About Sarah
Hello and Welcome!
My name is Sarah and I am honored you have chosen to look at my profile. Finding the right teacher is so important! I always try to make sure that I accommodate what is best for each individual student when I approach teaching. Before we get into my teach methods, let me tell you a bit about myself and my background.
I graduated from Lees-McRae College in May 2017 with a BFA in musical theater and a minor in art and design. I know at a glance it may be overwhelming how many classes I teach. You see, as Musical Theatre Major I had to learn a VAST amount of topics. I studied many forms of dance, took advance makeup courses, vocal training, acting, along with all of the sub categories that go with it; not to mention with my minor in art and design I know my way around with a paint brush/camera/computer. Art, in all form
s are has always been my way of expressing, feeling, and embracing life.
When I had my internship at the Arkansas Arts Center Children's Theatre and I had to learn ALL aspects of theatre and I had the pleasure to work with kids every day.

I was training American Sign Language at Northern Virginia Community College back in 2012. In 2015 I studied under an ASL master from Gallaudet University. I have continued to further my knowledge of ASL every day. I was recently the ASL captain at work who helped make sure all signs were done correctly and expressed properly.

My goal is to help you learn what you are craving to know! I try to not charge too high for lessons, I know that this is something that is for fun and is not always a possibility so I try to keep it at a lowish price so that everyone has a chance to learn. I am very flexible to schedules. I am willing to have a regular time or switching it up weekly; I have students who travel for a living so they are always on a different time zone; no matter the obstacle I will make it work for you!
Something that is great to know about me is that I never stop training, pursuing growth and knowledge. I read books in these various fields to learn more and more, take master classes, and train with my own vocal coaches. I think art - on any platform, is a great way to get out of your head, free your mind, and open up yourself. So this can be for professional training, a hobby you always wanted to pursue, or a dream you wanted to chase after.

In my class with you, or you child, I will make an individualized lesson plan that focus around what skills you already have, what skills you aim to improve/gain, and how you learn. I am very familiar with the fact that we are ALL different, which means we will all learn DIFFERENTLY. I am willing to explain something in as many ways as one needs in order to understand. I like to think of my lessons as a “safe place” to explore, have fun, grow, and be okay with making mistakes. We will always start with the basics, understand the core of the craft - for example in singing that would be our vocal anatomy and how it all connects together. I use props to help make the concept more visual and graspable as well as diagrams. This is not something someone will pick up in one lesson, so don’t come in saying “I can’t”, you can, you just have to learn HOW. I will show you the how. Remember, this is a learning process, we must embrace each step of our growth.
-----
Some background of how I came to do what I do:
I have been working professionally for theatres for five years now; which has had me living in various towns in NC, OH, AR, and traveling nationwide for tours. I have a lot of experience under my belt for my years. I began taking performance classes as young as age 2 when I started ballet, then I began singing in choir in third grade. I started being in awe of sign language when I saw an interpreter working her magic around age ten and I asked my mom for a sign language book. Expanding my knowledge is what I do for fun, so when you pick me you pick someone who is constantly growing and learning more which will ultimately benefit the student.

I teach a variety of classes that, for the most part, circle around the arts! Some of my classes include, but are not limited to: Acting, Child Acting, Improv Audition Prep, Various styles of “Singing” classes, Ear Training, Musical Theatre, Music Performance, Various “Art” classes, Facial Exercises (Which is great for singers, and those who speak a lot day to day to help relieve tension in the face), and more!
For an explanation on each class, I will be recording a video that describes them and posting that on here soon! There is a video trailer of me singing and dancing that is currently available. If you want to know anything more at all please do not hesitate to send me a message and I will respond as quickly as I possibly can!

About Sara
Hello! I'm Sara!

I started dancing at the age of 3. I am well versed in Ballet, Modern and Jazz. I attended Joffrey San Antonio (2004) and Paul Taylor New York (2010) intensives.

While in high school I taught Ballet, Jazz, Pre-Pointe and Pointe classes to dancers age 3-14.

In 2011 I graduated from the University of Oklahoma with a Bachelor of Fine Arts in Ballet Pedagogy (which is the art or science of teaching).

Since moving to NYC 5 years ago I have been focused on performing with such dance companies as Exit 12 Dance Company (2011-2012) and Community Dance Project (2013-2014). While not dancing with specific companies I have choreographed and danced in two music videos.

I can't express my love for teaching enough! To know that I could help spark the passion of dance in a young person is extremely inspiring.

Please inc
lude your area and availability in your messages!

I would prefer to teach students with professional or aerobic goals. Social dancing is not one of my subjects.

Sara was very nice and went over basic steps and postures thoroughly, correcting mine. I learned some basics I didn't pick up for years of ballet classes and truly appreciate her being so thoughtful and attentive to the details. I also brought questions on certain steps I couldn't master. Sara patiently showed how to start the steps and how to do them better. I already look forward to my second lesson with Sara!

About Jason
With over two decades of martial arts and fitness training, I've enjoyed watching hundreds of people grow. It’s amazing to see someone change into the person they never thought they could be. Over the years adults have mentioned many times about the impact our training has on their lives. They walk a little taller, speak a little louder and take comfort in the new found confidence they have in themselves. It's been such pleasure working with them. They become like family.

Are you ready for a change? If so, let connect and see if we're a good fit!

Best regards,

Master Jason Elkins

About Tyler
I am a current D3 men's soccer college athlete at Ursinus College in Pennsylvania, however I live in Severna Park, Maryland.

I have been fully invested in sports, fitness, lifting, and dieting since middle school. I've done it all; bulked, cut, maintained. I've had success and had failure. I know the ins and outs. I recently lost 20 pounds in 1 and a half months in my last cut. All of my clients have had great success! Can't wait to help you on your journey!

At the age of 14, I was already playing semi-pro soccer. I have been playing the sport since I was 4 years old, and have played at some of the highest levels. I have played in the USYS National League, played in top tournaments in the nation, won state championships, as well as competed for regional and national championships.

I spent my first semester at Ithaca Col
lege, where I backed up an All-American; I had 4 appearances, with 2 starts, winning both games, and only conceiting 1 goal in all appearances.
I will be transferring to Ursinus college for the rest of my college career.

I coach/teach soccer players of all ages. I have been coaching for several years now, and my athletes have made large strides. I will coach all positions, and can even go into specifics such as speed and agility, ball work, shooting, condition, etc.

I love to mentor students who want to become the best at what they put their efforts towards. I look forward to meeting you and helping you become a better athlete!
