Private & Group Dance Classes and Choreography for Kids & Adults

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. 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.

-1-on-1 lesson including a warm-up, body conditioning, stretching, & cool down

Daniela
Salsa lessons with Colombian Prof learn and practice!
I am Daniela, Colombian, psychologist and dance teacher for over 7 years. I have experience teaching salsa, hip hop, jazz, classical ballet and choreography for weddings. Before I gave salsa lessons in Barcelona, ​​and now I'm in Brussels to continue spreading the joy of salsa. Normally I teach either an hour or an hour and a half, and you can choose if you want to do several hours a week. Also you can choose to take classes alone or in pairs. The course begins with a warm up of the body to activate the muscles and go into salsa mode, then, depending on the level, exercises to understand and learn rhythm, basic movements or steps or more complex tricks and we end up with a free practice to strengthen also the ability to improvise, because finally the salsa is that ... It is a dynamic course, which maintenance and which will allow you to work the coordination, the rhythm and to have a good time. I can give classes in French, English or Spanish.

Miroljuba
Contemporary and stretching classes, average body condition
I am offering contemporary dance classes including a very conscious warm-up and stretching session after the class. Depending on your level I adjust the class for your personal needs and interests. I am also offering average body condition and figure development classes. During the last 15 years of constant studying beside my main focus the contemporary dance I had the possibility to learn other dance styles as Bulgarian folk dance, jazz ballet, classical ballet and related arts like yoga, capoeira, pantomime, theater and juggling. I would like to share some of this knowledge as well, if interested.

Marijke
Creating/ improving body awareness through yoga, dance, stretching
Starting with gymnastics and dance since my early age, it always kept being a really important part of my life. It made me going into a world of performing acrobatics, teaching gymnastics/ stretching to children and adults (private and group classes). To my classes I find it very important to get people into their bodies in a way that it increases your own body awareness. Im able to teach various techniques but more focus will be on listening and being fair, understanding to your bodies needs.

Indonesian Traditional Dance
Indonesian cultures have known as the one of the ancient culture in the world yet they survive until now, which also still performanced in some special occassions. I realised that as a human, we can not be separated with art and culture, and I proudly say that learning Indonesian Traditional Dances, especially Javanese Dance that I'll try to introduce you, will enrich and enlighten our soul, especially because they have a lot of values and meanings in every step, they train your patience as well because it's not easy to dance Indonesian, that's what make it precious and rare.

Jo
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.
