Here it is 8 years later and I am currently a music teacher myself :-)."
My experience: I had been dancing salsa, bachata, cumbia, and merengue for about 7 years before starting with Ureka. For salsa and bachata, we worked on styling and some tightening up my execution of some advanced steps / combos.
About 15 years prior to meeting Ureka, I had taken ballroom group and private classes for about 6 months and from that, remembered the basic steps for cha cha, waltz, rumba, and American tango. I had also taken a couple salsa rueda lessons, but didn't really retain it. We increased my abilities in those dances.
Ureka taught me kizomba, hustle, triple swing, Argentine tango, and samba from scratch. At dance parties that she hosted, we also danced cumbia and merengue together, even though we didn't cover them in my lessons.
Ureka is by far the best dance instructor I've ever had, in large part because she figured out how to explain things to me in a way that helped _me_ "get it". I'm kind of uncoordinated and slow to learn physical things, and I'm not particularly graceful. I also have bad eyesight, bad depth perception, and I have this problem where my eyes don't focus together (according to the eye doctor) so I'm always slightly off balance. I'm the one always falling over in yoga classes. :-) I can't wear heels because of it. I've also been told that I lack rhythm. I am not even kidding; I am a klutz.
HOWEVER, after the group classes and about 20 of my private lessons, I had two ladies in one weekend tell me that I was a pretty dancer with nice style. ME! The clumsy dork who has no business being on a dance floor.... I am not ever going to win any awards, but I have SO MUCH FUN on the dance floor.
I had been getting a little bored with salsa and bachata and was going dancing less and less. Before my experience with Ureka, I probably would have eventually quit dancing. But she gave me more confidence and guided me back to my passion for dancing.
I've had lots of instructors, and there are lots of pretty, graceful dancers out there who can demonstrate steps and explain them. But Ureka has done the best job - by far - of getting through to my cells. Even in group class, she makes the dances so accessible to everyone. The people who had Ureka as their first instructor have no idea how spoiled they are.
I cannot give her enough accolades.. Ureka is truly amazing, as an intructor and as a person, and I'm honored to have learned from her and danced with her."
Her techniques and exercises are amazing to watch as the intended result will come out of the student that she is working on. I learned just as much watching other students in the class go through the techniques as I did during my own performances and critiques.
She has a beautiful presence and I instantly felt comfortable around her like I'd known her for a long time. I think that is so important to feel that trust and comfort when opening yourself and exposing things dealing with singing and performing.
I can tell that she is very passionate at what she does and she is VERY GOOD at it as a result. She wants to help people in a positive way and is very encouraging.
I also love how her exercises are not only physical but get you thinking ahead about positive wonderful things that are of your dreams; it helps you to envision and eventually attract the positive things that you dream of. For example, she had us describe our "perfect 24 hour day". That was an amazing concept to me. If you can envision your perfect day and your perfect circumstances, you are so much closer to actually achieving them! These exercises help and instantly translate to better singing and better performing as we witnessed in the class. She is full of these tricks and techniques!
I would highly recommend working with Jan. She has a wealth of experience and wisdom to share with as many students that are lucky enough to work with her."
And they're not alone!
