Stephen has been giving our teenager daughter weekly lessons in "J-pop" dancing. Even though his background does not include this particular style, he has done a great job of staying ahead of our daughter, and-even more importantly-encouraging and motivating her to keep at it. (Since dancing is one of the few exercises she will do willingly, this is key!) She looks forward to the weekly lesson and so do we.

As an older person who never had ballet lesson, this could have been a very intimidating experience but Teresa was very patient and thoughtful about her instruction. She really wanted to be certain I understood the terms, technique and overall format of ballet. A great experience! I look forward to my next lesson!

I teach beginner to pre-professional ballet with an emphasis on musicality and freedom of movement through space. Most of my class will be structured, practicing the principals and details of ballet. I emphasize freedom of movement and love for dance. Very willing and able to tailor class to the individual student's needs.

Elizabeth is very attentive of your individual needs. I take her class when I feel I hit enough walls from the public classes I'm taking and need someone experienced to guide me personally and answer all the confusions I have. She helped me find my proper hip move and body alignment for my pirouette and also helped me get started on pointe work. I'm now accessed and approved by the Joffery ballet school teacher to join its beginner pointe class, which I'm really excited about.

My class focuses on the use and understanding of movement execution as well as ballet vocabulary. The class will start with a ballet barre, then move to center work, and across the floor. Younger students will be taught with the effective use of imagery for movement and older students will focus on the anatomy of the body. Students will be expected to bring a journal to each lesson to note vocabulary and movement combinations and review outside of lessons.

My 12 y.o. daughter has been taking private lessons with Briana. My daughter has no prior experience but would like to join a group class some day and Briana has been great coming up with an appropriate lesson plan and providing a foundation to start with so she will be comfortable joining a group class as well. Briana is very enthusiastic and my daughter has really enjoyed the classes. I can tell she has learned a lot & will benefit a great deal from these lessons. We definitely plan to continue the lessons and I highly recommend Briana to anyone seeking dance lessons.

I started taking private lessons after a long hiatus from ballet. Briana is an excellent teacher, patient, and knowledgeable. I've progressed faster than I would have if I had only taken group classes. Briana's teaching style is fun and inspiring. She takes the time to discover where you are in your dance training and tailors the lessons to your goals while maintaining authority as a professional. I recommend Briana for any adult dancers who want to improve their technique and want focused, individual training.

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
