About Me

There is never a dull moment in class! Each specific class and lesson plan are catered to specific age groups from Pre-K to adults. They consist of engaging movement activities, warm-up, and complex movement combinations in all styles includig ballet, jazz, hip hop, stepping, modern, contemporary and social dance. I am an energetic and patient teacher who seriously takes into account the needs and skill level of the student in preparing the lesson plans and material.

My use of dance vocabulary and physical demonstrations allow me to teach the material accurately and effectively. My 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.

I encourage 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.

All Private Sessions Include/Cover:
-1-on-1 lesson including a warm-up, body conditioning, stretching, & cool down

I am a professional dancer who has completed the 200 Yoga Teacher Training at Samyak Yoga in Mysore, India. My training is focused on the physical & mental state within yoga as well as breathing techniques called Pranayama to assist the practice and improve overall well-being. All of my private and group classes focus on making the yoga practice accessible for all practitioners from absolute beginners to advanced students. I believe Yoga is a shared experience that requires equal commitment from the teacher as well as the student. I make sure that students have a solid understanding of the postures, their benefits as well as the transitions between then to create a strong practice on and off the mat. I am always prepared to challenge the student as well as adapt to their needs.

Salsa and bachata lessons for beginners/intermediates
Are you tired of going to a club and staying in your corner with your friends to dance in a rough way on reggaeton? Don't you want to dance together to lively music and be able to meet lots of people who love dancing? I give lessons to master the basics and know how to move with a partner without always taking the same step. 1 hour of lesson is 30 min of solo steps then 30 min of two steps. I will adapt the rhythm according to your level ^^

Each One Teach one. Suitable for beginners and all levels
HipHop Depending on the level, each class will begin with a brief warm up consisting of grooves, isolations, stretching and basic co-ordination drills. Beginner classes tend to work on the above for the first half an hour of class, as well as adding cross floors, while more experienced classes may spend less time on the basics as dancers are expected to have this knowledge. HipHop classes are available in various levels with various instructors. All of my classes will learn choreography each class (with the exception of HipHop Foundation/Technique classes). HipHop Foundations & HipHop Technique Whether you are a brand new dancer looking to learn the basics or an experienced dancer wanting to perfect your technique, these are the classes where you will grow the most! Focusing on grooving, execution, texture, isolations as well as touching on various street styles such as, Waving, Locking, improvisation, tools and more Teaching about musicality, rhythm and co-ordination, grooves and super funky moves! also progress the awareness of the body this short-term program is perfect for any dancer wanting to get an early start to their dance training! Breakdance Each class is divided into age groups and will begin as an 'open level' option until we can better determine the levels of dancers within the classes. We will focus on the foundation of breakdance and learn things such as, toprock, downrock, six-step, c-c and touch on freezes and power moves as the class level progresses. Improvisation` This course is designed for anyone curious about the practice of improvisation. Dancers and non- dancers alike are welcome. The skills developed in this class are applicable to any creative process as well as to everyday life. In this class we engage in exercises and improvisational structures to heighten our awareness, broaden our individual movement vocabulary and develop our skills in instant composition. The class also introduces basic partnering skills and often involves optional performance opportunities. This is a dynamic class that fosters both the ability to work in ensemble as well as strengthening the individual’s personal aesthetics and movement style. Dance improvisation is the process of spontaneously creating movement. Development of improvised movement material is facilitated through a variety of creative explorations including body mapping through levels, shape and dynamics schema. ... The Contemp / Improv class will make time for improvisation. Dance Improvisation Definition: Dance improvisation is not only about creating new movement, but is also defined as freeing the body from habitual movement patterns. ... As a dancer improvisation is important because it assists students to think on the spot, make quick decisions, and trust their technique.bring

