Olga taught us an amazing first wedding dance that she also choreographed for us. She combined Rumba and Foxtrot elements – with leans, dips and even a lift – into one unique dance that impressed (and definitely surprised) our friends and family at the reception. Neither of us had ever done any formal dancing before, but Olga got us to a proficient level in a very short time. Besides being a talented teacher, Olga is also very funny, as well as kind, and will make you feel at ease as you begin to dance, no matter your skill or comfort level. Highly recommended!

Tanya was terrific
She arrived on time with no glitches and was able to get music playing and class started promptly.
She worked with my 16 year old daughter Olivia who had a great time, and they made plans for what they will be focusing on in the future. Tanya is a gifted dancer, but even better, she is a great teacher too. !

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

She's very flexible and very knowledgeable about different types of stretches for your body. She is helping me work on my splits and straddle. I usually can get a front left leg split after an hour's session. I highly recommend her for flexibility training.

Carolyn is an amazing teacher! As a beginning singer, she knows how to tailor lessons exactly to my needs. She does a spectacular job at accommodating the rock music style of singing I use in my song writing, recording, and performances, and is always clear about what's working for me and what I can improve, and how.

Furthermore, she has a strong song-writing and production background and has acted as a producer of sorts in the best way possible, challenging me to work outside of my comfort zone in order to help me package the music I've written into the best songs they could ever be.

She really knows what she is doing, is extremely personable, and I highly recommend her for anything music-related!

Carolyn was fantastic. She was very focused on the voice and helping me find mine. I sang in college and for quite a while in my adult life in choirs both classical and jazz groups and she helped me to start the path of finding out what my voice really sounds like.
I had a fabulous time for the time I spent in New York studying with her.

Carolyn is friendly, takes the lesson seriously and she explains herself very well. She's also very patient and really tries to make the lesson fun. Her high energy attitude really keeps the session moving and the time flew by. I'm looking forward to continuing to work with her and I would highly recommend her to anyone.
