About Briana
Briana has enjoyed teaching since she was a teaching assistant at Detroit Windsor Dance Academy, her high school dance studio. Since then she has taught students within Washington DC Public Schools, the University of Michigan Recreation Center, the Capitol Hill Arts Workshop, Morton Street Dance Center, District Dance Arts, as well as many other studios and non-profit organizations. Teaching allows her to express herself, pass on her knowledge and experiences and inspire students to develop their technique, creativity, individuality and showmanship.

There is never a dull moment in Briana’s classes! Her specific classes and lesson plans are catered to specific age groups from Pre-K to adults. They consist of engaging movement activities, warm-up, and complex movement combinations. She is an energetic and patient teacher who seriously
takes into account the needs and skill level of the student in preparing her lesson plans and material.

Briana’s use of dance vocabulary and physical demonstrations allow her to teach the material accurately and effectively. Her positive attitude and constant words of encouragement keep students motivated and engaged in the lesson. Students will increase their knowledge and physical vocabulary of the movement style and leave each lesson a better dancer, performer and person.

She received her Bachelor’s of Fine Arts in Dance and Bachelors of Arts in Sociology from the University of Michigan in May of 2013 and has had a wide range of professional experience. She has worked with and performed works by modern dance choreographers such as Lindsey Merchant, Melissa Beck, Germaul Barnes, Jessica Fogel, Christopher Huggins, Shen Wei and Dianne McIntyre. She was artistic director of a chapter of the international hip-hop dance company Dance2XS International.

Briana was a full-time company member with StepAfrika!, a professional stepping company in Washington, DC from 2013-2015 and currently, she is working with CityDance resident artist S.J. Ewing & Dancers. Briana has had the privilege of performing at DC's City Rhythms Festival, Catholic Universities Hartke Theater, the Hill Center, the VelocityDC Festival, the Guantanomo Bay Naval Base as well as others. Recently she was invited to perform a modern dance solo in Dance Place’s 2014 New Releases Choreographers Showcase and Joy of Motions 2014 Dance Project Concert. Most recently, she served as the assistant choreographer on the American Theater’s Company’s production of The Project(s) in Chicago, IL, rated 4 stars by the Chicago Tribune. Most recently, she collaborated with Hard Soles Dance Company on a new piece titled “Re:set”, combining contemporary dance and body percussion, for the 2016 March on Washington Film Festival in honor of the 70th anniversary of the integration of the NFL and was chosen as Dance Place's 2016 New Releases Commission Recipient in support her new work to be premiered the summer of 2017.

Briana encourages students to bring writing materials to each lesson to take notes for any learned vocabulary and each lesson will follow with a recorded video of the movement for the students to refer to until the next lesson.

I'm extremely new to ballet and dance in general (for reference I'm 16). Briana was very patient and an amazing teacher! Very friendly and welcoming while still being very professional. It's great to get the exact corrections I need without feeling bad about it and yet still work on it until proper. Very happy and pleased!

About Jared
I've been dancing for 10 years and teaching for 3. I currently teach at 5 different studios and give regular private lessons to various students. I've taken workshops and classes from the best dancers in the industry today including Matt Steffanina, Marty Kudelka, Jaquel Knight, Ysabelle Capitule, Nick Demoura, and many more. Their credits include Beyonce, Justin Timberlake, Usher, Justin Bieber, Bruno Mars, and the Step Up movies.

In my class, I'll give you a warm-up to understand the style of movements that are essential to Hip-Hop and then we'll jump right into my choreography going at whatever pace is comfortable for you. Once you're a regular student, I'll make unique routines to songs of your choosing with an emphasis on moves or styles that you like.

About Christopher
In all my work, I achieve high-quality results by striving for perfection, but remaining light-hearted and flexible. My flexibility allows each unique student to find their niche, and my light-heartedness makes learning fun! I give students many opportunities to share their unique progress; recently, some of my students performed in my Master’s degree lecture-recital, which included all original compositions.

Fun and flexibility are important, but so are credentials. I received a master’s degree in piano performance pedagogy at Arizona State University (ASU), and a bachelor’s degree in piano performance and music education from the Crane School of Music at State University of New York Potsdam. Apart from degrees, in the past ten years alone, I have taught private lessons, piano masterclasses, ASU group piano classes, ASU Prep Program s
tudents, K-12 music ensembles, a collegiate jazz choir, college vocal students, and more. Currently, I work for the internationally renowned Faber Piano Adventures, arranging pop hits for the PreTime to BigTime Hits books.

As a member of Arizona State Music Teachers Association (ASMTA) and Music Teachers National Association (MTNA), I can offer students performance and competition opportunities, and I can participate in professional development activities. At organization conferences, I present frequently on music technology and innovative teaching. Recently, at the 2018 Collegiate Piano Pedagogy Symposium, I placed in a “best idea” competition, and the organization invited me to repeat another presentation at the 2018 MTNA National Conference. Currently, I serve as the ASMTA Honors Recital Chair, organizing a competition which occurs during the ASMTA state conference.

As a musician, I am forever learning to be a “jack of all trades.” In my performances, I perform difficult classical piano works, sing Billboard Top 100 pop songs, feature guest student performances, and perform original compositions. Separately, I have placed in classical competitions, produced a Pop Song album for iTunes, played and sang with a variety of bands, and composed piano pieces for students of all levels.

If you are looking for a unique, quality education, then look no further! I'm very excited to begin a musical journey with you.

My son, Jack who is now 11 has been taking piano lessons since he was 3, but was starting to plateau in his learning. About a year ago we switched instructors, and Chris has made a world of difference. Chris' lessons are challenging and fun. Even I can hear how much Jack has grown as a piano player since we made the switch. Chris is personable, professional and great with kids. I also love the fact that he holds recitals, which gives the kids a chance to showcase their hard work and talents. I highly recommend him for this age group. Also, you should hear him play the songs he composes himself! Very talented individual.

Instead of filling in all my credits below, it's much easier to go to IMDB and look up my name: Kristina Hayes.
You can not only see my credits, there is a link to my acting/dance website where you can view various acting reels and television performances as well as clips of comedy shorts I've made over the years. And you'll probably see that I also teach ballroom dance if that's of any interest to you!

*Please note that I've had a background check on another site and don't wish to pay for it again at this time, but I can see about forwarding you that information. If it's not possible to forward, I'll be sure to get a background check done here as well :)

As with any profession, actors have tools. Just as a doctor needs a stethoscope or a fireman needs a hose, there are certain items an actor must keep in their toolbox.

None of these is a wrong answer. Being an actor or artist is subjective and everyone's process is different and valid. But t
