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.

I've been teaching ballroom dances for a few years . Within the first few lessons, you'll be able to learn couple of basic moves and start dancing with different kind of music. As time goes on you'll be able to learn more fun moves and go further in technique and have fun when you dancing) I specialize in ballroom dances as well as in wedding dance. I love working with students of all ages and experience levels and I can't wait to meet you!

About Olga
I was dancing and competing in Ballroom dances for many years and i learned that dancing can be very fun and help you to relax. Or it could be very complicated if you decide to reach certain level. But no matter how old you are and what experience you had, it's possible to become a dancer and enjoy it alone or with a partner every minute of your life. And trust me, from the moment you will be able to do first steps of rumba/waltz or any other dances- you won't stop!
Just tell me your goals and we will try to achieve them.

Olga has been instructing me for almost four years now. She has never once failed to brighten my day. I have progressed from a barely competent beginner to a very advanced dancer under her watch. I have learned so much from her. She is warm, funny, and nurturing. She has very special ways of making sure you always remember the lessons and materials. And she's getting married soon, so everyone give her congratulations!"

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!

You just want to learn how to boogie when the music hits you? Or maybe even feel more comfortable socializing when out and about? I can teach you the skills required to impress your audience and attract the right kind of attention when on the dance floor or just moving with the music.
I have been teaching dance for over 15 years, ever since starting dance clubs in high school. I learned I loved teaching and I loved to learn from others.
My goals as a teacher is~~~
~To cultivate my students' talents, strengths, and abilities in as little as one training session.
~To raise my students confidence in skills they didn't know they already possessed.
~To open the students mind on ways of thinking about rhythm and movement that can have physical results.
~To pass on knowledge

About Da-Rell
I am a hip-hop/house/contemporary dancer with professional/classical training, an academic background, and a passion for taking my students to the next level. I received my degrees in Dance, Psychology and Philosophy, and use these fields as a framework to help direct and assist students in learning how to train their bodies and minds in many different disciplines. I've lived in many cities and always learned each city's dance styles.
I can teach: popping, locking, waving, tutting, liquid, sliding, house, footwork, breakdancing, acrobatics, choreography, improvisation, and theatrical.
I can help you build your own style. A style that specifically pertains to you. I'll show you how to incorporate concepts, themes, and ideas, to tell a story, or to just express yourself through movement and rhythm.
I love teaching, and I love that look i
n a persons face after they get something that was tough. I love helping them understand what they could do differently to yield different results.
If you want to learn hip hop, house, or fusion- I am a very patient yet motivating teacher. I can be strict at times, but only when needed ;-)

Classes focus on ideas and concepts as well as ways to act them out. We learn how to utilize balance, emotion, finesse, attention, and focus to transition between movements. Exploring performing with character, style, technique, and form to develop their own individual philosophies on movement. We dissect different instruments and rhythms to experience them in different parts of the body. Integrating hip hop, ballet, modern, house, and martial arts into one cohesive style.
My goal is to foster artistic growth and to help you surprise yourself!

Da-Rell and I hit it off right away. In less than a day we already had a dance lesson planned, and we got right to it. Da-Rell has groove and is the number one recommended hip-hop dance trainer from the Take Lessons company. We went over moon walking, sliding / gliding, and other modern hip-hop moves. Da-Rell also helped film the dance moves on camera so I could keep the video as a study guide. Thank you Da-Rell!

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.

Sarita is a professional dancer and dance teacher based in NYC. She is specialized in Contemporary Dance, Modern Dance (Graham technique), Ballet and Argentine Tango. The class will be designed on you individually, depending on what technique or goal you want to focus. You will improve the understanding of your body and physical possibilities as well as have fun with movement sequences at the end of each class.

About Sarita
I am a professional dancer and dance teacher based in NYC. I was born in Germany where I have been studying ballet since an early age, later moving to the Netherlands to study at the most renowned European school for Contemporary Dance, Codarts in Rotterdam. I continued my studies at the world famous Alvin Ailey School in NYC and upon completing the scholarship program joined Graham 2, the junior company of the Martha Graham Dance Company. Since then I have joined the Dardo Galletto Dance Company, ARIM Dance, Caterina Rago Dance Company and Alpha Omega Dance Company, being featured in soloist roles. Besides my work as contemporary/ modern dancer I am very passionate about Argentine Tango which I am dancing professionally as well.
Besides my work as artist, and being my own most demanding teacher, I have been teaching group and private cl
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.

My specialty is teaching tap as a musical instrument. For me, the movement serves the sound rather than a visual effect. No matter if you're a beginning, intermediate or advanced student, you will discover the potential of the human body to help internalize musical concepts such as phrasing, form, improvisation, and self-expression, as well as gain organic access to complex musical structures. Whether your focus is on building tap dance skills, seeking to connect body and mind in a profound and musical way, or are a musician who wants to become more connected and physically involved with the groove within - you are in the right place with me. The tap steps are merely tools to access your unique voice. My tap lessons combine technique, improvisation, and combinations with mindfulness, breathing, and body awareness exercises. Find the groove that is within you!

About Sandra
I am a tap dance musician, writer, and visual artist.
My performance credits include Thomas Marek's show NOLA, the sound art/tap performance Homöostep, the Tap Ahead Festival, and Daniel Luka's T.A.P. My current main project is Neosole, which explores tap as a music instrument, as a full member of the rhythm section, not just soloing as a gimmick on top of the music, but being fully integrated, comping and providing a foundation for the musical context.
I have been invited to teach at renowned facilities such as tanzhaus nrw, tap club, and Rebeltanz, and to be a tap dancer in residence at Thomas Marek's Studio Footprints.
My artistic works have been featured in publications such as Average Art, The Tap Love Tour Podcast, What Moves You, and Not Random Art.
I first started tap dancing at the age of 10 under the direction of my Mom.
From then on, I was influenced by many different teachers and mentors, such as Barbara Duffy, Sebastian Weber, Pia Neises, Derick Grant, Sarah Petronio, and Heather Cornell, to only name a few. I graduated from the tap dance apprenticeship S.O.N.T.I. with magna cum laude.
I consider myself a musician, and the tap shoes are my instrument. My style is deeply rooted in the aesthetic of jazz music and heavily shaped by playing in numerous jam sessions around Europe and New York City, however, my art transcends the boundaries of genres. It is merely a tool to create the most genuine and sophisticated expression possible. A catalyst to explore art as an extension of the human experience.
I call myself a tap dance musician because neither dance nor music could exist without the other. However, I don't move to look a certain way, I move to sound a certain way.
