Elizabeth B.

Grand Rapids, MI

As a dancer for 15 years, I had the opportunity to teach, choreograph and perform in over 100 pieces and performances. Lately I have been doing much more choreography and teaching in the musical theater realm. Being well versed in tap is beneficial in many musical theater productions both classic and modern.

I love my lessons with Elizabeth! I've taken five so far, and I already feel I've improved a lot. I feel much more confident while singing, and what I've been taught has really helped to improve my breathing, voice, and understanding of music theory and how voices work. She's always open to questions and will explain anything you might misunderstand or are confused about. From the beginning, I've felt very comfortable with her, and always look forward to our lessons!

With help from Elizabeth, my voice improved dramatically in a few weeks. She was encouraging and helpful during lessons, explaining clearly things I could do differently. Additionally, I felt very comfortable in front of her instead of nervous and shy.

She really is an excellent teacher.

I have learned a lot and have had a lot of fun studying with Elizabeth. She is kind, knowledgable and helpful. I really wanted to work on reading music because it had been a long time since I've sung. She was very patient with me! She always makes our lessons fun but challenges me to always do my best. After working with her for a few months I felt more confident and tried out for a solo with my choir, which I got! I would highly recommend Elizabeth to anyone who wants to work on reading music and learning how to sing better. She's the best.

Ferlyn is professional and accomplished yet she condescends to me as a novice iin such a patient, warm and kind way. I never realized how much i could learn. I had the idea that i would suffer under the tutelage of a harsh dance taskmaster that you learn about in movies and books. NOT SO; i look forward to my class which is such a pleasure!

Ferlyn is a great teacher! She interacts well with my daughter and knows when to recognize growth and areas of improvement. My daughter and Ferlyn get along very well which is always comforting!

What can I say about Jaami... well... she is just AMAZING!!! I love her free spirit, her love toward dance, her smile, enthusiasm, her values as a person, and her love for animals. This was only the first time I took a dance class, so I did not have much experience. However, I love hip hop dance. I read a couple reviews about Jaami's dance companies so I was both excited and nervous to try. BUT, the style in which Jaami teaches makes hip hop very easy to learn. Step by step. I felt that she really wanted me to learn and was really focused on helping me. Thank you Jaami for sharing your love for hip hop with me! Look forward to dancing with you again.

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.

I have been trying to come up with the perfect words to describe this teacher but I can't find anything I feel is good enough, other than the words wonderful and amazing.The way she teaches, and just her presence alone just blows me away, and I couldn't be more thankful to have met her and have the opportunity of her teaching me. If anyone is meant to be a teacher,it would be this person. She is so gifted.. Believe me when I say, if you have any doubt about choosing the right teacher, look no further because you just found her.

Amy has truly changed my life both as a performer and person.She helped me polish my vocal technique and singing methods, in addition to acting and audition coaching. She was very instrumental in helping me pick amazing audition songs and how to really give a memorable performance, even if it's just 16 bars at an open call! Before studying with Amy, I was a bit unfocused and rusty,now I am poised and confident in my singing abilities. Thank you Amy, you are an incredible and inspiring teacher!
