Our students have done film work as well as gained several Broadway callbacks.

Ms. Lisa was one of my Dance teachers for most of my teenage years. Haven't started back with her in my 20s has been great. If you are ready to push yourself as a better dancer she is the best teacher for you
My daughter was extremely depressed because she had not danced in a long time. I heard about HilliArts through word of mouth and I have to say I have not regretted one lesson! What an amazing turn-around my daughter has done. I can't wait to see how much more she progresses. Private lessons are all worth it!
I've had Ms. Lisa for over 10 years and each year I have grown not only as a dancer but as a person. She teaches in a way that makes you push yourself past your limit. In her private lessons, Ms. Lisa works on your specific problem areas so that you can continue to grow as a dancer. She teaches with tough love, but always maintains a family environment.
I will always discuss where the student has trained (while warming him\her up) and look to continue their lessons from the point closest to his\her demonstrated level (ie- beg, adv beg, int - etc...).
I studied dance in 2 dance studios- Bernice Johnson Cultural Arts Center and Gloria Jackson Dance Studio.
I have taught dance in 3 major dance studios in Queens, NY before brancing out on my own.
My teaching and choreography won the 2008 International Dance Challenge (IDC Dance Competition) along with Best Choreography and Best Emotional Execution.
I begain teaching 25 years ago as my dance teacher began my steps at a young age.
I have worked with students who have had no dance training, minimal to intermediate dance training and have improved their abilities. I have also worked with athletes who needed dance for agility and successfully transformed them to be performance ready as well.
I am very fond of the callbacks my students have recently recieved for The Lion King AND STOMP - both on Broadway.
Make sure you do not get too attached to accolades as I have seen many amazing teachers come out of small dance studio training.
