This dance course is focused on movement for actors. You will learn very beginner movements inspired by yoga and modern dance techniques. We can use this as movement therapy as well. I want you to feel and love your bodies at the end of it. I am very good at coaching choreography or a dance you need help on.

I am so moved by movement! I've had the pleasure of being a professional dancer in both New York and Los Angeles. I've traveled the world on tour, performed live on television, and worked in TV and film, I love teaching, choreographing, and exploring movement with dancers and non-dancers alike. I've been able to work with actors and singers as a movement coach for TV and film and live performances, but some of my happiest experiences are teaching and creating dances for special occasions like father daughter dances at weddings or a surprise flash mob for birthdays.

My goal with each session is help the client feel empowered to move, express, or feel joyful. Classes can focus on dance technique in Jazz, Contemporary, Street Jazz, or Ballet. Classes can also focus on self exploration, creative expression, or story telling through movement! The goal is to get moving and feel great!

I am also a certified personal trainer and certified nutrition coach, which all help to aid our ...

I have taught and choreographed professionally for almost 8 years, and started dancing 21 years ago. I am passionate about teaching the technique to dancing, but also how to move their body with style. I have trained and worked with some of the top choreographers in LA and have a large amount of experience in the dance industry. I can teach jazz, technique, hip hop, jazz funk, lyrical, and contemporary.With a background in yoga, I ensure you are listening to your body to prevent injuries and having proper form. I love to help kids and adults build their confidence, brand themselves as dancers, and give them top training with the years of knowledge I have.

Your innate power is sleeping inside you. It's time to awaken to the movement that you are becoming and celebrate what it means to be a human being. Dance is essential and indefinable but can be approached, with the right methods and practice. I offer a vision of dance that is philosophical, and grows beyond simple rhythmic motion. I will challenge your brain, open your mind, and develop your sense of body awareness to a level where you are the master of your own physical creature. We will explore treasures and pitfalls, and broaden our vision to see and become so much more...

"My experience with Crystal has been amazing!! Crystal expertise in technical, ballet, liturgical, jazz, hip hop, and African dance is out of this world. Crystal took her time to show me (at the time a non dancer) all of those dances and now I am no longer a beginner!! Now Crystal has asked me to travel with her to several dance conferences. We have also done a few routines together! One of the venues was at the Phillips Arena!! AMAZING!"

"I was able to book incredible dance lessons with Ferlyn at the last minute for my friends who needed dance lessons for their wedding. Here is what they had to say:

"We had a little over a week before our wedding and needed to figure out our first dance. We went to Ferlyn for dance lessons. In 5 sessions we had our first dance down! She helped us build confidence in our dance. She is extremely professional and helpful. She allowed us to change up some moves and suggested new moves that would improve our style. We learned a lot of new techniques with great insight. Our first dance went really well and we definitely recommend her!" - Dang & Niki

I've received glowing reviews from them about that experience ever since, and they'll be cherishing that memory forever. I will continue to recommend Ferlyn for my other friends from now on! She won't let you down!"

"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!"

"Miss Ashley is a breath of fresh Dance Education/Instruction air. She's energetic, fun and timely. She gets to the point. My daughter is thoroughly taken with her dance education approach and minute movement dissection and correction. We are coming out of Saudi, where dance is shunned and every camp Dance instructor is a volunteer parent with time on their hands, and into refresher Tap lessons with Miss Ashley. It's like night and day, at the very least. LOL! THANK YOU for your help in filling in her egregious Tap gaps while we are on Covid Evacuation to the US. We look forward to exploring other genre lessons with you in time, where possible. Any student would be in excellent hands with you."
