Private Tap Dance Teacher

Before beginning the lesson, I ask the student what he or she wants. What does he or she specifically want to learn or gain from dance lessons? My lessons are completely tailored around my student's wants and needs. Dance is supposed to be a fun, relaxing form of expression, so I like to help my students express themselves through movement in a way that is comfortable and fun for them.

Private Tap Dance Teacher

Dance is dedicated to the youth in the community where children can have fun, express creativity, build self-confidence while at the same time learn the fundamentals of different styles of dance. Dancers will have the opportunity to develop technique and personal development that will lead them to grow as a performing artist. I truly believe that everyone should recognize their passion and follow their hearts and dreams.

I strive to continue the tradition of integrity, excellence, and passion of the arts where all dancers are thriving in the artistic community!

About Noreen

I started dancing at the age of 7 training in jazz, hip hop, lyrical, ballet and tap dancing. I participated in several dance competitions such as Shows Stopper and Star Power where I continue to strive and developed the passion for dance. I have a degree in Early Childhood Education and Child Psy

Ms. Noreen has got to be one of the best dance teachers around! As a result of taking her classes, I have become more knowledgeable in the field of dance, as well as a more confident person. She is a patient, kind, and understanding person, determined to help her students reach their full potential as dancers. I highly recommend taking her classes (which range from ballet, hip hop, jazz, and tap) if you're a beginner dancer, or even an experienced one wanting to hone your skills. You'll definitely progress as a dancer and perhaps make some new friends through class! :))

I've taken private lessons with Ms. Noreen for a while. The lessons helped improve my flexibility, core strength also my ability to dance and boost my confidence of dancing in front of an audience. I highly recommend these lessons

Chrystie is an amazing instructor! She is very enthusiastic, encouraging, and worked with my daughter's energy level. She used music appropriate to my daughter, and built up a routine over several weeks so my daughter could learn the parts. She made effective and efficient use of every minute of every lesson and appropriately pushed my daughter to learn, even though it was her first time taking tap lessons. I highly and ecstatically recommend Chrystie really to anyone because I am sure that fun, bubbly, energetic personality, combined with a high skill level, and excellent instructional strategies, can really help any student. Thank you again Christie!

Rachel is very student-centered. She focuses on what her students want to learn rather than a set curriculum. She also helps with their weak points as well. I highly recommend working with Rachel.
Alan
Rachel is a great teacher who really knows her stuff and wants to help her student. Her lessons are always thought out and her critique is always on point. She allows for enough creative freedom to be able to give you notes afterwards that enable you to build on them because she wants you to achieve your potential. She really cares and will help you wherever she can whether its for an upcoming audition or polishing your resume. I highly recommend her teaching.
Janice
Rachel is an amazing teacher! She helped me with a self tape and was so amazing! She not only coached me on the acting of the scene, but also in how to make sure the technical side of the self tape was as effective as possible. I highly recommend her!

Hello! I love to teach and share the art of dance with others. I am great with children as well as teen and adult beginners. My goals are to pass down my knowledge of dance, and to give my students feelings of joy, accomplishment, and growth.
My teaching style has patience and focuses on teaching dance in a way that is healthy for the physical body for an non-injury journey learning and practicing the dance craft, as well as giving and guiding freedom of expression.
***I bring a ballet barre and a roll-out dance floor for learning.***
I have a BFA in Dance and 5 years of teaching experience. My 21 years of being a student, performer, and teacher has provided me with a diversity of expertise. I look forward to teaching and sharing the art of dance with you!

"Ferlyn is professional and accomplished yet she condescends to me as a novice iin such a patient, warm and kind way. I never realized how much i could learn. I had the idea that i would suffer under the tutelage of a harsh dance taskmaster that you learn about in movies and books. NOT SO; i look forward to my class which is such a pleasure!"

"Carolyn was a tremendous teacher. I just wanted to understand the basics and she was able to provide an excellent foundation. I think that it's likely that I'm much (much) older than the usual student that's interested in tap, and Carolyn managed my own limitations with skill and good humor. Oh, and besides being a great teacher, she's an amazing tap dancer!"
