You'll learn the foundation of Hip-hop movements then how to perform choreography and freestyle, so you can adapt the moves to any song. We'll learn a different piece of unique choreography every lesson while going through each element of the routine at your own pace.
I've been dancing for 10 years and teaching for 3. I currently teach at 5 different studios and give regular private lessons to various students.

Once you're a regular student, I'll make unique routines to songs of your choosing with an emphasis on moves or styles that you like.
Jared did a great job of encouraging and empowering.

Jared was so nice and encouraging! He broke the steps and movements down simply for me. It was so fun! I’m practicing and looking forward to our next lesson.
March 4, 2019
Jared did a fantastic job of being able to feel out my daughter's abilities and quickly help her gain the skills needed to perform the routine. He was friendly, personable and a great teacher! We would highly recommend!

I am a professional Dancer and Choreographer. I graduated from the University of Alabama with a Bachelors in Kinesiology.

Deja had her first lesson with my daughter today. Deja was great. Right on time; worked with my daughter literally through the last minute of her lesson. I could hear Deja giving direction and instruction, and she was very encouraging and supportive. My daughter really liked her, and is excited about the process. (whew!). Great job!
December 11, 2018
I learned from Deja! 10 out of 10! She helped me become sharp in some movements and more feminine in others, the perfect blend! I witnessed her work with children too, she is great with people of all ages! Even when she couldn't do them all, she still helped me learn how to land my tricks! I love her! Thank you Deja!

I took a lesson with Tom. I really wanted to try him out because of all the great reviews he has, it definitely didn't fall short of my expectations. He was attentive, friendly, not judgelmental and a master of his craft. Thank you for all your tips.
March 27, 2019
It came to me again - that feeling that I could do anything. I know that's an exaggeration, but feelings of personal accomplishment lend a lot to taking future risks. Our dance team was under Tom's tutelage for four hours broken into two sessions and I was changed. He had persistence yet patience. He somehow gave everything enough attention, but kept us moving forward to use our time together the most wisely. He adapted to our unique and unusual dynamic and group personality, adopting our language while he taught us his.
My private lesson with him was special too. I remember feeling a bit vulnerable and self conscious in the first few minutes, wondering how we would connect on how to help me. I was put at ease as he listened to my thoughts, partnered with me in a quick exploratory dance, took the reins, and led me through an educational sixty minutes. I liked the way he made the specifics he was conveying accessible through brief relatable personal examples. I've had many people speak to me about frame, but the way he approached it and me was the way that has me doing better (I think!) I found Tom to be incredibly professional, personable, respectful and helpful.
I would certainly benefit from more time in his care.
March 9, 2019
Tom has a way of teaching that is easily understandable and make sense almost right away all the time. And this is awesome because I have no dance experience. He is just an all-around nice guy that is fun and knows what to say so that the lesson clicks for you he knows how to make you get it.
Everyone is uniquely different with special goals, ways of learning, and ideas in mind. I find pride in quickly learning what each of my students are looking for and leading the way to their own personal victories, no matter how big or small! I teach a number of styles including, but not limited to, Ballet, Modern, Jazz, Contemporary/Lyrical, Hip Hop/Street Jazz/Jazz Funk, Turns, Leaps & Jumps and more. Although I possess over 10 years of teaching experience, I find myself learning something new with nearly every student I encounter. Every student is a new opportunity for me to inspire AND be inspired.
The general structure of my classes are similar. Thorough warm up, which would include exercises, drills and foundational practices from the Ballet, Modern and Jazz genres, stretching, strengthening and conditioning sequences and finally execution of concepts directly related to the style I might be teaching sum them up well. In the end, my goal is for my students to leave feeling ...
I am a Multi-Award Winning Dancer, Teacher & Choreographer with a passion for advancing the dance art form as a whole!!!
I perform, teach and choreograph numerous styles and subjects in dance including, but not limited to,
- Ballet (Vaganova) - Hip Hop/Street Jazz/ Jazz Funk - Jazz - Modern (Horton) - Contemporary - Lyrical - Classic & Contemporary Partnering - Improvisation - Creative Movement - Choreography 101 and more!
I received my BFA in Dance Theatre Performance from Marygrove College in Detroit, MI where I have tried to contribute to the overall condition of the dance community. During my time there, I trained with many renowned dance instructors and choreographers from all over the country. Among many awards and forms of recognition, I have received scholarships from outstanding programs such as Complexions
Contemporary Ballet, Deeply Rooted Dance Theater and Point Park University. These opportunities and others positioned me to work with artists such as Brian McKnight, Jodeci and, Jazz Artist, Jonathan Butler to name a few. Over the past 10 years, I've had the pleasure of dancing, teaching and choreographing for numerous competitive, pre-professional & professional dance companies throughout Michigan and surrounding states.
I have been dedicated to the empowerment of artists and the enhancement of our community and that passion fuels me daily. With that in mind, I created both a dance and production company to work towards those goals. In 2018, I received the high honor of becoming a Gilda Award Recipient with the Kresge Foundation for all of my endeavors. It was an amazing thing to be recognized by such an organization as well as fellow artists throughout my community.
Since then, I have continued to inspire particularly the youth. I have taken on a position as Co-Director at a multi-award winning, internationally-ranked dance facility where I am able to cultivate the future of dance everyday. I continue to dance, teach and choreograph throughout the state and plan to create growth within myself so that I can help others do the same.
I love your choreo so much! You bring out the best in everyone especially ME 😉. Your turns, leaps and jumps are sooo beautiful. I always look forward to you coming to do new pieces or master classes at my studio. Hope to see you soon

Mr. Brandyn is the ABSOLUTE BEST!!!! He is an amazing dancer and pushes all of his students to be the best we can be. He's hard on us yet he understands each of our differences and encourages us to embrace them. When I take class with him, I mentally prepare myself to push my limits and seek results because I know that if I dont, I would be doing myself a disservice and futhermore, HE WILL lol. Mr. B has inspired me to become a professional dancer because I've never seen someone love anything as much as he loves dance. I want to experience a love that great. His passion for the art form oozes from him and I feel lucky to have him as a teacher!!!!
I got my start in dance at the age of three and was classically trained in a dance school as well as in my academic school. I had my first choreography project in high school and immediately fell in love with the ability to create a story through movement. For some extra training and exposure, I began to teach at a separate dance school in addition to my high school team and my dance school I had been competing with since first starting my career. While I’m college, although I did not major in dance, I joined a semi professional company that allowed me to continue my art along with my studies and used it as an avenue for expression and self exploration. After a 20 year career, I so look forward to giving you/your children the gift that has continued to give to me for so many years.
My love for dance grows far beyond my 20 years in the field, it has become apart of who I am and look forward to sharing that with you in a unique and exciting way! I am able to offer individualized and custom lessons that will tailor your experience to be one of a kind, ensuring you get the most out of your experience. Feel free to ask me about my exciting experiences including traveling all over the world for dance, as well as some of my experience teaching right here in my home state of North Carolina! Whether you’re 3 or 73, I’d love to teach you what the art of dance is all about.

ense of confidence in my 14 year old daughter, by being patient and helping her develop the basic core skills from a beginner point of view. I highly recommend Kenneth !"
"I've never had a dance lesson before and was pretty nervous about this but Tanya made me feel comfortable and I eventually relaxed and enjoyed myself!
"What a super teacher! We stayed on task and worked hard which is how I used to teach. I am ready for the next lesson, he really is a great teacher, he m
ade it fun but still a workout, I learned so much!"
