Tanya has a special gift for teaching dance. She really understands all of the elements that go into a properly executed dance move, and more importantly, she really knows how to explain those elements in an approachable manner. I will definitely be purchasing additional lessons with Tanya.

I've taken tap dancing for over 20 years, and performed in many tap musicals! I can show you basic steps well into the more advanced rhythm tapping, as well as poise and confidence as a tapper.

Ashley is a super nice knowledgeable and skillful teacher. She is well organized and on time. She really helped me learn how to improve my finger positioning, cord development and taught me some great exercises to help me. I give her a Highly Recommended thumbs up!

Great teacher! Prospective students should know she has a keyboard, a very nice one feels like a piano but is not an actual piano. 😀

It has just been one lesson but so far so good. I need to take more lessons to see how it goes. She seems knowledgeable about how to improve my voice. I'm an adult with a lot of singing experience already.

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.

I currently teach advanced tap at Glenwood Dance Studio in Rogers Park, but I enjoy teaching beginners, as well! I have previously taught tap technique, history and choreography at Kaleidoscope Dance Studio in Evanston, the Robert Crown Center in Evanston, Steps Dance Center in Aurora, IL and Batavia Academy of Dance in Batavia, IL.

I have been studying tap for twenty years, with Becky Cooper, Phil Brooks, Mark Yonally and others, and I was the artistic director of Tonik Tap ensemble at Northwestern University, for which I choreographed several pieces. I specialize in polyrhythm, choreography, advanced technique, tap history, and beginning improvisation. I have mostly trained in Rhythm Tap, although I also have experience with Broadway Tap.

Whatever your tap background is, from none at all to advanced experience, I love to tap more than anything in the world--except helping others discover how much fun it is. I would love to help you achieve whatever your goals are--starting ...

Darcy is a warm, thoughtful, patient teacher. She has a very calm demeanor and connected immediately with my 11 year old daughter. She gave each lesson 110% and I highly recommend her.
