My goals are to work on your coordination and flexibility along with proper ballet technique. All classes will be tailored to each student accordingly.

About Lindsay

In home and in studio classes are a 1 hour minimum. Online lessons are also available at 30 and 45 minute durations please call takelessons to book.

Hey there! My name is Lindsay. I truly enjoy teaching everything in the realm of physical activity. I grew up dancing at Mark Spivaks Institute in Jacksonville, Florida. I studied under a Russian Prima ballerina. I played soccer. I swam. My lifestyle at a young age has reflected in my work as an adult. Nowadays I love yoga, hiking, running, art, and being a big sister! If I have one goal in my professional life it would be to inspire active living in today's youth. I completed my 450 hour pilates certification which compliments my teachings in every field due to the anatomical approach. Currently I work as a dance teacher, pilates instructor, yoga teacher and flexibility coach. My pa

ssion for movement will inspire you to achieve your goals. I love to make any positive difference to a client: in their day, in their body, in their outlook. I’m an eager student, so I’m constantly teaching new stuff I’ve recently learned. I look forward to meeting you and reaching the finish line- whatever that may be!

I am enthusiastic about teaching online lessons as well. I find that online training works amazingly well, and is extremely convenient for people with busy schedules.

For Dance - Lindsay teaches ballet, social club, and basic hip hop and tap

Please inquire about rates for semi privates, group, and corporate training.

I love taking my online classes with Lindsay! Having a really busy schedule, I thought at first this was an indulgence to have a class in the comfort of my own home, however I've rethought that since I've started. These are necessary to keeping, not just my physique in shape, but my ballet up to par, as well as my mental state of being calm, focused & happy. Lindsay is very skilled at shifting each class to what is best for me that day. She's skilled & knowledgeable, proficient, professional, friendly, fun & gives me a thorough workout! Thank you Lindsay!

I grew up in Denmark in Europe and have spent my whole life dancing with The Royal Danish Ballet. I've danced every ballet in the book; Swan lake, Nutcracker, Sleeping Beauty, Alice in Wonderland and about one hundred more and worked with countless of choreographers, instructors and teachers and I absolutely love sharing my knowledge and my anecdotes from my fortunate career. Come and dance with me!

Benita understands how to teach passion and expression to others. She has the unique talent not only as a dancer herself but as a teacher to bring than on to her students. Very few teachers can do that.
To quote from Mozart in the jungle.
She dances/teaches with the blood.

To whom it my concern



An appreciation of Avetik, the Teacher



I have had the good fortune to watch Avetik in international ballet competitions in which he has consistently won medals, so anyone looking for a coach could not find a more experienced and competition wise individual.



Anyone who has watched his Avetik's Workout cannot have any doubts that he has a knowledge and control of the human body which is unmatched by any dancer I have seen. I base my opinion on 80 years in the profession of classical ballet.


In my professional opinion he has the most secure and strong classical technique unparalled by any dancer, anywhere today. This as a result of the training which he received some the greatest male teacher of his time.


He understood then, and maintains now, that great tradition in his teaching. It would be hard, if not impossible, to find better training anywhere now.

He also will has the very rare qualities that make a great teacher. Without patience, understanding and gentleness combined with discipline, no teacher can expect to get results.

Anyone who has the chance to study with him must consider themselves the most fortunate student.

I teach from the understanding that our bodies set the limits. We can push them but we must respect them. I encourage those who are afraid to try ballet to be brave and discover what ballet can offer your body at any age. Ballet will make you strong in more ways than any other sport. You feel it from the inside out.

About Joyel

I enjoy teaching with a respect of a beginner. That means any age can be taught if they are humble no matter what the level of dancer. I love to share the love of dance in my soul. I’m the kind of dancer that makes the music dance. The music is the biggest teacher along with your own body. If you slow down you’ll feel the waves.

Ballet has been my passion for almost 18 years. I started when I was 3 (now I'm 22), and I only love ballet more and more each day. I was trained in the Vaganova style of ballet (Russian) until I was 14 in Minnesota. When I moved to Ohio for high school, the dance school in my area taught in the Balanchine style of American ballet. When I returned to Minnesota for college in 2015, I started dancing at the Minnesota Dance Theater. I recently moved to Florida and run my own home dance studio. No matter which style you want to learn, I can offer you the best tips and exercises! Ready to put on your slipper and dance across the floor? Take the course now!

Serena was a wonderful instructor/tutor to my 12yr old son. He was able to absorb the material easily and retain the lessons learned in order to improve his performance at school. I would definitely recommend Serena if you are serious about learning a specific subject you or your children may be lacking in.

I took a film production history with Serena and to my big surprise the course was quite interesting. I needed help with Film production history so I wont have to retake the class and I'm glad Serena was able to help me. she made the class that was actually dreadful to me to something less challenging. Give her a shot guys you won't regret it. Thanks Serena

Hi there! My name is Meg and I want to help you gain confidence, get in shape, try something new, or even work on something you’ve been practicing for years! I’m here to help you reach your goals and have fun doing so!

I grew up in North Carolina and began ballet when I was three and theatre a few years later. I studied at the Raleigh City Ballet and did pre-professional programs with Carolina Ballet and the University of NC School of the Arts. My love for theatre kept me from pursuing professional ballet and I attended the University of Michigan and received my BFA in Musical Theatre from one of the top programs in the country.

Currently I am a teacher, actor, and professional dancer with 10 years of teaching and industry experience. I have a versatile background in numerous styles of dance, acting, fitness, modeling and theatre.

I fell in love with performing at a very young age and haven’t stopped since; one of my greatest passions is sharing that love with others!

I work with all ages and levels from toddlers to adults, beginners to experts! My lessons are challenging, creative, and lots of fun!
