How to move around like a hungry for space dancer. My teachers used to tell me to Eat Up Space. We will learn how to make our own dances. Vocabulary and Improv, Dynamic, Structure and Form. Finding what it means to write a story or poem with your body's movement, the space it is inhabiting and of course, idea.

About Gina
As of May 20th, 2018, I am in New York City again and will be accepting new students as well as reconnecting with anyone who wants to return.
I've completed two graduate degrees: one in Music and the other in Dance and Theater studies.
My undergrad degree is from The Juilliard School and it is in Dance.

I've taught children and grown ups for many years. I have a strong performing career and love the way teaching keeps me in a giving and learning place.

*** Lesson Details ***
With beginning students I am very laid back and patient and believe strongly that in the play of games and experiments technique will develop and manifest. As the student becomes more advanced I become more demanding as do the materials.

As an Acting teacher I have the capacity to take students along all the way to professional and beyond. I'm a membe
r of the Actors Studio, the performing unions and have studied since childhood at ACT and then all over the world including The National in London.

For Dance, I have a wide knowledge and can teach several forms as well as history and materials. In Juilliard I specialized in historical dance of the French Court which is also known as pre-ballet. At present I am studying Tango and other ballroom forms and can teach the beginning levels as well as help choreograph for weddings or events. Of course I also teach Ballet and many forms of Modern Dance. I adore teaching dance composition. To help a dance student make their own dances is very fulfilling.
For the Visual Arts I teach Abstract Painting as well as Installation and Performance Art.
*** Studio Equipment ***
I have supplies and space. Visual Art students need to contribute to materials by finding or purchasing whatever they like and adding to the mix. My students are welcome to use what I have here and I am always adding materials. Many people throw away materials that are perfectly good for art making so keep your eyes open and you'll find all kinds of good things. Visual Art students need to book a 2 hour minimum and I will lower the price if you just let me know you need it.

My fees: I start at a higher fee and after you've been a regular student we can lower the fee for you if you need.

*** Travel Equipment ***
just a space to work in - we can create a work space out of any space.

*** Specialties ***
In dance I teach classical ballet principles for beginners or those who are returning and want to work carefully and privately. I teach from the tradition of Alfredo Corvino's principles of relationship to organic forms and structures for sound development. I studied with Mr Corvino for years and continue to study with Ernesta Corvino.
For acting I teach a combination of classical acting technique with American sense memory and relaxation skills. I am well versed in the teachings of Lee Strasberg and then spent time in London to 'fill in the cracks' of my training with analytical skills as well as the various european influences that the Royal National embrace.
I teach creative discovery in combination with classical devices so the student can discover their own artistry while learning actual classical devices for accomplishing specific goals.

Gina is great! My 14 year old daughter loved her. She helped her work on several techniques and scenes in preparation for an audition. I would definitely recommend her for various levels of experience.
She loves the craft and it shows in her teaching. Shes tough but so loving and enthusiastic.

I have had the opportunity to learn acting with Gina and it has been great so far. When I signed up for the lessons, I signed up with Gina because of her credentials as I never had an encounter with her. From my first class itself she has taught me a lot about acting specially stage acting and that too with great enthusiasm. I now feel like pursuing it further. She is quite knowledgeable specially in her field and every moment that you are in the class with her, you are learning something new. I would highly recommend her, doesn't matter if you are just getting into the field or trying to set your advanced level stage, her talents will teach you something new that would take you to the next level. I hope you can take advantage of learning from a Great Artist like Gina.
P.S. She is a great Dancer and a great Musician.

Good Luck!

I have and am continuing to study ballet, modern/contemporary, and jazz. I received a BFA in choreography and performance, so I hold the ability to coach as well.

Michelle grew up in Miami, Florida and developed a deep love for movement at a very young age. She graduated with a B.F.A. in Dance (with honors) and a minor in business from the Florida State University and while there performed work by choreographers including Larry Keigwin, Martha Graham, Gerri Houlihan, and Jawole Willa Jo Zollar. After graduating she became certified in Pilates Mat (Balanced Body) and relocated to New York City to pursue her career as a professional dancer. Since moving to NY, she has had the pleasure of working with JKing Dance Company and Sleep No More among many other performing artists in the city. She is a NASM certified personal trainer and will soon be certified as a corrective exercise instructor.

I had to attend a buddy's Wedding. I'm in my fifties and never been a good dancer. When I attended Wedding receptions two to three decades ago, I would manage to get through the dancing, sort of. This time, however, there was no getting around it. I would have to know how to dance because the woman that was accompanying me to the Wedding and reception was a Dance minor in College! I had a month to get it together so I contacted Michelle through Take Lessons.

Michelle is a patient knowledgeable teacher. She started me with basic dancing steps to “Panda Bear - Doin' it Right .” The basic dance steps that Michelle taught me can be used for virtually all Rock/Disco/Techno music that you will encounter. The tempos might vary, but the steps remain the same. When I became more proficient Michelle taught me line dances such as the “Macarena” and the “Cha Cha Slide.”

When I attended the Wedding reception with the Dance minor, I was confident and comfortable on the Dance floor thanks to Michelle!

