I have been teaching dance for over 10 years. In that time I have found that, regardless of what style you are learning, everything is made of a few fundamental principals and components specific to that style. There are only so many ways you can move your feet and body. By understanding these principals & components, you can then put them together in any order with different style to create different dances. By laying the proper foundation, students have an easier time following choreography, learning to apply their own style, and even keeping up with a class. Once a dancer has a foundation to work up on, I introduce new concepts in layers to help dances feel better and develop a nicer aesthetic.

Great!! She does a great job with breaking down information to make it easier to understand and learn the content. She wants you to be successful in learning the material. If there is something you do not understand,she will go over it until you comprehend the information. Janalee is a true teacher because she is very patient and understanding when it comes to your learning style.
Edward
I must say Janalee is a phenomenal tutor. Her lesson plans are well structured and well thought out. Before studying under her tutelage , I was extremely nervous about taking my GRE. Not only did I pass my exam, I surpassed my own expectations.

Thank you Janalee, you played a pivotal role of my success !!!!

Online Belly Dancing Teacher

I am a classically trained dancer with 20 years experience in performance. I have always been passionate about historic costumes and was introduced to historic dance while getting my degree from Ga. State University. I am currently the director of the Atlanta Historic Dance Company. I've performed, taught and choreographed for performances on stage, at historic events and in the film industry for the last 10 years.
Historic Dance can run the gamut between beginning level dances up to professional level performance. I can tailor your lesson to fit your needs. The most popular lesson at the moment is the 1920's Charleston. I can also offer lessons in popular social dances from the Renaissance up through the 1960's.

I have had the honor of knowing Kat Nagar for over 5 years. She is a most patient teacher, teaching me everything from 18th-century court dance to 1920s swing.
I highly recommend her as a resource to teach all levels.

"Layla has been great to work with. Very enthusiastic and encouraging. Her instructions were clear and she was very patient to work with me until I understood how to do everything. She explained the why of things so I would know the reason for everything which is very important to me. She was very accommodating when my schedule required a temporary change in our lesson schedule. It is obvious that she loves belly dancing and is very good at it. She customizes the style and kind of music to suit the student's taste. I Highly recommend her as a teacher."

I really like her approach: No judgement, focus on deliberate movements and is very methodical. I was not looking for anything quick and dirty, but I definitely wanted to make sure that I learned. And, I did. Posture, arm movements, transitions. I am so excited and am very happy to have made the package purchase."
