Private Dance Teacher

A professional dancer myself, I strive to bring my experience and expertise into each lesson. We will begin with a physical warm up, followed by floor work and some choreography. Each lesson is crafted specifically with the student's unique goals in mind. I believe the best learning environment is a positive and supportive one, and I strive to truly help my students understand dance technique, while having a good time.

Emily's background in musical theater is perfect for teaching our 10-year-old daughter! We signed her up for jazz to help her with choreography. We love that Emily teaches routines with Broadway music. She has also been very responsive by email, and Emily tailored our lessons to best fit our daughter.
Claudia
Emily is a wonderful yoga teacher and I look forward to every class! She is motivating, kind, patient and fun!

We did not have the best experience with Emily and Take Lessons. When first inquiring about acting lessons for my daughter as a Christmas present, I was told by Emily I could purchase single acting lessons. I found out this was not the case. Because of the confusion, they allowed me to purchase just 2 to start with. The first lesson was fine. The second lesson, we got a couple reminder emails with a link to join the lesson, which is great, however after being signed in 10 minutes early and then it got to be 15 mins after the lesson was supposed to start and it hasn't, I emailed Emily and I was told I wasn't supposed to click on the link in the reminder email. I was supposed to join a Google meet, which I never received an invite for. The lesson was canceled, so we wouldn't get charged per Emily, however, our credit card was charged a fee that same day. The lesson was rescheduled as it was already paid for. At the beginning of the lesson I mentioned I would like to purchase more lessons for my daughter and inquired about lesson times outside of school hours. She said she would check her availability and get back to me. The next day all I got was an email saying good luck to you, I am not able to find a time for your daughter. Not accommodating at all.

Riverdance! Lord of the Dance!...Have you ever wanted to learn how to Irish dance but couldn't find lessons near you or maybe felt intimidated to dance in front of others while you're learning?...Maybe finding the time in your busy schedule has been challenging?...I can help! : )

Lauren is THE BEST and I am so grateful I found such a gem of a dance teacher. I am a professional dancer in Los Angeles who had only taken a few Irish dance classes before I started working with Lauren online in April. With her help, I have learned SO much in only 4 months, and recently passed the first 6 Irish grade exams. She is so patient, encouraging, fun, and her online learning portal and videos are immensely helpful for learning virtually. I could not recommend her enough!
Elizabeth and John Le
Lauren is terrific. Our daughter absolutely enjoys her classes.

I'm an absolute beginner dancer and KatieRose has been a fabulous instructor for me. She's patient, fun, exacting, motivating, and she has the most gorgeous arms ever! She was choreographer on a show I did and I've made sure to stay in touch. She's also a fabulous human and a joy to be around. Highly recommended.

Online Dance Teacher

I am a classically trained dancer with 20 years experience in performance. I have always been passionate about historic costumes and was introduced to historic dance while getting my degree from Ga. State University. I am currently the director of the Atlanta Historic Dance Company. I've performed, taught and choreographed for performances on stage, at historic events and in the film industry for the last 10 years.
Historic Dance can run the gamut between beginning level dances up to professional level performance. I can tailor your lesson to fit your needs. The most popular lesson at the moment is the 1920's Charleston. I can also offer lessons in popular social dances from the Renaissance up through the 1960's.

Hola!

If you are looking to learn Salsa, Merengue, or Bachata--You have come to the right place!

As you work with me you will become more and more comfortable dancing so that you are ready for the fiesta!

I began my dance studies in Puerto Rico with traditional Bomba Y Plena. Currently, I teach latin dance with several NYC based companies.

About Ra

Hola! My name is Ra. I am a dancer, poet, and educator. I specialize in teaching conversational Spanish and Dance (Salsa, Merengue, Bachata, Flamenco). I am a native Spanish speaker. Originally from Puerto Rico, I grew up between PR and New York City. I graduated from The New School University

Ra is so great. She is patient and really knows her stuff. Definitely flexible in scheduling and she is so great with teaching my daughter.
Arianna L.
I elected to choose an online Spanish teacher for my daughter Arianna who is nine years old - after unsuccessful locating a local Spanish speaking class/teacher. Haven't had any experience with online teachers, I asked Take Lessons to recommend a Spanish native speaker from Puerto Rico. I needed to find someone who understands and is very familiar with the pronunciation of the Latin dialect. Ra's focus is conversational language; however, she was more than willing to take on the challenge of starting from the beginning with the basics, such as the alphabet, number, months, etc. and building into conversational sentences with Arianna. She is extremely easy to interact with, soft-spoken, and processes a genuine love of teaching. My daughter looks forward to their weekly meetings while embracing her Latin roots. We are immensely pleased with Ra. We would highly recommend her without reservation. Sincerely, The Lopez Family
Luke
Ra is great!
