I am a teacher of 13 years and I love what I do!

Ballet is a great workout in addition to being the foundation for all technical dance. It's a great place to start and always to come back to. Ballet has many benefits to offer students at every level, which is why even Pro football players take it!

Through ballet lessons with me, you will stabilize find better balance and control, strengthen, tone, and elongate your muscles, have increased flexibility and mobilization, improve your coordination and confidence, and much more.

My ballet lessons cover basics of posture, placement, alignment, and turnout. We begin practicing essentials such as positions, plies, tendus, pirouettes and more. Once the student shows proficiency in these basics, we move into more advanced movement and choreography. There is strong focus on technical precision and skill to ensure students are learning the correct foundation so they get the maximum benefit out of their ballet lessons. Lessons may include barre (chair) or floor barre warm-up, stretching, conditioning, across the floor and more.

Since ballet is the foundation of all technical dance, it is the first place you should start if you’re looking to learn other styles of dance or even continue dancing on a more professional level. It is also the best training to revisit, as even it’s most basic exercises can always help improve technique. This makes ballet a great style of dance and exercise to practice at any age and level.

You will feel your physical progress and be left with a sense of overall well-being, as well as see your improvements and accomplishment as a dancer.

If you’re looking to:
-Learn to dance
-Improve overall strength
-Get stronger, more sculpted muscles
-Have better body awareness
-Increase flexibility
-Get better extension
-Increase joint mobility
-Improve balance & control
-Have better posture
-Increase stamina & endurance
-Improve coordination
-Improve technical skill
-Have more confidence
...Then Ballet is for you!

My lessons are personalized to suit you: your goals, progression, and timeline, so you'll get the most out of your lessons and enjoy the process along the way!

Our company Alignment Healthcare has been taking advantage of Take Lesson's dance classes for several months now, instructed virtually by Jordan Wentz. We have tried various types (burlesque, wedding dance, hip hop and more) and Jordan has done a terrific job with all of them! Our employees including myself have provided positive feedback all around and look forward to her lessons after the long work days, it has served as a perfect way to have active fun while learning new skills. Definitely recommend as the pace can be suitable and adjusted for different experience levels! We plan to continue with Jordan as our instructor with different courses each time.

I thoroughly enjoyed working with Jordan Wentz, not only did she help resurrect my acting dreams from the grave, but she as well, with the proper tools given, helped me get all that much closer to the stage, and for that I am forever thankful.

Jordan worked with me and my dad separately for months to choreograph and mix the best father daughter dance anyone has ever seen. From the music combination to every step, Jordan had a plan and was so patient with us as we learned and tweaked. We could not have done it without her. She is the best!

Jordan is an extremely experienced and very talented instructor. Speaking for someone with extremely limited experience in dance, they were willing to put me at ease in order to clearly and directly guide me in terms of building an essential foundation of skills, while also showing the utmost patience and care to be constructive in correcting my many errors. They are also very prompt, very well organized, and professional with regards to contacting clients and working to ensure that the lessons are held online without difficulty. I would very highly recommend Jordan for anyone interested at any level of experience, particularly given their veteran skill and wealth of knowledge.

I came to Jordan needing help with extreme deadlines. I was auditioning for a musical theater degree with a large number of colleges and while I had a good amount of experience singing and acting, I was practically new to dance. Online, she was able to help me prepare for audition pre-screens, learn dance basics rapidly, and feel less anxiety about dance auditions. As a result, I was able to receive many MT acceptances and get into my dream school. Thank you Jordan for being patient with me and helping me learn at my own pace while moving fast enough to meet my goals. You’re the best!
