I've never had a dance lesson before and was pretty nervous about this but Tanya made me feel comfortable and I eventually relaxed and enjoyed myself!

Thanks again!!

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'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 totally enjoy the art of Tap...I've been taking tap for over 15years. I'm ready to start teaching you or your child some tap moves if you are!! Im still currently teaching all levels of tap to this day at a studio. My goal is to make the dancer feel they have achieved a genre of dance that they never thought they could ever learn. Tap can be very frustrating to learn because your making music with your feet, but I'm able to keep the student relaxed and laugh at themselves when they mess up (its not a big deal.....we all mess up)!! :). If you need either training just for technical education or a dance routine, I'm your girl for the job.!!

Amazing!!! I absolutely love my teacher Nadia!!! So gentle in her structions and pointers. Very attentive and focused. I feel comfortable to be learning and knowing it's ok when I lose counts or off beat. Recommend her to any beginners one on one lessons.

Nadia is by far the best dance instructor my daughter has ever had. Nadia has a great deal of knowledge and she cares about helping her students improve as dancers. She teaches them to have confidence and regardless of their current skills, she gives her students the tools they need to excel in dancing. I highly recommend her.

It's such a blessing and a wonderful experience to be a student of hers. I absolutely love the challenges she gives us, the close individual attention she displays to each student, and choreography. She is truly amazing.

Interested in dance lessons? Carolyn began working professionally at 8 years old and has since appeared on stage, in national commercials, recorded voiceovers, and booked principal roles in both film and television. She earned her Bachelor of Fine Arts in 2011 from the Boston Conservatory, where she majored in musical theater with an emphasis in directing. With years of extensive dance training, she's had the opportunity to perform the original Broadway choreography in several major productions she has been a part of, her favorite being the tap spectacular "42nd Street." As an award winning choreographer, her pieces have been recognized nationally at dance competitions across the country.

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.

Carolyn was a tremendous teacher. I just wanted to understand the basics and she was able to provide an excellent foundation. I think that it's likely that I'm much (much) older than the usual student that's interested in tap, and Carolyn managed my own limitations with skill and good humor. Oh, and besides being a great teacher, she's an amazing tap dancer!

You've seen it on Hit TV shows like America's Best Dance Crew, Dance Moms and So You Think You Can Dance, now it's YOUR TURN to learn how to tap!

All Ages Welcome! I have self-proclaimed I can teach anyone how to tap dance, young or old! You can be a total beginner or maybe you did it when you were younger and want to start again! You can!

Students can expect to start with the basics of tap dancing and basic rhythms if they have no previous experience. As the student progresses, more complex rhythms and steps will be taught. Class consists of a warm-up, steps done in the center and also combinations performed "across the floor". At minimum, one age-appropriate tap routine may be taught for the student to perform for fun or at an audition.

Classes offered online or in-person. Tap shoes are not required for my lessons, but are strongly encouraged as tap dance is all about making noise :)
