We have been working with Dwan for a few weeks now. Our experience has been excellent. She is knowledgeable, listens well and sincerely tries to help my daughter attain her dance goals. Dwan is also very encouraging and just has an overall uplifting spirit. I highly recommend Dwan.

I came to Jordan needing help with extreme deadlines. I was auditioning for a musical theater degree with a large number of colleges and while I had a good amount of experience singing and acting, I was practically new to dance. Online, she was able to help me prepare for audition pre-screens, learn dance basics rapidly, and feel less anxiety about dance auditions. As a result, I was able to receive many MT acceptances and get into my dream school. Thank you Jordan for being patient with me and helping me learn at my own pace while moving fast enough to meet my goals. You’re the best!

She’s awesome! I’ve learned a lot in a short period of time already
Della
My daughter enjoys her lessons with miss Jordan- they are a great extension of what she is learning in class and a way to improve in areas she struggles. Thanks Jordan!

Cat LaCohie, aka Vixen De Ville is an amazing instructor. I went from terrified, broken-hearted mess of a mid-life crisis to Scandal Navia, burlesque performer in a few months! Cat's snarky sense of humor adds to the fun you are certain to have in her class. Her warm encouragement, and total body positivity will have you feeling like a Queen from the first class. I still go to her every time I need to hone a new act. She's amazing not only at instruction, encouragement and choreography, she excels at solving problems, working out costume issues, knowing where to get or make literally anything and fine-tuning all your bits - both sensual and comedic. Whether you've never set foot onstage, or are a seasoned pro, you can benefit immensely from working with Cat. She is fantastic!
Debra
So much fun! Cat is so good and helping you find your inter burlesque persona. Lots of laughs with an amazing result. She does it all....you learn everything you need to know about burlesque...how to create an Act, make a Costume, and even perform! I highly recommend signing up for a life changing experience!
Velvet
Amazing teacher!
Full of inspirations and knowledge. She gives you tools and you are totally free to use it your own way.
Doing course on-line I have lot of options to speak with Cat, participate in group calls and so one.
Totally worth it!

"I took Cat's intensive class, and it was amazing! She is a very comfortable teacher, who imbues in her students the confidence and wonder of our own bodies! So much fun to participate, and even more fun to watch people come to life in an accepting, loving atmosphere! Class sizes are small and intimate. Very encouraging if you've just started or have experience!"

"I can’t always go to Hollywood to take her classes, but with her online classes I’ve learned so much about self confidence and body positivity. I’m always so excited for my next gigs now all thanks to Cat/Vixen! She brings such positive energy and allows her students to embrace their individuality. Her dance classes are so fun and she never lets you feel bad about yourself if you can’t get some moves down the first time. I can’t wait till I’m done with being a full time student so that I can actually have time to go to her classes. And she is also amazing to work with if anyone gets a chance! Thank you so much Vixen!"

"I took Vixen’s class while I was visiting the US for a few weeks. I had already done a Burlesque class in my home country but I wanted to explore the subject with another teacher from another country which means another approach to the discipline.
I’m so glad I chose this particular one. Vixen was so kind and benevolent. Her lessons are fun. She’s teaches me to be more sexy, to gain confidence on stage, to interact with the audience. A few things that I haven’t picked up in my previous class.
I really recommend it!"

"Cat is truly a genius teacher who took me from no experience to doing a performance in a real show in LA in 8 weeks with such warmth, grace and fun . She has broken down the art of burlesque into principles that anyone can apply, yet she guides you to express your unique fabulousness so that every performer and act stands out. She is truly channeling the burlesque muses! One of the best things I've ever done for myself."
