This was a really unfortunate and wasted experience. Raycurt was wildly unprepared to teach. He brought a broken metronome and almost no sheet music/lesson plan. I had spoken both to the sales rep and Raycurt himself prior to the lesson and he was still fully unprepared.

I also explained my level of experience and was assured Raycurt was qualified to teach at the level I needed, but he came off as less knowledgable than me, which was particularly disappointing.

Worst of all, after multiple hours of speaking on the phone, I couldn't get my money back for this lesson.

I'd strongly recommend not using takelessons at all, they've put a horrible taste in my mouth for their entire service.

I love to teach! I love to share this amazing means of expression with whoever wants to learn and respect it. It doesn't matter what level you're at, we all have to start somewhere and we can always get better. If you are looking for Choreo, HH Fitness or just to get started I'm definitely your guy. Ask as many questions as you like. Ive been teaching for over 15 years. All ages from 7-70.

A little about me. I started dancing in 2003. I connected with dancers from the DMV which led me to Breakdance practices at College Park, UMBC, JHU and more. As I got better and more skilled local crews began to take notice. I was inducted into The Deadly Venoms Crew "DVC" in 2010. The entire time training as a BBoy i was also learning and picking up other HH styles such as House, Krump and Popping. One was just not enough for me. In 2011 I competed in numerous All-Styles and Top Rock battles Nationally. In 2013 I was a showcase street performer in the production “Working America” and later that

He’s the best! We’ve had so much fun dancing with him practicing for my upcoming wedding! He’s so upbeat and positive, and patient! We had a blast and will be booking classes with him again! My dad and I both recommend him 100%!

Hi my name is Martha Ingram and I’m looking for someone to help me with lessons so that I could come up with routines for my dance team. If you think you could help me, you might be the perfect guy.

Nino is AMAZING! He did just the right mix of teaching, watching, coaching and listening and had my little guy (age 8) excited to practice and he "can't wait" for his next lesson! This wasn't our first try finding a hip hop teacher who was a good fit, but we're so glad to have found Nino!! He knows his stuff!

Great experience!

Voice lessons are tough. This isn't like a golf swing where someone can show you physically what to do or reach out and position your elbows where they need to be.

This all has to be articulated by a teacher, and is has to be articulated to someone (YOU) who doesn't even know what parts you're trying to move around.

It takes a great teacher. Eulis is a GREAT teacher. He gave me physical descriptions, character descriptions, accent descriptions, … everything I needed to position everything where it needed to be, even when I didn't always know where it was.

A lot of progress and a lot of fun. Thank you, Eulis.
William R.
Eulis was great and provided plenty of insight. Nice guy and he showed me interesting techniques

Eulis has been phenomenal to work with. He's patient, and has worked really hard to understand distinct qualities of my voice and how to improve them.

I not only am seen as a teacher, but as a mentor as well. The one-on-one relationship that is built between my students and I is priority. I want my students to know that it is 100% okay to try something new and play with it, therefore, I provide a safe and encouraging environment.

It is important to me that my students get the most out of their training. I am a trained and working actor with a BFA in acting for both stage and screen. So whichever you are looking to train in, I can coach you in one or both areas.

Experience: I have directed and stage managed plays and musicals, have had previous experience teaching acting classes, and have been a camp counselor for youth acting camps.

I promise we will have a fun time while working hard!

My daughter took lessons from her a while back. She was simply wonderful. My daughter could not stop talking about how much fun she had working with Jace. She knows lots about who to go to for headshots and how to build a resume as well. I’m so grateful she was able to help my daughter pursue what she loves.
Clara
Having graduated in rigorous BFA acting for stage and screen program , and working in Los Angeles as an actor Jace has a wealth of knowledge about acting as well as the film industry. With her being a working actor she offered me so much insight about what you need to do for an audition as well as how to tweak my monologue to give it more layers. She goes with you step by step and makes you feel confident and safe. She works with you at your level and she made me feel confident going into my audition and self tapes. Seriously, she is so great!

"Adam is really super (I am only on my third lesson). He will make you feel comfortable and interact with you in a personable and dynamic way.

He is the perfect teacher if you want to improve your stage voice and pitch. Adam is the man if you have fame on your mind. Julia

If you are a little slow on the uptake, (like I am when I don't know the subject matter) you need to be brave and follow his directions in practicing techniques. Adam personalizes his lessons, but they could be more planned. They feel a little too unprepared."
