Gerri G. Sherman Oaks, CA

About Gerri

My musical career has taken me around the globe from Japan, to the Caribbean as well as numerous cities in the U.S. and Europe! A New York City native, I graduated James Madison University's renowned music program, and began work in musical theatre, playing such roles as Z.’s Favorite in The national tour of “The Will Roger’s Follies, Sandy in “Grease,” and Velma Von Tussle in “Hairspray” regionally, to name a few. I then went on to tour the world with a cabaret show opening for legends such as Nell Carter and Neil Sedaka, and it has been a fantastic journey so far! Throughout my career, I have had the opportunity to sing most genres of music from gospel to pop and have a passion for encouraging students in their talents, singing the styles of music they love! I believe we are all so

Great instructor

Gerri is a great teacher as she brings out the best efforts in our daughter (who often approaches new ideas/people/activities with trepidation). She helps our daughter understand her lessons in a very clear and absorbable fashion. We highly recommend her.

Meagan W. North Hollywood, CA

I've graduated with a BFA degree in Dance so my knowledge of technique and teaching it properly is extensive. It's important to address the basics no matter what the level of dancer because it is the root and base of more complex techniques. If the root isn't perfected the growth won't occur. My goals would change depending on the personal goals of the student. It's my goal that each student is able to grow in a comfortable, judgement free atmosphere and embrace true confidence!

I'm from Dallas, Texas and attended Booker T. Washington High School for the Performing and Visual Arts where I discovered my love for choreography. Since moving to Los Angles, I have been apart of Muse Dance, The Narrative and FBK companies. I also became a RAWartisit and qualified as a semifinalists for my choreography. I'm happy to work with dancers of all levels especially if they have the passion and willingness to grow. I'm willing to set choreography for solos ( at a different price) for competition or recital seasons. My privates are dirtied specifically to the dancers needs. Improv growth? Flexibility training? ...

Amanda M. Canoga Park, CA

I have danced my entire life and have been teaching on and off for 15 years. I will assess your level at our first meeting and set a class at that level. As you grow and become stronger I will adjust and increase the level of strengths and technique. We can perfect lead role choreography and audition routines. I enjoy inspiring a love for dance and watching all the hard work and dedication transform a child/adult into the dancer they want to be.

About Amanda

Growing up I was a member of the elite ballet training program at Westside Academy of Dance. This rigorous program consisted of 2 classes a day, M-F, and all day classes Saturday. I attended the Joffrey School of Ballet summer intensive programs in New York. As a professional I was a soloist with Aeolian Ballet Theater and Dance Electric. At MarVista Recreation I taught a variety of dance classes, such as Ballroom, and jazz hip hop ages 10 - adult. I specialize in intermediate and advanced level ballerinas looking to fine tune their skills for auditions and perfecting lead roles. However, teaching and inspiring young children has been newly found passion of mine. I enjoy watching the development of their skills reached by practice, patience and commitment.
