Private Tap Dance Teacher

Before beginning the lesson, I ask the student what he or she wants. What does he or she specifically want to learn or gain from dance lessons? My lessons are completely tailored around my student's wants and needs. Dance is supposed to be a fun, relaxing form of expression, so I like to help my students express themselves through movement in a way that is comfortable and fun for them.

In tap, we will start off simply with shuffles, flaps, ball changes and work our way up to more advanced moves that combine rhythm and coordination. It will be fun combinations set to clean music that is popular today!

Jennifer has such wonderful warmth, dance expertise and positive presence. Love her!
Kyla
Jennifer is an amazing teacher! She provides amazing feedback and clearly knows her stuff. She is energetic and helps to bring a deep understanding of movement. I highly suggest Jennifer for privates!
Robyn
I have trained alongside Jennifer as a dancer and have seen her in action in the studio not only as the student but as the teacher. Her compassion, diligence, and dedication to sharing her own love of ballet with her students is admirable and shines through. She is dedicated to not only providing safe and polished technique and artistry but also to learning from her students and seeking out ways to improve herself.

Speaking as a peer, Jennifer's teaching style is a great hybrid between a technique-driven, traditional curriculum and a wholesome appreciation for the joy and spirit that keeps dance as a universal language. Students not only gain an understanding of the vocabulary but a safe space to develop discipline, strength and confidence.
