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.

About Michelle
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.

Madia is by far the very best dance instructor you could find! I have decided to hire her to teach my daughter online since we live in such a rural area. She did such an amazing job! She gave great feedback and was firm with my daughter while still being fun to work with. I would work with her again!

Dancing since the age of 3, I'd love to spark the passion of dance in anyone that's interested! With a Bachelors of Fine Arts with a concentration in Ballet Pedagogy (the art or science of teaching) this is what I've trained to do.

I specialize in Ballet, Modern and Jazz ages 5-18 beginner to advanced students. I focus on strong foundations in technique and musicality. I am also comfortable choreographing solo work for auditions.

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.

Ozone Park, NY
View Full Profile

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.

About Sarita
I am a professional dancer and dance teacher based in NYC.

asses and enjoy sharing my knowledge and experience that I have gathered throughout my career and from the world class choreographers and teachers I got to work with. I believe that as long as you truly love and devote yourself to dance there are no limits and if young or old, professional or amateur I help my students discover and improve their potential and dancing skills in a motivating and challenging manner.

Keomi has a lot of positive energy and is sensitive to the the skill levels of her students so she tailors her classes to give just enough challenge while building on students’ strengths and experiences.
Keomi gives a great cardio workout where you really sweat yet the class is so fun that you don’t notice how hard you are working!
You WILL learn many classic hip hop moves which Keo strings together to make a sexy/cool but accessible choreography. You come out of class feeling blissed - both for the vigorous workout and for accomplishing the dance moves! This is a great class for all levels.

Now, imagine yourself at a wedding, a party or even on a hot date and someone asks you to dance, show off your moves! How would you feel? Maybe you’re too shy, think you have no rhythm and you rather not embarrass yourself, in front of people.

Style Your Motion makes people feel the opposite by breaking down movements into simpler steps so that the beginner can focus on their style and rhythm. The goal we work towards with clients is being able to freestyle dance - in other words; moving to almost any song that comes on at a wedding or party. So forget all those dancers who have taken classes for years and focus on you: the person who wants to learn how to freestyle dance and of course look good doing it!

Since opening, Style Your Motion has gotten over 100 clients of which a significant amount are returning clients. They have learned the techniques needed to freestyle dance and find their style in motion. So, what is your style in motion?

About Patricia
There is this idea that some people are born with rhythm and born knowing how to dance, and some aren’t. There is also the misconception that memorizing choreography is learning how to dance. Patricia believes that dance is a form of expression that can help people from all backgrounds not only work out but also find their own style in motion.

As a kid, Patricia always had a passion for dance but her father who raised both her brother and her alone couldn’t afford to pay for dance lessons. She did not know where or how to begin, so she watched and imitated her brother pop locking, waving, and (as she would say) “his attempts to break dance” every chance I had. Patricia was around 10 years old when she saw her brother practicing in their living-room where there was a mirror that covered up an entire wall. Her brother would repeatedly pl
ay the song practicing his dance to which amazed Patricia how cool and unnatural his moves were.

When Patricia went off to middle school, her desire to dance was still there. Her passion for hip-hop, pop lock, and freestyle dance were still in her, even though she was terrible at it at the time. Around that time you tube became about, so she started watching great dancers pop locking, breakdancing and bone breaking, to any song. Her other big inspiration was Michael Jackson, especially his Billie Jean performance, you know the one where he introduces the moonwalk for the first time and on top of that dancing alone on stage without any background dancers. Although my brother made fun of me when he caught me trying to do the wave and pop, she kept practicing and practicing. She watched herself improve little by little until her wave and pop were on point.

Looking back on my story She realized she was never good at dancing until she started practicing and watching myself in the mirror. “Anyone can dance, it’s all about looking deep inside. - Patty
