Private/Semi-Private Technical training:
For the Pre-Professional/Competitive/ Pre-Competitive
Sometimes a dancer needs to venture out for other opinions and methods of other professionals. This is the best tool to enhance overall success. entire lesson will be designed just for the individual dancer. Depending on each dancer I will take the first lesson to focus on where strengths and weakness are portrayed. I will collaborate on the dancer's personal goals, input, and requests. This will allow us to utilize a plan, and target specific areas. I love to involved the dancer and have an open line of communication. It is imperative that they feel comfortable with the teaching style, I feel It is so important to listen, support, and supplement their current training elsewhere (if applicable). I have extensive knowledge and experience in the growth of a dancer no matter what level.
Intermediate/ Beginner Level
The Same applies as what was said for competitive. This lesson plan would be built differently. We would focus on strict fundamentals of any style chosen.
I am proud to say I have excelled in creating unique, cutting edge, artistic, and technical solos. I thrive on tailor making each solo to fit each dancer.
I am an accomplished in duet, trio, and any size group choreography.
Workshops/ In Studio Inquires
I love nothing more than to get to work with any group of dancers. I enjoy the energy that comes from working with new & excited young artists. I have experience teaching at workshops, and being asked to hold a master classes in the metro-detroit area.
