Anybody can dance but it's not everybody that knows how important dance is to the body system asides it's social attraction. Depending on the type of dancing you do, you will, most likely, gain or maintain flexibility, and, if you dance fast enough to elevate your heart rate to a certain level, you'll be getting a good aerobic/cardio workout. Lots more are attached to dancing. I don't teach dance because you wanna know how to dance only but to appreciate it.

Julia is an exceptional dancer and teacher. She was so patient with my little Damian. He already feels more comfortable, and confident than he had in the past classes. His posture, and his turns are way more crisp now. The adjustments she gave really made him get it. Julia is already a gem.

As a black woman , I am adamant on breaking stereotypes in the industry aimed towards black dancers. Yet at the same time, I find it important to broadcast the art of what we are also capable of creating when given our own safe spaces. African contemporary is a genre that showcases the technique of an individual yet the overall need for rhythm. My classes will brush on the foundations of technique. Finding your best turn out, the difference between pushing your body and forcing it, injury prevention, etc. Combining my current studies of physical therapy with my forever evolving love and training for dance, we BOTH will be learning our own bodies, what it needs, how we look doing certain movements, and how to do it WELL !

"Gina is a fantastic teacher. She has an eclectic taste in music which I love. She breaks down steps easily and is very encouraging. She also has many creative and expressive ideas like dancing to lines of poetry to get the body moving. Thank you Gina for the great lessons I will certainly be continuing!"

"Beyond expectations

From our first phone call, Gina became invested in my dance journey. From modern dance, to ballet and contemporary, Gina has guided me into a new world of performance and dance. Outside of our scheduled lessons, we are loosely collaborating on a creative project - something I thought was years away until I met Gina. She taught me tactical dance fundamentals while also helping me navigate the dance and theater scene in NYC. (with which she is very connected) The best thing for me was her flexibility with the learning process. She encourages everyone to make their own journey, never forcing too much structure but always being reliable. I look forward to continuing this journey. Thank you!"

Can You Really Learn Contemporary Dance Online?

Contemporary dance is the most expressive and subjective dance form, making it more accessible to outsiders and helpful as a supplement to other dance training. Contemporary choreography techniques help dancers harness the energy and emotion of their own bodies, resulting in a more fluid and organic form of movement that can appear effortless and completely improvised to the casual observer. You have a lot of options when it comes to learning, practicing, and performing modern dance. And with t …
