Introduction: My service stands out because I love what I do and I love helping people! I am very passionate about dance, yoga and teaching. I am offering 2 gentle Yoga classes a week on Wednesdays and Sundays at 10:00am-11:15 am PST on Zoom and Private sessions for Ballet and yoga in person. I really care about people and want to help make a difference in their life. I take a lot of time and care to see what my clients and students need, and because I have such a diverse background of movement studies, I can really give them more than just a yoga session, or more than just a dance class. My unique approach to teaching combines a high standard of experience and technique along with a holistic view point which embraces the whole person. When I teach dance I love to see people become more confident and happy with themselves as they become more skilled in their dance training as well as seeing them have fun and experience more joy as they become a better dancer. When I teach yoga, I enjoy helping people feel better physically and emotionally. As they become more flexible and less stressed and I see the changes in their body, it makes me happy to see the impact it has having on them. I see them relieved of pain and symptoms and have a better quality of life.

Mindy is a wonderful teacher! I have recently started taking private ballet lessons from her, and I have already gained so much valuable knowledge. The lessons are tailored to my personal experience and skill set. I am never overwhelmed with things beyond my reach, yet I still feel challenged and compelled to succeed and excel! Additionally, Mindy fosters a warm, friendly environment of learning. I've never felt intimidated or embarrassed to learn ballet with her, despite coming in with zero experience! Amazing teacher and would highly recommend!

Details: 18-25 • One person (one-on-one with instructor) • Ballet • No experience • Developing a hobby • 60 minutes • As recommended by professional • At the pro’s location • My home, venue, etc.

My now-husband and I used Mindy to choreograph our first dance. She was really great to work with. She was very collaborative, helping us select our first song and she was very accommodating of our skills and even adjusted the dance to suit us better during our meetings. She knew I was really nervous and was really sweet and encouraging. The dance she choreographed for us was really great. It allowed us to show personality but was not overly complicated. We had a really great time doing it and we received a ton of compliments at our wedding for how great it came out. We absolutely recommend Mindy!! If I can think of a reason to need another dance some day, I will definitely go to her!!! :-)

Details: Two (e.g., myself and my husband) • First dance • What my teacher recommends • No experience • As recommended by professional • 45 minutes • Monday • Tuesday • Wednesday • Thursday • Friday • Sunday • Evening (after 6pm) • I travel to the wedding dance instructor

I hired Mindy to help me choreograph a few dazzling but silly dances for an event and she was wonderful to work with. She was so sweet and supportive and helpful and the dances were a hit. She also helped me with getting into the right mindset before practicing and performing. She's a really sweet, nurturing and talented teacher!

We hired Mindy to help my husband and me with our first dance for our wedding. She was very dedicated in preparing our dance routine and ensuring that we were comfortable with the dance moves. We had two dance lessons. The first was very helpful in introducing the dance steps and getting used to the foot work. We recorded the dance routine with Mindy which was extremely helpful in observing how natural and elegant the dance is supposed to look like. Our second dance lesson was focused on refining the dance moves and make alterations that was best suited for our level. She had a good eye for the 2nd dance lesson to make adjustments that made sense for us. Overall, we were very pleased with hiring Mindy as a dance teacher and making our first dance a success! She also comes to your home which is a plus and makes it very convenient. She is willing to work with your schedule and is very committed in ensuring you are completely happy with her service. We highly recommend Mindy as a dance teacher!!

FAQs

  • What is your typical process for working with a new customer?

    I usually talk with them on the phone first to find out if they have any injuries and what they hope to gain from working with me. The first session is me getting to know their body and seeing where their strengths and weaknesses are. By the end of the first session I know exactly how I'm going to work with them and what I'm going to focus on.

  • What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?

    I started my ballet dance training when I was 7 years old in New York and became a professional ballet dancer at the age of 17. I danced professionally in major ballet companies for 10 years in the United States and Europe and toured internationally. After that I travelled to India, where I trained to be a Hatha Yoga instructor. When I returned to the U.S. I continued my yoga training while I was teaching, as well as continued to expand my dance teacher training. I took teacher training courses in Creative Dance for all ages with Anne Gilbert in Seattle and took many courses in the Somatics, Laban Bartenieff Movement Studies, Feldenkreis, etc. I later became a certified BeMoved instructor, which is a low impact dance fitness class for adults. I also experienced a lot of injuries as a ballet dancer so I had a lot of physical therapy. I use many things I've learned from healing my own injuries to help my clients.

  • How did you get started doing this type of work?

    I started dancing when I was 7 years old. My mother took me to a recital at a local school and the minute the dancers came out on stage I stood up from my seat and remained standing for the rest of the performance. I became a professional dancer when I was 17 and when I was about 23 I noticed that I had a good eye for correcting dancers. I also was a good communicator and it came naturally for me to give someone a correction in a positive way that made them feel excited about applying what I said. I realized I was a natural teacher. Later in my 20's I started getting interested in yoga. It made me feel more peaceful and I started to understand my body in a different way and the postures helped me with my dancing. I later decided to become a yoga instructor as well as a dance teacher.
