Learn to dance with Ferlyn! My History of Theatrical Dance: I have been teaching dance for over 15 years. My training in theatrical dance stems from my training at California State University, Los Angeles. This training includes hip hop, tap, modern, jazz, ballet, choreography, theory, stage management skills all within the combination of experience in various musical productions. My main method of training is through theatrical tap and lyrical dance. My Teaching Method: I assess each students' levels, knowledge and styles of learning, determine the best learning paths to incorporate into the lesson and bring a "natural movement" approach of training and education. PLEASE NOTE: For a more accurate look into my experience and resume, please refer to my profile. Any advanced, duet, group, weddings, birthdays, or any special occasion will differ than the usual lesson rate.
