Sasha was wonderful to work with!

Sasha was very easy to work with and picked a just right starting point for me! I look forward to good things to come!
Dan
Sasha has been absolutely amazing. She makes online dance classes surprisingly fluid and forms a real connection with her students remotely. As someone with a serious lack of rhythm and coordination, I can say I am enjoying myself and learning a great deal! Sasha has been choreographing my wedding dance and has gone above and beyond to cut the song just right as well as rehearsing all the moves until they are perfect. Beyond that she is teaching us the fundamentals and giving us a lot to think about and practice on our own, which is highly appreciated! Would strongly recommend Sasha as your next dance instructor.

I am a contemporary dancer eager to share how I got into and dug depose into my emotions and expressed that through dance. Through personal expression, improvisation, and unique choreography techniques I am able to bring out each individual dancers personality and help them shine that in their dancing.

About Bridget

I have trained extensively in my styles but feel my most honest self within contemporary dance. I hope to help students achieve proper technique, respect and all around a self enjoyment through the craft. It is a chaotic and confusing feeling when you don’t have an outlet to express yourself or eve

This teacher is amazing.
She is super patient to children, wide range of ages.
It would be hard to handle different ages at the same time, but she is so experienced about this.
She also cares about safety and PT’s attention to learning progress.

Great teacher
Rebecca
Keomi is amazing. She is an excellent teacher: She can adapt to even the most beginner of students, gives great instructions/cues and is bright, fun, and positive all while remaining grounded with an eye for detail.
Ellen
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.

I teach many styles of dance - Ballet, Tap, Jazz, Scottish Highland, and Ballroom (including International and American styles).

I have been teaching ballet and pointe for over 40 years to both recreational and serious dancers of all ages and levels. My continued love for dance stems from a love of nurturing young people and building confidence through dance. Students who are committed to leaning, apply themselves, and have a great work ethic can rise to the next level of their dance training. My classroom is positive and upbeat place where we will work on flexibility, strength, and clean technique.

"Jenny to the Rescue!

My daughter's wedding was weeks away, and I had never been able to dance a step. For that important occasion, however, I wanted to be able to at least survive a little waltz. My daughter and I selected a short piece, connected with Jenny, and she took it from there. In three lessons, she taught us the basics, provided some great pointers, a little choreography, and even taught us a few impressive moves to throw into the mix. The results exceeded everyone's expectations, and brought not only resounding applause at the reception, but also sentimental tears to many eyes. With Jenny's help, I came further in dancing than ever before in such short time in any subject.

An extremely patient, caring, and capable instructor, Jenny always listens carefully to your questions and ideas. Then, it's fascinating to watch her pause a moment, process the issue, and come back with a solution that's exactly right. Without her, a great moment and memory for my daughter and me might never have happened."

"My 12 y.o. daughter has been taking private lessons with Briana. My daughter has no prior experience but would like to join a group class some day and Briana has been great coming up with an appropriate lesson plan and providing a foundation to start with so she will be comfortable joining a group class as well. Briana is very enthusiastic and my daughter has really enjoyed the classes. I can tell she has learned a lot & will benefit a great deal from these lessons. We definitely plan to continue the lessons and I highly recommend Briana to anyone seeking dance lessons."
