Careful private work on shape and function of the body, part by part. Breaking down the language of the movement so you know what you are doing when and how to carefully develop the parts that are weakest by separating them from the mix of all the movement and then studying them minutely until the physical process makes sense to your mind and body. Musicality from the moment you stand in first position. Relationship to music in the form itself and toward the music you are hearing. Turns, jumps, adagio, petite allegro, alignment, balance. Barre. Center. Feet. Head.....
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
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.

My classes are for everyone and I would love to share my passion of dance with you!
With an emphasis on strong foundations and musicality I would love to help anyone become a more well rounded dancer.
Whether you're just starting out or want to polish a few problem areas I'm here to help!
I started dancing at the age of 3. I am well versed in Ballet, Modern and Jazz. I attended Joffrey San Antonio (2004) and Paul Taylor New York (2010) intensives.
While in high school I taught Ballet, Jazz, Pre-Pointe and Pointe classes to dancers age 3-14.
In 2011 I graduated from the University of Oklahoma with a Bachelor of Fine Arts in Ballet Pedagogy (which is the art or science of teaching).
Since moving to NYC 5 years ago I have been focused on performing with such dance companies as Exit 12 Dance Company (2011-2012) and Community Dance Project (2013-2014). While not dancing with specific companies I have choreographed and danced in two music videos.
I can't express my love for teaching enough! To know that I could help spark the passion of dance in a young person is extremely inspiring.
I would prefer to teach students with professional or aerobic goals. Social dancing is not one of my subjects.

Hi students! I am a professional ballet/Broadway dancer with 25+ years of training and experience. I have taught at Ballet Academy East (nationally recognized for its well crafted syllabus and meticulous technique) in both the young children's pre-ballet program and the Pre-Professional Graded Level. As a student, I have attended San Francisco Ballet, Pacific Northwest Ballet, American Ballet Theater in NYC, and Central PA Youth Ballet before working on Broadway in Phantom of the Opera and with The Metropolitan Opera in Lincoln Center.
With my lessons we can work on improving strength/technique, preparing for an audition, or coaching through a variation. Not only will you gain strength and technique, but also insight into the industry from a seasoned professional. You will also leave with exercises you can practice at home for rapid improvement.
*For adults and older children/teens, studio space will be rented and subject to availability and additional fees. Contact as soon

Hello! My name is Kaeli! I have been dancing since I was little. I started my training at San Francisco Ballet and moved to New York when I was 17 to study with the Joffrey Ballet. When I was 19 I joined the Cleveland Ballet and danced with them for a season. I am now back in New York City dancing with Ballet Next. I am a certified Yoga Instructor as well. Lessons with me will be catered to your particular goals, whether its your first time at the barre or you're training to become a professional we will set goals and reach them together! I can't wait to work with you!
I have taught dancers from beginning to advanced. I absolutely love setting goals with my students and watching them grow from week to week. As a teacher and dancer I believe the process is the most important part and the results are just a cherry on top. Yoga is also a huge part of my life and I love incorporating cross training exercises as a means for injury prevention or to aid in rehab from an existing in
As a professional ballet dancer, I have extensive knowledge of the different styles of ballet (Balanchine, French, RAD, and Russian). I believe that ballet should be fun for the student and I have 3 years of teaching experience at a professional school.
I trained at San Francisco Ballet School and attended summer programs at School of American Ballet, American Ballet Theater, Chautauqua, Carolina Ballet, and the Joffrey Academy of Dance. I began my professional career with San Francisco Ballet and have since danced at the Charlotte Ballet, Pennsylvania Ballet, and Ballet Next.
I teach through all the ages from little kids to adults . From the beginner to intermediate level.
The lesson will be built together with you, depending on what you want to learn . For example, the lesson for a girl at the age of 3 will differ from somebody who wants to dance ballet in a professional way and the musical emphasize will be in both lessons, but will be teacheched differently , the same for the ballet steps and technique.
I have been teaching for 6 years group lessons and private as well.
I’ve finished my BA in Dance in Israe.
I am dancing from my childhood, I have danced in different styles : ballet,contemporary,modern,hip-hop,jazz, folk dances.
And now I am aiming the Certificate Programm of Peri Dance Capezio Center.
