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.

Wonderful experience. I think that I’ll be able to improve with him by my side :-)
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.

I've been teaching singing, drama and dance for 27 years and my students have gone on to develop a deep love of music and theater, sing and act professionally and and become music and theater teachers! Within the first few lessons, you'll start singing/speaking/moving with more confidence and as time goes by, you'll be performing like a pro! I specialize in Broadway, classical, pop and jazz, can play your songs for you and have the following tools available for your lessons: YouTube, piano and an extensive music book library. I love working with students of all experience levels!

I love it ❤️
Ben
At my granddaughter's request, I listened and enjoyed her lesson very much! Miss Ginni was very enthusiastic and demonstrated competence in working with adolescents and knowing her music well. She could tell the notes from just listening to my granddaughter play and she continually praised her efforts.Yet she kindly corrected mistakes when needed.
I learned from listening and I think I might like Miss Ginni as a teacher too!
Elias M.
Ginni is amazingly knowledgeable in all things singing and can not only help you achieve your goals but aid in the best choices to make for the advancement of your singing career. She is very kind, flexible, and motivating. You cannot ask for a better voice teacher.

Improv is a great learning tool for team building, spontaneity, listening, being present, speaking to groups, communicating one on one, saying yes and so much more. It helps that each game played builds upon the next to reinforce the learning.

Improvisers fail forward. We embrace "failure." We have to fail in order to succeed. If we aren't failing, we aren't trying.

What you get:
Team Building / Laughter Workshop
Bring the team together in an interactive environment that fosters positive thinking and collaboration.

Improv Troupe Direction - for improv troupes who need an outside eye for notes, direction and ideas for marketing your troupe. At the end of the session, you will have new games and ideas to move your troupe forward.

Christine will help each student become more present, less self-conscious and will get them excited about failing.

Expect to leave this class feeling more confident and empowered.

Christine is committed to providing a safe and courageous ...

If there were more than 5 stars, I would give them to Christine. She takes you on a journey and makes it fun ride, all the way. Will recommend anymore starting in Improv to learn from her, as I'm sure I will continue to learn from her...

Thanks for being you Christine :)

I don't know how to describe Christine, except amazing! I started taking her classes because I wanted to learn how to take myself/life less seriously and it's working!!! I would recommend Christine to anyone who is serious about improv or who just wants to learn how to really laugh and relax.

Merav was a great teacher. She helped me focus on my tone and style of the songs I chose. She was very patient and kind. I looked forward to each class.

Merav is a wonderful instructor. She is very patient and informative and never makes me feel like I am being judged for my mistakes or for asking questions. She also works very well with different styles of music and explaining how those sounds are made. And above all she is a bright soul and makes lessons comfortable and enjoyable.

We wanted something different and upbeat, and Miss G choreographed the perfect dance for us! She is a wonderful teacher, she's very patient (we never took dance lessons before and she walked us through every step!), and we had a wonderful time! I would highly recommend her!
