About Charly
I'm a professional dancer and I have trained in a variety of dance techniques since the age of six. Throughout my dance career I have become aware of the importance of cross-training for optimal conditioning of the body for the purpose of injury prevention.

I'm a certified Pilates instructor and I have more than seven years of experience as a Private Fitness Consultant, customizing my workout to the specific needs, goals and abilities of each individual client.
I created Pilates Fitness Fusion, which integrates elements from my years of dance, as well as from Yoga, Zena Rommett’s Floor Barre, Feldenkrais, Pilates and Gyrokinesis. I also draw from the fluid forms of Qi Gong, Tai Chi and Alexander Technique. The result is an incredibly diverse and specialized fitness program.

Pilates Fitness Fusion will help you to strengthen and scu
lpt your whole body, shed excess weight and address postural imbalances, so that you can be
FIT, HEALTHY and PAIN FREE!

*** Lesson Details ***
In order to improve each student’s overall conditioning, an equal focus is put on upper and lower body strength, flexibility, body alignment and balance.
My private sessions, as well as my group classes include key exercises of Pilates, Yoga and other strengthening and stretching techniques, which allows for a well-rounded and diverse training program.

Hey, Sasha speaking! I would be thrilled to share my passion for dance with you. I am trained in various styles including ballroom, ballet, bellydance, hip hop and aerial arts (aerial silk, hoop and pole). I have been teaching different subjects for 6 years with a focus in instructing ballroom for the last 4 years. I believe dance is a healing and liberating art and would love to help you find your flow. Not only is dance fun, but it will come in handy at parties and events, and is a great way to socialize. I am experienced with both kids ages 4 and up as well as adults, so please feel free to contact me, and we can begin an awesome journey.

I am now offering online group classes in various subjects as well. Subjects include Zumba, Bellydance, and Hip hop with more coming soon. Classes run weekday mornings and some weekends.

About Sara
Hello! I'm Sara!

I started dancing at the age of 3. I am well versed in Ballet, Modern and Jazz. I attended Joffrey San Antonio (2004) and Paul Taylor New York (2010) intensives.

While in high school I taught Ballet, Jazz, Pre-Pointe and Pointe classes to dancers age 3-14.

In 2011 I graduated from the University of Oklahoma with a Bachelor of Fine Arts in Ballet Pedagogy (which is the art or science of teaching).

Since moving to NYC 5 years ago I have been focused on performing with such dance companies as Exit 12 Dance Company (2011-2012) and Community Dance Project (2013-2014). While not dancing with specific companies I have choreographed and danced in two music videos.

I can't express my love for teaching enough! To know that I could help spark the passion of dance in a young person is extremely inspiring.

Please inc
lude your area and availability in your messages!

I would prefer to teach students with professional or aerobic goals. Social dancing is not one of my subjects.

About Beverly
In 2013 I gave up a longstanding career in Logistics and Imports to pursue my passion for fitness and education, and I have not looked back since. I enjoy helping others to learn and expand their horizons through language and movement. One of the reasons I became an ESL instructor is because I wanted to experience culture and diversity. I am truly blessed to have been given this wonderful opportunity to impart my own knowledge while learning from others.

I am certified as a teacher of English to speakers of other languages (TESOL) and English as a Foreign Language (TEFL). I am also ACE-Certified as a Personal Trainer and Group Fitness Instructor, specialized in Core Fitness, Senior Fitness Training and Functional Fitness. I train clients in their homes and online. Half of my day is dedicated to teaching ESL and the other half to f
itness training.

“I've tried to learn English for a long time and, though I learned a big amount of words , I wasn't able of having a short conversation with nobody. Teacher Beverly have been making a great job by identifying my difficulties and then working hard straight on it at abslutely enjoyable online classes. I'm really happy because in a few time I've improved my English skills as I've never did before, nevertheless I'm sure that there are so much to be learnt from her yet.”

My english is very poor, but beverly is great, I do not understand, she will say over and over again, let me understand. The most important, she makes you from simple to difficult little bit to master English grammar, not boring. At present, I have already said a lot of sentences. I'm very happy.thank you teacher 🌹

Huang is an exceptional instructor. He is patient, thoughtful and just has a lovely calming disposition. in terms of his instructional skills I would offer this: a gifted teacher is one who immediately lasers in on what subtle adjustments will have the biggest impact, and then, equally important, he is able to articulate/communicate to his student...how to successfully incorporate these changes. I took one lesson to try it out and now I am set to purchase ten more!!

I started martial arts in 2005, specifically in Long Fist Kung Fu under World Kickboxing Champion, Master Karl Romain. I trained at his school for a year and half and made it to purple sash. Unfortunately, I injured myself during training and could not continue. After a long road to recovery, I started to look for a martial art that did not have any forms (katas) and was strictly self-defense based. My research led me to Bruce Lee’s Jeet Kune Do. I read into its history and how the man himself, Bruce Lee, was at one time injured and gradually became a better martial artist than he ever was. I looked into who Bruce’s students were and one student caught my eye, a man named Ted Wong. Ted Wong was known for being Bruce’s last student but was widley recognized of how he moved like the man himself. Unfortunately, Ted Wong resided in California
and I had no funds to travel back and forth. I did further research and found a list of Ted Wong’s students. Luckily, there was one student and certified instructor by Ted Wong, located in New York state named Richard Torres. I come to find out that his Jeet Kune Do school was 63 miles away from where I was located. Nevertheless, I emailed him and made my first appointment. I still have that email. Did I drive those 63 miles to train with Richard Torres? You bet! Since August 2007, I have been a student of Sifu Richard Torres. In December 2014, I was promoted to Instructor and in May of 2016, I was given permission to teach on my own.
