Ashley hit the nail on the head. Thanks Ashley for setting me straight and giving me several variations. Music and dance are intertwined.

This summer, Ashley has been working with my daughter on Chicago choreography in preparation for auditions. She is a fabulous teacher and has been very easy to schedule and communicate with. My daughter enjoys her lessons with her. Highly recommend!

Hi there,

My name is Petra. I have been a professional Ballroom Dancer/Instructor for the past 10 years. I have helped hundreds of couples achieve their wedding dance dreams and have also led students to win awards at competitions and of course, have made many people confident and comfortable social dancers.

Whether you're preparing for your big day, want to be able to dance at a friends wedding or are looking to burn up the dance floor in any situation, I'm your girl.

Online classes and in person sessions offered in Sarasota FL. I also have a close network of both male and female instructors in the area so if for any reason, we are not a fit, I may to be able to recommend someone else who can better accommodate you.

Thank you and happy dancing!
Petra

Gina is so knowledgeable in so many areas of dance- technique, expressiveness, somatics, book recommendations, energy work. She is a rare gem of a teacher. Someone who goes way beyond a typical dance class. She has so much experience to draw from. 👏🏽👏🏽👏🏽👏🏽
Belinda and Daniella
Very good first lesson. It was a sound, thorough evaluation, along with a positive, encouraging exchange of ideas and detailed technique work between my child and Ms Gina. Ms Gina gets down to work quickly and kindly. Her depth of knowledge is impressive and refreshing. Amazing lady! Thank you!

I have been belly dancing for over 10 years. Taking classes with me, I can teach you how to move your hips, belly, arms to belly dance. I like to focus on each part and take it step by step until you are able to move your hips, belly, arms, shoulders, and face to the rythm of the music. I will teach you how to belly dance and will also watch you belly dance and correct your movements and provide you tips for improvement. My goal is for you to reach your goal of becoming a great belly dancer.

Belly dancing gives the female body legitimization to be "round", in contrast to modern Western cultural preferences for flat stomachs. The Belly Dance is identified by swaying hips, undulating torso, and articulated isolations employed in a range of dynamic and emotional expressions. Characteristic movements in the dance include curving patterns, undulations, thrusts, lifts, locks, and drops, and shaking or quaking body movements. The focus is on isolated movements of individual parts of the ...

About Jenny

Belly dancing is an ancient art and has been a fixture of weddings and parties in the Middle East for centuries. I will start teaching you from basics and build you up to learn and become a proficient belly dancer. I have a lot of patience to teach and can guide you step by step. I will start by set

Jenny is just wonderful. She explains and demonstrates so well. If I don’t understand something, she finds another way to describe and explain. Plus she makes we work hard which I love. I come out of lessons feeling like I just did a workout.

The best part of teaching is when the student has that "Eureka!" moment: feeling the enjoyment of dancing, having confidence and control coupled with the ability to let go and create. I teach students to understand the foundations of movement, how to master the basics and connect into the complex. The how, the why and the what and how each dancer relates are imperative. I believe dance can be accessible to everyone. I believe my job is to help you fill your tool box.

My daughter has only had her first lesson with Lindsay but we were both impressed with her. She is friendly and was able to make the exercises very tailored to her specific needs and goals. We are looking forward to continuing to work with her.
Rojean
Lindsay has been an amazing yoga/ballet instructor for me. I started taking beginners ballet lessons with her in June of 2019 and she was so patient with me. I later on decided to take yoga with her a couple months later and she is just nothing short of awesome! She is very well spoken during yoga and really knows what she’s doing. She always accommodates with my needs and makes sure I’m comfortable with whatever we’re practicing for that day. For example she’ll ask how I’m doing that day and if I say I’m feeling anxious, we’ll do a relaxing and calming session, or we might do something more physical and energetic if I need to get hyper and start my day energized. She has obviously had a lot of experience in this field and it really does show. I’m super glad I chose lindsay to be my instructor and would never consider going with anyone else.
Maureen L.
I love taking my online classes with Lindsay! Having a really busy schedule, I thought at first this was an indulgence to have a class in the comfort of my own home, however I've rethought that since I've started. These are necessary to keeping, not just my physique in shape, but my ballet up to par, as well as my mental state of being calm, focused & happy. Lindsay is very skilled at shifting each class to what is best for me that day. She's skilled & knowledgeable, proficient, professional, friendly, fun & gives me a thorough workout! Thank you Lindsay!

"My experience with Crystal has been amazing!! Crystal expertise in technical, ballet, liturgical, jazz, hip hop, and African dance is out of this world. Crystal took her time to show me (at the time a non dancer) all of those dances and now I am no longer a beginner!! Now Crystal has asked me to travel with her to several dance conferences. We have also done a few routines together! One of the venues was at the Phillips Arena!! AMAZING!"

She arrived on time with no glitches and was able to get music playing and class started promptly.
She worked with my 16 year old daughter Olivia who had a great time, and they made plans for what they will be focusing on in the future. Tanya is a gifted dancer, but even better, she is a great teacher too. !"
