About Ashley

#iLiveForDance. It's a way to lose yourself and find yourself at the same time. Each and every one of us has what it takes to succeed. Dance inspires a connection with the dancers inner self to access their creativity and bring happiness and positive energy into their lives. Dance is deeply personal. I emphasize primarily on the importance of having a healthy body image and lifestyle, coupled with learning discipline, perseverance and self-awareness. DANCE IS A SOURCE OF CREATIVITY AND AN EMPOWERING FORM OF SELF EXPRESSION. By harmonizing body, mind, and spirit young women can affirm who they were created to be!

Mary D. San Pedro, CA

Teach what YOU want to learn. Focus on your weakness and improve it. Outline your strengths and highlight them. To teach at my home studio be alert I have a cat and a dog - so allergies are considered. Also must be able to walk up stairs to my apt. Very nice area and free curbside parking.

Great teacher of all things!

I'm taking piano/voice privately from Mary. I wanted to learn opera and then she showed me how important music theory is to work on your voice. I'm in my mid 40s and thought I never could learn all this complicated stuff- but Mary makes it so fun and easy and motivates me. I and my friend took ballroom dancing from her too. She has great prices and spends alot of overtime . Very generous and experienced!

My 15 yr old son has taken Algebra and now AP exam prep tutoring from Mary. Trey has some learning disabilities and Mary does so great with teaching him the math formulas and how they can be used in every day life so then he memorizes them alot better.

Madia is by far the very best dance instructor you could find! I have decided to hire her to teach my daughter online since we live in such a rural area. She did such an amazing job! She gave great feedback and was firm with my daughter while still being fun to work with. I would work with her again!
