« I definitely recommend Destiny as your dance teacher! She is kind and attentive. We had 4 one-on-one sessions and before each session, she asks me what I would like to learn and to which songs. This was quite impressive because I found I related to the lesson more because it was personalized. I was quite new to the dance styles she teaches and she was encouraging and patient the whole time! She taught me contemporary, jazz, hip hop and even on heels! »

Contemporary & Jazz Dancer with 5+ years experience in exams, offering dance classes in Auckland

Methodology

I like to implement base skills early on so that students can build up their basic set of skills so they are able to use those skills later on to understand movement, balance, purpose and feeling. This allows them to not only learn essential information but also gives them a drive and an inspiration to pursue this aspect of learning.

I base my classes on the students skill level and also aspirations. I have found successfully that this method works really well as I am able to teach the students what they need to know and what they want to know (make it more fun). I am a versatile teacher, so I will teach a different variant of a genre or a different genre each lesson to ensure I am providing the best experience, something new and a lot of fun. This not only challenges my students to try something new, but also provides them with different opportunities to find the right genre or variant for them.

I approach each topic with suggestion, easy understanding/examples/explanations/demonstrations as well as small rewards for learning something that could most likely be beneficial to the student. Rewards I commonly offer are things such as: choosing a dance game to play at the end of the lesson, having a mini dance party, choosing the song and choosing the genre.

I care most about the best progressive and fun experience for my students and my goal in life is to learn and teach my passions to help others learn about the good things in the world. Personally seeing my students grow with experience, drive and inspiration over time is the most magical thing someone can witness in life.

Experience

I am an experienced dancer with 10+ years learning and training. Half of these years have been outside and inside of high school full time. These years have allowed me to achieve high steady decent grades in different genres of dance such as: Jazz, Contemporary, Salsa, Musical Theatre, Gumboot, Reggaeton, Cumbia, Tap and Choreography.

I have been teaching Jazz, Contemporary and Hip Hop classes for 3+ years to groups of 8-12 participants aged 6-10 years old. Throughout these classes I have previously done private lessons and choreographed for shows. I have also been involved in a couple of dance competitions in large groups and also in smaller groups, choreographed pieces for competition auditions and taught high school to mid twenties students.

I definitely recommend Destiny as your dance teacher! She is kind and attentive. We had 4 one-on-one sessions and before each session, she asks me what I would like to learn and to which songs. This was quite impressive because I found I related to the lesson more because it was personalized. I was quite new to the dance styles she teaches and she was encouraging and patient the whole time! She taught me contemporary, jazz, hip hop and even on heels!
