I began dancing at the age of six and trained throughout the country at some of the best schools including The Rock Center for Dance in Las Vegas and Broadway Dance Center in New York City. Locally I attended the Philadelphia High School for the Creative and Performing Arts, where I trained under professors Wayne St. David and Shawn-Lamere Williams of Eleone Dance Theatre.

I started teaching and booked my first professional gig fifteen years ago and have been performing and sharing my experience with my students ever since. As a teacher I am passionate about proper technique and increasing the personal character of my students, but also about making class a fun,positive experience! I truly love what I do!

If you have any questions please do not hesitate to contact me and I cannot wait to work with you !

About Vanessa
Having been trained in Classical Ballet, Jazz, Tap, Modern, African, Hip Hop Dance and Tumbling for over twenty years, I can assure you that you or your child will learn proper technique and will receive all of the physical benefits my dance, fitness and tumbling lessons have to offer ! Aside from being a lot of fun, learning these modalities increases confidence, encourages discipline and drive and optimizes flexibility, balance and strength !

I have been an instructor for over fifteen years ! Teaching is my most loved passion. Some of my professional achievements include managing the group exercise program for two of Sweat Fitness Corporation’s eight locations in the Philadelphia area, being chosen to warm up over 200 prospective Philadelphia Eagles Cheerleaders at their auditions and more recently being chosen to coach at one of
Las Vegas' only junior Olympic training facilities. I have also had a wonderful professional dance career, I toured the east coast as an African Dancer and was featured on several television programs dancing. Lastly, I am very well educated in Kinesiology, Psychology and Nutrition so I can always be heard giving different age appropriate health and wellness tips throughout my classes. I believe health and wellness is very important at every age !

I would like to thank you very much for taking the time to read my profile, I hope to share my gift of teaching with you and your family. Have a lovely day !

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.
