Private Dance Teacher

I’m available to teach private lessons for teens and adults interested in learning to do tap or ballet for the first time, or who want to improve their skills. My strengths are patience, enthusiasm, and an unusual way of approaching dance. I’m not famous or particularly interested in becoming famous, so if that’s your goal, I’m not the right teacher for you. I strongly believe everyone can dance, and should. All bodies can learn to dance and enjoy themselves. Dance should be joyful, about self-expression, and a way of learning about your body and your spirit. Finally, I believe it’s never too late to start learning something new, and your bucket list should not wait until you retire.

About Kristen

I started dance later in life -- tap at 19 and ballet at 31 -- because I was so tall and awkward as a child. It never occurred to me that people my size could be dancers. I fell in love with dance as an escape from a stressful job teaching high school history. I saw such changes in myself the more

More than incredible first experience, no question I will return and invest more time with her. She is extremely warm, personable and really knows her stuff. So happy to have found her!
Miranda
Kristen is a human that makes her students feel immediately at ease. She is kind, quirky, and hilarious, but more importantly, she is patient and meets students where they are to ultimately fulfill their potential and their goals. I first started taking tap classes from Kristen a few years ago as a nervous adult (25 yo) seeking a bare bones beginner tap class. Since then, having incorporated exercises, games, and routines to awesome music, I have come leaps and bounds, built up my courage and confidence, and am proud to officially feel part of the tap community. If you’re looking for an excellent teacher, regardless of experience level, look no further!

Ellen was wonderful to work with! She really made the attendees for our virtual conference comfortable enough to be on camera. Our attendees had a blast and the class was a wonderful way to unwind and have fun after a long day of zoom meetings. I would highly recommend working with Ellen.
Weare Z.
When I purchased a series of lessons for my partner and me, I really didn't know what to expect, beyond the forced focus on steps and postures drilled into me as a boy in cotillion. What we experienced was an accomplished professional, who helped us understand what dancing and moving together really means. Ellen is a giving, forgiving, funny, and intuitive teacher. We opened each lesson with exercises to simply bring ourselves into our bodies. Ellen taught us about beat and provided us choreography to practice, but more she helped us to realize that dancing together and responding to each other's movements and energy allows us to enjoy and even look good on the dance floor. Ellen gave us an awareness as much as a structure. We looked forward to every lesson and will return to her as we evolve. She is a master of what she does and knows and is generous and joyous in sharing.

My son loves talking class with Ms. Ellen. She is so energetic and good with kids.

I’m very passionate about teaching and dancing and I make sure that everyone’s dance journey is filled with fun, friendship, understanding.

"Michael helped my wife and I get ready for our first dance for our wedding. Without him we wouldn't have been able to pull it off. He helped us learn so much in an extremely quick time schedule (about a month before the big day). Everything was easy going and fun. All of us joked a lot which made both my wife and I a lot less nervous. At the same time everything was extremely professional. He always helped us choose the best ways to do all the moves and showed us extra stuff to add if we felt we could do them on the day of. Michael, from the little time we knew him, is kind, sincere, and downright awesome. We can't thank him enough for how much he helped us."

Crystal took her time to show me (at the time a non dancer) all of those dances and now I am no longer a beginner!! Now Crystal has asked me to travel with her to several dance conferences. We have also done a few routines together! One of the venues was at the Phillips Arena!! AMAZING!"

Online, she was able to help me prepare for audition pre-screens, learn dance basics rapidly, and feel less anxiety about dance auditions. As a result, I was able to receive many MT acceptances and get into my dream school.
