About Lindsay

In home and in studio classes are a 1 hour minimum. Online lessons are also available at 30 and 45 minute durations please call takelessons to book.

Hey there! My name is Lindsay. I truly enjoy teaching everything in the realm of physical activity. I grew up dancing at Mark Spivaks Institute in Jacksonville, Florida. I studied under a Russian Prima ballerina. I played soccer. I swam. My lifestyle at a young age has reflected in my work as an adult. Nowadays I love yoga, hiking, running, art, and being a big sister! If I have one goal in my professional life it would be to inspire active living in today's youth. I completed my 450 hour pilates certification which compliments my teachings in every field due to the anatomical approach. Currently I work as a dance teacher, pilates instructor, yoga teacher and flexibility coach. My pa

ssion for movement will inspire you to achieve your goals. I love to make any positive difference to a client: in their day, in their body, in their outlook. I’m an eager student, so I’m constantly teaching new stuff I’ve recently learned. I look forward to meeting you and reaching the finish line- whatever that may be!

I am enthusiastic about teaching online lessons as well. I find that online training works amazingly well, and is extremely convenient for people with busy schedules.

For Dance - Lindsay teaches ballet, social club, and basic hip hop and tap

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!

About Chrystie

WELCOME DANCERS!

Meet your dance instructor. I have my bachelors degree from Chapman University in Theatre & Dance. My training includes Ballet, Tap, Jazz, Modern, Folk Dance, Dance History, Hip-Hop, Musical Theatre, Improv, and Kinesiology, among other dance-related subjects.

I grew up in a small Illinois town. Lessons were few and far between, so I would copy dancing off of movies and videos in order to perform at local dances, or for other community events. As a youth, I took country line dancing classes. Always drawn to anything involving dance and movement, I auditioned and performed with a Disney Showcase Troupe. By high school, I was choreographing for the Show Choir, as well as, performing in theatrical productions, including the musical “The Wizard of Oz”.

Before graduating with my Bachelor’s degree in Theatre & Danc

e from Chapman University in Orange, California, I continued my study of many dance styles & techniques such as: Ballet, Tap, Jazz, Modern, Hip Hop, Ballroom, Dunham Technique, yoga/stretch, Dance Business & History. From 1996-2001 I performed a variety of dancing and singing roles in showcases and events such as “American Celebration” and “The Story of Rock n’ Roll”. While studying at Chapman, I accepted a position as historian, and eventually, vice president of the performing arts society (PASC).

When I wasn’t onstage, I could be found backstage working lights, sound, costuming, or stage management. I searched out other educational opportunities at Cypress College and the Taggart International School where I studied West African dance and Russian Ballet Technique. After performing a liturgical dance performance for my graduation ceremony, I toured the United States and a portion of Canada, researching dance around the world. This eventually led me to Jacmel, Haiti, where I studied cultural and social dances of the local people. After that I took up Bellydance and studied folk dancing in Chicago, Illinois.

Since 2001, I have taught classes for all ages from infants to adults. I have also studied child development and have a special love for bringing an adoration of the arts to the youngest artists in our communities. It is imperative that all my teachings highlight body positivity and the belief that everyone can dance. A life-long learner and dance aficionado, I continue my dance studies in Ballroom, Baroque Dance, and Scottish Country Dance. My influences include Isadora Duncan, Katherine Dunham, Sean Greene & Misty Copeland. I love being a part of the DA Dance Family.

Keomi has a lot of positive energy and is sensitive to the the skill levels of her students so she tailors her classes to give just enough challenge while building on students’ strengths and experiences.
Keomi gives a great cardio workout where you really sweat yet the class is so fun that you don’t notice how hard you are working!
You WILL learn many classic hip hop moves which Keo strings together to make a sexy/cool but accessible choreography. You come out of class feeling blissed - both for the vigorous workout and for accomplishing the dance moves! This is a great class for all levels.

"We had a little over a week before our wedding and needed to figure out our first dance. We went to Ferlyn for dance lessons. In 5 sessions we had our first dance down! She helped us build confidence in our dance. She is extremely professional and helpful. She allowed us to change up some moves and suggested new moves that would improve our style. We learned a lot of new techniques with great insight. Our first dance went really well and we definitely recommend her!" - Dang & Niki

Private Dance Lessons Near You

Dance is one of the most popular performing arts. Talented dancers can hold their own on the stage, entertaining an entire audience with expressive movement and stunning choreography. Different forms of dance can move us to tears, astonishment, and joy. 

