About this pro

Holly Noelle Dance is a new Los Angeles dance studio offering recreational dance classes from a variety of styles. Its welcoming atmosphere makes this studio an ideal starting point for young dancers looking to hone their skills, make new friends, and develop a passion for dance. Located at Evolution Studios in North Hollywood, this up-and-coming business is currently offering ballet/tap combination classes, jazz, hip-hop, and musical theatre throughout the week. 

Miss Holly grew up as a dancer in a recreational studio and loved the stress-free environment. There was never any pressure to join a competitive dance team or to look and act a certain way, which is something she has taken with her as she begins to develop her own ideals for her studio. At an affordable price, students are getting excellent dance training that focuses on enhancing students’ technique and growing as not only as a dancer, but as an individual. To top it off, the studio at which classes are held has a private parking lot and free street parking, as well as a family friendly seating area, making it the perfect place to watch classes from the observation windows or to feel safe enough to drop your kids off for the hour!

FAQs


What is your typical process for working with a new student?

Working with new students is one of my favorite things, because developing rapport is a unique experience that I have with each of my students. None of my relationships to my students are alike, because each student is different, which makes for a dynamic class.


What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?

I grew up dancing throughout my childhood, studying ballet, tap, jazz, contemporary, and musical theater. Once I got to high school age, I started studying Latin and standard ballroom, as well as hip-hop. Around this time, I also trained with the Radio City Rockettes. Post graduating high school, I studied dance at California Institute of the Arts and shortly after leaving there, I booked my first professional job in Mary Poppins at a regional theater. Since then, I have danced in choreography videos, LA Theater Festival, and most recently, in the Debbie Reynolds Tribute show.

How did you get started teaching?

I got my first teaching job when I was in high school, where I got asked to lead a Rockette-inspired dance camp. Since then, I have been teaching a variety of styles at several different studios, though most commonly ballet, tap, jazz, and musical theater. In addition to teaching dance, I have coached cheerleading for Junior High schools, as well as gymnastics at Los Angeles Valley College. Because of this, I have a lot of experience teaching all ages!


What types of students have you worked with?

I have worked with all types of students. I have taught boys and girls, as well as all different ages (18months-16 years old). The biggest challenge, I have faced though, is teaching students who do not want to be there and/or do not have a passion for dance. Sometimes I have to teach at camps where not everybody wants to be dancing, but are somewhat forced to by the program curriculum. It is challenging to get them to want to dance, but I almost always overcome these struggles and get the students to crack a smile and wiggle their arms!


What advice would you give a student looking to hire a teacher in your area of expertise?

You want a teacher who wants the best for you. A teacher who can recognize your natural talent is crucial, but more importantly than that is their ability to make something of those natural talents. You should also want a teacher who recongizes your weaknesses and wants to work on them with you. You should want to become a well-rounded dancer, performer, singer, etc., so a teacher who wants to help you achieve such a goal is a keeper. 


What questions should students think through before talking to teachers about their needs?

Students should always feel comfortable talking to their teachers about their needs, regardless of what those needs may be. Teachers are their to not only teach technique, performance quality, etc., but to also teach essential life skills that help you become a well-rounded person. For those reasons, your teacher should be willing to listen to any problem you may have. However, always be prepared for your teacher giving you the answer you weren't expecting.
