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
-Copy of the Teacher Lesson Plans
-Written Log of Corrections and Improvements​​

Apprendre à danser, à lâcher prise et à prendre soin de soi
Mes cours sont dédiés à toute personne souhaitant découvrir ou progresser dans la danse et/ou l'assouplissement. Mon but est de vous faire progresser, vous faire découvrir votre potentiel, quel que soit votre niveau. Formée entre Nice, Paris, New York et Los angeles, je propose des cours de Street jazz, des cours sur talons ( axé sur la féminité), des cours d'assouplissement et des cours d'oriental. J'enseigne actuellement à l'espace temps danse ainsi qu'à la Royal Ballet School sur Bruxelles. N'hésitez pas si vous avez des questions. Possibilité de me déplacer chez l'élève.

Cours de Salsa avec Prof Colombienne apprenez et pratiquez!
Je suis Daniela, colombienne, psychologue et prof de danse depuis plus de 7 ans. J'ai de l'expérience en donnant des cours de salsa, de hip hop, jazz, danse classique et je fais aussi des chorégraphies pour les mariages. Avant je donnais des cours de salsa à Barcelone, et maintenant je suis à Bruxelles pour continuer à répandre la joie de la salsa. Normalement je fais des cours soit d’une heure, soit d’une heure et demi, et vous pouvez choisir si vous voulez faire plusieurs heures par semaine. Aussi vous pouvez choisir prendre les cours tout seul ou en couple. Le cours commence para un échauffement du corps pour activer les muscles et se mettre en mode salsa, puis, selon le niveau, des exercices pour comprendre et apprendre le rythme, les mouvements basiques ou des pas ou des tours plus complexes et on finit par une pratique libre pour renforcer aussi la capacité d’improviser, car finalement la salsa c’est ça… C’est un cours dynamique, qui entretien et qui vous permettra de travailler la coordination, le rythme et de passer un bon moment. Je peux donner les cours en français, anglais ou espagnol.

Wedding: Dances Classes, Choreographies and Performances
You're planning to get married and would like to leave a good impression during your opening dance? In that case, you're knocking at the right door. My classes will help you get comfortable with your dancing moves and create a strong connection with your partner as a leader or a follower so that you won't feel clunky and awkward anymore! I can also propose choreographies based on your musical choices and/or help you find what suits you best (Latin, Waltz, Afro, Caribbean, Pop, Rock, etc). Feel free to contact me and we'll see how I can help you enhance your dancing moves and look good!! Alternatively, you can book me to perform at your wedding (solo or couple).

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.

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
Cours de salsa + nouvelles rencontres
Hello tout le monde!!! :-) Les cours de salsa des vendredis vont enfin reprendre!!! :-) Cet événement est destiné à tous ceux qui veulent apprendre le plus rapidement et le plus efficacement possible la salsa L.A. Nous abordons l'apprentissage de la salsa selon un schéma évolutif. En d'autres termes, nous commencerons par des pas et figures de bases qui s’intégreront dans des figures de plus en plus complexes. Une participation assez régulière est donc conseillée même si les pas vus seront brièvement rappelés ultérieurement. Nous insistons sur le fait que vous devez pratiquer ce qui a été vu, sans quoi vous oublierez, rendant ainsi difficile votre évolution. C'est la raison pour laquelle nous vous invitons à rester pour la soirée dansante à partir de 23h afin de répéter directement avec vos nouveaux camarades. PROGRAMME: 20h-21h: Debutants 0 (ceux qui n'ont jamais dansé) 21h-22h: Debutants 1 et Intermediaires (ceux qui ont déja les bases) 22h-23h: Avancés (ceux qui ont déjà une certaine maîtrise) 23h: Soirée salsa pour pratiquer directement avec vos camarades et d'autres danseurs. Comment se déroulera 1h de cours? Débutants 0, 1 et Intermediaires: - pas de base et mouvements en solo: 15mn pour les Débutants 1 et Intermediaires; 25mn pour les débutants 0 - apprentissage et maitrise du rythme: 5mn - rappel de la figure précédente (et/ou questions): 10 mn (uniquement pour les débutants 1 et Intermediaires) - figure du jour et pratique sur musique: 30 mn Avancés: - échauffement, solos, shines: 20 mn - rappel de la figure précédente + questions: 10 mn - figure du jour + pratique sur musique: 30mn Afin d'offrir une qualité optimale et vous suivre individuellement , nous limitons les participants à 20 par cours.