INTENSIVE PRIVATE LATIN DANCE LESSONS (SALSA, BACHATA MERENGUE, CHACHA, CARIBBEAN ZOUK, KUDURU-AFRICAN DANCE, BRAZILIAN ZOUK)
Private lessons / intensive training in Latin Dances (Cuban Salsa, Salsa Porto / LA, Bachata, Merengue, Chacha, West Indian Zouk, Kuduru-African dance, Brazilian Zouk*) (* = it's THE dance of the moment that paradoxically has nothing zouk or anything Brazilian - today it's pop music for two, mixing creativity, sensuality, air fluidity that plays a lot with the movements of bust, head and body undulations.) METHODOLOGY Learn dance and let talk about your body / emotions, make the difference in the evening ("social dancing") or prepare an event (wedding for example): Focused on pedagogy, technique and pleasure, the dance space offers personalized and individualized courses of Salsa (porto on 1, Cuban), Bachata, Merengue, Kuduru-African dance, Zouk Antillais, Zouk Brazilian (pop music) (...) according to your desires. Objective: to adapt to your request and your desire. In the eyes of many neophytes, a couple who dance well performs spectacular figures. To dance is to tell / live together a story, to produce beauty in movement and to make the steps, the attitudes and the connections between the various actions aesthetic / harmonious. This fluidity is born of emotion, felt and transmitted. Simplicity, communication, listening, sharing, emotion, valorization of the other: it is, in addition to technical knowledge (body expression, rhythmic, visual), what you will improve during this training at evolutive levels. In a friendly atmosphere, you will be taken in hand whatever your initial level. Objective: a combination between on the one hand, intuition / feeling / improvisation and on the other hand, technique. It is possible to take the course in couple or solo. According to your desire, it is possible to propose 70% of a 1st dance, 30% of another complementary dance, the bases of the one influencing the other. Whether you're preparing "choreography" for a special event (wedding, birthday, work, etc.), a show, or just looking to improve your skills to impress on the dance floor, the end learning of these classes is to : * perform a beautiful interpretation of the music with appropriate movements, in addition to performing a dynamic work that involves a footwork and body movements adapted * execute an appropriate technique that will allow you to shine quickly on the dance floor, relying on the strong point of private lessons * Set up style, movement, footwork, and adjusted body coordination, allowing for rapid dance progression, while taking advanced base steps and a variety of movements, allowing you to not only acquire a sensual style but also to improve his own improvisational abilities, focusing on the characteristics of modern dance. * work on your balance, your musicality, your body strength (...), while having fun, while you train and radically improve your body coordination. In summary, these courses are at the beginner level (basic steps with some general variations), intermediate (faster speed and more concentration on technique, body mechanics, control, footwork, posture, balance and more complex movements) or advanced (for slightly more experienced dancers). Statistically, the progression following these private sessions is quickly noticeable, from 2 or 3 sessions *. (* study 2020) To respond to requests received, it is indeed possible to offer this course (birthday, party, christmas, event ...) to the person of your choice. TEACHER / TRAINER Trained at the Grande Ecole post-preparatory classes & Ivy League University in the United States, our teacher trainer has specialized and worked for more than 15 years, in Europe and North America, in the field, in renowned international public and private establishments, regularly participating in forums and conferences, and also offering personalized INDIVIDUAL support, with pedagogy and meticulous methodology as the watchwords. PLACES, LANGUAGES ✓ Locations: Geneva-Lausanne-Fribourg-Zurich-Neuchâtel-Lugano-Montreux-Basel-Neuchâtel-Bern-Lucerne-Brussels-Luxembourg-Paris-Lyon. But currently, these sessions continue to be offered by videoconference in the current context, in the continuity of the national recommendations on the Covid and in accordance with the general request which wants to be unanimous on this subject. ✓ Apart from the classic advantages of videoconferencing (time saving related to travel & their unforeseen events, eco-responsibility, increased schedule flexibility, etc.), the quality of the session & the interaction remain the same. In addition, the entire exchange is immediately transcribed by the coach on the dedicated chat. ✓ Languages: French / English. ✓ Progress following these private sessions is noticeable from 1 to 2 sessions (*study 2021). ✓ As other people do regularly, you can also please your loved ones by offering gift vouchers available all year round.

Basic/intermediate/advanced Spanish classes taught by a native

As a Spanish native, I offer a Spanish course in which to learn both grammar, vocabulary and day-to-day communication. I cover teaching systems from school support to conversation assistant, in order to offer practical and dynamic learning. The objectives are set by the student, but as a teacher, I like to ensure fluency in language and understanding.

Salsa lessons + new encounters
Hello everyone!!! :-) Friday salsa lessons will finally resume !!! :-) This event is for anyone who wants to learn LA salsa as quickly and efficiently as possible. We are learning to learn salsa in an evolutionary way. In other words, we will begin with footsteps and basic figures that will fit into more and more complex figures. A fairly regular participation is therefore recommended even if the steps will be briefly recalled later. We insist that you must practice what has been seen, otherwise you will forget, thus making your evolution difficult. That's why we invite you to stay for the dance party from 11pm to rehearse directly with your new friends. PROGRAM: 20h-21h: Beginners 0 (those who have never danced) 21h-22h: Beginners 1 and Intermediaries (those who already have the basics) 22h-23h: Advanced (those who already have some control) 23h: Salsa evening to practice directly with your classmates and other dancers. How will 1h of classes be held? Beginners 0, 1 and Intermediaries: - no basic and solo movements: 15 minutes for Beginners 1 and Intermediates; 25mn for beginners 0 - learning and control of rhythm: 5mn - reminder of the previous figure (and / or questions): 10 mn (only for beginners 1 and Intermediaries) - figure of the day and practice on music: 30 mn Advances: - warm-up, solos, shines: 20 mn - reminder of the previous figure + questions: 10 mn - figure of the day + practice on music: 30mn In order to offer optimal quality and follow you individually, we limit participants to 20 per class.

Kizomba / semba class with a Latin and African dance enthusiast
Having learned with the best, I also travel a lot in order to better train myself. In kizomba, no diploma hesitates to date or even competitions. This dance comes to us from Angola, a country rich in culture and that is mainly what should be remembered from this dance. I will try to convey as much as possible to you so that you can best discover this magnificent dance.

contemporary dance (how to make your dance and performance)
This class is open to everyone who want to do dance and also people who have interests to make your performance and dance as a dance maker. I studied some dance techniques (ballet, post modern dance, hiphop etc.) outside school in Tokyo Japan. And I finished bachelor of Sculpture and master of New Media performance in Tokyo University of the Arts. Now currently working as a freelance artist and doing master of dance in P.A.R.T.S. at Brussels. The content of this class depends on what you want to learn from the class and will be considered to your needs. Basically, we start worm up exercises and do a very short choreography for solo and using those movements we do dance with other people using basic contact movements and also do some improvisations.
