I have been dancing for the past 10 years, self taught. My dance style is Krump/Pop. Excelling at "hitting" "isolation" "and "ticking". Very few classes under my belt, ballet for 2 months, swing and salsa classes here and there.
Not really looking to make a lot of money, I genuinely like dancing and love teaching and being taught.

About Derrall

My first vocal teacher and the best!

Ms. Rachel was an amazing vocal teacher! We would always start off with simple and fun warm-ups, breathing techniques, and would practice singing songs from musicals. My first couple lessons she taught me how to sing I Feel Pretty from West Side Story and we both had so much fun with it! After a little while we learned Cups from Pitch Perfect and then we got into the Vaccai book and I learned a couple songs from there. Overall Ms. Rachel was the best! She even offered to Skype a lesson with me since she moved. She cared about me and always helped me improve my voice in every way she could. I love her!

To whom it my concern



An appreciation of Avetik, the Teacher



I have had the good fortune to watch Avetik in international ballet competitions in which he has consistently won medals, so anyone looking for a coach could not find a more experienced and competition wise individual.



Anyone who has watched his Avetik's Workout cannot have any doubts that he has a knowledge and control of the human body which is unmatched by any dancer I have seen. I base my opinion on 80 years in the profession of classical ballet.


In my professional opinion he has the most secure and strong classical technique unparalled by any dancer, anywhere today. This as a result of the training which he received some the greatest male teacher of his time.


He understood then, and maintains now, that great tradition in his teaching. It would be hard, if not impossible, to find better training anywhere now.

He also will has the very rare qualities that make a great teacher. Without patience, understanding and gentleness combined with discipline, no teacher can expect to get results.

Anyone who has the chance to study with him must consider themselves the most fortunate student.

"Nicolas is one of the best mentor I have ever came across. He is passionate about teaching and able to help you draw out the inner you. I was someone who had a great deal of struggle connecting with my emotions and being able to express it in a sensible way. Within few weeks he taught me how to tap into my feelings and express it outwards. Needless to say he is an impressive teacher and if you have the chance, visit him. It will be beneficial for your personal life and career."

She is very passionate about the craft and is a genuine person. She knows how to work with each actors' strengths to bring out their best performances. She works with you on getting of rid of habits that hinder your true potential. I am so blessed to have worked with her. I auditioned for the USC program after coaching with her and I feel confident about my chances. I highly recommend her."

Top 5 Wildest Method Acting Techniques in Hollywood History

If you've ever watched an actor disappear into their role, shedding genuine tears or adopting mannerisms that aren't their own, then you've seen method acting techniques in action. Most people think of this approach as "becoming a character," and some actors do take that literally, pretending to actually be the person they're playing.  Method acting is taught everywhere from Hollywood to Broadway. But a few notable actors are well-known for taking it to award-winning extremes, making enormous …
