Carolyn has and is exactly what I was looking for in a voice coach. Like me, her interests in the performing arts are broad. I felt both excited and comfortable with her. She is professional and easy to talk to. I can sense strongly that Carolyn is full of love and compassion. I am so excited for the next lesson! Here's to the new horizon and everything in between! :) Thank you Carolyn for reassuring me that my decision to switch careers was a wise decision indeed. Dance forward.

could not have been a better start to my lessons!

My first lesson with Carolyn was very positive. She quickly assessed where I was and started from that point so we didn't waste time. She showed great passion for songwriting and a genuine interest in my development.

My tap dance lessons will be tailored to you. Let me know what your goals are and what your motivation is for taking these dance lessons, and I will do my best to help you reach those goals. I have been extensively trained and have had several years of experience teaching many styles of dance - Ballet, Tap, Jazz, Scottish Highland, and Ballroom (including International and American styles). However, due to the current pandemic and availability of space, I am only teaching Tap dance right now. I have worked in dance studios for several years and was able to teach a couple of beginning and intermediate social dance courses at Brigham Young University as a student instructor as well. I am passionate about all things dance and am excited to go on this journey with you.

Great if you don't have any experience and want to learn the basics, or if you have a little bit of experience but want to brush up on your technique.

You can either suggest a song, that I will be choreographing to or we are just working on specific areas, that you choose. Class is all about you- in a encouraging and positive environment.

Lessons are customized to each student depending on your goals and needs.

Miri made it so fun and easy to shake the first time nerves! So glad I decided to give this a shot! ❤️

Jessica M.
Miri taught K-pop choreography to my 9 yro son and I. She is the best! She worked with us on song selection, changed the choreo when needed so it wasn't too hard for beginners, and was so positive and patient that we felt totally comfortable dancing in front her on a Zoom call. She sent us videos to practice with between lessons and always came prepared with a plan. I cannot recommend Miri highly enough!

"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!"
