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.

Hi, there! My name is Stephanie and I look forward to working with you. Salsa - Latin dancing is so much fun and can be as laid back or as energetic as you want....

I teach both Salsa on 1 and on 2 - very similar and yet very different in mannerisms. And let's not forget the Merengue, and Bachata.

I've been teaching private lessons since 2008 and have loved helping my students feel good about what they are learning, and accomplishing the goals they set forth.

Stephanie is an absolute pleasure to learn from. She is kind and competent and will very quickly have you at a level where you can comfortably dance on your own.

She is a genuinely nice person and takes the time to learn the way that you learn so that she can teach you in a manner best suited to the way you learn. I had so much fun in my first few lessons with Stephanie leading up to a trip where I wanted to be able to do some swing dancing with friends. On the first day I briefly outlined my objectives with her and over the next handful of lessons we achieved them all. I am so happy to I decided to move forward with Stephanie and look forward to being her student for a long time!
Erika
Stephanie is amazing. She is so sweet and patient and I highly recommend her and her class. She is very talented and knowledgeable for the advanced dancer and she also explains and demonstrates the dance steps in an easy to understand way for complete beginners like myself.

Unfortunately, yesterday was my last lesson with Mark, as I am moving to Guam. I would definitely not be giving up my weekly lesson with him if that weren't the case! I've learned so much in the short couple months taking lessons from him. I would recommend him to anyone of any skill level. Very helpful and kind. :)

I was recently a professional ballerina but had to take a temporary hiatus due to a knee injury. So I am extremely passionate about educating dancers in working their bodies safely and effectively.
I not only work on teaching basic technique, but I also teach artistry, injury prevention and experiences in the professional world.
I have worked with students from intermediate/beginner to advanced, professionals as well as adults.
I have a natural passion for teaching dance and will personalize a class as I get to know you!

I am a lifelong actor and passionate teacher, and I love helping young performers find and share their unique voices!

I have an MFA from the Academy for Classical Acting at George Washington University/ The Shakespeare Theatre of DC and a BFA from NYU-Tisch. I am a member of Actors' Equity, and have performed at The Actor's Studio (NYC), Bucks County Playhouse (PA), and Annapolis Shakespeare (MD), among many others.

As a teaching artist, I have worked with students of all levels, ages 5-88 on audition preparation, role development, and physical and vocal technique. I particularly love helping young actors prepare for college auditions.

As your coach, we will patiently and persistently discover the methods that enable your absolute best work. I am a certified Yoga teacher, and I love to draw on principles of mindfulness in performance preparation. From Linklater voice work, to Mask exercises, to breath awareness, we will develop a method that works for you. Best of all: ...

I came to Jennie with basically 0 acting experience and wow am I glad I went to Jennie. She is the most kind, compassionate and supportive instructor out there. Her knowledge was vast and whether you want to get into film, Tv, theater or just wanna get out of your shell, Jennie is the instructor for you.

She helped me every step of the way to hone my craft, work on monologues, mock audition and so much more. Jennie’s way of teaching makes you think differently and she truly brings out the best side of you. Plus Jennie is so supportive going at my speed giving constructive feed back and making me feel great about my progress.

Lastly, Jennie was understanding of my time and worked around my schedule as well as the “homework” or “things to work on” she gave. Jennie was flexible and the Zoom calls worked incredibly well during this pandemic. Every day I would get off of our call with a smile on my face feeling accomplished!

Overall I would say Jennie was helpful, knowledgeable and a great instructor. I would highly recommend her for anyone who is looking to start acting and have no idea where to begin.
James Sclafani S.
My daughter loved the session. Thank you!
Chad S.
A truly gifted instructor. I came to Jennie with zero acting experience. She was able to patiently and carefully guide me to focus on my scene and most importantly how to RELAX and let the scene flow. Her knowledge of acting techniques and tips is unparalleled. She teaches you how to look at the scene as a whole and truly understand what your character is feeling. I highly recommend Jennie to anyone who is interested in learning more about acting.

She has a wonderful personality and made me feel at ease very quickly. The exercises were super helpful, and she explained things very well. I could go on, but I want to keep practicing what I just learned. I'm looking forward to my next session with Molly!"

I had no idea how it was affecting my vocal performance. Next week we start video taping my performances, and then on to endurance training for my shows. Fawn knows what she is doing!
