Professional Ballerina and over 20 years of experience teaching classical ballet to children to adults.

My approach is to understand your needs and goals so I can develop a lesson plan that’s appropriate for your level and ambitions. 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's a great instructor that makes you instantly feel at ease. Dance class was fun!
George T.
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.

"Dax was my first acting coach. Her experience and approach to our work were amazing. She showed me many skills that helped with developing my character. All of her advice was really beneficial in understanding my part as well as gave me an in-depth insight into acting. I cannot wait to continue our work! I can recommend Dax's coaching to everyone on may different levels!"

"I worked with Randy on my speaking voice. In just 5 weeks my voice for videos and presentations was much better and I had a plan for further improvements. He's easy to talk to, non-judgemental and provides sage advice. Randy was good at prioritizing things for me to work on, which made it easy to make progress quickly. He split tasks into those that required class time and those that I could teach myself. I'm leaving with specific exercises and books to read for self-improvement."

Acting Tips: What's in your Toolbox?

As with any profession, actors have tools. Just as a doctor needs a stethoscope or a fireman needs a hose, there are certain items an actor must keep in their toolbox. I usually start classes or lessons by asking my new students or clients what they think these tools might be. Sometimes, the answer is very literal ("Script!"), and other times abstract ("Passion!"). None of these is a wrong answer. Being an actor or artist is subjective and everyone's process is different and valid. But t …

5 Movie Monologues for Men to Practice Your Skills

Good monologues are hard to find. They are even harder to find when we are talking about film. Film is a very fast moving medium. We, as an audience, have been trained to expect to see something new every few seconds. Live theatre, however, has enjoyed a long and enriching relationship with the sustained attention of the monologue. Here, we are just going to focus on movie monologues for men, and how they help the actor hone their skills. First, we need to define the thing we are looking …
