What can I expect from a private lesson?
We will have a consulting meeting with the dancer or teacher to discuss what technique you are wanting to improve on. From there, we will design a session with exercises to target those issues. The lessons will conclude with additional variations to those exercises that can be built upon in order to strengthen their areas of concern. There can always be more than one session depending on the concerns and the progress. There will also be a check in scheduled to make sure the exercises are working the dancer towards their goals and adjusted depending on the needs of the issues.

What can we expect from master classes with D2D?
We will have a consulting meeting with the studio director/ teachers about the technique strengths and challenges of the students being taught. From there, we will design a class or classes that center around those needs. We will create concepts and exercises designed to work on those areas of concern both in our class and moving forward. The exercises will be foundations, to building blocks, to new movements the studio can use to progress in whatever area they chose. We will also give combinations highlighting the technique used in the classes that will give the dancers the opportunity to put their hard work to the test.
Can I hire just one of you for a master class, private, or choreography?

The differences in the phases are subtle changes designed to progress the dancer while solidifying the foundation of the exercise. Repetition builds confidence and muscle memory. Dancers need time not just to learn an exercise or concept but understand what it does for their body.
