About Meagan

Hello, my name is Meagan D., and I have been living in the DC area for about 5 years. I attended Grand Valley State University in Grand Rapids, MI. I have my Bachelor's of Science Degree, a Michigan's Provisional Teacher's Certificate, and a Maryland Teacher's Certificate. My major was Mathematics

Meagan is very flexible and is a great teacher. She doesn't make the student feel self-conscious about answering wrong, She gently asks the student to explain how they came up with the answer and allows them to correct themselves. If the student doesn't realize their error during the explanation, she explains to the student wherein the equation they made an error. She also repeats the problem areas with the student until they have a full understanding of the process.

I sought Meagan out after my daughter came home with a failing grade in Algebra I. I am very happy with my selection, she is the perfect fit for my daughter. She is very flexible and I appreciate that she doesn't make my daughter feel like her lack of understanding of the subject matter makes her inadequate. I am going to continue hiring Meagan for the duration of the school year, my daughter really likes her and is learning far more than she is from her regular classroom environment.

Ballet is one style I would recommend to every single athlete. Ballet teaches body awareness and control. It elongates the body, builds flexibility and stamina. I love basic/beginner level ballet because it consciously helps you focus on every muscle and part body. With ballet technique under your belt other forms of dance can be picked up easier and athletes will have better grace and quicker transitions on the playing field.

Private Ballet Teacher

I am a teacher of 13 years and I love what I do!

Ballet is a great workout in addition to being the foundation for all technical dance. It's a great place to start and always to come back to. Ballet has many benefits to offer students at every level, which is why even Pro football players take it!

Through ballet lessons with me, you will stabilize find better balance and control, strengthen, tone, and elongate your muscles, have increased flexibility and mobilization, improve your coordination and confidence, and much more.

My ballet lessons cover basics of posture, placement, alignment, and turnout. We begin practicing essentials such as positions, plies, tendus, pirouettes and more. Once the student shows proficiency in these basics, we move into more advanced movement and choreography. There is strong focus on technical precision and skill to ensure students are learning the correct foundation so they get the maximum benefit out of their ballet lessons. ...

My daughter had her first lesson today with Jordan and she is so sweet and knows her stuff! Thanks Jordan!
James
Jordan is an extremely experienced and very talented instructor. Speaking for someone with extremely limited experience in dance, they were willing to put me at ease in order to clearly and directly guide me in terms of building an essential foundation of skills, while also showing the utmost patience and care to be constructive in correcting my many errors. They are also very prompt, very well organized, and professional with regards to contacting clients and working to ensure that the lessons are held online without difficulty. I would very highly recommend Jordan for anyone interested at any level of experience, particularly given their veteran skill and wealth of knowledge.

Excellent lessons with instruction from an experienced instructor. Easy to talk to and ask advice from, she provides energy and enthusiasm to each class (even when exhausted)!
Ava
Sarah is professional, personable and patient. She helps me troubleshoot any technical mishap on my end to proceed with our lesson. She is always on time for our session and beyond the voice exercises, Sarah answers my questions about the connection between our anatomy and voice. She is attentive and gives me valuable insight. I felt immediately confident about my voice after one session.
titus
I was really hopeful with seeing the videos and how she explained herself as an instructor on her profile.
sadly after the first lesson I was still a little hopeful but she showed up almost 15 minutes late to the lesson. With my daughter sitting there nervous and not knowing what's going on. this was not good. 😡
but not a big deal. So I was totally fine about that. The instructor did alright but was somewhat rude and negative and created awkward silences during this lesson. 😡 still not good but i was forgiving.
The second lesson she didnt even show up!! 😡😡😡
so she was sitting there for like 30 minutes trying to figure whats going on. not ok!!
i recommend this instructor to nobody!!!
beware of her because she seems nice but then will be rude and negative in the lesson.

"I started taking private lessons after a long hiatus from ballet. Briana is an excellent teacher, patient, and knowledgeable. I've progressed faster than I would have if I had only taken group classes. Briana's teaching style is fun and inspiring. She takes the time to discover where you are in your dance training and tailors the lessons to your goals while maintaining authority as a professional. I recommend Briana for any adult dancers who want to improve their technique and want focused, individual training."

"This was my first online lesson with Lindsay. I am a 64 year old woman who wants to learn ballet and in doing so become more flexible, agile and have better balance. Lindsay was very knowledgable, patient, and friendly. I felt that I was receiving real instruction and that we will make a good team together. Even though this was via FaceTime, I truly felt I had a one to one learning experience. Thank you, Linsday!"

"I have trained alongside Jennifer as a dancer and have seen her in action in the studio not only as the student but as the teacher. Her compassion, diligence, and dedication to sharing her own love of ballet with her students is admirable and shines through. She is dedicated to not only providing safe and polished technique and artistry but also to learning from her students and seeking out ways to improve herself.

Speaking as a peer, Jennifer's teaching style is a great hybrid between a technique-driven, traditional curriculum and a wholesome appreciation for the joy and spirit that keeps dance as a universal language. Students not only gain an understanding of the vocabulary but a safe space to develop discipline, strength and confidence."
