NEW: PRIVATE LESSONS with Holly Evans!
Holly is available on select Wednesday to teach private and small group lessons at The Burgdorff – other time frames may be available as well. Holly can tailor the time to fit what your young dance student needs. She can work on the basics in order to catch a beginner up or focus on placement, alignment, remediation of technique, performance skills, stamina, flexibility for any level student. Holly is also interested in coaching movement for upcoming auditions or helping to polish singing and dancing together once a student has been cast. Coaching for positioning needed for application photos is also available and the time may be used for photo shoots of your dancer. You can select a private or your dancer could join with friends in a semi-private, up to three people as long as the students are around the same age.
This addition to our curriculum will benefit many students as all dancers can improve form one on one instruction! Holly has a truly unusual ability to both observe, understand and address what each student needs in order to progress and overcome any issues which are holding back their technical skill development. She has developed insights and exercises which allow each student to feel for themselves how correct placement affects their dancing. She presents material in an exceedingly clear and articulate manner and is warm, supportive and motivating at the same time! She has a great sense of humor and her classes are always uplifting.
Holly is on the dance faculty of PACE University and has had an exciting career in dance as an educator and performer, culminating in a ten year career with Radio City where she performed and was a Dance Captain (teaching and coaching) with the Rockettes. Holly’s wide range, however, includes a deep knowledge and understanding of ballet, contemporary, jazz and modern techniques. She has taught all of these techniques at Pace and elsewhere for many age groups. Holly has a BA degree in Dance Pedagogy and is happiest when she is in the studio teaching.
