Dan is a wonderful piano teacher. We are so grateful that he is teaching our 7 year old daughter. After 4 month she is already playing a couple of songs. She feels encouraged to practice and has always a fun time with Dan.
We give the highest ratings and our best recommendations.

Dan arrived 15 minutes early - good sign for the 1st practice !
Matisse (8yrs old) says "he is super good because he explains the notes in a way that I will remember".
I thought Piano lesson would be a drag for Matisse but he is really excited :) Happy Mom !!!

Between my 8 years of latin ballroom experience and training in bellydance, ballet, hip hop, gymnastics, and aerial arts, I bring a fusion of different dance background to each lesson.

I have been mentored by national and international ballroom champions, and have been teaching dance for 4 years. All ages welcome. If your looking for a social way to stay fit, or just want to learn a new skill, you've come to the right place.

About Sasha
Hey, Sasha speaking! I would be thrilled to share my passion for dance with you. I am trained in various styles including ballroom, ballet, bellydance, hip hop and aerial arts (aerial silk, hoop and pole). I have been teaching different subjects for 6 years with a focus in instructing ballroom for the last 4 years. I believe dance is a healing and liberating art and would love to help you find your flow. Not only is dance fun, but it will come in handy at parties and events, and is a great way to socialize. I am experienced with both kids ages 4 and up as well as adults, so please feel free to contact me, and we can begin an awesome journey.

I am now offering online group classes in various subjects as well. Subjects include Zumba, Bellydance, and Hip hop with more coming soon. Classes run weekday mornings and some weekends.

Lucinda was on time, very friendly, and happy to get right to the lesson after getting a little background I do. She made some suggestions for attire, stretches, warm-ups, etc. We can't wait to see her again!

I am a former pro ballet dancer and I have a degree from Royal Academy of Dancing, London. I can teach you both the basics and fully polish your technique and also can help with interpretation for repertoire

About Elena
I do believe that a class is first of all two people meeting to learn from each other (yes, you learn a lot as a teacher as well). I believe in dreams and I believe in working hard to achieve goals to make dreams come true, so I would be really happy to help you achieve yours. I believe that life is amazing and is generous and always gives us chances if we have an open heart. I believe in honesty and friendship and I believe that we could get along really well. I care for you and I am looking forward to meeting you and starting our journey :)

I had this very short deadline on a track that I was working on, and I was a bit stressed because I, at that moment, didn't have enough knowledge about audio editing and mixing vocals in Logic. I got Elena recommended by a friend and I'm really glad for that. I got the help I needed and she also inspired me to continue learning (and now I'm certified in Logic Pro X as well!! =) )

I'm not the quickest to learn new things (I need detailed explanations), but Elena showed patience and great skills in explaining things in a very easy way.

- I'd like to give my warmest recommendations!

I started approaching Logic Pro thanks to Elena because I needed some basics for my job. She is a great teacher: she is able to make everything seem simple and immediate. Can't wait to have further lessons in the future!

I have taken classical ballet since age 4, been on various ballet companies, and now still take class myself as I pursue my dreams of Broadway. I would love to teach you and help you discover the beautiful art that lies within dancing.

About Lily
New York is a HELLUVA town. And as I dance and sing my way around the city, I would love to impart my knowledge and experience to you too!

I've been dancing for nearly 20 years, singing for nearly 15, and have lots of experience taking those talents out into the real world. If you're looking for training in the DANCE world (ballet, jazz, tap, hip hop, contemporary, theatre) or the VOCAL world (musical theatre, classical, pop/rock, or jazz) -- I'm the girl for you. I am spitfire, and a smart coach who simply loves to teach. Let's have some serious fun together, shall we?

I am a teacher of twelve years and I love what I do!

My ballet lessons consist of basic positions, technique, and placement. We will work on strength, conditioning, and flexibility- and with those- will come coordination and confidence. Ballet is a great workout in addition to being the foundation for technical dance. It's a great place to start and always to come back to.

My main goal is that my students have fun in addition to benefitting from our lesson. All my classes are personalized to suit my students' goals, progression, and timeline.

About Jordan
Nice to meet you!

I am a teacher of twelve years and I love what I do! I enjoy helping my students reach their goals while having fun along the way. My favorite part about teaching is watching my students improve in ability and, more importantly, confidence, and knowing that I was able to be a helpful part of their process.

I am a versatile teacher with experience in many areas of dance, fitness, theater, character, circus, and more. I've taught all ages and levels, so anyone is welcome -especially beginners!

I am a dancer, performer, choreographer, teacher, model, and actor, so I am very familiar with the industry. I have choreographed, taught, and performed around the world, and enjoy sharing my knowledge with those who want to learn, get some good exercise, and have a good time.

I teach the following subjects:
-jazz dance
-hip hop/urban dance
-contemporary dance
-strength & conditioning
-stretching and flexibility
-dance fitness
-ballet dance
-burlesque dance
-musical theater dance
-modeling
-choreography

I am outgoing, friendly, and most importantly, I love what I do and I am passionate about sharing my experience with others who are eager to learn!
