Mr. Johnson is a FABULOUS violin instructor. I haven't played in 20 years, and after a few lessons my technique is coming back. His teaching style is one where he pushes you beyond your expectations. He's an excellent teacher for beginners and experienced violinists. I also love that he is so talented in many genres of music...such a gifted violinist. Hope to play like him again soon. I highly recommend this teacher.

The young ladies of Virtuous Star, Inc."VSTAR" had an awesome opportunity to experience a step class taught by Shannan. Our girls had a great time learning how to step through a fun and exciting classroom environment! Her level of energy and enthusiasm was displayed and felt during the entire class period. She continued to push our girls through motivation and positive feedback. Lastly, Shannan is a professional, booking her for our class was easy! I totally recommend Shannan for any of your dance, step or cheer needs.

About Brittany

My name is Brittany and I'm in my 20's. I have learned a lot of dance forms and am aware of the methods and music involved. Please accept my resume which I have included with this letter.

I have been working as a dance instructor for the last five years and am really good and instructing and explaining the different dancing techniques. Dancing was always my passion since I was five, for that reason I have learned all genres of dance. This is a great art that helps me to express my emotions. I have done a lot of shows in different parts of the world. Some of my experiences are mentioned in
my resume. I would love to share this special talent of mine. In addition to all these, I am well experienced and have that patience to explain the techniques and steps over and over again.

Brittany is a master dance teacher. Period. As a dance teacher myself, I have had a chance to study with her and to observe her classes. She is one of the few teachers I have studied with and observed who is able to to take a student, no matter what their level might be--from never having danced before to experienced dancer--and make the class valuable and rewarding for them. For the beginner, Brittany is able to teach the fundamentals of movement in a way that is logical and where the student feels comfortable in the class from the first moment. (This is extremely important in that beginners often feel shy and awkward; and Brittany's puts them at ease from the start.) For the advanced dancer, Brittany has wonderful insights and exercises that bring new richness and quality of movement to the dance. I have been dancing for more years than I am willing to admit, and when I study with Brittany I always learn something new, useful, and inspiring in every class. I highly recommend her and encourage anyone who is interested in dance that forms deep connections to study with her!

Ms. Brittany's ability as an instructor extends beyond dance. It's obvious that she has spent a great deal of time thinking about presentation, how to be effective, and how to work well with others.

My experience with Ms. Brittany has been as a dance student (private lessons, small group lessons, and larger group lessons). In all of my experiences with Ms. Brittany I have been very happy with her instruction and her ability to deal fairly and directly with situations in a classroom environment.

Brittany is a masterful teacher, a wonderful facilitator and group leader. Whether you are a first-time dancer or have years of experience, a lesson with Brittany will leave you not only with clear improvements to and paths to growth for your dancing, but probably with some new ideas about life as well.

Choreographing Creatively | How to Choreograph a Dance
Curious about choreography? Get started with these simple methods and tips from New York City actor, dancer, and teaching artist Jasmine B...   Choreographing is an elusive art; sometimes we master it in moments, other times we can only sit in an empty studio with a pad of paper and our bodies in limbo.

Learning to Dance: What Should I Look for in an Instructor?

4 Fundamental Tap Dance Steps for Beginners
Good dancers can make even the most complicated, strenuous techniques look effortless and fluid. If you've ever watched an experienced dancer perform a tap routine, you probably watched in disbelief as their feet turned into a blur of movement that seemed to move independently from the rest of their body. Sometimes the sound effects are even more impressive; when done well, tap dance is a musical art form that creates its own rhythm. Do you want to train your own feet to create this unique mixt
