Want to dance like the pros? Interested in learning the latest dance trends and develop your own unique dance style? I will help you build a solid foundation of dance theory and technique while tailoring to your personal tastes and goals. Part of my lesson plan involves me breaking down the basic movements of dance in a way that allows you an easy learning experience to build on further dance development to reach your full potential as a dancer. All ages are welcome. Shoot me a message to see if we're a good match!
I am a professional Dancer and Choreographer. I graduated from the University of Alabama with a Bachelors in Kinesiology.
Dance students can expect to improve week to week in their Dance technique. Every dance has a unique rhythm; I teach students to release built up tension and apply foundational techniques in order to unlock their own individual style. I can help any student to dance with freedom, confidence, and expression.
I teach students of all different ages and experience levels. I studied hip hop dance for 11 years. I can teach students to learn their bodies natural flow and to also improve their balance.
As a professional dancer I frequently take trips to New York for video shoots, recording artist, and meeting with other dancers for group dance projects. I have dance for Nike the last two years which as been an amazing exper
ience which also taught me so much and makes me appreciate what I do even more. I love to mentor students who want to become effective, dynamic dancers and reach their full potential to take their dancing to the next level.
My personal passion is dance but I firmly believe that great technique is essential to any and every style. I look forward to meeting you and helping you to become a better dancer!
Do you want to build your confidence? Command the attention on any dance floor? Prepare for an audition? Or simply brush up on some dance moves? I am the girl for you.
I have over 10 years of dancing under my belt, six of those years I've spent being a professional dancer. You may see me in: Apple's iPad 2 Commercial, So You Think You Can Dance Season 14, ShowTime at The Apollo, Volkswagen Car Show, America's Got Talent, Chris Brown Brown's "Party Video", etc.
I previously taught a class every Friday at City Dance in San Francisco. There is nothing more rewarding than witnessing a student thrive & knowing that I contributed to their growth in skill, confidence & overall presence when you walk into a room brings me so much joy & I can't wait to work with you!
I bet your probably a little flustered trying to decide who you want to learn Hip-Hop from, trust me I get it. Hopefully, I can make your job a little easier.
My name is Deja I have been a professional dancer for 6 years. I attended the "San Francisco School of The Arts" where I studied Modern, Contemporary & Ballet but my true passion is Hip-Hop. I dabbled in break dancing for a couple years. Majority of my career I've spent choreographing & improving my ability to retain & execute choreography. You can catch me in: So You Think You Can Dance Season 14, Apple IPad 2 Commercial, America's Got Talent, Chris Brown's "Party" Music Video, Volkswagen Car Show (Shanghai, China)
I am here to boost your growing process & help you blossom into the "You" you've always dreamed of becoming. Dance builds your confidence, keeps y
ou in great shape & personally it changed my life for the better...hopefully it can do the same for you.
I can help you with: Learning & Creating Choreography. Preparing for an audition. Nailing that trick. Or simply catching the rhythm to any song.
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!

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!
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!!!!
Experienced teacher of 7 years specialized in beginner, intermediate and advanced dance training. Dance lessons with me would be impactful. With the gift of dancing that I exhibits not only with performing but also to inspire others to pursue their dreams is what I hopes my students gain from each lesson. I continue to inspire the youth to go after their dreams no matter what occupation it may be. A quote that I advocate wholeheartedly is “To never get discouraged but encourage others to find something that they are passionate about and go for it”.

"Our Grandson Caleb had his first Hip Hop lesson with Miss G last week. I highly recommend Miss G. She makes learning fun and interesting. She keeps things
lite and low key and is able to keep Caleb focused. Miss G interacts with children exceptionally well. Caleb can't wait for his second lesson!!"
"First lesson went very well! Can already tell that I'll be making major progress soon. Looking forward to the next lesson."
"Jared's routines are fun to learn and he's very patient while teaching them. I've been taking lessons with him for the past few months and I couldn't reco
mmend it more!"
"She is very good we love hear"
"Thank you Ms. G for your class today. Soralya has gained some sweet moves after today's lesson. Looking forward to the next one."
"We had such a great time with Briana! I surprised my boyfriend with a Hip Hop dance class for our anniversary and Briana made the afternoon so much fun. I
am not a dancer (at all) and she was able to get me out of my shell and moving to the music in no time.
Our appointment was a 60min session and we both felt that was a perfect amount of time for us. Briana also included a warm up and cool down which both of us appreciated.
Briana, was also very flexible in terms of appointment time, song choice, and choreography. If there was a move that wasn't feeling quite right or a step we couldn't master she would change up the steps or patiently walk us through the movement again.
We had such a good time we will be booking with her again soon!"
"Awesome, energetic, fun and professional, really knows her stuff and is very in tune with teaching"
"Kay is a wonderful dancer and teacher! She gives me handy little tips to remember and learn faster."
"He's a quite incredible instructor. He helped me come out of my shell and to dance 200% even when it was just practice. Kenneth truly helped me go beyond
my boundaries in order for me to expand my techniques"
