The best teacher ever!!! Super kind, engaging, patient! She adapts to any of your goals/teaching style! I love coming to class; I always leave with a smile no matter how I felt before :)

I started off doing hip hop with MissG, then we started doing more yoga and meditation which has been so fulfilling!

Our Grandson Caleb had his first Hip Hop lesson with Miss G last week. I highly recommend Miss G. She makes learning fun and interesting. She keeps things lite and low key and is able to keep Caleb focused. Miss G interacts with children exceptionally well. Caleb can't wait for his second lesson!!

MissG is awesome and highly recommend her. She is instructing my daughter and I for her sweet 16 father/daughter dance. She gave us great ideas for moves and great instruction on how to count and move to the music. I was worried about this dance coming together and definitely could not done it without her! We are set to do this dance in another 2 weeks and now feel confident about doing this.

My husband and went to Miss G because we were looking for someone to choreograph our first dance together at our wedding. We wanted something different and upbeat, and Miss G choreographed the perfect dance for us! She is a wonderful teacher, she's very patient (we never took dance lessons before and she walked us through every step!), and we had a wonderful time! I would highly recommend her! We have no regrets getting lessons from Miss G. She made it so fun!
