The program has been structured with sole focus on technical proficiency, terminology, building body awareness and dance history. Learning Objectives: • Strengthen the student’s technical abilities and comprehension of terminology and vocabulary • To broaden an understanding of other artforms and its importance within training • To develop physiological comprehension and movement principles • To provide historical knowledge of dance and its derivatives • To maintain a high level of discipline and professionalism • To initiate peer collaboration and respect for other communities • To explore perspectives geared towards work ethic and one’s own responsibility as a pre-professional dance artist Mr. Ali Willingham is an artistic professional who has been consistently praised by pioneers such as Joan Myers-Brown of Philadanco, Kim Bears-Bailey of the University of the Arts, Angela Corosanite and countless others for his teaching directing, teaching and choreographic abilities.

I cannot praise the Private Dance Training of Mr. Ali enough! In the time my daughter has trained with him, her technique as well as understanding the movement of one's body through dance has significantly improved. He teaches different genres of dance and takes the time to break down each movement, how it came to exist, and what's needed to master it. In addition to his exceptional teachings, he maintains a high standard of professionalism and timeliness on top of providing an affordable service. If you are in the market for a private dance teacher he is your guy!
