Have a blast doing ballet: Lessons with a 20+ year experienced dancer
Ballet is one style I would recommend to every single athlete. Ballet teaches body awareness and control. It elongates the body, builds flexibility and stamina. I love basic/beginner level ballet because it consciously helps you focus on every muscle and part body. With ballet technique under your belt other forms of dance can be picked up easier and athletes will have better grace and quicker transitions on the playing field.
About Dwan M.

Hiii... I'm Dwan and I'm so excited to meet with you and have a blast learning with each other. I've been teaching since 2000 and I love the growth I've seen in my clients; gained skills in multiple dance styles, them grasping the understanding of musicality & coordination, and their comfortability in stage presence & overall built of confidence. My journey began in 6 grade at my college prep magnet school Charleston County School of The Arts; I attended this school through 12th grade. Thereafter I accepted a scholarship to Columbia College. These two schools gave me the foundation of dance history, Tech (lighting & sound), staging, instructing skills, and being versatile in a variety of dance styles. Along with professional experience in music videos, tv shows, movies, productions, and tours; I have insight on how to market yourself in the entertainment industry. I've been described as, high energy and a big bubble of fun, and my teaching style is full of dedication, patience, and positive reinforcement. I look forward to helping you reach your goals!!! Let's Dance!!!! ***ANNOUNCEMENT*** I now offer Group Dance Parties & Partner Lessons; contact me via Takelessons messenger for rates... Prices vary based on the size of the group.

Dwan is an amazing instructor. She’s knowledgeable, positive and kind! So happy we’ve found her for our little one.

WOW!! Dwan was incredible with my 5 1/2 year old girl!! She had her dancing the entire class, was super positive and encouraging, and let my daughter make a lot of choices throughout the class. I was very impressed and pleased and can't wait until her next class!!

We absolutely Loved D ! She helped tremendously with getting the wiggles out of my pre-teen during the pandemic! My 11 year old was ecstatic after her dance lessons .

On and off tour for 3+ years... I learned the fundamentals of being a touring artist.... The uncomfortably of traveling all the time, lack of sleep, and multiple personalities.... I also reaped the benefits of gaining multi-tasking skills, adjusting to spontaneity quickly, and organization. Pulling dancers/promo models together and teaching stage presence in hours' time before show time....was the biggest challenge that I faced every city; until I got the swing of things.
