It’s been a joy to work with Elmboogie for over the past year, from learning so much about dance to the backend of maintaining the studio. He’s taught me how to be responsible, willing, and selfless. Elm genuinely cares for everyone, wanting to push people past their limits. I truly wouldn’t be where I am & who I am today if it wasn’t for him.

I dont have any experience with dancing, so I was very nervous going into this but Elm was very patient and helpful which allowed me to be comfortable and slowly grow. This is still very new to me but i know having Elm has my teacher, I’ll be able to grow further and achieve my desired ambition. Thanks Elm

The job was to make people feel comfortable taking a dance class (in this case hip hop) and learn how to overcome your fears or just learn begin learning the basics. Everything went perfect! The environment was a good one and the pace catered to everyone needs! Definitely recommend him as a teacher!

Elm is one if the best dancers I've ever seen. He's really great at breaking down steps and especially helping beginners understand moves and fundamentals. He's also a very nice guy and very encouraging. Most importantly, he really listens to your questions and concerns and values your opinion. If you want to learn hip hop dancing then you can't go wrong with Elm!

  • What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?

    Yes. It's very simple. I charge $100 an hour. Definitely worth it for a dedicated, focused lesson. I teach more than just steps, but rather an approach to dance that you can build and progress from! I deliver results! This cost also includes the space we need to dance comfortably. I own my own dance studio and have access to a private studio in Downtown Long Beach.

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

    I get to know you as a person, ask you what your goals and intentions are, and build a custom program and regimen especially for you! You get exactly what you want!

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

    I have been choreographing since age 14. I have street experience, studio experience and professional experience. I have trained with the top choreographers in Los Angeles and have mentored dancers who work with with major music artists like Beyoncé, gaga and usher. I have worked very closely with most everyone you can think of! Ask me.
