As a black woman , I am adamant on breaking stereotypes in the industry aimed towards black dancers. Yet at the same time, I find it important to broadcast the art of what we are also capable of creating when given our own safe spaces. African contemporary is a genre that showcases the technique of an individual yet the overall need for rhythm. My classes will brush on the foundations of technique. Finding your best turn out, the difference between pushing your body and forcing it, injury prevention, etc. Combining my current studies of physical therapy with my forever evolving love and training for dance, we BOTH will be learning our own bodies, what it needs, how we look doing certain movements, and how to do it WELL !

Nikisha is a great instructor and knows her stuff when it comes to makeup and skincare. I learned some new tips that I've been putting into practice which has elevated my makeup game! There were some scheduling conflicts which she cleared up quickly and was much appreciated. I definitely recommend reaching out to Nikisha for a makeup lesson if you haven't already!
Aisha
I had a good lesson with Nikisha, she is professional and friendly at the same time. I had most of my questions answered, she provided support before and after the lesson as well.
Kassandra Robinson
Nikisha provided makeup lessons to my 12 year old daughter once a week. She was very loving, kind, and patient with my daughter and flexible with our schedules. What I appreciate most is that she met my daughter on her skill level and then slowly built her up. Not only did she teach my daughter how to apply makeup, but she also taught her the importance of cleaning her face before and after applying makeup. My daughter enjoyed the lessons so much, I signed her up for additional lessons. I highly recommend Nikisha.

Piano Lessons with me will cover the core and fundamentals of playing but I allow my students the authority to learn music and songs that they enjoy to ensure the lessons remain fun and entertaining. I want people to always learn the basics to lay the foundation but what propelled me to a higher level was always making sure to have fun as I progressed in my playing.

Even if you’re a beginner or self taught, it’s always a good start here. I’m one of his students and I self taught for a bit and he caught me up on the essentials such as basic scales and new chords. Definitely 5 starts from me since he can go at your pace and helps you a lot along the way

"Ms. Judy is a patient, friendly, and an encouraging instructor. My six year old has enjoyed her lessons and have complimented Judy’s encouraging teaching style. We had an in person local instructor, but due to the pandemic she was not able to resume teaching lessons. Judy conducted an assessment and began where the other instructor ended without missing a beat! I am grateful for her sharing her gift and talent with my child."

"I've been taking piano lessons with Jesse for a few months, learning how to improvise. He knows alot about music theory and communicates the concepts clearly. I was surprised how much I learned in such a short time with him. He is clearly very experienced, and once I told him my music goals, he quickly put together a plan to help me progress. I continue to take lessons with him because they are enjoyable and I believe I am becoming a better musician."
