Lesson Details

Dance

Levels Taught:
Beginner, Intermediate, Advanced
I began dancing at the age of six and trained throughout the country at some of the best schools including The Rock Center for Dance in Las Vegas and Broadway Dance Center in New York City. Locally I attended the Philadelphia High School for the Creative and Performing Arts, where I trained under professors Wayne St. David and Shawn-Lamere Williams of Eleone Dance Theatre.

I started teaching and booked my first professional gig fifteen years ago and have been performing and sharing my experience with my students ever since. As a teacher I am passionate about proper technique and increasing the personal character of my students, but also about making class a fun,positive experience! I truly love what I do!

If you have any questions please do not hesitate to contact me and I cannot wait to work with you !

Teaching since:
September 1998

Having been trained in Classical Ballet, Jazz, Tap, Modern, African, Hip Hop Dance and Tumbling for over twenty years, I can assure you that you or your child will learn proper technique and will receive all of the physical benefits my dance, fitness and tumbling lessons have to offer ! Aside from being a lot of fun, learning these modalities increases confidence, encourages discipline and drive and optimizes flexibility, balance and strength !

I have been an instructor for over fifteen years ! Teaching is my most loved passion. Some of my professional achievements include managing the group exercise program for two of Sweat Fitness Corporation’s eight locations in the Philadelphia area, being chosen to warm up over 200 prospective Philadelphia Eagles Cheerleaders at their auditions and more recently being chosen to coach at one of Las Vegas' only junior Olympic training facilities. I have also had a wonderful professional dance career, I toured the east coast as an African Dancer and was featured on several television programs dancing. Lastly, I am very well educated in Kinesiology, Psychology and Nutrition so I can always be heard giving different age appropriate health and wellness tips throughout my classes. I believe health and wellness is very important at every age !

I would like to thank you very much for taking the time to read my profile, I hope to share my gift of teaching with you and your family. Have a lovely day !

Vanessa is an amazing instructor she is really great with children of all ages my daughter started taking private lessons with her a few months ago. She loved it so much that she started telling her friends and before you knew it her cousins and girlfriends started joining the class she is very patient with the girls and her classes are lots of fun I even participated in a few classes myself :)

Vanessa's tumbling classes have been a great addition to our school! She does a great job teaching our 2, 3 and 4 year old.

Vanessa teachers Gymnastics to our Older Toddlers and Preschoolers. The children enjoy the activities and routines she brings to our center bi-weekly. She is very patience and active with our students. We highly recommend Vanessa's services.
