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 Dance Teacher

I got my start in dance at the age of three and was classically trained in a dance school as well as in my academic school. I had my first choreography project in high school and immediately fell in love with the ability to create a story through movement. For some extra training and exposure, I began to teach at a separate dance school in addition to my high school team and my dance school I had been competing with since first starting my career. While I’m college, although I did not major in dance, I joined a semi professional company that allowed me to continue my art along with my studies and used it as an avenue for expression and self exploration. After a 20 year career, I so look forward to giving you/your children the gift that has continued to give to me for so many years.

Hi!

Here's the bio:

My name is Dani, and I am a dance educator and teacher. After a few years of training and performing in New York City, I moved back to New Jersey to focus on my first love - teaching. I've taught weekly studio classes, masterclasses, and workshops across the US and have had the incredible privilege of watching my students compete at the prestigious Youth American Grand Prix and various regional and national competitions as well as perform in regional theater productions and showcases. I'm an ABT® Certified Teacher and completed the ABT® Teacher Training Intensive in Pre-Primary through Level Three of the ABT® National Training Curriculum. The styles I teach primarily are ballet, pointe, jazz, musical theater, beginner tap, contemporary, conditioning for dancers, and movement for singers.

Enough about me!

I'd love to hear about you and what you'd like to work on!

We can work on dance technique, audition prep, video audition prep, movements for singers, ...

Heyy my name is Isabella Xtravaganza, and I have been a professional dancer for about 3 years now. I have been dancing since age 4. I absolutely love to dance it is one of my biggest passions, and I love sharing what I have learned to future dancers as well. Even if you're a beginner that doesn't matter to me because I love seeing people grow and enjoying themselves in their own body! I make sure to have a "judge-free zone" atmosphere and make you feel good in the skin you are in. The whole purpose of my teaching is to have fun and have good vibes only. So if you are interested in learning some cool/fun moves, I am here to teach! I teach Vogue, Heels, Hip Hop, Ballet, Contemporary, and Pointe.
