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 ...

About Jonathan

If you really want to learn HipHop then you should learn from someone who has not only taught the styles but also understands the Culture. I've traveled the country and the world competing, training and working with some of the best dancers in HipHop. I love to dance but the only thing i love more

Nino choreographed and taught my 14-year-young son a hiphop dance to accompany a vocal performance. The performance hasn't happened yet (coming up in Feb 2020), but without a doubt, Nino has been the best, most creative, attentive, patient, and caring dance instructor. Highly, highly recommend!!
Jake
JB / Nino is one of those truly rare instructors that merges personal fitness with the credibility from being part of an elite dance crew and the professionalism and skills required to be an AMAZING teacher and motivator. His knowledge of all dance genres is beyond impressive and he is able to relate to people of all levels and ages - including myself a busy 40 year old / father of 2 who is known as the “dancer” within my professional and social circles.
Brigit
Nino teaches my 14-year-old daughter Paloma hip hop and break, and was amazing! He is thorough, making sure she understands the choreography, step by step. He is super patient, giving her the time she needs to absorb the moves. He builds confidence and inspires Paloma to get better and better at dancing. And he’s a lot of fun! Nino inspired Paloma so much that she’s now preparing to audition for an arts high school! And this with very little formal training beforehand. Thank you so much Nino!

It was my daughter's first contact with professional acting.
She has been talking about being an actress for quite a while now, so we decided to let her take a few lessons to see if she likes it.
Ollie was really comprehensive of our needs and made us see the big picture of that world... just what we needed, to start walking into that direction on the right path.
My daughter had a wonderful time with Ollie.
Kristyl N.
I booked 4 acting sessions with Ms. Ollie for my daughter. Ms. Ollie did a phenomenal job starting from scratch, coaching my daughter for her up coming audition. My daughter had no acting experience, she was shy, and soft spoken but in just 4 short days, Ms. Ollie turned her into a confident, outspoken young actress. My daughter nailed her audition thanks to Ollie!! I will highly recommend her as your acting coach.

Great person to work with! Cheerful. Listens to what you have to say. Ready to help you improve.

My two children have been taking reading and writing lessons from Teacher Rico for over two years now. My husband and I have been very pleased with the results, the kids being among the top of their class, being published in their school newspapers, a few awards in writing contests.
