Julia is an exceptional dancer and teacher. She was so patient with my little Damian. He already feels more comfortable, and confident than he had in the past classes. His posture, and his turns are way more crisp now. The adjustments she gave really made him get it. Julia is already a gem.

Teresa is a very knowledgeable and talented teacher! I have learned so many new techniques with sewing and clothing design thanks to her! She is very patient, kind, and dedicated to making sure her students acquire the skills they need to be successful. She thoroughly explains the projects we are working on as well as gives a clear demonstration on any project we are working on. Her in home studio is beautiful! It is quiet, clean, and organized. I truly enjoy my visits there! I’m very lucky that I found Teresa through Take Lessons and I’m so thankful to have her as my sewing guru!
Paige L.
Theresa was amazing is all I can say. My daughter needed a choreographed ballet program in three days and she pulled it together and made extra time to fit her in so she could perfect it. I should say my daughter has not done ballet since the start of the pandemic. I am so thankful for her.
Alec S.
Teresa is an incredibly knowledgeable and considerate teacher! We took ten Salsa lessons with her, coming in with no dancing experience and leaving feeling comfortable and confident showing off a myriad of awesome moves! We would highly recommend her!

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.

About Sasha

"A truly talented and amazing teacher!

We learned a wedding dance from Kelly and coming from a guy with two left feet, she did an awesome job guiding us through and teaching us cool choreography to make us look good! Kelly is extremely professional and takes her time understanding what you want to accomplish and teaches at a great pace where you learn while continuing to move forward. Each lesson progressed very nicely while we learned in her home studio. It was a very comfortable space and we nailed down exactly what we were aiming to do. We learned three types of dance: ballroom, tap, and a swing/bollywood hybrid. Kelly guided us through each and made sure we were comfortable and happy in the end. She even cut the three songs together for us! I would highly recommend Kelly as she has a warm heart, great attitude, and is a wonderful teacher!"

"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."
