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.

All Private Sessions Include/Cover:
-1-on-1 lesson including a warm-up, body conditioning, stretching, & cool down
-Recordings of Movement Material
-Music Playlist Listing

I am a native American English Speaker with over 10 years of teaching experience. I have worked with students of all ages and populations and I pride myself in being a patient and warm teacher. I create a positive class atmosphere that maintains an engaging learning environment. There is never a dull moment in my classes! My specific classes and lesson plans are catered to specific age groups from Pre-K to adults. They consist of engaging language activities, and engaging language subjects. I seriously take into account the needs and skill level of each student in preparing my lesson plans and material.
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.
Make your upcoming birthday, wedding or bachelorette party exciting with a fun dance class or movement choreography! Styles include hip hop, Social dance for parties, ballet, jazz, stepping, contemporary, and more! Learn simple movements that get your connecting with others and ready to hit the stage for your friends or family.

Daniela
Salsa Class with Prof and Colombian Coach learn and practice!
I am Daniela, Colombian, psychologist, coach and dance teacher for 9 years. I have experience giving private and group lessons of salsa, hip hop, jazz, classical dance and I also do choreography for weddings. 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 do the lessons alone or in pairs. The course begins with a warm up of the body to activate the muscles, brain and salsa mode (or the style you want to dance). 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 also strengthen self-confidence, communication with the partner and the ability to improvise, because finally salsa is that ... It is a dynamic course, which will allow you to work the coordination, your memory, the rhythm, to know better your body, to gain confidence in oneself and to pass a good time. I can give classes in French, English or Spanish.

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.

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.

Elie
I m teaching japanese language, tutoring, breakdance, piano
Japanese : Being specialized in comprehension and oral expression, my courses are for beginners and intermediate levels (JLPT level N5 to N3). I prefer the active method and give my classes entirely in Japanese, while adapting myself of course to the level of the students. The lessons will generally start with a warm-up before a lesson phase associated with practice, and then a written and / or oral exercise to consolidate learning. Dance : I propose to start each class with a music warm-up session, and then take what was seen in the previous class to understand the basics. The rest of the course will generally consist of games and choreographies to learn how to use the movements and figures learned before. During the last part of each class, I will encourage students to engage in improvisation and dance battles that characterize hip-hop dance. The courses will obviously end with compulsory stretching! :) I am a demanding teacher but who is especially there to encourage his students to embark on the track to have fun and relax!
