Lesson Details


Levels Taught:
Beginner, Intermediate, Advanced

Hi students! I am a professional ballet/Broadway dancer with 25+ years of training and experience. I have taught at Ballet Academy East (nationally recognized for its well crafted syllabus and meticulous technique) in both the young children's pre-ballet program and the Pre-Professional Graded Level. As a student, I have attended San Francisco Ballet, Pacific Northwest Ballet, American Ballet Theater in NYC, and Central PA Youth Ballet before working on Broadway in Phantom of the Opera and with The Metropolitan Opera in Lincoln Center.

With my lessons we can work on improving strength/technique, preparing for an audition, or coaching through a variation. Not only will you gain strength and technique, but also insight into the industry from a seasoned professional. You will also leave with exercises you can practice at home for rapid improvement.

*For adults and older children/teens, studio space will be rented and subject to availability and additional fees. Contact as soon as possible to insure availability.

Teaching since:

Janice is a 200-hr RYT through Pure Yoga in NYC and has over 10 years of yoga training and experience. She first took a Bikram yoga class to supplement her ballet training and soon realized her yoga practice was going to be much more. She found the meditation exercises that helped her into challenging poses were just as empowering and effective in conquering the challenges of everyday life.

Janice honors the integrity of traditional yoga teachings while making them practical in today's world. Her class is centered around the vinyasa technique of breath and fluidity between poses. She teaches yoga for inner peace, strength, joy, a quiet mind, and the highest self.

Before teaching yoga, Janice worked as a technology investment analyst at a hedge fund, as well as a professional Broadway and ballet dancer.

Janice is one of the best! Her extensive dance background along with her yoga studies make her such a well rounded teacher. Her class was a perfect balance of strength and stretching and her adjustments to my form were very much appreciated. In my short time taking with her I've already noticed big changes in my body and I'm excited to continue my studies with her. Janice is a lovely person, true professional, and has the patience to work with people at all levels. I'm very thankful to have found her and highly recommend her to all!
