quality of his movement and haven’t seen him dance this well before. As an added bonus, he comes away from each lesson knowing more about the history of each different type of dance along with a deeper understanding of the purpose behind each movement. Ms. Ashley has a special ability to make the dance “click” by providing a brain/body pathway connection that has helped my son learn many new things easily and quickly. Her choreography is so much fun and fresh and tailored to perfectly fit my son’s specific goals. Ms. Ashley brings so much energy and knowledge to each lesson! My son couldn’t be happier!"

"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!"
