I have been teaching ballet and pointe for over 40 years to both recreational and serious dancers of all ages and levels. My continued love for dance stems from a love of nurturing young people and building confidence through dance. Students who are committed to leaning, apply themselves, and have a great work ethic can rise to the next level of their dance training. My classroom is positive and upbeat place where we will work on flexibility, strength, and clean technique.

About Paul

Hi there! My name is Paul! I have been teaching ballet and pointe for the past 40 years, and operating my own dance studio in PA for over 30 years. I began my training at the age of 13 in my hometown. Upon graduating, I moved to NYC to train at the Dance Theatre of Harlem under Arthur Mitchell and

Great Teacher

Phyllis is the best singing teacher I have ever had. She is completely knowledgeable about technique and personalizes each class for her students. Phyllis is so sweet, and believes that there is a singing voice inside of all of us. Since I have started taking lessons with her, my range has expanded and not only that, I have gained new knowledge about sheet music that I had never heard before. I would highly recommend choosing her as your teacher.

I love to teach! I love to share this amazing means of expression with whoever wants to learn and respect it. It doesn't matter what level you're at, we all have to start somewhere and we can always get better. If you are looking for Choreo, HH Fitness or just to get started I'm definitely your guy. Ask as many questions as you like. Ive been teaching for over 15 years. All ages from 7-70.

A little about me. I started dancing in 2003. I connected with dancers from the DMV which led me to Breakdance practices at College Park, UMBC, JHU and more. As I got better and more skilled local crews began to take notice. I was inducted into The Deadly Venoms Crew "DVC" in 2010. The entire time training as a BBoy i was also learning and picking up other HH styles such as House, Krump and Popping. One was just not enough for me. In 2011 I competed in numerous All-Styles and Top Rock battles Nationally. In 2013 I was a showcase street performer in the production “Working America” and later that

About Jonathan “Nino”

If you want to learn HipHop then you should learn from someone who has not only taught the styles but also understands the Culture. I've traveled the country and the world competing, training and working with some of the best dancers in HipHop. I love to dance but the only thing i love more is help

Nino is wonderful! My SO and I had no experience in dance, let alone hip hop. Our first lesson with Nino was connective, thorough and so much fun. Very excited for our future lessons to come.
Mary A.
He has been great and super patient with my son.
Mason B.
Nino is PHENOMENAL with my son (7 yo). He has already taught him a ton in just three lessons and my son is really enjoying class. Nino teaches at the perfect level and is incredibly supportive but doesn't let my son mess around. I couldn't be happier with him as a teacher and mentor. If I could give more than 5 stars, I would.

"I have worked with Erin on several occasions, because she is so wonderful at her job! She has helped me to prepare for numerous auditions, many of which have gone very well as a result. She is an incredible actor herself, and she uses her talent and expertise to help me be the best actor I can be. Finding my super objective in a monologue or scene, the different tactics, focus, awareness, groundedness... these are all things she has helped me to do to strengthen my own work. She is down to earth and open, which makes working with her really easy and comfortable. Performing my work in front of somebody else can be very difficult, because I often question what the viewer will think of me. Not only does Erin help me fight that fear, she helps me find the gratitude and joy in getting to perform. I highly recommend Erin as an acting coach! She’s fantastic!"
