In my class the focus will be to tailor the movement to your specific needs whilst sharing with you all my knowledge to help you grow and achieve your goals.
We will work on your technique as well as your artistry.
A beautiful dancer doesn't only have a strong technique but the ability to embody a character and convey a story through movements.
All my classes are open to all levels, if you are a beginner dancer we will take the time to go in details through every moves, if you are more advanced I will challenge your technique and artistry but most importantly we will have fun sharing our common passion for dance.

We’ve had two classes at the time of this review. Our expressed goal was to introduce my daughter to different techniques and keep her in motion, to hopefully foster a love of dance. Sacha is magnificent, she has exceeded our expectations. The first class, while she was getting to know my 6 year old daughter, she seemed to observe and adapt to her, meeting her where she was and sharing control of the class, even letting her suggest a dance world involving rainbows. She let her use her imagination while teaching the movement. Needless to say, my daughter told everyone standing still that she loved Sacha and loved dance. Second class, Sacha started class with concepts of ballet, capturing my daughters attention easily. Historically, she will stall and distract when in lessons, but not for Sacha. My daughter also has a tendency to interrupt and share, and Sacha is patient and acknowledges and redirects her with grace. She also remembered the discussions they had during the last class and asked about it, which is a beautiful way to show a child that what they think and share is important. My daughter asked her about Frozen and the next class she used a Frozen song for choreo. Outstanding. She also offers a great deal of praise which is so important for early learners. I feel lucky to have found her, highly recommend her to teach children and any student who thrives in a supportive, positive and encouraging environment.

We just finished our first lesson and Miss Sacha was so good with our daughter that she can't wait for the next lesson!

Sacha is an outstanding teacher, will recommend her 100%, the way she made me connect my emotions with the movement was amazing

Dance is dedicated to the youth and adults in the community where all dancers can have fun, express creativity, build self-confidence while at the same time learn the fundamentals of different styles of dance. Dancers will have the opportunity to develop technique and personal development that will lead them to grow as a performing artist. I truly believe that everyone should recognize their passion and follow their hearts and dreams.

I strive to continue the tradition of integrity, excellence, and passion of the arts where all dancers are thriving in the artistic community!

About Noreen

I started dancing at the age of 7 training in jazz, hip hop, lyrical, ballet and tap dancing. I participated in several dance competitions such as Shows Stopper and Star Power where I continue to strive and developed the passion for dance. I have a degree in Early Childhood Education and Child Psy

Ms. Noreen has got to be one of the best dance teachers around! As a result of taking her classes, I have become more knowledgeable in the field of dance, as well as a more confident person. She is a patient, kind, and understanding person, determined to help her students reach their full potential as dancers. I highly recommend taking her classes (which range from ballet, hip hop, jazz, and tap) if you're a beginner dancer, or even an experienced one wanting to hone your skills. You'll definitely progress as a dancer and perhaps make some new friends through class! :))

I've taken private lessons with Ms. Noreen for a while. The lessons helped improve my flexibility, core strength also my ability to dance and boost my confidence of dancing in front of an audience. I highly recommend these lessons

KaCee is an excellent choreographer and has a keen eye for developing talent and a great eye for detail. She is outgoing and displays professionalism and cares so much about teaching! She is always so encouraging and most importantly she makes you a better dancer!
Stephanie
KaCee is a great dance instructor. As someone without an extensive background in dance KaCee was able to meet me where my skillset was and work with me until I was at the level I needed to be. I have worked with KaCee in both Hiphop and a Heels dance class. Her positive energy is such a pleasure to be around. I would recommend KaCee to anyone!

I really enjoy the Dance Fitness Sessions we do together and no wonder Mary's talent in music and rhythm synchronization gave an extra point to the whole experience. Even if my day is hard and I do the extra mile to keep up with my sessions I'm always rewarded in the end with great mood and feeling pumped. I highly recommend Mary to keep you fit and enjoy yourself at the same time.

I m a female senior citizen of 75 yrs old and have suffered from chronic back pain and weak and stiff muscles. when I met Mary I fell in love with her. Her pleasant and warm disposition attracted me immediately. I liked the idea of her online training sessions, so I don’t have to travel to a gym. She is very patient with me and knows how to keep me motivated to continue exercising. She has changed my life and boost my desire to get better.
Mary is very talented with many years of experience in both Pilates and physical training and she is a beautiful ballet teacher as well! I highly recommend her !

"We hired Ms. Mayuko to supplement my daughter’s rhythmic gymnastics training. Ms. Mayuko delivered rigorous ballet lessons in sequence to help build my daughter’s foundation in classical ballet, but to also improve her ability to accomplish a strict code of points for competition in rhythmic gymnastics. With Ms. Mayuko’s program, my daughter achieved her split leaps, extension, and turns in less than 6 months. My daughter was able to get the all-around gold title for her state and region, in large part to Ms. Mayuko’s training. She is strict and her lessons are rigorous, yet her genuine love for working with children is imminent and is what kept my daughter’s motivation for ballet and gym going. I recommend Ms. Mayuko to the highest degree."
