From start to finish, my daughter's first lesson with Alida was exemplary. She understood what the goals were and crafted techniques and practices for both the lesson itself as well as items to be done at home. Looking forward to the continued progress that we are seeing already!

Alida was fantastic! She made me feel completely comfortable and took everything step by step. She focused on strengthening my weaknesses by showing me new stretches and techniques every lesson. Alida truly is an amazing teacher. Even though I've only worked with her for five days, Alida has made my technique and main focus. It was the best and I plan (and hope) to work with her again and again!

Alida is one of the best, most caring dance teachers I've ever had. In just a few short lessons she taught me to really believe in myself, boosted my confidence and taught me technique and important combinations for important upcoming auditions. She is very patient and really catered to my needs. She doesn't ever waste any time and I always leave a lesson feeling good and really feeling like I'm getting my moneys worth. Very thankful I found her and would recommend anyone take lessons with her.

I'm a professional dancer and I have trained in a variety of dance techniques since the age of six. Throughout my dance career I have become aware of the importance of cross-training for optimal conditioning of the body for the purpose of injury prevention.

I'm a certified Pilates instructor and I have more than seven years of experience as a Private Fitness Consultant, customizing my workout to the specific needs, goals and abilities of each individual client.
I created Pilates Fitness Fusion, which integrates elements from my years of dance, as well as from Yoga, Zena Rommett’s Floor Barre, Feldenkrais, Pilates and Gyrokinesis. I also draw from the fluid forms of Qi Gong, Tai Chi and Alexander Technique. The result is an incredibly diverse and specialized fitness program.

Pilates Fitness Fusion will help you to strengthen and scu
lpt your whole body, shed excess weight and address postural imbalances, so that you can be
FIT, HEALTHY and PAIN FREE!

Charly is the best!

After giving birth to two children, it is not easy to get back in shape and I honestly think, that it would have not been possible if it weren't for Charly.

She is very sensitive to the health issues one faces and knows exactly what to do and what not to do. At the same time she gently pushes you enough to actually make the big difference. I am now back to the way I was before having the kids - just that now I am even little stronger.

But it is not just the strength and shape of your body, but Charly will also help you adjust for any imbalances in your body.

I was very sad when I moved from Brooklyn and was not able to take her class anymore, but I am still doing a lot from our routine, that helps me stay fit.

She is wonderful!

About Sara
Hello! I'm Sara!

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.

Please inc
lude your area and availability in your messages!

I would prefer to teach students with professional or aerobic goals. Social dancing is not one of my subjects.

About Bill
I am patient, sensitive and intuitive. I teach well beyond what the choreographed movements look like. I teach how they are done in a way that maximizes their health, strength and martial benefits. I teach what makes the movements Tai Chi, so that you can incorporate the internal principles into your daily life. I teach you how to approach your practice from a perspective of growth, development, improvement, and how to become more mindful, improve mind-body connection, function, neural plasticity, health and ability.

I teach Tai Chi, Meditation, Qigong, and Ba Gua Zhang. I am a certified teacher since the year 2000, and a practitioner of the internal martial, movement, and meditative arts since 1990.

I teach on-site; privately in your home or gym, or to your group at the office, hotel, conference, or school.

My students have ran
ged in age from 2 years old to 95 years old. Teaching sites have included: pre-K and early childhood learning schools, senior centers and senior homes, corporate offices, hotels, industry conferences; and boutique gyms, wellness centers and physical therapy offices.

I have also taught ongoing classes, weekend workshops and seminars, and week-long retreats in New York, London, and Frankfurt.

I have been awarded medals in a number of regional tournaments and have been featured in several martial arts magazines.

I am also a certified scuba diver, and an avid world traveler. Find out more at my website comprehensivetaichi.

About Bailey
I am currently the Visual Arts Teacher as well as the Director of Advisory at Northside Charter High School in Brooklyn, NY. I have helped develop the school’s culture significantly over the past five years I have been there.

My mission at Northside Charter High School was to create a curriculum that shows our students that their presence is essential to the ever-changing arts community. This led to creating the curriculum for Northside Television, which is Northside's first web-based school news network. NTV has grown to become a staple in Northside’s community and has brought about positive changes to the culture of the school. My master's thesis based on this course entitled, “Media Production and its Role in Preparing High School Students to be 21st Century Learners”, provides data on how our program has brought new skill-sets to t
he senior cohort. Students of all backgrounds are on the screen and are representing their community, their ideals, and their concerns.

Due to the success of our program, PBS chose Northside to become an official NewsHour Student Reporting Lab. CNN Director and three-time Emmy award-winning director, Luanne Dietz, mentored our seniors. Students also have the opportunity to utilize PBS’s resources by offering them internships and personal recommendations.

I’ve also worked in conjunction with local Brooklyn galleries such as the RAM Gallery and 630 Flushing to provide Portfolio Development students with the opportunity to display and sell their artwork.

She is a well versed artist with many different skills, though where she shines is in drawing which has helped me in my understanding in the concepts of light and shadow, gesture and figure drawing, as well as how different strokes and the effects they carry, whether using graphite, charcoal, pastels, and other mediums. It all came to use in my college application process for developing my portfolio as I was accepted into a variety of colleges and universities across the country

Ms Goldenbaum has been by far the best artistic navigator. Not only has she taught me how to stroke a brush, she taught me how to really tap in with my mind and become one with the art itself. If it wasn’t for Ms Goldenbaum, I wouldn’t know as much as I do now about things like abstract art , water colors and primary colors. Shouts to Ms G!

Ms.Goldenbaum has taught me numerous techniques and skills when it came to photography and art overall. She is patient, a team player and she really guides you to see more than art by itself. She has taught me that art is almost another language for people to express themselves freely. Through a camera lens too, you can capture more than just one picture because one picture can tell a story. Thank you Ms.Gold!

Highly recommended!! I brought my daughter to the new gymnastics gym Eliana is manager at (it has everything and really nice), and she coached my daughter one on one. She learnt more in one hour with Eliana than she did all year! Eliana is super professional, spots better than any coaches I've seen, and knows how to make the lesson both fun and very valuable. Also a great fee considering she got a private lesson in a beautiful gym. My daughter now LOVES Eliana and can't wait for her next session.
