I will cater to what each individual needs, working with dance material you already know teach you choreography to achieve the following:
-provide personalized feedback to help improve technical and artistic growth.
- give tools to improve and deepen your understanding of technique
- explain how to connect your expressiveness with your technique
My style is very supportive and direct. I believe that to improve as a dancer you need personal feedback and hard work. I am very passionate about sharing what I know to help other dancers reach their goals.
I have taught Master Classes and Intensive Workshops in the Paul Taylor style throughout the nation, as well as teaching Vaganova Ballet at the Joffrey Ballet School. I have taught in numerous public schools through teaching residencies with Rioult Dance Company and Education In Dance. I believe these experiences have taught me how to assess individuals quickly and provide clear feedback in a positive and supportive way.
My teaching style is energetic, and focused on the personal experience each dancer is having, while giving direct and clear feedback. My goal is to help students reach their artistic
Private lessons can be catered toward each individual. Either for an upcoming audition, feedback on solo or ensemble choreography, to help personalize technical corrections and to help push technique to a higher level, or for non dancers to help understand movement and feel comfortable in a beginning class.

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.

I love dance because it gives me a way to express my emotions and it gives me confidence to be in control of my body in a way that only dance can make me feel. Dance also is a way of making music visual which is a wonderful form of art. And of course...it is so much fun!

Hi there! My name is Aqeela (or Ms. Kiki for kids) and I am a professional dancer with over 20 years of experience. I have lived in LA and worked professionally in the industry. My dance credits include Nick Cannon, Beyonce, Sean Paul, and Kat de Luna. I have appeared on the Ellen show as well as Hulu. Aside from dance, I also have extensive experience teaching children. I went to school for Early Childhood Education and have worked as a Daycare teacher, Gymboree teacher, and Kindergarten. I have started my own dance team for kids in every city I have lived in. Can't wait to meet you!
Through Calo Gitano, Aqeela met artists from Spain such as Miguel Vargas, Carmen Ledesma, Lydia Caballo, and Daniela Tugues. After a year of studying Flamenco with Calo Gitano, she spent the summer of 2018 at the National Institute of Flamenco studying under Joaquin Encinias. During this time, Miguel Vargas had convinced her that she should move to Seville and train to become a bailaora. So she bought a one way ticket for Spain and in August she found herself studying intensively under Miguel Vargas, Ursula and Tamara Lopez, Lorena Franco, Ana Morales, and Alicia Marquez. Now, in her second year of studying flamenco, Aqeela knows more than ever that she wants to spend her entire life studying and learning this beautiful and passionate form of expression. Her dream is to one day open up her own school where she teaches children a variety of styles they can use to express themselves.

It was amazing. I learned so much as an educator and those kids left the cAmp so proud and eager to learn more about dance because of her. Oh ya and she also led them to design a dance for a showcase for their parents and community.
By far the best dance instructor I have ever worked with and cannot wait to work with her again. When my son grows up I will definitely be reaching out to her so she can teach him the moves.