A fun way to get comfortable in your body and connect with others, dance can benefit anyone who wants to learn. Whether you want to study ballet, ballroom, tap, jazz, swing, modern, country, or hip hop dance, private lessons will help you start moving to the beat. Keep reading to learn how dance can help you.

How Dance Classes Can Benefit You

Dance is an incredibly beneficial practice — not only professionally, but personally as well. Learning to dance can open up a variety of career opportunities in performing arts and entertainment. Whether you dream of doing pirouettes across a stage as a ballerina in a professional dance company, working as a dancer in the music or music video business, or dancing with guests as a host or hostess on a cruise liner, professional dance lessons can get you there. 

Dance classes are also incredibly beneficial for other types of entertainers and performers. If you're in the acting business, in a band, or dream of making it big in musical theater, a background in dance will prove useful. Dance will make you more comfortable and coordinated in your body and help you feel comfortable, using the stage in a performance. 

Dance is also very healthy. It's a workout that focuses on three primary aspects of fitness: flexibility, strength, and endurance. This all-in-one workout is good for everyone; it's a fun way to get healthy and stay in shape. 

The Best Way to Learn to Dance and What You'll Practice in Lessons

It's easy to find free dance classes, tutorials, and training videos online, but the best way to learn to dance is with a private dance tutor. With a private teacher, you'll spend your time in lessons designed to address your interests, learning needs, and dance goals — rather than wasting time in one-sized-fits-all lessons. You'll pick up new choreography and overcome individual challenges quickly, as you receive immediate feedback.

No two private lessons the same. For example, dance classes for children differ from dance lessons for adults in terms of teaching methods and content. In private lessons, you'll stay motivated and interested, while working at a pace and level that's comfortable for you. 

Sample Curriculum for Beginner Dance

If you have no previous formal experience in dance, then beginner lessons are for you. You'll be introduced to the basics of caring for and conditioning your body, while learning beginner techniques in your choice of dance style. In beginner lessons, your teacher might cover the following topics:

  • Warming up and stretching out
  • Exploring different styles of dance
  • Listening to music and finding rhythm
  • Basic dance moves and choreography

Sample Curriculum for Intermediate Dance

If you've already had some formal dance training with a professional and feel comfortable with the introductory choreography in your field of dance, then you'll feel most comfortable in intermediate lessons. You'll build upon your existing knowledge and skills, continuously challenging yourself to progress into more complex and technically difficult choreography. Your teacher might choose to cover the following topics:

  • Dance fitness and injury prevention
  • Focus on your favorite dance style
  • Learn more complex steps and routines
  • Practice expressive movement

Sample Curriculum for Advanced Dance

Whether you're an experienced ballerina, looking to diversify your abilities by studying another form of dance, or hoping to perfect your individual style of hip hop dance, advanced lessons are for you. In advanced classes, you'll have the opportunity to work with a highly experienced dance professional to hone your talent and push your physical limits. Subjects covered in advanced dance depend greatly on the student's individual goals and interests, but your teacher might cover the following:

  • Advanced choreographing
  • Marketing yourself in performance arts
  • Audition coaching
  • Performance preparation

How to Find a Dance Teacher Near You

If you're ready to start dancing with the guidance of an experienced professional, you'll need a teacher. Luckily, TakeLessons makes finding a private dance tutor easy. With a quick search, you'll have pages of qualified dance teachers, with loads of teaching experience, to choose from — no matter the type of dance that interests you most. Before choosing a teacher, we recommend browsing through several profiles, reading reviews left by other students, and finding a dance teacher who specializes in your preferred style of dance. 

The cost of dance lessons depends on the individual teacher's rates, but most instructors charge fees based on the length of lessons. With so many teachers to choose from, you won't have a problem finding one who fits your budget and your schedule. Plus, you'll find that your investment in private lessons pays off quickly, as you pick up new skills fast and improve your ability to move after your very first lesson!

4 Fundamental Tap Dance Steps for Beginners

By Suzy S.

Good dancers can make even the most complicated, strenuous techniques look effortless and fluid. If you've ever watched an experienced dancer perform a tap routine, you probably watched in disbelief as their feet turned into a blur of movement that seemed to move independently from the rest of their body. Sometimes the sound effects are even more impressive; when done well, tap dance is a musical art form that creates its own rhythm. Do you want to train your own feet to create this unique mixt …
