I have been dancing since the age of five and received most of my training in Washington, D.C. I have received my Bachelors of Arts degree in Dance.

My services include: private dance classes and choreography for schools, churches, weddings, parties, special events, corporate events, flash mobs etc..
Dance classes through CLC Dance are engaging and individualized for each student. I assess my student's abilities, and cater the dance class to their level and preferences. I push my students to be their best, and engage them through movement and choreography. I choreographed and taught full length musicals, first dances for weddings, bridal party dances, recitals, and much more.
My goals are for my student's to have fun, and develop basic, intermediate, and advanced dance technique, in the styles of Jazz, Hip Hop, Modern, and Musical Theater. All classes are individualized based upon the student's abilities, and interests.

It was a real pleasure to do a Month long bachata classes with Kimmy. It was a worthwhile time investment. Kimmy is very passionate about dancing and teaching. I am grateful for the new dance skills and confidence she helped me gain!

I'm not naturally coordinated in dancing much less for paired dancing, for that reason I was apprehensive and anxious about bachata dance lessons with kimmy. At the end of the first lesson I left feeling having learnt new moves and confident about using them. Kimmy is skilled and knowledgeable about teaching dance because the pace is not rushed, she provides appropriate cues and thoughtful commendations!

I highly recommend Kimmy! She is a great teacher; she was patient, understanding, and comes prepared. I completed my first dance sessions with Kimmy and came out with a better understanding of how to dance. She instills confidence with her teaching and cares that her student gets the most out of every class.

I am a professional Dancer and Choreographer. I graduated from the University of Alabama with a Bachelors in Kinesiology.
Dance students can expect to improve week to week in their Dance technique. Every dance has a unique rhythm; I teach students to release built up tension and apply foundational techniques in order to unlock their own individual style. I can help any student to dance with freedom, confidence, and expression.
I teach students of all different ages and experience levels. I studied hip hop dance for 11 years. I can teach students to learn their bodies natural flow and to also improve their balance.
As a professional dancer I frequently take trips to New York for video shoots, recording artist, and meeting with other dancers for group dance projects. I have dance for Nike the last two years which as been an amazing exper
ience which also taught me so much and makes me appreciate what I do even more. I love to mentor students who want to become effective, dynamic dancers and reach their full potential to take their dancing to the next level.
My personal passion is dance but I firmly believe that great technique is essential to any and every style. I look forward to meeting you and helping you to become a better dancer!

Deja had her first lesson with my daughter today. Deja was great. Right on time; worked with my daughter literally through the last minute of her lesson. I could hear Deja giving direction and instruction, and she was very encouraging and supportive. My daughter really liked her, and is excited about the process. (whew!). Great job!

I learned from Deja! 10 out of 10! She helped me become sharp in some movements and more feminine in others, the perfect blend! I witnessed her work with children too, she is great with people of all ages! Even when she couldn't do them all, she still helped me learn how to land my tricks! I love her! Thank you Deja!

I took a lesson with Tom. I really wanted to try him out because of all the great reviews he has, it definitely didn't fall short of my expectations. He was attentive, friendly, not judgelmental and a master of his craft. Thank you for all your tips.

It came to me again - that feeling that I could do anything. I know that's an exaggeration, but feelings of personal accomplishment lend a lot to taking future risks. Our dance team was under Tom's tutelage for four hours broken into two sessions and I was changed. He had persistence yet patience. He somehow gave everything enough attention, but kept us moving forward to use our time together the most wisely. He adapted to our unique and unusual dynamic and group personality, adopting our language while he taught us his.
My private lesson with him was special too. I remember feeling a bit vulnerable and self conscious in the first few minutes, wondering how we would connect on how to help me. I was put at ease as he listened to my thoughts, partnered with me in a quick exploratory dance, took the reins, and led me through an educational sixty minutes. I liked the way he made the specifics he was conveying accessible through brief relatable personal examples. I've had many people speak to me about frame, but the way he approached it and me was the way that has me doing better (I think!) I found Tom to be incredibly professional, personable, respectful and helpful.
I would certainly benefit from more time in his care.

Tom has a way of teaching that is easily understandable and make sense almost right away all the time. And this is awesome because I have no dance experience. He is just an all-around nice guy that is fun and knows what to say so that the lesson clicks for you he knows how to make you get it.
Experienced teacher of 7 years specialized in beginner, intermediate and advanced dance training. Dance lessons with me would be impactful. With the gift of dancing that I exhibits not only with performing but also to inspire others to pursue their dreams is what I hopes my students gain from each lesson. I continue to inspire the youth to go after their dreams no matter what occupation it may be. A quote that I advocate wholeheartedly is “To never get discouraged but encourage others to find something that they are passionate about and go for it”.

I have earned my degree in Dance Performance by studying Ballet, Modern, Tap, Jazz, Choreography, etc. As a person who has been insecure about my body, I was able to accomplish believing in myself and working on my creativity. I want to spread confidence to those who believe in themselves and want to grow through dance as a career or even if it is just for fun.
Hello! I’m Ronesha Butler and I just graduated from the University of Arkansas at Little Rock with my Bachelor’s of Fine Arts Degree in Dance Performance. (Spring 2019). I also just got back from a month trip in Tuscany, Italy dancing at the Accademia dell’Arte! I love dancing ballet, modern, contemporary, lyrical, jazz, majorette, praise dance, and some hip-hop.

"He is sure to make the experience helpful and fun. He made me feel at ease and he was super patient and encouraging."
"My friends and I hired Kenneth to choreograph a surprise 90's hip hop routine for a friend's wedding. When we first met him, he was very welcoming and ene
rgetic. Which made us beginners feel at ease. He incorporated the type of music and moves we wanted. He mixed the music and also made sure the choreography was in sync with the music. He's very patient and made sure we got the routine before moving onto the next steps. The fact there were 3 of us he had to teach, he was willing to work with each of our schedules. I *highly* recommend Kenneth as a choreographer. He has lots of passion for what he does and you can tell by the way he dances. We love our routine and we hope to make Kenneth proud when we finally dance at the wedding. Thank you for your patience in teaching us."
"He's a quite incredible instructor. He helped me come out of my shell and to dance 200% even when it was just practice. Kenneth truly helped me go beyond
my boundaries in order for me to expand my techniques"
