This was a fantastic experience. She learned about our wants and provided a course that gave us exactly that. Her approach was personal and not some cookie cutter series of lessons. I highly recommend her.

Kristen is a joy to work with, she listens to your ideas and translates them into dance-able movements! She easily adapted to our changing schedules and always give us good input when we practice. Certainly give her a change no matter your skill level if you are looking to dance your heart out!

FAQs

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

    I offer classes and also private sessions. Of course classes are more affordable than individual attention. But my rates are reasonable. Please note my location. Ipswich is less than 30 miles north of Boston. However, the traffic can be bad at certain times. Depending on how close you are to routes 95 and 1, you may need to find someone closer. Please note I am able to work remotely until the pandemic is no longer a factor. In person lessons will be in Ipswich. Children less than 5 years old should work with someone in person.

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

    We discuss details on the phone and then schedule our first session.

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

    Bachelor's degree with Honors in Piano. Master's degree in Dance Education. Certification from Massachusetts Dept of Education.
