About the lesson

I teach how to learn, not just the repetition of movements, showing the student the way to perform the movements, and I offer the student tools to develop and create new movements. Increasing the confidence, self esteem and creativity of each student.
Dance is an incredibly beneficial practice — not only professionally, but personally as well. Learning to dance can open up a variety of career opportunities in performing arts and entertainment. Whether you dream of working as a dancer in the music or music video business, or dancing with guests as a host or hostess on a cruise liner, professional dance lessons can get you there, or just for have fun and improve your confidence. 

Dance lessons are also incredibly beneficial for other types of entertainers and performers. If you're in the acting business, in a band, or dream of making it big in musical theater, a background in dance will prove useful. Dance will make you more comfortable and coordinated in your body and help you feel comfortable, using the stage in a performance. 

Dance is also very healthy. It's a workout that focuses on three primary aspects of fitness: flexibility, strength, and endurance. This all-in-one workout is good for everyone; it's a fun way to get healthy and stay in shape.
People who dance are happier!
