"Miss Lisa is truly an incredible person, teacher and role model. Every student she has she welcomes with love and open arms. I feel so lucky to have her as a teacher. Miss Lisa is so creative and extremely talented at what she does. Her classes are always fun and challenging and I feel amazing after each one. Having a teacher that will not only be so incredibly kind and supportive but also hold you accountable is an amazing thing to have. Anyone would be so lucky to have a Miss Lisa in their life."

"I feel very lucky to learn from Lisa. She not only helps me grow as a dancer, but I always feel inspired and motivated after our private lessons. She helps me be the best version of me that I can. She's a big sister and dance teacher all in one!"

"Lisa sees potential in my daughter and I've already seen so much growth since starting our private lessons. She understands my daughter's way of learning and is patient, intricate, motivating and challenges her."

"Lisa helped my daughter prepare for competitions this year and we couldn't be more thankful. Not only did she help with her dancing, she made my daughter feel confident, positive and have a good intention towards her competitions. It helped so much and we can't wait to work together again in the summer!!"

"I wanted to say thank you for being so wonderful during our dance privates!  I love how you connected with my daughter and worked through areas of technique that she had been struggling with.  As a mom I also appreciate that you offer a mindset piece to your work.  So often we forget how important the mental component is to training and preparing for competition! You are such an incredible positive role model and we look forward to many more sessions with you!"
