We just had our first lesson with Ana. She got on great with our kids, and seems really to know what she's doing.
Tucker
Ana is just a really great teacher. First, she’s a really nice person. She’s also highly competent, patient, flexible, and obviously a wonderful dancer herself. She makes things fun, and yet still teaches in a classical way, which is great. Yay Ana!

Junior C.

With my Dance Choreography lessons, we will focus on building awareness of the body, understanding musicality, style/swag and control. Although we will work on choreo retention (picking up and remembering steps), the main focus of each lesson will be on movement quality: speed variation, attention to detail and execution of the texture(s) of each movement. Lastly, in my lessons, we will learn how to FEEL and CONNECT to the artist/music. I believe that if you feel good, you'll look good!

Not convince? Book a 30min session with me for Free and I'll prove that you can become awesome dancer, while having a great time!

Vocal problems can manifest in the most experienced of singers or even speakers. I can help with public speaking, speaking for long periods of time, or vocal health problems (nodes, nodules, etc.).

About Laura

Music is the universal language, and there isn't a genre I don't love; it's important to me that that aspect be brought to lessons, as well! From humble New Jersey beginnings to an opera career, I've seen the power of what music can do! Whether it's opera, musical theater, folk, rock, or just pu

I have been teaching and coaching actors for over 20 years. My students work professionally on stage, TV and film. Within the first few lessons, you will understand how to create a character. Soon, you will have the skills to book a role. I specialize in method acting, but draw upon my experience at The Second City (improvisation) in Chicago and other training I have had. I love working with students of all ages and experience levels; I can't wait to meet you!

Jeremy has gone above and beyond to get to know who my son is as a person in order to direct his instruction. Jeremy took the time to research my son's potential high school so as to prepare for the interview and audition process. Most importantly Jeremy has approached his lessons as an opportunity for my son to explore what creative talents he may have as well as giving him a chance to do the things he enjoys most. AND Jeremy gives parents feedback! Real, honest, actionable feedback. I have been very impressed.
Vina Chalice
Great creative writing intro class if you're curious to character development and comedy! Great explanation/examples, encouraging, and includes practical exercises you can use immediately. Thanks Jeremy.

I took some tap dancing lessons with Miri. She is very organized, experienced and encouraging. She made two dancing easy and fun. She even took video for the steps we learn in the class, so I can review after the lessons. She is patient and explains things very well. I highly recommend her for anyone who wants to learn how to tap dance

Miri is super nice and enthusiastic! I am a super new beginner, so it was comforting to have someone so willing to teach and encourage me to become a better and more confident dancer!

Our voice is one of many ways to communicate, it is a gift and an amazing gift at that. Our voice can be used to communicate, interact, teach, tell a story, display how we feel, transport people’s hearts to another place or time; to name a few.
Being able to use your voice is one thing but to also be able to perform and have your audience receive you well takes skills and training. I will help you engage with your audience while you display your art through your voice.

She is a fun challenging and talented coach!

Ms. Chau has been an excellent teacher to me. As a student who grew up playing guitar, I felt that singing was a true challenge for me because of how unique it is for each individual but Chau helped me overcome the first hurdles to make me a better singer. She explains concepts really well and takes time to help me understand each concept and technique while also making sure to amplify my strengths. She is also very understanding and personable, like a close friend. I highly recommend her if you want to take your singing to the next level.
Ava
I’ve been working with mrs Kim, since the beginning of summer!! I always sang in the shower or just too sing I felt like I had a future with it if I continued and took lessons so I decided too ask my mom and she signed me up with mrs Kim! It’s only been a few months since I’ve been working with her in my voice and I’ve improved so much since IMY first lesson! She’s help gotten me too we’re I am right now. Mrs Kim is such an amazing teacher. She’s is very honest and open with things you need help or need to work on. She’s also a very good singer and has amazing taste in music ! But she’s really helped me find my voice, find out if I wanna continue doing music. She’s helped a lot with my voice and overall just finding my melodys a little better because rim a dancer so I pick up melodys pretty easily but sometimes I need help with finding the exact melody and really helps. Overall I’ve loved working mrs Kim and I want to continue working with mrs kim!!
