*** Lesson Details ***
Each lesson is based on the students skill level and goals in which the student is trying to achieve, rather it be training, preparation for an up coming audition or event. Below is a structured outline of what to expect in class.

Warm up- Stretch/ exercise
during this warm up there will be a specific muscle focus that we will concentrate on and will be different each lesson. This is the time to get your energy and stamina up to prepare for the lesson of the day.

Home work- If the lesson is preparation for an audition during this time we will discuss and strategize the basic skills needed to accomplish during the audition and or put together a skilled piece if needed as well. Also during this time we will recap what we went over during our last meeting to ensure that the choreography is being obtained as well as goals are being met with the progression of skill.

Combination- During this time we will work on a new combination in extension to a piece already in progress and thoroughly focus on execution of each move.

Cool down- Similar to the warm up/ stretch

Recap- Myself and the student will review class, what needs to be worked on at home, schedule and any other questions that may need to be answered.

Debbie K.

Burbank, CA

I am a dance choreographer and would love to choreograph something original and unique for you. I have over 20 years of dance experience from ballet to tap to contemporary and hip hop. I believe that the best dancing happens when heart meets body. So we will work on connecting to the piece as well as technique.

About Debbie

Tutoring has been a major part of my life for over 7 years and I love it. Seeing the excitement in a student's eyes when they finally get something they've struggled with is why I do what I do. My strength is in getting to know the way a student learns best and finding techniques that support that style and help the student grow.

I have experience working with mild autism and have multiple references if interested.

About Lindsay

Hey there! I have a background in dance and have always been drawn to an active lifestyle. I love kids and have been working as a nanny professionally for 4 years. Putting two of my favorite things together (dance+kids) I thought what's better than being a dance teacher?!
I grew up dancing at Mark Spivaks Institute in Jacksonville, Florida. Where I had aspirations of becoming a ballerina. I took every dance genre from jazz to character to pointe. I love yoga, hiking, art, and being a big sister! I look forward to meeting you and your kids.
