Private Yoga sessions with Alexandra are the best investment I made this year. I am so grateful for our weekly sessions and she has also helped me to develop a daily yoga practice of my own. My anxiety has improved tremendously and I’m so grateful for her care and guidance. Highly recommend!

Private Dance Teacher

I’m available to teach private lessons for teens and adults interested in learning to do tap or ballet for the first time, or who want to improve their skills. My strengths are patience, enthusiasm, and an unusual way of approaching dance. I’m not famous or particularly interested in becoming famous, so if that’s your goal, I’m not the right teacher for you. I strongly believe everyone can dance, and should. All bodies can learn to dance and enjoy themselves. Dance should be joyful, about self-expression, and a way of learning about your body and your spirit. Finally, I believe it’s never too late to start learning something new, and your bucket list should not wait until you retire.

About Kristen

I started dance later in life -- tap at 19 and ballet at 31 -- because I was so tall and awkward as a child. It never occurred to me that people my size could be dancers. I fell in love with dance as an escape from a stressful job teaching high school history. I saw such changes in myself the more I

Alexandra
More than incredible first experience, no question I will return and invest more time with her. She is extremely warm, personable and really knows her stuff. So happy to have found her!
Miranda
Kristen is a human that makes her students feel immediately at ease. She is kind, quirky, and hilarious, but more importantly, she is patient and meets students where they are to ultimately fulfill their potential and their goals. I first started taking tap classes from Kristen a few years ago as a nervous adult (25 yo) seeking a bare bones beginner tap class. Since then, having incorporated exercises, games, and routines to awesome music, I have come leaps and bounds, built up my courage and confidence, and am proud to officially feel part of the tap community. If you’re looking for an excellent teacher, regardless of experience level, look no further!

"I came to Jordan needing help with extreme deadlines. I was auditioning for a musical theater degree with a large number of colleges and while I had a good amount of experience singing and acting, I was practically new to dance. Online, she was able to help me prepare for audition pre-screens, learn dance basics rapidly, and feel less anxiety about dance auditions. As a result, I was able to receive many MT acceptances and get into my dream school. Thank you Jordan for being patient with me and helping me learn at my own pace while moving fast enough to meet my goals. You’re the best!"

"A truly talented and amazing teacher!

We learned a wedding dance from Kelly and coming from a guy with two left feet, she did an awesome job guiding us through and teaching us cool choreography to make us look good! Kelly is extremely professional and takes her time understanding what you want to accomplish and teaches at a great pace where you learn while continuing to move forward. Each lesson progressed very nicely while we learned in her home studio. It was a very comfortable space and we nailed down exactly what we were aiming to do. We learned three types of dance: ballroom, tap, and a swing/bollywood hybrid. Kelly guided us through each and made sure we were comfortable and happy in the end. She even cut the three songs together for us! I would highly recommend Kelly as she has a warm heart, great attitude, and is a wonderful teacher!"
