After 3 years of a extremely bad brake up with musical theatre. It was really nice to be back at it and Carolyn made me feel comfortable enough to actually take my first dance lesson in 4 years.
Paul H.
i have been working with Carolyn for the past couple of years and she is excellent. Clearly very skilled and a very experienced teacher. Very patient as well, especially when I have not had much time to practice. She totally understands I have work commitments that take priority.
I enjoy every lesson and I am so pleased that I can pick up music scores and play with confidence. I thoroughly enjoy each class.

My name is Deja!

Do you want to build your confidence? Command the attention on any dance floor? Prepare for an audition? Or simply brush up on some dance moves? I am the girl for you.

I have over 10 years of dancing under my belt, six of those years I've spent being a professional dancer. You may see me in: Apple's iPad 2 Commercial, So You Think You Can Dance Season 14, ShowTime at The Apollo, Volkswagen Car Show, America's Got Talent, Chris Brown Brown's "Party Video", etc.

I previously taught a class every Friday at City Dance in San Francisco. There is nothing more rewarding than witnessing a student thrive & knowing that I contributed to their growth in skill, confidence & overall presence when you walk into a room brings me so much joy & I can't wait to work with you!

Deja had her first lesson with my daughter today. Deja was great. Right on time; worked with my daughter literally through the last minute of her lesson. I could hear Deja giving direction and instruction, and she was very encouraging and supportive. My daughter really liked her, and is excited about the process. (whew!). Great job!
Myjah
I learned from Deja! 10 out of 10! She helped me become sharp in some movements and more feminine in others, the perfect blend! I witnessed her work with children too, she is great with people of all ages! Even when she couldn't do them all, she still helped me learn how to land my tricks! I love her! Thank you Deja!

"I enjoy my class every time I go. Rebecca is a fun teacher, even though she keeps me focused. We are always thinking outside the box on how to make class better for me personally. I like that she is flexible and cares about how I learn. One of the things I appreciate most is that she points out what I do well and what I should improve in, whereas some of my teachers in the past only focus on one or the other."

I throughly enjoy studying my homework, learning more about the new characters, while also understanding how to have a normal dialogue without forcing my emotions. I cannot wait for my next session with Donnabella. I would highly recommend her solely based on her expertise and kind hearted attitude to new-up-incoming actors. I will forever be appreciative of her time, patience, and amazing acting lessons."

"I have trained alongside Jennifer as a dancer and have seen her in action in the studio not only as the student but as the teacher. Her compassion, diligence, and dedication to sharing her own love of ballet with her students is admirable and shines through. She is dedicated to not only providing safe and polished technique and artistry but also to learning from her students and seeking out ways to improve herself.

Speaking as a peer, Jennifer's teaching style is a great hybrid between a technique-driven, traditional curriculum and a wholesome appreciation for the joy and spirit that keeps dance as a universal language. Students not only gain an understanding of the vocabulary but a safe space to develop discipline, strength and confidence."
