About Melanie

I take great joy in bringing art to the surface that the student didn't even know they had within them! Creating art is mainly about confidence, and I build that with each person, one on one. As they gain confidence, the techniques needed to create meaningful and engaging art come more easily. I ha

My story - From Romeo and Juliette the soft spoken advanced dancer to Albert and Chicago, a diva in the making where an actress was born. It took Albert to unveil the talents yet undiscovered to create a real Bratt! Chicago and the 2 men, a theatrical dance choreography by Albert mesmerized the audience. There were moves that I believed I would never do and have, and dressed up in a dress only my dreams would see. Had it not been for Albert I would have never challenged myself to do different style dances to my heart’ desire with no fear!
Amelia De Micco
Albert is a phenomenal teacher. I have taken many group lessons with him in Montreal where Argentine tango was taught. The precision of the dance moves and the care shown for every student was amazing. Also, the choreographies were one of a kind. In Argentine Tango there is one particular move where the lady lifts her body mid air to cross both legs while the man is assisting her in this move - Amelia’s move was the nickname - for a reason. For all the practice in the world, I couldn’t get this move if you paid me. Not only did Albert reinforce that ‘I WILL DO IT’, he gave me the technique, love and care to make me continue to persevere, For the students that had mastered the move, his care for all students allowed the group to cheer me on where Amelia’s move nickname was born. The men in our group assisted me greatly and the ladies gave pointers that worked for them. After all, we were one family. When the date of the showcase arrived, the formation was a great success! Not a glitch in sight from anyone of us, all smiles and for me the feeling of having climbed Mount Everest. I will always cherish the great teachings I received from Albert and the beautiful picture taken of this signature move. Not only Albert commands a room in a spectacular way, for his students dare to dream the impossible dream. For Albert nothing in ever impossible to achieve only possibilities not yet explored.
Estelle
It took me a while to work up the courage to enroll in dance classes without a partner. Albert made me feel comfortable and at ease right away. He is a very gifted teacher who has a way of breaking down the steps to make it easy and fun and yet he is very detail oriented and professional. He is always very encouraging and so much fun to be around.

Hi, I'm Laura and I believe everyone has a unique and authentic voice that deserves to be uncovered. Whether you have stage aspirations or are simply interested in learning more about music, voice lessons can be a great way to build confidence and grow in your sense of self. We'll work together to develop a language and a tool box that will enable you to reach your fullest potential as a singer.

I have been teaching privately for more than 10 years. Alongside teaching, I spent time directing church choirs and performing. I am passionately committed to the growth of my students, and use my experience as a singer, my knowledge of vocal technique, and my background as a yoga instructor, to enable students to reach their fullest potential. Whether you are interested in pop, musical theater, or opera, I can teach you the techniques necessary to achieve your goals.
I look forward to hearing from you!

About Laura

Hi, I’m Laura, and I want to tell you right now, you CAN sing and you SHOULD sing. From birth until death, the voice is our primary vehicle for expression. When you take a voice lesson, you are learning more than just good vocal technique (though that’s important). You’re learning about yourse

Private Yoga sessions with Alexandra are the best investment I made this year. I am so grateful for our weekly sessions and she has also helped me to develop a daily yoga practice of my own. My anxiety has improved tremendously and I’m so grateful for her care and guidance. Highly recommend!

"Upon my first time working with Erin it was extremely obvious how technically proficient she is, although it should be no surprise, since she has a Masters in Acting from a top graduate program. Not only was I able to place complete and utter trust in her extensive knowledge of the craft, but her nurturing energy and humorous demeanor create such a positive environment to take risks and be exploratory in my work. I couldn’t ask for anything more in an acting instructor. She’s truly awesome."

How to Read & Understand Stage Directions

If you’ve ever been in a play or musical you will be familiar with the term ‘stage directions’. For those who don’t know, stage directions are,  “an instruction in the text of a play, especially one indicating the movement, position, or tone of an actor.” Stage directions can also be instructions for the director, such as the way the stage should be lit or what kind of sound effect could be used.  Stage directions can also tell an actor how to deliver a line— pace of speech, emot …
