Private Dance Teacher

I’m available to teach private lessons for teens and adults interested in learning to do tap or ballet for the first time, or who want to improve their skills. My strengths are patience, enthusiasm, and an unusual way of approaching dance. I’m not famous or particularly interested in becoming famous, so if that’s your goal, I’m not the right teacher for you. I strongly believe everyone can dance, and should. All bodies can learn to dance and enjoy themselves. Dance should be joyful, about self-expression, and a way of learning about your body and your spirit. Finally, I believe it’s never too late to start learning something new, and your bucket list should not wait until you retire.

About Kristen

I started dance later in life -- tap at 19 and ballet at 31 -- because I was so tall and awkward as a child. It never occurred to me that people my size could be dancers. I fell in love with dance as an escape from a stressful job teaching high school history. I saw such changes in myself the more I

More than incredible first experience, no question I will return and invest more time with her. She is extremely warm, personable and really knows her stuff. So happy to have found her!

Kristen is a human that makes her students feel immediately at ease. She is kind, quirky, and hilarious, but more importantly, she is patient and meets students where they are to ultimately fulfill their potential and their goals. I first started taking tap classes from Kristen a few years ago as a nervous adult (25 yo) seeking a bare bones beginner tap class. Since then, having incorporated exercises, games, and routines to awesome music, I have come leaps and bounds, built up my courage and confidence, and am proud to officially feel part of the tap community. If you’re looking for an excellent teacher, regardless of experience level, look no further!

Ellen has taught Jazz for my 11-year-old daughter, who says, "She pushed me hard and I've become a better dancer."

Ellen was wonderful to work with! She really made the attendees for our virtual conference comfortable enough to be on camera. Our attendees had a blast and the class was a wonderful way to unwind and have fun after a long day of zoom meetings. I would highly recommend working with Ellen.

When I purchased a series of lessons for my partner and me, I really didn't know what to expect, beyond the forced focus on steps and postures drilled into me as a boy in cotillion. What we experienced was an accomplished professional, who helped us understand what dancing and moving together really means. Ellen is a giving, forgiving, funny, and intuitive teacher. We opened each lesson with exercises to simply bring ourselves into our bodies. Ellen taught us about beat and provided us choreography to practice, but more she helped us to realize that dancing together and responding to each other's movements and energy allows us to enjoy and even look good on the dance floor. Ellen gave us an awareness as much as a structure. We looked forward to every lesson and will return to her as we evolve. She is a master of what she does and knows and is generous and joyous in sharing.

Steven is the best! He's a great (and really fun) teacher. Our beginner swing-dance lessons were excellent -- highly recommended.
Katherine & Karl H.
Steven was very patient with us. Although we are in our 60’s it was our first dance lesson. So fun!! Looking forward to next week for sure. In the meantime I might need some steel toed shoes. Lol!
Gregory T.
Steven was just awesome! He's so positive and fun. He's super patient, and his way of teaching is very clear. He follows the pace my wife and I wanted, and tailored what we learned to what we liked. We didn't know what we would like, but he helped us figure that out too! I highly recommend Steven.

Private Dance Teacher

A professional dancer myself, I strive to bring my experience and expertise into each lesson. We will begin with a physical warm up, followed by floor work and some choreography. Each lesson is crafted specifically with the student's unique goals in mind. I believe the best learning environment is a positive and supportive one, and I strive to truly help my students understand dance technique, while having a good time.

Would not hesitate to recommend Emily.

Emily's background in musical theater is perfect for teaching our 10-year-old daughter! We signed her up for jazz to help her with choreography. We love that Emily teaches routines with Broadway music. She has also been very responsive by email, and Emily tailored our lessons to best fit our daughter.

Sableen is a great meditation instructor. Wow I cant begin to describe how much I am learning from her every week we are working together. She is very patient and very relaxed with you, she is very humorous and funny. I always look forward to working with her every week. Her teachings are so inspirational and she makes you see things with meditation that you probably have never seen or experienced before, she believes in helping her students and helping them reach their meditation goals, by tailoring a practice just for the student and their specific goals that they would like to work on during the meditation time. I would totally recommend Sableen for your meditation Practices.

The best part of teaching is when the student has that "Eureka!" moment: feeling the enjoyment of dancing, having confidence and control coupled with the ability to let go and create. I teach students to understand the foundations of movement, how to master the basics and connect into the complex. The how, the why and the what and how each dancer relates are imperative. I believe dance can be accessible to everyone. I believe my job is to help you fill your tool box.

"My 12 year old son thoroughly enjoys dancing with Ms. Ashley! He has taken her Musical Theater, Jumps and Turns, and Tap classes online. She has taken special effort to get to know my son and help him hone in on strengths, diagnose specific issues and improve those weaknesses. I have seen improvements in the quality of his movement and haven’t seen him dance this well before. As an added bonus, he comes away from each lesson knowing more about the history of each different type of dance along with a deeper understanding of the purpose behind each movement. Ms. Ashley has a special ability to make the dance “click” by providing a brain/body pathway connection that has helped my son learn many new things easily and quickly. Her choreography is so much fun and fresh and tailored to perfectly fit my son’s specific goals. Ms. Ashley brings so much energy and knowledge to each lesson! My son couldn’t be happier!"

He makes it possible for anybody (who is willing to work) to learn almost any move or choreography no matter how difficult it may seem at first.
Plus, he makes it SUPER enjoyable and FUN!"
