Careful private work on shape and function of the body, part by part. Breaking down the language of the movement so you know what you are doing when and how to carefully develop the parts that are weakest by separating them from the mix of all the movement and then studying them minutely until the physical process makes sense to your mind and body.

Gina is great! My 14 year old daughter loved her. She helped her work on several techniques and scenes in preparation for an audition. I would definitely recommend her for various levels of experience.
She loves the craft and it shows in her teaching. Shes tough but so loving and enthusiastic.

I have had the opportunity to learn acting with Gina and it has been great so far. When I signed up for the lessons, I signed up with Gina because of her credentials as I never had an encounter with her. From my first class itself she has taught me a lot about acting specially stage acting and that too with great enthusiasm. I now feel like pursuing it further. She is quite knowledgeable specially in her field and every moment that you are in the class with her, you are learning something new. I would highly recommend her, doesn't matter if you are just getting into the field or trying to set your advanced level stage, her talents will teach you something new that would take you to the next level. I hope you can take advantage of learning from a Great Artist like Gina.
P.S. She is a great Dancer and a great Musician.

Good Luck!

Gina is amazingly dedicated, both to the material she teaches and to her students. She's knowledgeable and encouraging. I engaged her to teach ballet to me and a friend who was trying to use dance to work through some body issues. Gina navigated a tricky situation - two students at different levels, one with psychological barriers - beautifully, and we both learned loads. Definitely get her to teach you things!

Elena V.

Los Angeles, CA

I graduated in classical ballet Cecchetti method.
I am also graduated in the method Orazio Costa (mimetic method).
I like to experience the two forms that are complementary.
The first: the grace through exercise and awareness.
The second: the freedom through organically reunited with nature.
The body speaks and means. Let's give voice together

I had my second lesson with Hanna this week and she has been great so far. As someone new to yoga, I would highly recommend Hanna. She took the time before we started the lessons to answer all of my questions. She is very patient and friendly. I like the way she has explained yoga so far; the styles, poses, flows and the mental and spiritual aspects. She has a calm demeanor.

She has also been mindful of my existing shoulder injury to make sure that what we're doing isn't aggravating it. The other nice thing is she's been good about responding to my questions quickly and throughly and she's been on-time for both lessons.

Amanda S.

New York, NY

I have been teaching Ballet in New York City for over 6 years, at various studios including the Joffrey Ballet School. When taking a private ballet lesson I will assess your technical level and help you understand what your strengths and weaknesses are. In a supportive way I will help to improve ballet technique, increase flexibility, refine rhythmic understanding to acquire clarity in your ballet training.
I will cater private lessons for beginning ballet students to professional dancers. My style is very supportive and direct. I believe that to improve as a dancer you need personal feedback and hard work. I am very passionate about sharing what I know to help other dancers reach their goals.

Desiree is wonderful! She has great energy and patience, and she's receptive to feedback about how the lesson is going, as well as how to modify it for my needs going forward. This was just my first lesson, but I'm really looking forward to future ones and having Desiree help me improve my form & skills. :)

I have only had one lesson so far. He is very expensive but for good reason. He teaches in a way no ballet instructor ever has before for me. He sees the body and understands it. He can tell by looking at you what you are having problems with. He is very helpful and can pull exercises off the top of his head that can help with whatever you are struggling in. It is a great investment to your career to take lessons with him.
