Michelle A. New York, NY

I teach absolute beginners, children, and pre-professional dancers. I welcome students who have never stepped foot into a dance studio before and just want to have fun. I assure you, if I can have my rowdy three year old students leaping across the floor with grace I can teach you how to move!

About michelle

Hello Students! My name is Michelle and I have been dancing since I was seven years old! I was one of two graduates to earn my Bachelor of Fine Art in Dance/Dance Pedagogy from Columbia College Chicago in 2011. I have since moved back to New York City where I dance for a professional modern dance company in downtown Manhattan. When I am not teaching class, I am busy being a student of my own all over New York City at prestigious studios such as Steps on Broadway, Gibney Dance Center and Broadway Dance Center. It is here where I take daily classes with the country's greatest dance teachers/choreographers to continue my never ending training in dance techniques and developments. As a working professional dancer, I understand the rigor that it takes to achieve your goals and I work ...

Talented and passionate teacher

Michelle is the total package when looking for a dance teacher. Not only does she have a passion for dance and passing this on to her students. She is extremely professional. Her years of experience and study are evident in the way she approaches teaching. Michelle knows how the body works, and is able to explain things in a way that make sense to her students. I always have fun working with Michelle. She is a constant motivator. I feel like a more confident dancer having worked with Michelle. It truly is a gift.

Could not ask for more!

Lara is a very personable and engaging instructor but always professional. We have had her instructing our daughter for over a year now. Lara has always been able identify and meet our daughter where ever she is. With a 5-6 year old child that is not an easy task to accomplish but she makes it look easy and natural! We are extremely happy with how our daughter is progressing with Lara.

I had to attend a buddy's Wedding. I'm in my fifties and never been a good dancer. When I attended Wedding receptions two to three decades ago, I would manage to get through the dancing, sort of. This time, however, there was no getting around it. I would have to know how to dance because the woman that was accompanying me to the Wedding and reception was a Dance minor in College! I had a month to get it together so I contacted Michelle through Take Lessons.

Michelle is a patient knowledgeable teacher. She started me with basic dancing steps to “Panda Bear - Doin' it Right .” The basic dance steps that Michelle taught me can be used for virtually all Rock/Disco/Techno music that you will encounter. The tempos might vary, but the steps remain the same. When I became more proficient Michelle taught me line dances such as the “Macarena” and the “Cha Cha Slide.”

When I attended the Wedding reception with the Dance minor, I was confident and comfortable on the Dance floor thanks to Michelle!

Highly Recommended.
