My first lesson with Zach was great! 5 stars. He asked the right questions as to what aI am looking to do. And we quickly came up with a lesson plan that with the right amount of work in my part will get me headed in the right direction. Zach does a great job of making his students feel comfortable and good about their abilities.

She’s really awesome and friendly. My kids definitely were so excited and happy for how she taught them and her enthusiasm to teach new skills. She was right on time to the appointment and Mary takes her role seriously in terms of COVID protection. Looking forward to continuous lessons :)
Sophia A.
I really enjoy the Dance Fitness Sessions we do together and no wonder Mary's talent in music and rhythm synchronization gave an extra point to the whole experience. Even if my day is hard and I do the extra mile to keep up with my sessions I'm always rewarded in the end with great mood and feeling pumped. I highly recommend Mary to keep you fit and enjoy yourself at the same time.

I m a female senior citizen of 75 yrs old and have suffered from chronic back pain and weak and stiff muscles. when I met Mary I fell in love with her. Her pleasant and warm disposition attracted me immediately. I liked the idea of her online training sessions, so I don’t have to travel to a gym. She is very patient with me and knows how to keep me motivated to continue exercising. She has changed my life and boost my desire to get better.
Mary is very talented with many years of experience in both Pilates and physical training and she is a beautiful ballet teacher as well! I highly recommend her !

"My son is very difficult to work with. He had never seen any reason to memorize a monologue word for word. Jason had a very difficult job ahead of him, getting my son ready for his auditions for college. Through working with Jason,my son realized the value of memorization, and practicing his monologue enough times to get it down. He is attending AMDA now, and he could have picked from three colleges that he auditioned for.

Jason kept his cool and worked well through all the little shows of emotion and pique that my son put on. Jason really came through for us and we will be using his services again for our daughter. Not only does Jason know his stuff, but he knows how to work with and handle teens."
