Emma is a wonderful teacher. She was genuine and gentle when giving feedback. She was very relatable to my daughter who is 13 and made her feel completely at ease. My daughter learned a lot in one lesson and thoroughly enjoyed it.
AriDy Nox
Emma is an incredible performer, artist, song-writer, and educator! She is incredibly patient, kind, welcoming, and warm. She is extremely talented and attentive, which results in invaluable knowledge being imparted on a constant basis and encouraging critique on areas where one is more challenged.

Worth every penny!
Britney A
Emma is a great and patient acting teacher. While my other teachers rarely dived into my characters' objectives, Emma never fails to work with me on character development, script analysis, projection, breathing, and stage presence. I learned so much from her, I recommend her for everyone.

If you are looking to learn Salsa, Merengue, or Bachata--You have come to the right place!

As you work with me you will become more and more comfortable dancing so that you are ready for the fiesta!

I began my dance studies in Puerto Rico with traditional Bomba Y Plena. Currently, I teach latin dance with several NYC based companies.

About Ra

Hola! My name is Ra. I am a dancer, poet, and educator. I specialize in teaching conversational Spanish and Dance (Salsa, Merengue, Bachata, Flamenco). I am a native Spanish speaker. Originally from Puerto Rico, I grew up between PR and New York City. I graduated from The New School University

Ra is so great. She is patient and really knows her stuff. Definitely flexible in scheduling and she is so great with teaching my daughter.
Arianna L.
I elected to choose an online Spanish teacher for my daughter Arianna who is nine years old - after unsuccessful locating a local Spanish speaking class/teacher. Haven't had any experience with online teachers, I asked Take Lessons to recommend a Spanish native speaker from Puerto Rico. I needed to find someone who understands and is very familiar with the pronunciation of the Latin dialect. Ra's focus is conversational language; however, she was more than willing to take on the challenge of starting from the beginning with the basics, such as the alphabet, number, months, etc. and building into conversational sentences with Arianna. She is extremely easy to interact with, soft-spoken, and processes a genuine love of teaching. My daughter looks forward to their weekly meetings while embracing her Latin roots. We are immensely pleased with Ra. We would highly recommend her without reservation. Sincerely, The Lopez Family
Ra is great!

I offer the unique combination of the magical memory of our body and the imagination of our sub-conscious.
Our imagination must enliven the world from the page. The mere ink must be transformed into living, breathing life; through our imagination. Not in an ordinary way, but from the depth of our sub-conscious that brings the world so true to life that our five senses respond to it as if it’s real.
And our incredible body.
Our body that remembers everything. Every joy and every trauma, from before the time we understood consciousness or developed memory. our body remembers so much that it is an endless supply for our art. Any part you come across, any scene, any moment ... your body has known that. It has been there. We don’t remember, but our bodies do.
I offer the unique combination of the two !

About Deshik

"Grace is phenomenal! She's not only a nice person but she's serious about ballet. She encouraged me to push beyond my limitations and I'm excited about my next lesson!"

"Rebecca has been the most helpful coach I have ever worked with! Some of what she has guided me in was tricky to do online but she always finds a way to make activities work. It is a fun class, and I can tell my skills are growing a lot from working with her.

We've been doing a lot of work on accent training that is going well as she can pick up on things I didn't know existed; as well as helping me work through the little things you wouldn't think about in commercial and monologue work; as well as basic concepts that I needed more practice in.
All around great instruction."

"My 8 year old daughter has now completed two private lessons with Ana. We both thrilled with Ana as a teacher and an individual. Ana is a professional dancer and she is simply wonderful. She is patient yet professional. Ana knows how to get the best out of your child and there has been immediate progress already. I highly recommend Ana if your child (or yourself) is seeking to improve their ballet skills."

"Christine is amazing! She is one of the best improv people I have ever seen. Her ability to transform the audience to watch her every gesture is magical! She is a gifted instructor with a loving, caring, down to earth attitude. Quite honestly, I cannot get enough of watching her on stage! I wish I could learn all her skills so I could be half as awesome at improv as she is."

Becoming an Actor with No Experience: Is it Possible?

Dreaming of making it big on screen or on stage, but worried you don't have the right amount of experience? Read on as teacher Matthew H. shares his advice...    While becoming an actor may seem extremely difficult in and of itself, without any experience it may even feel nearly impossible. However, what we often fail to realize is that the process alone of becoming an actor is filled with lessons that add to our overall experience and skill set. In fact, there's actually no such t …
