How to move around like a hungry for space dancer. My teachers used to tell me to Eat Up Space. We will learn how to make our own dances. Vocabulary and Improv, Dynamic, Structure and Form. Finding what it means to write a story or poem with your body's movement, the space it is inhabiting and of course, idea.

About Gina
As of May 10th, I am in New York City. I will be accepting new students for the summer months either in NYC or online.

I am studying Music in The Mills College Music Department and Center for Contemporary Music; in pursuit of my second MFA, specializing in Improvisation. My main instrument is Voice; I also study piano. That will add to my BFA in Dance from The Juilliard School, an MFA in Dance and my other fancy pants pedigrees!! I teach Music Improvisation as well as many other aspects of music and the list of subjects below.

I graduated from Juilliard in dance and pursued modern dance and all sorts of theatre, dance/theater, music/theater, experimental, modern and classical theater, post modern and modern dance. I have taught children and grown ups for many years. I have a strong performing career and love the way teaching ke
eps me in a giving and learning place.

*** Lesson Details ***
With beginning students I am very laid back and patient and believe strongly that in the play of games and experiments technique will develop and manifest. As the student becomes more advanced I become more demanding as do the materials. As an acting teacher I have an advanced capacity to take students along all the way to professional and beyond. I am a member of the Actors Studio, the performing unions and studied since childhood at ACT and then all over the world including The National in London.
In Singing and Piano I can be valuable to the beginning level and will want to send them to another teacher as they progress beyond my ability.
In dance I have a wide knowledge and can teach several forms as well as history and materials. In Juilliard I specialized in historical dance of the French Court which is also known as pre-ballet. At present I am studying Tango and other ballroom forms and can teach the beginning levels as well as help choreograph for weddings or events. Of course I can also teach Ballet and many forms of Modern Dance.I adore teaching dance composition. To help a dance student make dances is very very fulfilling to me. I work with other media to inspire, using painting and painters, poetry, sound and dream, ideas and desires. All to contribute in making a dance.
In Visual Arts I can teach Abstract Painting, Installation and Performance Art. I have taught children and adults and have a way of bringing the body's expression into the act of making visual art that I and my students find very successful.

*** Studio Equipment ***
I have supplies and space. Visual Art students need to contribute to materials by finding or purchasing whatever they like and adding to the mix. My students are welcome to use what I have here and I am always adding materials. Many people throw away materials that are perfectly good for art making so keep your eyes open and you'll find all kinds of good things. Visual Art students need to book a 2 hour minimum and I will lower the price if you just let me know you need it.

*** Travel Equipment ***
just a space to work in - we can create a work space out of any space.

*** Specialties ***
In dance I teach classical ballet principles for beginners or those who are returning and want to work carefully and privately. I teach from the tradition of Alfredo Corvino's principles of relationship to organic forms and structures for sound development. I studied with Mr Corvino for years and continue to study with Ernesta Corvino.
For acting I teach a combination of classical acting technique with American sense memory and relaxation skills. I am well versed in the teachings of Lee Strasberg and then spent time in London to 'fill in the cracks' of my training with analytical skills as well as the various european influences that the Royal National embrace.
I teach creative discovery in combination with classical devices so the student can discover their own artistry while learning actual classical devices for accomplishing specific goals.

Gina is great! My 14 year old daughter loved her. She helped her work on several techniques and scenes in preparation for an audition. I would definitely recommend her for various levels of experience.
She loves the craft and it shows in her teaching. Shes tough but so loving and enthusiastic.

I have had the opportunity to learn acting with Gina and it has been great so far. When I signed up for the lessons, I signed up with Gina because of her credentials as I never had an encounter with her. From my first class itself she has taught me a lot about acting specially stage acting and that too with great enthusiasm. I now feel like pursuing it further. She is quite knowledgeable specially in her field and every moment that you are in the class with her, you are learning something new. I would highly recommend her, doesn't matter if you are just getting into the field or trying to set your advanced level stage, her talents will teach you something new that would take you to the next level. I hope you can take advantage of learning from a Great Artist like Gina.
P.S. She is a great Dancer and a great Musician.

Good Luck!

I've been teaching ballroom dances for a few years . Within the first few lessons, you'll be able to learn couple of basic moves and start dancing with different kind of music. As time goes on you'll be able to learn more fun moves and go further in technique and have fun when you dancing) I specialize in ballroom dances as well as in wedding dance. I love working with students of all ages and experience levels and I can't wait to meet you!

About Olga
I was dancing and competing in Ballroom dances for many years and i learned that dancing can be very fun and help you to relax. Or it could be very complicated if you decide to reach certain level. But no matter how old you are and what experience you had, it's possible to become a dancer and enjoy it alone or with a partner every minute of your life. And trust me, from the moment you will be able to do first steps of rumba/waltz or any other dances- you won't stop!
Just tell me your goals and we will try to achieve them.

Olga taught us an amazing first wedding dance that she also choreographed for us. She combined Rumba and Foxtrot elements – with leans, dips and even a lift – into one unique dance that impressed (and definitely surprised) our friends and family at the reception. Neither of us had ever done any formal dancing before, but Olga got us to a proficient level in a very short time. Besides being a talented teacher, Olga is also very funny, as well as kind, and will make you feel at ease as you begin to dance, no matter your skill or comfort level. Highly recommended!

Are you not sure which foot is your left and which is your right? Do you watch dancers on TV and think, "Oh, I could SO do that!" Let's find your inner dance diva! I am a Dance Vision International Association certified instructor, a professional member of the National Dance Council of America, and a professional member of USA Dance. I love all styles of partnership dance, and currently compete professionally in American Rhythm, as well as coach nationally ranked competitive amateur dancers. I take pride in every couple I teach, from wedding couples planning their first dance, mother/son or father/daughter dances, to those who just want to develop their social dancing skills, or those who want to perform and compete. Each couple is unique! My motto: Life is better when you're dancing.

About Kristin
I first twirled around a ballroom during my freshman year at the University of Toledo when I joined the UT Ballroom Dance Society. This foray into partnership dancing fulfilled years of dreams previously squashed when my mom told me that ballroom dance "is for old people" (an opinion Mom quickly changed after experiencing the energy and enthusiasm of a collegiate ballroom competition).

I taught for 2 years after college (2006-2008) but didn't get serious about my dance career until 2014. Since then, I have purused certifcation through Dance Vision International Association, and have taken training with multiple world and US champions across the country.

My ultimate goal is to help every student experience the pure, unadulterated joy that comes when nothing else in the world matters except the music, the movement, and your partner.

That was once me, I went into college with never having any sort of technical training and ended up graduating with UNLV Department of Dance's Outstanding Performer Award. So I learned my style of movement from both outside and inside the studio which will allow me to bring the best of both worlds to you as an upcoming dancer and give you versitility in movement and choreography.

I have experience training, teaching, choreographing, and performing all throughout Las Vegas, as well as collegiate dance experience in performing in New York and South Korea with a select, elite group of dancers. I am trained in the techniques of and teach hip hop, contemporary, jazz, lyrical, improv, choreography and modern.
