Stephen has been giving our teenager daughter weekly lessons in "J-pop" dancing. Even though his background does not include this particular style, he has done a great job of staying ahead of our daughter, and-even more importantly-encouraging and motivating her to keep at it. (Since dancing is one of the few exercises she will do willingly, this is key!) She looks forward to the weekly lesson and so do we.

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.

Given all of the positive reviews, I am refraining from giving Ferlyn only one star. I am sure she is relatively competent as a teacher. The unfortunate aspect for which she is receiving such a poor review is a significant lack of professionalism.
I arranged piano lessons with Ferlyn for my mother.
Her first lesson (for which I was present) was fine.
I then found out that at their second lesson, Ferlyn showed up very sick. This was quite concerning, especially given my mother’s age. Ferlyn definitely should have canceled that second lesson and not showed up so sick.
Then, only two hours (!) before my mother’s scheduled third lesson, I receive a text message from Ferlyn stating the following:
“Hi Dominique, wanted to let you and your mom that piano lessons will be cancelled today because it is my Birthday! I will see her next week. :)”
This was incredible. This was a cancellation only two hours prior, not due to some emergency or even due to her illness which should have caused a cancelation the week before! This was because it was her birthday. Something that would have been understandable, were she to have let us know well in advance. I am sure she knew in advance when her birthday is.
This does not reflect on TakeLessons, as I have had great experiences with other teachers.
But this degree of inconsiderateness, first with regard to the illness and then with regard to the manner of cancellation, is appalling.

Teresa was awesome! She worked with me and my limited flexibility and really set me up for success with exercises to integrate into my routine. She was also very cognizant of a prior injury and presented long term alternate solutions to tissue regrowth. I really look forward to working with her again!

She was really great, we have only had one lesson so far but she made me feel very comfortable and I feel like she will be perfect for me helping me get over my stage fright. She came up with quite a few ideas up front and can tell she is taking it seriously, which makes me even more confident in her because it is such a serious issue for me. I am looking forward to working with her.

Beyond expectations. She took a shy girl and helped her find her voice in one lesson. I got a radiantly, beaming, head-held-high, confident child back at the end of the hour!!

I am a teacher of twelve years and I love what I do!

My theatrical dance lessons may consist of warm up, stretch, technique, progressions, choreography, and improvisation. We will condition, build strength and flexibility, coordination and confidence, while focusing on technique and important stage notes like stage direction.

My main goal is that my students have fun in addition to benefitting from our lesson. All my classes are personalized to suit my students' goals, progression, and timeline.

Theatrical Dance lessons are offered at 4 locations:
1) Online via TakeLessons Classroom
2) Teacher Location 1 (Primary studio - 150sq ft) - For private and semi-private (2 people) lessons
3) Teacher Location 2 (Secondary studio/theater 350-750 sq ft) - For Group classes (3 or more people)*
4) Travel location
*Teacher Location 2 will incur a rental fee to be paid by the student directly to the studio on the day of the lesson. Please inquire for more info!

Jordan is an excellent teacher who’s very patient and takes the time make sure you’re really understanding. In one half hour lesson with Jordan you can learn as much as three lessons with other tutors. I highly recommend her.