Highly Recommended.

I will cater to what each individual needs, working with dance material you already know teach you choreography to achieve the following:

-provide personalized feedback to help improve technical and artistic growth.

- give tools to improve and deepen your understanding of technique

- explain how to connect your expressiveness with your technique

My style is very supportive and direct. I believe that to improve as a dancer you need personal feedback and hard work. I am very passionate about sharing what I know to help other dancers reach their goals.

About Amanda
I currently dance with the Paul Taylor 2 Dance Company and on faculty teaching at the Paul Taylor School. While maintaining a professional dance career in New York City, I have been passionate about teaching dance for the past 9 years.

I have taught Master Classes and Intensive Workshops in the Paul Taylor style throughout the nation, as well as teaching Vaganova Ballet at the Joffrey Ballet School. I have taught in numerous public schools through teaching residencies with Rioult Dance Company and Education In Dance. I believe these experiences have taught me how to assess individuals quickly and provide clear feedback in a positive and supportive way.

My teaching style is energetic, and focused on the personal experience each dancer is having, while giving direct and clear feedback. My goal is to help students reach their artistic
potential in their dancing by helping to combine technique with lyricism, rhythmic dynamics and emotive qualities.

Private lessons can be catered toward each individual. Either for an upcoming audition, feedback on solo or ensemble choreography, to help personalize technical corrections and to help push technique to a higher level, or for non dancers to help understand movement and feel comfortable in a beginning class.

Brooklyn, NY

You just want to learn how to boogie when the music hits you? Or maybe even feel more comfortable socializing when out and about? I can teach you the skills required to impress your audience and attract the right kind of attention when on the dance floor or just moving with the music.
I have been teaching dance for over 15 years, ever since starting dance clubs in high school. I learned I loved teaching and I loved to learn from others.
My goals as a teacher is~~~
~To cultivate my students' talents, strengths, and abilities in as little as one training session.
~To raise my students confidence in skills they didn't know they already possessed.
~To open the students mind on ways of thinking about rhythm and movement that can have physical results.
~To pass on knowledge

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!

Ozone Park, NY

I practice an Indian Classical dance form called Kuchipudi which hails from South of India. I have been teaching dance for more than 5 years now. I have done various workshops internationally and represented my dance style in various global platforms. Indian classical dance allows you to discover not only the beauty you carry physically but also let you discover the spiritual dimension of you. Each session will be a journey of catharsis. Each gesture, pose and movement you learn in a session holds a lot of spiritual or mythological significance. It is not just a physical workout, but a journey where you will learn tonnes about Indian culture, traditions, fashion and spiritual outlook. You will also learn a little Sanskrit and Telugu (south Indian language) while taking lessons with me. I am a perfectionist and very demanding but at the same time very fun. Your commitment and discipline drives my enthusiasm.

About Yamini
I am a professional Kuchipudi dancer. I have been practicing this dance form for more than 12 years. I am the disciple of renowned Guru Padmasri Dr. Sobha Naidu. I am classically trained in Carnatic Music for about 8 years. I have been teaching for more than 5 years. I am a performer, choreographer, instructor and dance model. Teaching is something I enjoy a lot since I feel like a sculptor who gives life to a stone.

Hola!

If you are looking to learn Salsa, Merengue, or Bachata--You have come to the right place!

As you work with me you will become more and more comfortable dancing so that you are ready for the fiesta!

I began my dance studies in Puerto Rico with traditional Bomba Y Plena. Currently, I teach latin dance with several NYC based companies.

About Ra
Hola!

My name is Ra. I am a dancer, poet, and educator. I specialize in teaching conversational Spanish, Latin Dance, and Spoken Word Poetry. I am a native Spanish speaker. Originally from Puerto Rico, I grew up between PR and New York City. I graduated from The New School University and lived abroad several years teaching language in a Bilingual Schools. I began my dance studies back home in Puerto Rico with traditional Boricua roots music like Bomba y Plena. I now work for several dance companies, perform spoken word poetry, and teach dance/poetry/spanish to children and adults. As a Teaching Artist I aim to help my students become more comfortable whether it's with learning Spanish or learning to dance Salsa, Merengue, Bachata, or Flamenco.

I believe learning new things opens up a whole new world to us. With me you will get to
a point where you feel comfortable speaking Spanish or Dancing, or writing poetry which is the ultimate goal right?! :-)

Ra was very professional, welcoming and well knowledgeable to say the least. For a beginner such as myself with no prior experience, not once did I feel left out or that I couldn't catch up to her and it was all due to Ra being willing to not only revisit the steps but to do it all over again if necessary. Ra does not only engage and interacts with you very well, but she makes certain that you are also having fun all while learning. In conclusion, I highly recommend Ra if you are looking to get your Latin groove on!

Ra is such an amazing teacher . She was very patient and kind with me making me feel at ease right away . Ra was understanding about me speaking some Spanish but being hesitant of having a Spanish conversation due to me not being fluent . She was great at taking the pressure off and actually getting you to enjoy the language and speaking it .very uplifting and I never felt discouraged if I messed up . I definitely recommend her
