2007

Learn to move, improve your dancing, get great exercise, gain confidence and have fun! Whether you are new to dance or are looking to refine your existing skills, I will help you reach your goals.

I am a teacher of twelve years and I love what I do! I enjoy helping my students reach their goals while having fun along the way. My favorite part about teaching is watching my students improve in ability and, more importantly, confidence, and knowing that I was able to be a helpful part of their process.

I am a choreographer, dancer, performance artist, model, and actress who has has been in music videos, commercials, TV, film, and more, so I am very familiar with the industry. I have worked with companies like Reebok, Disney, American Idol, Fox, NBC, Heineken, Universal and more. I have choreographed, taught, and performed around the world for over a decade, and I enjoy sharing my knowledge with those who want to learn, get some good exercise, and have a great time!

I am a versatile teacher with experience in many areas of dance, fitness, theater, character, circus, and more. I've taught all ages and levels, so anyone is welcome -especially beginners!

I am a former member of Unity LA, under the direction of Dancing with the Stars Emmy Winner, Tessandra Chavez, as well as the non-profit dance company, MusEffect- dedicated to raising awareness of social issues through performance. I have collaborated with distinguished circus troupes such as The Lucent Dossier Experience, Zen Arts, Cirque Berzerk, and others, with whom I continue to perform internationally.

I have done music videos for Cody Simpson, Bassnectar, Claude VonStroke and Bruno Furlan, Beats Antique, Lafa Taylor, Nash Overstreet, Japanese icon Namie Amuro, Ray Quinn from Britain’s Idol, and more. I have appeared on Parks and Recreation, The Disney Channel's So Random, Bring It On: Fight to the Finish, Fox Atomic’s The Comebacks, TruTV's Fake Off, and The Dance Network's Steady Mobbin’, and commercials for Tresemme, eHarmony, El Jimador, and HTV Network, amongst others.

I have also worked on Michelle Obama's “Let’s Move Burbank” Campaign, The Giffoni Film Festival, The Probowl, The Orange County Film Festival, KROQ Radio, Coachella Music Festival, The Wallis Annenberg Center for the Performing Arts, The American Cancer Society, Bettis Richardson on his international tour, and popular rock band Lifehouse.

I am outgoing, friendly, and fun, but most importantly-I love what I do! I enjoy sharing my passion and knowledge with my students, and focus on inspiring creativity, encouraging self-confidence, and cultivating personal achievement in everyone I work with!

I teach online via TakeLessons Classroom, at my primary studio, and at a larger studio (for Tap and group lessons) *addt'l. rental fee req'd-please inquire for more info. I am also available for group lessons or semi-privates (more than 1 person)! *Please inquire for more info.

I never write reviews but for Jordan I must! I’m so inspired by her talent, her presence and her graciousness. Each class I learn something new and I get to sweat my insides out and most importantly, I leave Jordan’s class with a huge smile on my face that usually lasts me until next class! Get jordy-fied!
