I am a 21 year-old and have been studying dance for more than 15 years (ballet, modern and contemporary). I have been a ballet teacher in Switzerland and Santa Barbara and I am currently teaching in the Bay Area. Usually, my ballet classes are given in a studio. They start with a warm up on the floor, which is followed by exercises at the barre, and end with exercices in the center.
Compassion and individually tailored methodology. No one size fits everyone. For each subject there are hundreds of ways of viewing it, and the best way is to consider where the student comes from. A little humor doesn't hurt either--studying should be at least a little fun.
My teaching method prepares the student for collegiate and professional level dance. I range the dancer in skills on the first day and then we build off of their current skills until they are ready for intermediate or advanced level dance.
I have found that call and response, repetition, and constructive criticism are the main components used for learning in the world of dance. However, there is a point where repetition causes more harm than good. Most exercises work with multiple songs, which can help keep students from feeling "bored" and there are also multiple exercises to practice every step.
Begin with a warm up and conditioning, teach technique and/or routine, cool down afterwards.
I teach ballet according to the Vaganova style; I instruct modern dance based off of Martha Graham’s beloved technique with some inclusion of the Beijing Modern Dance Academy’s style. My methodology is to teach dancers of all ages in an encouraging way while also being honest when providing constructive criticism.
My teaching method is fun but hardworking. Dance can have a bad reputation of the lowering self-esteem of students.
My teachings are based on your skill and ability. If I feel like you are holding yourself back I will push you to think better of your ability. Also if you are a beginner in dancing I will go at your pace. I am very patient and kind.

I offer a unique opportunity to learn ballet technique, pointe, stretch, jazz/tap, creative dance for Toddlers through Pre-Ballet. Our focus is dance as education, training, and fitness. Private classes welcome.
I love to teach my students extensive knowledge about their own body so that they know and accept what they are working with. I stress the what,why,how,when,and where of each muscle to students so they not only are aware of their body at all times, but have a greater idea of where their real limit is and push beyond that.
Hello my name is Kat Walsh and I am a dance teacher. I am working on earning my degree. I teach Ballet, Jazz, contemporary, modern and Musical theater. I love teaching students of all levels and sharing our passions about dance. One day I hope to own a dance studio and teach from there but currently since I am a broke college student I teach from my dance studio on the BYU-I campus.
I know that sometimes a dance can be challenging, but that is all apart of the fun! With beginners I will usually start out with the basics and go up from there. If I come to you on a weekly basis, I will usually start teaching a small dance and seeing how well you/your child can pick it up. I have no problem teaching beginners from the age of 2 to an adult.
I graduated from Sarah Lawrence College, received my MFA in dance degree. I teach dance and mandarine. I think the most important point of teaching is to know my student; to comprehend what information is the best suit for them. I am patient and spontaneous, I love to discover each of my students by talking and teaching them, and help them realize their potentials.

My name is Lexi Colon and I teach many styles of dance. I start with the basic positions(first, second, third, etc.) and will teach proper terminology to all dancers. Regardless of what style I am teaching, I will always teach basic ballet because I believe that is the starting ground to all dance styles. I teach mostly those at levels of beginner and intermediate.
My teaching method is based upon the individual needs of the student or students attending my class. I give lessons to students ages 3 - adult with any level of previous dance experience. My methods on instruction include all ways of learning. I always give my students verbal instruction, demonstration, and a physical copy of the steps/techniques learned the day of the lesson.
I teach a mix of Cecchetti and Vaganova method and believe that a strong basic foundation of Ballet is necessary for a student to continue improving in Ballet. Each class will be personalized and tailored to your needs, with lots of patience and care from the instructor's end. I provide a healthy, safe environment for students to explore movement passionately.
My teaching method is one in which I assess a student's ability, and then work on areas that need the most improvement. I like to work on a beginning level with ballet technique in order to make students aware of proper body position.

My teaching method is clear, my first day I observed, analyze the class. Depending on the style of dance I will always start off with a good warm up, which will incorporate some form of the that style. You do this to help them better understand the style as well as warming them up. I believe in feeling the music and expressing what you feel.

Anytime I do personal lessons, I let my students set their individual goals. "What do you want to achieve?" "What's the end goal?" Something I've found with students is that when they set their own goals, they're most likely to go after them. That's what I want my students to get out of a private session with me.

Perfect! Ms. Léna is a wonderful teacher! She gives very clear advice and is a kind person. I not only felt like I was getting quality teaching from someone who really knows her technique, but also like I was spending time with a friend I could laugh with....
