Dance culture has a tendency to be exclusive. But why? Everyone can dance, and everyone can learn to dance - we just need to know how our bodies are meant to move and what they are capable of doing! Dance is an art form whose pedagogy is passed down from teacher to teacher. As studies of biomechanics and kinesiology evolve, so should the approach to teaching dance. We know that not every “body” looks, moves or is built the same. With new developments in science, we can now teach dance with a more biomechanically safe method that allows the art form to be more accessible to all bodies. Not only will this allow accessibility to all dancers but also provides longevity to dancers.

I offer lessons that are designed to be achievable by any and every body - from non-dancers, to advanced dancers. The lessons are taught through a biomechanical approach that allows for accommodations and safe execution for all bodies and structural limitations while still staying true to the aesthetic of the ...

Really great stuff !!

It was only a first lesson but I can already tell I'm going to be taking more lessons with Daniel. He's very knowledgeable, patient, and dedicated. He detailed a specific plan for me to work on that isn't too rigid or boring, I'm looking forward to relearning the flute with him.

Great 1st lesson! Looking forward to continuing and learning more

The best teacher ever!!! Super kind, engaging, patient! She adapts to any of your goals/teaching style! I love coming to class; I always leave with a smile no matter how I felt before :)

I started off doing hip hop with MissG, then we started doing more yoga and meditation which has been so fulfilling!

"I came to Jordan needing help with extreme deadlines. I was auditioning for a musical theater degree with a large number of colleges and while I had a good amount of experience singing and acting, I was practically new to dance. Online, she was able to help me prepare for audition pre-screens, learn dance basics rapidly, and feel less anxiety about dance auditions. As a result, I was able to receive many MT acceptances and get into my dream school. Thank you Jordan for being patient with me and helping me learn at my own pace while moving fast enough to meet my goals. You’re the best!"
