Konrad R.
I enjoyed working with Adam on reducing my accent. He has an uncanny talent to pick up subtleties in my pronunciation to identify where my accent becomes apparent. He worked iteratively with me to find words, syllable, vowels or consonants that I mispronounce. What makes him a great teacher is that he approaches the pronunciation from many different angles. It's not easy to work on your own accent which is why his witty teachings helps a lot to make every session very enjoyable.
Sergio
He pinpoints a lot of small things, that overall help tremendously. He has a great ear and picks up on little subtleties in your voice that you can improve, and this causes you to hold yourself accountable to the same standards as a result. Overall, after just one lesson, i have learned a lot and am eager to continue learning with Adam.
Justin
Adam was great to work with for my first lesson. He has a lot of experience and gives good tips and advice. I'm looking forward to more lessons with him.

She’s really awesome and friendly. My kids definitely were so excited and happy for how she taught them and her enthusiasm to teach new skills. She was right on time to the appointment and Mary takes her role seriously in terms of COVID protection. Looking forward to continuous lessons :)
Sophia A.
I really enjoy the Dance Fitness Sessions we do together and no wonder Mary's talent in music and rhythm synchronization gave an extra point to the whole experience. Even if my day is hard and I do the extra mile to keep up with my sessions I'm always rewarded in the end with great mood and feeling pumped. I highly recommend Mary to keep you fit and enjoy yourself at the same time.
Katy
I m a female senior citizen of 75 yrs old and have suffered from chronic back pain and weak and stiff muscles. when I met Mary I fell in love with her. Her pleasant and warm disposition attracted me immediately. I liked the idea of her online training sessions, so I don’t have to travel to a gym. She is very patient with me and knows how to keep me motivated to continue exercising. She has changed my life and boost my desire to get better.
Mary is very talented with many years of experience in both Pilates and physical training and she is a beautiful ballet teacher as well! I highly recommend her !

Originating from America, Modern Theatre Dance is a staple study for any performer in training.

This style combines leaps, kicks, turns and incorporates both strength and flexibility to provide a solid base technique for every dancer.

I am able to tailor my classes for my students personal needs as well as offer 'at home' conditioning exercises for continued growth.

As a 63-year old I was concerned it would tough for me to learn. I'm sure I don't retain and absorb like a 12-year old but I AM LEARNING TO PLAY. Justin is very patient and accommodating and I am inspired to practice weekly. Most of all I'm having fun.
