DIRECT FROM THE STUDENTS
“The dance that Michael taught us was so much fun! He really showed us how to find a story for your character with every move of the dance, and it helped me with my acting while dancing techniques.”
“Michael was so amazing to work with. He explained everything so thoroughly and really made sure everyone had the choreography. I had a great time working with him. His personality and energy resonated with not only mine, but with everyone that was also taking the class with him.”
“I really liked that he taught us not only the choreography but also about having a storyline or a monologue of your character through each part of the dance, and he really brought his own insight about what dance auditions are like and tips about acting while dancing and not just ‘doing the moves’.”
