Wow Sergey is really great at this! My daughter just turned 5 and is still practicing her headstands against the wall hours later. Sergey's advice to have her 'help' me practice MY stretching is a double win and making her more willing to do her pushups and splits too. We are really looking forward to the next class already. Thank you so much for all the advice and feeback post class too, Sergey!

Hello! I'm a graduate of Brown University with honors in Italian Studies and Performance Studies. I am a tutor with over five years of experience and have completed over 800 hours of tutoring. I have over 25 hours of test prep training for the SAT and ACT and over 10 hours of training for Executive Functioning coaching.

I teach students test prep, math, Italian, kickboxing, and theatre. From helping students in summer school math classes, to teaching individual and group kickboxing classes, to tutoring students of Italian language and literature, to working with high school test prep students, I have a deep passion for learning and for sharing knowledge.

As an actor, I have performed at Williamstown, La MaMa, and the Washington National Opera. I studied with faculty from Brown University, the Moscow Art Theatre, and the Barrow Grou
p. During college, I had opportunities to live in Florence, Rome, and Sicily, and in my senior year I became a tutor of Italian for the dean of the college. I also have taught kickboxing for the last two years and have experience with Muay Thai and San Da.

I am eager to help you develop new skill sets and reach your goals.

About Da-Rell
I am a hip-hop/house/contemporary dancer with professional/classical training, an academic background, and a passion for taking my students to the next level. I received my degrees in Dance, Psychology and Philosophy, and use these fields as a framework to help direct and assist students in learning how to train their bodies and minds in many different disciplines. I've lived in many cities and always learned each city's dance styles.
I can teach: popping, locking, waving, tutting, liquid, sliding, house, footwork, breakdancing, acrobatics, choreography, improvisation, and theatrical.
I can help you build your own style. A style that specifically pertains to you. I'll show you how to incorporate concepts, themes, and ideas, to tell a story, or to just express yourself through movement and rhythm.
I love teaching, and I love that look i
n a persons face after they get something that was tough. I love helping them understand what they could do differently to yield different results.
If you want to learn hip hop, house, or fusion- I am a very patient yet motivating teacher. I can be strict at times, but only when needed ;-)

Classes focus on ideas and concepts as well as ways to act them out. We learn how to utilize balance, emotion, finesse, attention, and focus to transition between movements. Exploring performing with character, style, technique, and form to develop their own individual philosophies on movement. We dissect different instruments and rhythms to experience them in different parts of the body. Integrating hip hop, ballet, modern, house, and martial arts into one cohesive style.
My goal is to foster artistic growth and to help you surprise yourself!

Da-Rell and I hit it off right away. In less than a day we already had a dance lesson planned, and we got right to it. Da-Rell has groove and is the number one recommended hip-hop dance trainer from the Take Lessons company. We went over moon walking, sliding / gliding, and other modern hip-hop moves. Da-Rell also helped film the dance moves on camera so I could keep the video as a study guide. Thank you Da-Rell!

I have been literally to 4 youtube teachers and though I have nothing bad to say about any of them, i know that I need a long term teacher that I can see myself growing with as a singer. Our personalities just meshed. She knows how to make one feel comfortable. She is very encouraging to students with zero self confidence like me. I think I have found the teacher I’ve been looking for in Elena! i’m excited to see what she can do to transform my voice. Her resume as well as her reviews( students spoke highly of her character) are what stood out for me out of thousands of teachers online! It is also important that I love to listen to my teacher’s voice and i love her voice😊

About Kimberly
I am a trained actress in my late 20's. I have experience coaching many professional working actors. I have worked on audition sides for TV (Law & Order, Narcos, Disney, SMILF, etc), independent films, big budget studio films, web series, off broadway plays, off off broadway plays, monologues, and anything in between with my students!

I am currently the creator, writer, lead actress & executive producer of my own comedic web series (to air mid-2018).

I have been trained by exceptional teachers in the following: Linklater (voice), Williamson (movement), film/tv & theater, script analysis, theater & film history, cold reading, monologue, stand-up comedy, etc. I have also been mentored by the legendary standup comedian Rick Crom.

