Vanessa G.

Philadelphia, PA

I began dancing at the age of six and trained throughout the country at some of the best schools including The Rock Center for Dance in Las Vegas and Broadway Dance Center in New York City. Locally I attended the Philadelphia High School for the Creative and Performing Arts, where I trained under professors Wayne St. David and Shawn-Lamere Williams of Eleone Dance Theatre.

I started teaching and booked my first professional gig fifteen years ago and have been performing and sharing my experience with my students ever since. As a teacher I am passionate about proper technique and increasing the personal character of my students, but also about making class a fun,positive experience! I truly love what I do!

If you have any questions please do not hesitate to contact me and I cannot wait to work with you !

We were a bundle of nerves as we approached the entrance. Sasha met us at the door, and immediately we felt welcomed and ready to learn some new steps.
She was friendly, encouraging, patient, and professional. She is a good fit for us.
We went home happy, with 2, 3, 4, and 1 on my minds.
