We are just starting. My granddaughter has some catching up to do because she is starting at 8 years, and she enjoyed her first lesson with Fergie very much. Fergie seemed to know just how much to teach her to make her best start.

I've taken tap dancing for over 20 years, and performed in many tap musicals! I can show you basic steps well into the more advanced rhythm tapping, as well as poise and confidence as a tapper.

Interested in dance lessons? Carolyn began working professionally at 8 years old and has since appeared on stage, in national commercials, recorded voiceovers, and booked principal roles in both film and television. She earned her Bachelor of Fine Arts in 2011 from the Boston Conservatory, where she majored in musical theater with an emphasis in directing. With years of extensive dance training, she's had the opportunity to perform the original Broadway choreography in several major productions she has been a part of, her favorite being the tap spectacular "42nd Street." As an award winning choreographer, her pieces have been recognized nationally at dance competitions across the country.

Very grateful for all the things I learned with Carolyn! I couldn't have asked for a better chance to learn voice-acting. Would recommend for those wanting to break into the voice-over business!

It's truly a pleasure to work with Victorius! Between his wonderful down to earth vibe and the sincere passion he his for his craft you can't go wrong. He's professional, versatile and talented. His name is a reflection of his character. If you have the opportunity to train with Victorious you'll have the pleasure of learning from someone who genuinely cares about your progress and wont let you down.

Tap is a super fun form of dance and can be great exercise! It is one of my favorite things to teach because even a beginning tapper can really get moving/dancing right away, even with the beginning steps. Making rhythms and patterns with your feet is all sorts of fun, and offers infinite possibilities for choreography and growth.
