Teresa really helped me understand a deeper part of telling a story through a character. She is awesome!
Sarah
Teresa is a very knowledgeable and talented teacher! I have learned so many new techniques with sewing and clothing design thanks to her! She is very patient, kind, and dedicated to making sure her students acquire the skills they need to be successful. She thoroughly explains the projects we are working on as well as gives a clear demonstration on any project we are working on. Her in home studio is beautiful! It is quiet, clean, and organized. I truly enjoy my visits there! I’m very lucky that I found Teresa through Take Lessons and I’m so thankful to have her as my sewing guru!
Paige L.
Theresa was amazing is all I can say. My daughter needed a choreographed ballet program in three days and she pulled it together and made extra time to fit her in so she could perfect it. I should say my daughter has not done ballet since the start of the pandemic. I am so thankful for her.

I teach movement from a holistic perspective. My approach marries theory, musicianship, and technique with the emotional engagement and storytelling qualities inherent to good, evocative dancing. Lessons are created and curated for you, your specific goals, physical needs, and learning preferences. If you want to learn how to dance to live music, create exciting footwork patterns, become more flexible, build muscle, get an endorphin rush or simply get your steps in ... I can help!

My students learn not only how to dance Flamenco but how to understand it. I try to make lessons fun and engaging for students of all ages (5+) and abilities (brand new - advanced). My lessons are built around a creating a general movement practice by using the Flamenco style and idiom.

I studied Flamenco for over ten years with the Garcia Dance Studio under the instruction of great teachers such as Laura Garcia, Marissa Urzua, Pamela Laurent, Clara Rodriguez, Roberto Amaral, and Timo Nunez. I have danced

Para los jóvenes, la educación se ha vuelto uno de los retos diarios para enfrentar ante la sociedad. Hoy en día, las oportunidades para encontrar un ambiente cómodo y estable para desempeñar una asignatura han desafiado las habilidades de miles de estudiantes y profesores alrededor del mundo. Para mi, Gabriela es un claro ejemplo de que cuando uno quiere aprender y lograr sus propias metas, se pude.
Mis años de estudios con Gabriela me han enseñado la importancia, la dedicación y el cariño que le pone a cualquier estudiante que solicite su ayuda.
Es una maestra leal, limpia, ordenada y sobre todo amante de las comunicaciones. Las clases de Gabriela siempre son interactivas, la inclusión social se presenta y sobre todo la enseñanza se vuelve emotiva.
Ella es la clase de profesora que siempre te motivara a mejorar y que te acompañara en cada uno de tus logros para asi, cumplir tus objetivos.
Una de las mejores maestras que pude tener a lo largo de mi vida y con la cual estoy muy agradecida por todas las herramientas que me ha brindado para enfrentar cada uno de mis días.
!Excelente profesora!
Rocio Terrazas
Gabriela is a wonderful educator. I strongly believe she was born to teach. I enjoy her teaching methods because they are engaging, fun, very practical, and creative. I would recommend her to anyone who wants to learn Spanish. She is awesome!
P.S. She will teach you very interesting things about Mexican culture and food if you want. I think that is an amazing bonus.
