I have had experience in many different types of dance over the last 30 years. I love dance of any kind and love to pass that on to my students! I try very hard to make my lessons specific to the needs of each student not only in what I teach, but in how I teach them. I have had much experience working with students with physical limitations, as well as those who are very advanced. While I do focus on technique and proper performance of steps, I also enjoy getting my students to perform and enjoy dancing. After 30 years of dancing and almost 20 years of teaching I still love what I do and can't wait to share that love with you!

About Stephanie
With 30 years of dance experience and almost 20 years teaching experience, I am excited to help you learn to dance! I have done many different forms of dance from Ballet and Modern dance to Ballroom, Latin, Hustle and West Coast Swing.

After getting my BFA in Dance Pedagogy I began to branch out into the world of partner dancing. After spending some time competing in International Latin, I eventually starting competing in Hustle. I became a champion Hustle dancer, eventually being undefeated in Just Hustle competitions. During my time in Hustle I was also performing in dinner shows with a troupe of dancers and we would travel to events around the country. I was also exposed to West Coast Swing at the time, and this became my next venture.

I have reached the All-Star level in West Coast Swing and have continued to travel to eve
nts to teach, judge, and compete in both West Coast Swing and Hustle. All this time I have continued to study and teach Ballet and Modern Dance as well as Jazz, Ballroom and Latin.

I have been teaching on my own since 2008 and have had students of all levels. My students have been successful in competitions as well as being very strong social dancers. I love to teach and find that while it can be difficult to learn to dance, we can also have fun while doing it!

I was based in the Philadelphia area for almost 15 years and earlier this year have moved to the Charlotte, NC area. I teach at a couple of studios in the Lake Norman and Charlotte area as well as being able to teach online or in the comfort of your home. I look forward to sharing my love of dance with you, no matter what kind of dance you would like to learn!

Come learn and have a blast with a professional competitive and Broadway dancer and choreographer! Founder of the the Broadway Dance Xperience. Educator and choreographer for 16 years, pro dance team dancer for 12 years. Teach ages 3-adult!!! A fun, exciting and inviting environment!

About Amanda
Hello Lovely future students!!! I am a professional actor, dancer, choreographer, director and a Texas state certified educator! I have taught nearly every subject in public schools from grades k - 12 as well as acting, musical theatre, dance and voice at the college level! I attended both SMU and TCU, graduating with a BFA and MFA in Theatre performance, dance, radio/tv/film production and Criminal Justice!

Acting students can expect to improve each week in their character development, technique, script analysis and realistic performance abilities. We will also explore theatre spaces, prepare for auditions and determine specific physical warm ups designed for the individual student to assist in releasing tension. I strive to help all students perform at their highest level and obtain professional opportunities!

Dance students can expe
ct to learn technique styles and combinations in accordance with the style of dance we are learning. Students will experience various forms of dance, warm ups and physical conditioning. We will practice technique as well as audition and dance call preparation. It is a goal to assist to students in their craft and guide them to achieve their personal goals within dance -whether that be stage or commercial dance!

Voice students can expect to improve week to week in their vocal technique. Every voice has a unique timbre; I teach students to release built up tension and apply foundational techniques in order to unlock their own individual sound. I can help any student to sing with freedom, confidence, and expression.

Academic students can look forward to a fun learning environment, honing in concepts from their subject in a unique, non lecture style. I am an incredibly hands on teacher and love to incorporate technology into my lessons!

While the arts are my passion, a well rounded academic student is a must! I look forward to meeting you and helping you to become a better performer!

I have an extensive range of genres that I’ve studied under including: ballet, Cecchetti, hip hop, lyrical, contemporary, modern, jazz, commercial dance, pointe, and ballroom. I attended Grand Valley State University where I obtained a Bachelor of Arts in Dance in 2016. This degree has allowed me to book auditions, perform at concerts, and book my first movie (Pitchfork) in 2015. Currently, I am working with one of the lead choreographers in the industry, Glenn Douglas Packard, where I choreograph commercial dance to elite individuals for videography purposes. Dance is my passion and I want to be able to create that same feeling in the students I teach!

About Alyssa
Hello there! My name is Alyssa Smith and I’ve been a choreographer and dance instructor for 5 years. I have danced ever since I was three years old, which allowed me to develop my career path at a young age.

In addition to dance, I also have an extensive love for health and wellness. In 2016, I took it upon myself to study independently for a personal training certification through the National Association of Sports Medicine (NASM). With this certification, I have been able to grow a clientele of 40 people and have started my own LLC, Alyssa Lenay Fitness. I am more than willing to educate people on the effects of a healthy lifestyle and what it takes to maintain one!

My personality is pretty energetic and bubbly compared to most traditional teachers. There is an advantage to this, in that I can guarantee that you or your child will learn in a positive and fun environment. I hope to meet you soon!

I am loosing fat, gaining muscle, and am able to control my body in my dancing more. She is very motivational, easy to talk to, and is constantly pushing me. She understands my goals and knows exactly what to do to help me achieve them. I love working out and taking dance classes from her! :)

Dance Lessons with me are designed to be a fun, inviting, and educational learning experience. Each lesson is a time of positive enrichment, growth, and unlimited opportunities. Growing up, I always enjoyed going to dance classes as they were an escape route from my daily duties or simply just relieving my mind from math homework for a few hours. Now, as an instructor I strive to meet each students needs by teaching in a style that best suits them. My goal as a teacher is to help my students become the best dancer they can be while also helping them be the best person they can be by teaching them time management skills, discipline, and the importance of the arts.

Furthermore, Carnes directed and choreographed two films, Beauty and A Chance in Time. Both films were selected for The University of South Florida’s Dance Shorts Film Festival (’15 & ’16), and A Chance in Time was showcased in the Dance Alabama Film Festival (’17).
August 2016, Carnes returned from her first International performance of Col/apse, at the International Collegiate Theatre Festival in Edinburgh, Scotland.

My approach to Bellydance is all about body awareness. I work with students on understanding body mechanics in order to eventually be able to layer increasingly complex, grounded and fluid movements. Wether your goal is professional dance or simply to enjoy a new hobby, classes are tailored to your needs!

Private classes are 30 mins-2 hours. The first half of class focuses exercises to help pinpoint the right muscles. The second half is on our feet performing drills and dancing!

About Devon
Hi there, I’m a Bellydance teacher and performer based in Los Angeles!

I began belly dancing at the age of twelve with Tracy Windisch at the School of Performing Arts and Cultural Education in Ukiah California. At age 14 I joined her company Troupe Sattya who performed in festivals, private parties, and shows in Northern California including Health and Harmony, Sol Fest, and Tribal Fest.

Since my teacher came from the Suhaila Salimpour studio, I am a third generation student of her style which is a fusion of Cabaret and tribal belly dance. This school of technique teaches the methodical discovery of specific muscles as a foundation in order to isolate and layer movements in a precise and healthy manner. I also have training in modern, ballet and jazz technique.
