I working closely with each of my students, helping them to better understand ballet steps and technique from the inside out. Dancers will build confidence through each lesson by learning how to properly use their body to build an solid foundation, so that the ballet technique becomes effortless enjoyment rather than a never-ending struggle.

I specialize in working with adult beginners :). I started dancing 7.5 years ago at 15 years old and I understand what an adult or teen beginning dancer needs to know in order to be safe, have fun, and make progress :). I hold a BFA in classical and modern dance performance from Adelphi University and I love to teach and choreograph fun classes. It can be very hard to find classes that will go above the beginner level as an adult dancer, so I want to support my students in a way that helps them continually progress as dancers.

I am a also an ACE certified personal trainer, so my advice and classes are backed by 7.5 years of dance experience as well as a knowledge of fitness and excersise science. I like to tailor programs to my students' needs and incorporate elements of fitness into the ballet training so that students can progress faster and grasp the fundamentals of movement before we do anything super hard.

About Kamila

I'm a professional dancer with experience in modern, ballet, and contemporary dance. I also took 3 years of dance composition (choreography) in college and I love to make fun and interesting combos for my students to work on in class :) I have 7.5 years of dance experience and 2.5 years of teaching

Stephen is Great. My kids had a blast.
Barbara M.
Stephen has been giving our teenager daughter weekly lessons in "J-pop" dancing. Even though his background does not include this particular style, he has done a great job of staying ahead of our daughter, and-even more importantly-encouraging and motivating her to keep at it. (Since dancing is one of the few exercises she will do willingly, this is key!) She looks forward to the weekly lesson and so do we.

"Wonderful person and teacher

I’m an actor who has to sing in 1-2 episodes of a new show I'm in, so I started taking voice with fawn because she came highly recommended by another actor I work with. I totally think she is great and I recommend her to any one who wants to improve their speaking or singing voice or become more confident in their performances. She also helps me with my script preparation and think she is a wonderful person and teacher."

"There aren’t enough good words to say about acting coach, Dennis Johnson, of Rollicking Productions. Personally, I have had the pleasure of working with Dennis for 5 years and his commitment, knowledge and ability to guide his students to top performance levels in the acting world is unbelievable. With Dennis’ help I was able to win for the State of NH two years in a row for the nationwide Poetry Out Loud competition, land several lead roles in community theater, gain my own teaching experience in his acting workshops, etc., but more importantly I gained a whole new level of confidence that I didn’t have before. Working with Dennis was one of the best decisions I've made and the skills that I learned from him still compliment everything I do today."

Something you should know is that there are very, very few people who look this good when they first learn how to dance!
