This lesson will consist of a warm-up and dance combination that focuses on the dynamics within hip hop movement. Each lesson will consist of a different routine to a new song. The student will be highly encouraged to be creative and showcase their individuality within phrases. By the end of these lessons students will improve their rhythm, musicality and overall hip hop dancing abilities.

About Briana
Briana has enjoyed teaching since she was a teaching assistant at Detroit Windsor Dance Academy, her high school dance studio. Since then she has taught students within Washington DC Public Schools, the University of Michigan Recreation Center, the Capitol Hill Arts Workshop, Morton Street Dance Center, District Dance Arts, as well as many other studios and non-profit organizations. Teaching allows her to express herself, pass on her knowledge and experiences and inspire students to develop their technique, creativity, individuality and showmanship.

There is never a dull moment in Briana’s classes! Her specific classes and lesson plans are catered to specific age groups from Pre-K to adults. They consist of engaging movement activities, warm-up, and complex movement combinations. She is an energetic and patient teacher who seriously
takes into account the needs and skill level of the student in preparing her lesson plans and material.

Briana’s use of dance vocabulary and physical demonstrations allow her to teach the material accurately and effectively. Her positive attitude and constant words of encouragement keep students motivated and engaged in the lesson. Students will increase their knowledge and physical vocabulary of the movement style and leave each lesson a better dancer, performer and person.

She received her Bachelor’s of Fine Arts in Dance and Bachelors of Arts in Sociology from the University of Michigan in May of 2013 and has had a wide range of professional experience. She has worked with and performed works by modern dance choreographers such as Lindsey Merchant, Melissa Beck, Germaul Barnes, Jessica Fogel, Christopher Huggins, Shen Wei and Dianne McIntyre. She was artistic director of a chapter of the international hip-hop dance company Dance2XS International.

Briana was a full-time company member with StepAfrika!, a professional stepping company in Washington, DC from 2013-2015 and currently, she is working with CityDance resident artist S.J. Ewing & Dancers. Briana has had the privilege of performing at DC's City Rhythms Festival, Catholic Universities Hartke Theater, the Hill Center, the VelocityDC Festival, the Guantanomo Bay Naval Base as well as others. Recently she was invited to perform a modern dance solo in Dance Place’s 2014 New Releases Choreographers Showcase and Joy of Motions 2014 Dance Project Concert. Most recently, she served as the assistant choreographer on the American Theater’s Company’s production of The Project(s) in Chicago, IL, rated 4 stars by the Chicago Tribune. Most recently, she collaborated with Hard Soles Dance Company on a new piece titled “Re:set”, combining contemporary dance and body percussion, for the 2016 March on Washington Film Festival in honor of the 70th anniversary of the integration of the NFL and was chosen as Dance Place's 2016 New Releases Commission Recipient in support her new work to be premiered the summer of 2017.

Briana encourages students to bring writing materials to each lesson to take notes for any learned vocabulary and each lesson will follow with a recorded video of the movement for the students to refer to until the next lesson.

I'm extremely new to ballet and dance in general (for reference I'm 16). Briana was very patient and an amazing teacher! Very friendly and welcoming while still being very professional. It's great to get the exact corrections I need without feeling bad about it and yet still work on it until proper. Very happy and pleased!

My daughter had a great first session. She identified my daughters areas of weakness and began immediately to help improve them. Looking forward to our next session.

I am already worried that if I tell people how amazing Briana is that she will get too booked up for me :) She is a great instructor with a huge heart. Loved it.

Hip Hop has different components. But flow style and staccato movement is my Fave! Based on the music selection Hip Hop can scream powerful and intention. Musicality is what you'll feed off of.... transitions and hard hits. Each level will challenge you in all these areas; as well as dancing between beats. Come join me... you will feel it!

About Dwan
Hiii... I'm Dwan and I'm so excited to meet with you and have a blast learning with each other. I've been teaching private lessons since 2000 and I have loved the growth that I have seen in my clients; gained skills in multiple dance styles, grasping the understanding of musicality & coordination, and the comfortability in stage presence. My journey began in 6 grade at my college prep magnet school Charleston County School of The Arts; I attended this school through 12th grade and thereafter I excepted a scholarship to Columbia College. These two schools gave me the foundation of dance history, tech, skills in instructing, and the quality of being versatile in styles. Along with a professional background in music videos, tv shows. productions, and tours; I have insight on how to market yourself in the entertainment industry. Best way
to describe myself, I'm high energy and I'm a big bubble of fun, and my teaching style is full of dedication, patience, and positive reinforcement. I look forward to helping you reach you goals!!! Let's Dance!!!!

About Amanda
Hello Lovely future students!!! I am a professional actor, dancer, choreographer, director and a Texas state certified educator! I have taught nearly every subject in public schools from grades k - 12 as well as acting, musical theatre, dance and voice at the college level!

Acting students can expect to improve each week in their character development, technique, script analysis and realistic performance abilities. We will also explore theatre spaces, prepare for auditions and determine specific physical warm ups designed for the individual student to assist in releasing tension. I strive to help all students perform at their highest level and obtain professional opportunities!

Dance students can expe
ct to learn technique styles and combinations in accordance with the style of dance we are learning. Students will experience various forms of dance, warm ups and physical conditioning.

It is a goal to assist to students in their craft and guide them to achieve their personal goals within dance -whether that be stage or commercial dance!

Voice students can expect to improve week to week in their vocal technique.

I can help any student to sing with freedom, confidence, and expression.

Academic students can look forward to a fun learning environment, honing in concepts from their subject in a unique, non lecture style. I am an incredibly hands on teacher and love to incorporate technology into my lessons!

About Tomecia M.

Conyers, GA

View Full Profile

Dance is an amazing gift used to express how we feel and what we believe. It tells a story, oftentimes our own. I believe in teaching the art of how to freely express yourself through telling a story with every move. Whether you are a trained dancer or a beginner, you have the right to express yourself through creative movement and I can help you with that.

About Tomecia
I am a lover of dance. I believe dance builds confidence, strength, courage and discipline. I have danced all my life and for the past 18 years have had the privilege of leading two dance ministries. One for 7 years and the other for the past 11 years. I believe dance is one of our greatest forms of expression. It is our voice. Whether in a group setting or a solo piece you have the right to be as loud as you want or as quiet as you like.

I specialize in teaching others to find that voice on the inside of them and create from that place. While technical dance is absolutely phenomenal, it is not required to be a student of mine. I have been known to open up the voice and set free many trained in ballet, jazz, tap, African, hip hop and more.

Never be afraid to create and I know I am the one to help you go beyond what you ever coul
d have imagined.

About Julia C.

I got my start in dance at the age of three and was classically trained in a dance school as well as in my academic school. I had my first choreography project in high school and immediately fell in love with the ability to create a story through movement. For some extra training and exposure, I began to teach at a separate dance school in addition to my high school team and my dance school I had been competing with since first starting my career. While I’m college, although I did not major in dance, I joined a semi professional company that allowed me to continue my art along with my studies and used it as an avenue for expression and self exploration. After a 20 year career, I so look forward to giving you/your children the gift that has continued to give to me for so many years.

About Julia
My love for dance grows far beyond my 20 years in the field, it has become apart of who I am and look forward to sharing that with you in a unique and exciting way! I am able to offer individualized and custom lessons that will tailor your experience to be one of a kind, ensuring you get the most out of your experience. Feel free to ask me about my exciting experiences including traveling all over the world for dance, as well as some of my experience teaching right here in my home state of North Carolina! Whether you’re 3 or 73, I’d love to teach you what the art of dance is all about.
