Hiii... I'm Dwan and I'm so excited to meet with you and have a blast learning with each other. I've been teaching private lessons since 2000 and I have loved the growth that I have seen in my clients; gained skills in multiple dance styles, grasping the understanding of musicality & coordination, and the comfortability in stage presence. My journey began in 6 grade at my college prep magnet school Charleston County School of The Arts; I attended this school through 12th grade and thereafter I excepted a scholarship to Columbia College. These two schools gave me the foundation of dance history, tech, skills in instructing, and the quality of being versatile in styles. Along with a professional background in music videos, tv shows. productions, and tours; I have insight on how to market yourself in the entertainment industry. Best way to describe myself, I'm high energy and I'm a big bubble of fun, and my teaching style is full of dedication, patience, and positive reinforcement. I look forward to helping you reach you goals!!! Let's Dance!!!!

Choreographer/Marketing Team Manager/Tour Manager
Aug 2007 - Nov 2010
NR Entertain Group/ 6103 Entertainment

On and off tour for 3+ years... I learned the fundamentals of being a touring artist.... The uncomfortably of traveling all the time, lack of sleep, and multiple personalities.... I also reaped the benefits of gaining multi-tasking skills, adjusting to spontaneity quickly, and organization. Pulling dancers/promo models together and teaching stage presence in hours' time before show time....was the biggest challenge that I faced every city; until I got the swing of things.

Dwan is an awesome teacher/choreographer. She is professional, and takes pride in the task set before her, rather it's big or small. I had the pleasure of working with her on a theatrical production last summer, and she did an awesome job. Looking forward to working with her in the future.

There is no hiding that Dwan loves what she does and she makes you feel it too. Dwan has great energy and a lot of knowledge to share, so it's hard not to get pumped up for her class. Dwan is great at interpreting the level of her stuents, so you will learn a lot and be challenged. In class, she highlights opportunities to incorporate your own sense of style or self, you never have to worry about fitting in, only missing out. I highly recommend any chance you get, to take a class with Dwan!

Dwan is amazing at putting together and teaching choreography. She makes it easy to learn and remember in such a short period of time. I was shocked by how much we accomplished after just one lesson.
