I have been teaching dance for over 10 years. In that time I have found that, regardless of what style you are learning, everything is made of a few fundamental principals and components specific to that style. There are only so many ways you can move your feet and body. By understanding these principals & components, you can then put them together in any order with different style to create different dances. By laying the proper foundation, students have an easier time following choreography, learning to apply their own style, and even keeping up with a class. Once a dancer has a foundation to work up on, I introduce new concepts in layers to help dances feel better and develop a nicer aesthetic.

Whether a beginner or experienced dancer, my lessons will add more to a student’s dancing. I focus on technical as well as artistic qualities and modify each class according to the student’s needs. With years of professional ballet dancing experience as well as learning from Russian, Cuban, Chinese, and American training styles, I can say that I am full of knowledge. I teach ballet technique, posture, stretching and strengthening, pointe, as well as modern/contemporary. I will contact the student before the lessons to discuss the class plan and goals you would like to achieve so it is important to keep an eye out for an email or phone call from me once a lesson is booked. I look forward to working with you!

Beginning Ballet is great fundamental disciplines for any new dancer. I help explain very complicated steps and movement with easy to understand demonstrations, music theory, and counting. I also focus on barre, pantomime, dance health, flexibility, stretching, toning, and conditioning. Perfect course for musical theatre artists.

I have been teaching dance for over 12 years. My students have won many competitions and some of them even passed tough exams to enter Dance Academy programs, colleges and universities. I am very passionate about teaching dance and finding the right "key" to every student. I believe that all of us are different in the way we process new information, the way we learn, memorize, get motivated, and progress. I believe in order to get maximum result in such complex craft as dance there has to be a balance between having fun and having discipline. Each class has a set structure, short-term goals, and long-term goals, and of course, we do have fun. I love my profession, I love teaching and figuring out how to achieve the greatest result with that particular student by applying aspects of sports psychology on top of standard methods, and I love seeing my students fall in love with the craft and achieve great results.

I graduated from Moscow State College of Arts in 2008 as a choreographer. In the United States, I studied different dance styles (hip-hop, house, tap, vogue, jazz-funk

I have been training with Margo for 6 months now and the progress is amazing. I wanted to learn how to break dance but didn't expect much... I can already do hand stands, head stands, whole bunch of freezes, tornadoes (slow but still!), backspin, coffee grinder, footwork, kip up. I am super close to power moves at this point - I can feel I can get a windmill and a swipe this month. To say I'm excited is an understatement! It is so exciting to realize that you are capable of so much more than you think! She teaches me to believe in myself and be persistent. I love it!
Kate
I didn't expect that I'll start to dance hip hop so quick. I've been dancing ballet since I was 3, now I'm 14. I never had any hip hop training. Transition to hip hop was very challenging in the beginning but within a month of training with Margo I started dancing hip hop very well, better than most of my friends who've done it for a long time! Thank you Margo!!!
Penny
Margo is a wonderful teacher! She corrected my technique in no time, helped me figure out why I just couldn't do certain things (pirouettes). I love working with her, learning from her, she is very patient with me and always finds the right words to motivate me. I am very pleased

Jessica comes to her classes prepared and with a plan! She has an incredible work ethic and she instills that discipline in her students. Her combinations are clear (she gives counts!), musical, and challenging - but in a fun way! She always encourages her students to reach past what they think they might be capable of - (“you can do it!”) - all while cheering them on and celebrating each and every personal victory. Jessica wants her students to succeed. Jessica has a great sense of humor and an infectious laugh! You will have fun dancing with her! If you are looking for an outstanding dance teacher - you should definitely train with Jessica!"

"I love taking my online classes with Lindsay! Having a really busy schedule, I thought at first this was an indulgence to have a class in the comfort of my own home, however I've rethought that since I've started. These are necessary to keeping, not just my physique in shape, but my ballet up to par, as well as my mental state of being calm, focused & happy. Lindsay is very skilled at shifting each class to what is best for me that day. She's skilled & knowledgeable, proficient, professional, friendly, fun & gives me a thorough workout!
