Great. Very personable and easy to relax with. Great exercises and homework I feel is doable as my first ever vocal lesson. Can't wait for my next session :)

My 5 year old daughter has become a stronger dancer with Ms. Kelly as she builds up for her recital. We are truly lucky to find such a dedicated and talented teacher.
Tracey
I was very lucky to have found Kelly. I had always dreamed of having artistic talent but I am not a naturally good singer. Within two years, I have gone from singing in the shower to having developed to stage performance. Kelly has taught me so much from the artistic expression of singing to the mechanics of turning my voice into an instrument. She has an incredible ability to listen to my voice and pinpoint the exact adjustment I need to make it sound great. She's such a fun person to be around that I always look forward to my next lesson. Her positive attitude and approach is also a testament to her high level of professionalism. She provides feedback that is positive. but also helps me improve She is the perfect combination of teacher and coach and I would highly recommend her for anyone interested in singing.

I am a certified personal trainer and a registered dietitian. I specialize in strength training, cardio and core conditioning, and flexibility training. I can also assist clients with nutrition, if desired, but this can be built into the workout sessions. I do not make meal plans, but can discuss with clients their estimated nutrient needs and help guide them on what foods to choose. I am not a yoga instructor, but I incorporate yoga-inspired stretches in my workouts and also promote stress management practices.

About Deana

I have been an NASM certified personal trainer since 2013 and a registered dietitian nutritionist since 2016. I have taught a wide variety of fitness classes from boot camps to weight-training, to HIIT-style cardio classes. My background is in dance, so I can also help clients increase their flex

This was a first for us completing online cheer training to keep my daughter engaged throughout COVID lockdown. Cheryl was kind and supportive of my daughter as she tried new cheers and movements.
Her daughter was also a great co-teacher!
Looking forward to week 2.
Kristiana B.
Cheryl was great!! She was very knowledgeable and patient. My daughter was able to learn what we would consider a lot on the very first lesson. Despite the technical difficulties we were having with our personal equipment Cheryl was able to work through those issues with us and continue a lesson. She was friendly kind and reassuring to my daughter who doesn’t always have the most confidence in herself. She is helping her learn something that she really wants to do And helping her with her self-confidence as well! Couldn’t ask for anything more! Thank you so much take lessons and Cheryl

"Those who live close to GM Ron P. should definitely take advantage of what he teaches. He is the most knowledgeable on the subject of Internal Arts that I have met in my 56 years of study. I myself have been teaching since the very early '70s, and have seen many who could use what GM P teaches."

"I am a physiotherapist and I work for NHS in England. I have been learning Tai chi for over 4 years and run classes for my patients and colleagues for 3 years. I am devoted to continuous professional development (CPD) in physiotherapy therefore I was looking for teachers and a school that represent the same principles and also have the students at heart. Ron and Linda are fantastic teachers and ITCA provides a supportive environment for the eager learners. I warmly recommend their weekend courses to build confidence in your own practice and teaching skills. Should you look for private lessons the experience won’t disappoint. Ron’s teaching is fun and refreshing and it also allows you to reflect on your own practice making the tai chi journey even more enjoyable and meaningful."

"With experience in ballet technique, gymnastics conditioning, and pilates, Veronica leads a very well-rounded class in strength and conditioning. She focuses on specific muscle groups and understands how to stretch and strengthen in a safe way for joints and tendons. Her motivation to address the supporting muscle groups instead of just bulking up the large muscles makes the work out very valuable as a dancer with an active lifestyle. It also helps that her pricing per lesson is very reasonable based on other online instructors. I highly recommend her for stretch and conditioning classes!"

"I have been having online lessons with Ron for over a year now, I have learnt the Yang 32 sword and progressed onto the Chen 28 fan form. I have learnt so much from Ron not only with these 2 forms but also in his online classes with other students, learning the 13 essentials. Ron is a great Master to work with I would recommend anyone to take a lesson with him you will be hooked."

"When I began to train with Patty I was a vending machine addict. Patty helped me kick my habit! I would buy 4 pops a day @ $1.25. This added up to $100 a month. I would also buy other vending machine items, totaling up to an additional $40.00 a month.
My work junk food vending machine habit ran me $140.00 a month...which pays for over half of what I spend in training with Patty! When people tell me I must be rich to have a trainer, I tell them "I just stopped eating and drinking crap and it pays for my sessions"...people don't realize how much they spend on junk food....hope this helps someone else!
