Hip hop is associated with moving to the rhythm, looking cool, being flashy, and unique and unconventional. Thats how it looks from the outside. However, from the inside it looks more like a release of inhabitioned movement, a fusion of different perspectives and disciplines, as well as a oneness shared between body, mind, and music. Forever shifting as it must. I have studied styles of dance that I teach to all my students that lets them learn other styles easily. I can teach anybody how to create their own dance moves. I provide them with the proper perspective to begin to understand dance moves they see on television or when out dancing. Want to learn how to move with rhythm and style? Then i can teach you, no problem!
I am a hip-hop/house/contemporary dancer with professional/classical training, an academic background, and a passion for taking my students to the next level. I received my degrees in Dance, Psychology and Philosophy, and use these fields as a framework to help direct and assist students in learning how to train their bodies and minds in many different disciplines. I've lived in many cities and always learned each city's dance styles. I can teach: popping, locking, waving, tutting, liquid, sliding, house, footwork, breakdancing, acrobatics, choreography, improvisation, and theatrical. I can help you build your own style. A style that specifically pertains to you. I'll show you how to incorporate concepts, themes, and ideas, to tell a story, or to just express yourself through movement and rhythm. I love teaching, and I love that look i
n a persons face after they get something that was tough. I love helping them understand what they could do differently to yield different results. If you want to learn hip hop, house, or fusion- I am a very patient yet motivating teacher. I can be strict at times, but only when needed ;-)
Classes focus on ideas and concepts as well as ways to act them out. We learn how to utilize balance, emotion, finesse, attention, and focus to transition between movements. Exploring performing with character, style, technique, and form to develop their own individual philosophies on movement. We dissect different instruments and rhythms to experience them in different parts of the body. Integrating hip hop, ballet, modern, house, and martial arts into one cohesive style. My goal is to foster artistic growth and to help you surprise yourself!
Da-Rell is a very knowledgable and sensitive teacher, who worked with our son who definitely needs this special attention. We are sorry our son doesn't live in Da-Rell's area.

Da-Rell and I hit it off right away. In less than a day we already had a dance lesson planned, and we got right to it. Da-Rell has groove and is the number one recommended hip-hop dance trainer from the Take Lessons company. We went over moon walking, sliding / gliding, and other modern hip-hop moves. Da-Rell also helped film the dance moves on camera so I could keep the video as a study guide. Thank you Da-Rell!

I was born and raised in upstate New York dancing at competitive studios where I have had all of my technique and performance training. After moving to college in 2015, I decided to begin sharing my dance knowledge and inspiring all students.

Lastly, I have begun expanding my knowledge and choreography by choreographing the Mrs. North Carolina International pageant for the past three years.
Within my classes, students will expect an emphasis on stretching, strength, technique, and choreography. I aspire
to inspire students to be the very best version of themselves and express their feelings through movement.
I strive to help students reach their personal goals and am excited for this journey!
I tailor the sessions to the participants desired result and personality. I am very flexible, open, reliable and will use both of our experiences to create a space for exploration and celebration. I always make sure participants feel comfortable and empowered. I have years of experience in different genres of dance, choreography, directing, production and much more and as a result I have a lot of insight and joy to offer.

Keomi has a lot of positive energy and is sensitive to the the skill levels of her students so she tailors her classes to give just enough challenge while building on students’ strengths and experiences.
Keomi gives a great cardio workout where you really sweat yet the class is so fun that you don’t notice how hard you are working!
You WILL learn many classic hip hop moves which Keo strings together to make a sexy/cool but accessible choreography. You come out of class feeling blissed - both for the vigorous workout and for accomplishing the dance moves! This is a great class for all levels.

Dance is an amazing gift used to express how we feel and what we believe. It tells a story, oftentimes our own. I believe in teaching the art of how to freely express yourself through telling a story with every move. Whether you are a trained dancer or a beginner, you have the right to express yourself through creative movement and I can help you with that.
I am a lover of dance. I believe dance builds confidence, strength, courage and discipline. I have danced all my life and for the past 18 years have had the privilege of leading two dance ministries. One for 7 years and the other for the past 11 years. I believe dance is one of our greatest forms of expression. It is our voice. Whether in a group setting or a solo piece you have the right to be as loud as you want or as quiet as you like.
I specialize in teaching others to find that voice on the inside of them and create from that place. While technical dance is absolutely phenomenal, it is not required to be a student of mine. I have been known to open up the voice and set free many trained in ballet, jazz, tap, African, hip hop and more.
Never be afraid to create and I know I am the one to help you go beyond what you ever coul

My main objective is to have a fun time with you while we work on your dance moves and your confidence. The class can be customized depending on your goal: learning routines, fitness or dancing in heels. All levels and ages are welcome!
I am a professional dancer from Switzerland. I started dancing at the age of 12 and started teaching my first hip hop classes at the age of 18. I have opened showes for R’n’B singers Genuwine, Mario Winans and Rapper Erick Sermon. I have performed in many showes for other choreographers and appeared in different music videos. Teaching private dance classes is the best way to respond to every student’s individual needs and immediately see the results and improvements. I love dance because it gives me a way to express my emotions and it gives me confidence to be in control of my body in a way that only dance can make me feel. Dance also is a way of making music visual which is a wonderful form of art. And of course...it is so much fun!
I’ve been teaching beginner /intermediate hip hop/ Streetstyle classes for 5 years. All ages welcome. Lessons are customized to each student depending on your goals and needs.

I like to make dancing fun and easy. Anyone can dance! Also if you plan on dancing socially I like to help prepare you for all social dance settings so no matter what you will confidant and prepared!
Dancing has always been a passion of mine and I love to share that passion! I love teaching dance any level and skill. Are you ready to take the next step? If you want to dance socially or just for yourself, be better on stage or for any reason, I can help you get to your goals! If you have any questions please let me know!
"Da-Rell was terrific with my 5 yr old son. He really knows how to work with kids, keep their attention and make it fun while they learn. It was exactly
the kind of class we were looking for."
"She is amazing! Takes her time eaching me the moves and really breaks the choero down for me. I would take her again!"
"Jared is a great dancer and instructor! I don’t have any prior dance experience. The 1-on-1 sessions have helped me build confidence and foundational skil
ls. He’s incredibly patient. When I can't follow a sequence, he has a way of breaking things down. Jared is always working on new choreography. There's a lot of variety in his style, and it's a ton of fun. Highly recommend!"
