Riverdance! Lord of the Dance!...Have you ever wanted to learn how to Irish dance but couldn't find lessons near you or maybe felt intimidated to dance in front of others while you're learning?...Maybe finding the time in your busy schedule has been challenging?...I can help! : )
I have been teaching for over 25 years and I am both a certified Irish dance instructor (T.C.R.G.) and adjudicator (A.D.C.R.G.). I have created a successful online learning program that incorporates weekly online class sessions with support instructional videos and music that you can access at times that work for you! It is a self-paced online learning system that moves with you, not ahead of you, where you will find encouragement and accountability while setting goals and meeting bench marks as you journey through Irish dance, music, history and culture.
You will start with the basics of what makes Irish dance "look Irish" and you will explore the various rhythms and movements that have captivated ...

Lauren is THE BEST and I am so grateful I found such a gem of a dance teacher. I am a professional dancer in Los Angeles who had only taken a few Irish dance classes before I started working with Lauren online in April. With her help, I have learned SO much in only 4 months, and recently passed the first 6 Irish grade exams. She is so patient, encouraging, fun, and her online learning portal and videos are immensely helpful for learning virtually. I could not recommend her enough!
Elizabeth and John Le
Lauren is terrific. Our daughter absolutely enjoys her classes.

Teaching exclusively Hip Hop. Classes are a lot of fun. Has dance training in jazz and ballet.

Private classes are great if you want to grow faster as a dancer, or if it is just a simple preference. Or perhaps you need help with the steps or learn club dancing!

Private group classes are available as well. Also group classes open to anyone.

"Beyond expectations

From our first phone call, Gina became invested in my dance journey. From modern dance, to ballet and contemporary, Gina has guided me into a new world of performance and dance. Outside of our scheduled lessons, we are loosely collaborating on a creative project - something I thought was years away until I met Gina. She taught me tactical dance fundamentals while also helping me navigate the dance and theater scene in NYC. (with which she is very connected) The best thing for me was her flexibility with the learning process. She encourages everyone to make their own journey, never forcing too much structure but always being reliable. I look forward to continuing this journey. Thank you!"

"My fiance and I wanted to learn a dance for our wedding. Neither of us had dance experience and had no idea what to expect. We gave Sasha our wedding song, and she put together an awesome routine! She is extremely flexible and professional. If we didn't like certain moves she would come back the next week with new ideas. I would highly recommend her if you're in a similar situation."

"I was able to book incredible dance lessons with Ferlyn at the last minute for my friends who needed dance lessons for their wedding. Here is what they had to say:

"We had a little over a week before our wedding and needed to figure out our first dance. We went to Ferlyn for dance lessons. In 5 sessions we had our first dance down! She helped us build confidence in our dance. She is extremely professional and helpful. She allowed us to change up some moves and suggested new moves that would improve our style. We learned a lot of new techniques with great insight. Our first dance went really well and we definitely recommend her!" - Dang & Niki

I've received glowing reviews from them about that experience ever since, and they'll be cherishing that memory forever. I will continue to recommend Ferlyn for my other friends from now on! She won't let you down!"
