Tanya has a special gift for teaching dance. She really understands all of the elements that go into a properly executed dance move, and more importantly, she really knows how to explain those elements in an approachable manner. I will definitely be purchasing additional lessons with Tanya.

Lindsay B.

Sherman Oaks, CA

My goals are to work on their coordination and flexibility along with proper ballet technique. All classes will be tailored to each student accordingly.

About Lindsay

Hey there! I have always had a passion for exercise; definitely a fitness enthusiast. 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. Nowadays I love yoga, hiking, running, art, and being a big sister! I look forward to meeting you and reaching the finish line- whatever that may be!

Desiree S.

North Hollywood, CA

Enjoy classes that stem from Ballet, Modern Contemporary, Lyrical, and/or Jazz. We can create a fusion class or we can focus on a specific technique: your pick.

About Desiree

I am most happy when I am creating. Dance is my first choice of escape! Working and performing with dance companies, teaching dance classes, and directing screendance projects is my primary focus. Screendance is a way for me to express my creative eye through photography, dance, design, choreography, film, performance, and editing in one craft. The purpose of my work in both choreography and screendance is to compose fresh representations of beauty and strength through linear forms and unique shapes in modern and eclectic dance styles.

Desiree is a great dance teacher. I am a beginner student with little dance experience and she has made it easy for me to learn to dance. She is very patient and good at explaining and breaking down the dance moves to make them easier to learn. She is also a great dancer so she is able to show you how the moves should look when they are done right. I have learned alot and look forward to taking more classes.

I just started taking lessons with Jose, he is an excellent teacher, his knowledge and talent for ballet are very impressive. I haven't taken dance since I was a kid (I am in my late 30's). I wanted to take ballet again because it is something I always regretted quitting. However, I was never really a dancer and feel like I have two left feet. Jose is very patient and also creates a very comfortable environment for me because I am also shy. Whether you are a complete beginner like me or an advanced dancer, I highly recommend Jose!

Jose is so knowledgable, experienced and passionate about ballet and teaching it. He really wants the best for his students and to pass on everything he has learnt over the years and this really comes through in his teaching. You feel immediately comfortable with him and he really gets the best out of every student. He makes ballet so easy to understand and I saw a massive improvement so quickly in everyones technique. Great ballet teachers who understand correct technique and save students from injury are hard to find especially on the West coast so Jose is definitely the one to hire.

4 Fundamental Tap Dance Steps for Beginners
Good dancers can make even the most complicated, strenuous techniques look effortless and fluid. If you've ever watched an experienced dancer perform a tap routine, you probably watched in disbelief as their feet turned into a blur of movement that seemed to move independently from the rest of their body. Sometimes the sound effects are even more impressive; when done well, tap dance is a musical art form that creates its own rhythm. Do you want to train your own feet to create this unique mixt