I can also work with the actor, writer or comedian on the business aspect of their career: how can I
get the best headshot?, what things should I be doing everyday to reach my acting goals (some may not even be acting/writing/comedy!)?, how do I get in front of this specific casting director/producer/etc?, what events/workshops should I be attending? We can go over all that plus how to deal with nerves, get through personal blocks, fear-related patterns, and other things that may be holding you back from being the best artist you can be!

I believe training is so important so congrats on taking the first step towards a successful, exciting career! I can't wait to share my passions with you!

I have a self tape set-up with a backdrop, professional lighting & tripod. I am happy to be your reader & coach as we film your audition, scene or stand up set. We can use this as a tool to improve or film a self tape audition. We can also chose your best take together.

If you are serious about magic, I will make sure you're able to perform to the best of your ability for your family and friends as well as strangers. I have been doing magic for over 25 years and I know there is no better feeling than to have a group of people dumbfounded asking you "how'd you do that?" and I want you to have that feeling.

Jessica is a superb teacher. Whether it is ballet, tap or jazz ,she uses her technique and knowledge to give the foundation a dancer needs. She also brings a joy of learning to her students through her passion as a teacher.

I had not taken a dance class in over 30 years so I was a little nervous about my first class back. Jessica immediately made me feel at ease - she was very clear and precise in explaining the basic steps and my confidence was restored! Her class is challenging yet a lot of fun! I would highly recommend her for children as well as adults.

About Franklyn
I am a med school dropout who decided one day not to keep fighting his creativity demon. Next came 6 years of Musical Theater training at Julliard (2 years), Columbia (2years, ma degree), Indiana school of music (2 years), and one year of social work training at Pittsburgh, 1970-1980 I spent 10 years immersing myself in the avaunt guarde musical theater scene in NYC.

I studied physical theater with Richard Schechner and Brechtian theater with mabou mines, the uta hagen system with Jack Axelrod, and classical acting technique with Wal Cherry, also a workshop with the Grotowski company. Meanwhile, along the way I more and more integrated the gestalt therapy techniques I learned at Pittsburgh into my teaching/directing style. 1981-2016 I spent 35 years mostly in Israel running my own studio and teaching for a while acting at tel aviv u.
theater dept. also in Israel I sopped up a lot of Kabbalah wisdom, especially of the Bratislava and chabbad sorts, though i am mostly avant garde and not at all "religious" in the usual sense.

Since 2016 I am teaching here in NYC and directing three musical theater shows which I wrote/composed. from my BA in chemistry at Cornell U till my social work training at Pittsburgh i studied 14 years total at 9 universities. Along with all the philosophy and kabbalah. Also, I am a pro dixiland and klezmer trombone player, with many years experience in that field. I teach acting, singing, and movement, all grounded in gestalt work as reality 101. "If you don't deal the reality of the situation, the reality of the situation will deal with you." It's your choice, but this stuff is not for everybody. You gotta have the intelligence for the ideas, the quest for the truth search, and the talent to weld it all into your own work as an artist of the theater.

You can be the horse and let me be the jockey/teacher/coach, or together we can create your own personal brand of musical theater using your particular set of skills: acting, singing, movement, writing, etc. from mabou mines theater I learned about creating a "personal myth" project". The gestalt work gives you polarities, opposites sides of your personality. These polarities director Michael Chekhov labels your "psychological gestures". Next, you use these polarities as subtext for a one person show, and overlay whatever metaphor or "character" or image suits your fancy. For example, you as donald trump, or you as a humming bird. the meld of two levels then shines as illuminated "live form".

Working with Franklyn is being with a true master of a field. Not only was the process well organized, done pragmatically, and attention paid to the details, but also Franklyn taught his trade as he took you along his particular Gestalt influenced method. He is well versed and highly skilled in helping actors and people reach their potential. I recommend him for his vast knowledge, dedication, and hard work in making a final product, the product is a better you! Thank you Franklyn!

Instead of filling in all my credits below, it's much easier to go to IMDB and look up my name: Kristina Hayes.
You can not only see my credits, there is a link to my acting/dance website where you can view various acting reels and television performances as well as clips of comedy shorts I've made over the years. And you'll probably see that I also teach ballroom dance if that's of any interest to you!

*Please note that I've had a background check on another site and don't wish to pay for it again at this time, but I can see about forwarding you that information. If it's not possible to forward, I'll be sure to get a background check done here as well :)
