Mary is very kind, friendly, understanding, and polite. She is extremely encouraging, and believes in her students! It is usually very hard for me to push past my limits, but with Mary I felt much more confident to do so! But she knows when to tell you to stop. She is very clear, and I learned a lot from her.

She’s really awesome and friendly. My kids definitely were so excited and happy for how she taught them and her enthusiasm to teach new skills. She was right on time to the appointment and Mary takes her role seriously in terms of COVID protection. Looking forward to continuous lessons :)

I've had a great time with Ellen! She was able to create and teach me choreographies in multiple styles to a variety of songs that I wanted to dance to.

I've had prior dance experience, but I've always struggled with getting into character. Ellen really gave me space and encouragement to improve in that area.

She also made sure I was able to work around previous injuries. She always took me through a thorough warm up, checked in with how my body was feeling, and adapted movements if necessary.

I am a teacher of 13 years and I love what I do!

Ballet is a great workout in addition to being the foundation for all technical dance. It's a great place to start and always to come back to. Ballet has many benefits to offer students at every level, which is why even Pro football players take it!

Through ballet lessons with me, you will stabilize find better balance and control, strengthen, tone, and elongate your muscles, have increased flexibility and mobilization, improve your coordination and confidence, and much more.

My ballet lessons cover basics of posture, placement, alignment, and turnout. We begin practicing essentials such as positions, plies, tendus, pirouettes and more. Once the student shows proficiency in these basics, we move into more advanced movement and choreography. There is strong focus on technical precision and skill to ensure students are learning the correct foundation so they get the maximum benefit out of their ballet lessons. ...

Private Ballet Teacher

I have been teaching dance for over 12 years. My students have won many competitions and some of them even passed tough exams to enter Dance Academy programs, colleges and universities. I am very passionate about teaching dance and finding the right "key" to every student. I believe that all of us are different in the way we process new information, the way we learn, memorize, get motivated, and progress. I believe in order to get maximum result in such complex craft as dance there has to be a balance between having fun and having discipline. Each class has a set structure, short-term goals, and long-term goals, and of course, we do have fun. I love my profession, I love teaching and figuring out how to achieve the greatest result with that particular student by applying aspects of sports psychology on top of standard methods, and I love seeing my students fall in love with the craft and achieve great results.

I graduated from Moscow State College of Arts in 2008 as a choreographer. In the United States, I studied different dance styles (hip-hop, house, tap, vogue, jazz-funk

I have been training with Margo for 6 months now and the progress is amazing. I wanted to learn how to break dance but didn't expect much... I can already do hand stands, head stands, whole bunch of freezes, tornadoes (slow but still!), backspin, coffee grinder, footwork, kip up. I am super close to power moves at this point - I can feel I can get a windmill and a swipe this month. To say I'm excited is an understatement! It is so exciting to realize that you are capable of so much more than you think! She teaches me to believe in myself and be persistent. I love it!
Kate
I didn't expect that I'll start to dance hip hop so quick. I've been dancing ballet since I was 3, now I'm 14. I never had any hip hop training. Transition to hip hop was very challenging in the beginning but within a month of training with Margo I started dancing hip hop very well, better than most of my friends who've done it for a long time! Thank you Margo!!!
Penny
Margo is a wonderful teacher! She corrected my technique in no time, helped me figure out why I just couldn't do certain things (pirouettes). I love working with her, learning from her, she is very patient with me and always finds the right words to motivate me. I am very pleased

Chrystie is an excellent teacher! She is very kind and is able to communicate exactly what she is doing and how to do it. Some dancers can dance but not communicate what they're doing, but Chrystie is so good at that. She is working with me at my level, encouraging and giving me just the right amount of challenge without my feeling like it's impossible for me. I love taking lessons with Chrystie!

"Kristen is an amazing teacher! She has such a wonderful way of inspiring a hard work ethic. She corrects with kindness when needed, and maintains a delightfully positive attitude throughout the lesson. Coming back to ballet in adulthood, as a former professional dancer— I had a lot of anxiety and trepidation about returning. Kristen has been incredibly supportive, understanding, enthusiastic, and compassionate; she guides with joy, intelligence and empathy, in a highly articulate and informative manner. I recommend her to anyone and everyone; take her class, you’ll be thrilled, I promise."
