About michelle

Hello Students! My name is Michelle and I have been dancing since I was seven years old! I was one of two graduates to earn my Bachelor of Fine Art in Dance/Dance Pedagogy from Columbia College Chicago in 2011. I have since moved back to New York City where I dance for a professional modern dance company in downtown Manhattan. When I am not teaching class, I am busy being a student of my own all over New York City at prestigious studios such as Steps on Broadway, Gibney Dance Center and Broadway Dance Center. It is here where I take daily classes with the country's greatest dance teachers/choreographers to continue my never ending training in dance techniques and developments. As a working professional dancer, I understand the rigor that it takes to achieve your goals and I work ...

Talented and passionate teacher

Michelle is the total package when looking for a dance teacher. Not only does she have a passion for dance and passing this on to her students. She is extremely professional. Her years of experience and study are evident in the way she approaches teaching. Michelle knows how the body works, and is able to explain things in a way that make sense to her students. I always have fun working with Michelle. She is a constant motivator. I feel like a more confident dancer having worked with Michelle. It truly is a gift.

Opera Voice
Rebecca Luttio is an amazing voice teacher

Rebecca is an Incredible person to study voice with, She has and inspiringly beautiful sound, and she's really friendly, upbeat, positive, and always enthusiastic about what were doing. Every time I don't understand something, she finds a new way to explain it, and seems to have an infinite amount of patients. I feel like what has changed the most since I began taking lessons with Rebecca, Is the physical training that comes with singing opera, as well as learning how to use your air and broadening your range, which would have never crossed my mind before. I really like that she is a student as well as a teacher and comes to every lesson with new Ideas. For me the couple years we have worked together so far have really changed the way I sing with my whole body, I would recommend her to anyone who really loves to sing.

Ballroom Dance · In studio
I was taking lessons with Ekaterina for a year. I walked into her studio as a beginner dancer, to make my dream come true. Ekaterina is the most talented instructor I ever met. She is not only very talented dancer, but also beautiful person outside and inside. I started with salsa dancing, after few lessons I decided to try other dances and it was the best idea. Now you will never see me seating down at the birthdays, weddings and events. I am very proud of my achievements and with out Ekaterina it would never happen.
Ekaterina is the owner of two beautiful studios in NYC and Hoboken, NJ. All instructors are very professional and very nice people, great service and good prices, they always have different promotions going on for new people.
So if you are looking into taking Ballroom and Latin dance lessons then Ekaterina and her studio would be perfect place for anybody.
Bienvenue dance center is a great place to have fun, relax and meet new friends. They changed my life.

Marlene R. Astoria, NY

I've directed and choreographed countless music videos, including hip hop legend, 2Pac Shakur's last. My goal is to have you feel the music at your core and let your feelings inspire your moves and energy. Regardless of age or level, I'll have you moving.
I specialize in hip hop and house music.
I have people warm up first, with stretching and isolated moves. I then move on to demonstrating expressive moves that come from the feeling of the music, until you feel it is like electricity moving through your body. I can have you feeling comfortable and confident on the dance floor, or prepare for an advanced performance.

About Marlene

I love teaching people to express themselves in the performing and written arts. I am great with beginners. I attended Ithaca College’s film program on a screenwriting scholarship. Since then, I've directed and choreographed over 50 music videos including 2Pac Shakur’s last, Amy Winehouse’s “F-Me Pumps,” as well as an award winning indie feature called THE BIG SHOT-CALLER. It was well received by the New York Times and critic Kam Williams gave it four stars. I was selected by FILMMAKER Magazine as one of their “Top 25 New Faces of Independent Film.” I have since written and directed three different comedy web series on YouTube entitled “My Parents Are Crazier Than Yours,” “Angry Gladys,” and “I Don’t Care About the Assholes with Dr. Rita Gatswani.” I am currently in the process ...

Hip Hop Dance · In home
I have little dance background. Took some ballet when I was a kid but that's all. I watched a few dance movies such as "Step Up" and it inspired me to take up hip hop dancing. I took a couple of group lessons in one of those dance studios but I did not feel comfortable after that because everybody there seemed so skilled. I decided to go for private lessons and came across Marlene's profile. My first lesson with her went well. She was VERY patient! Since I'm a beginner she took it easy on me and taught me dance moves that she felt I would be capable of handling. She plans on teaching me more advanced moves as I progress into the next level. I really appreciate her patience and I look forward to my next lesson. ABSOLUTELY RECOMMEND!

Marlene is a great hip hop teacher! She's patient, has good technique, and an outgoing personality. I highly recommend!! So far I've only had 3 lessons with her but I booked a few more so I can continue to grow as a dancer. For practice, I go out to clubs with some friends. Guys notice me more and ask me to dance. I am more confident than ever! Thanks to Marlene!!

Acting · Online
Verified Student
Marlene has been a remarkable teacher for me. I had never been involved in any type of Acting previously, but I always had a curiosity to try it out. I initially scheduled my online acting classes with Marlene to help give me confidence in expressing more of my natural self in my presentations, sales delivery, and daily conversations for my job. But I also went into these lessons with the goal of trying something exciting and somewhat daring, and who knows, maybe there is a role out there for me to try out in the future as I continue to improve my abilities and talents in acting. Marlene is very understanding and takes the time to learn about her students. From the very first minute I felt completely comfortable with her style of teaching. She challenges and encourages me throughout our lessons and I have already noticed significant improvements. She has opened me up to a new and adventurous path in how I can incorporate acting in my life and I am truly grateful for her help. I look forward to more lessons with Marlene and I highly recommend her.
