NAGASITA’S PRIVATE STUDENT TESTIMONIALS:
“Nagasita is a brilliant teacher!!! Training with her privately is the BEST way to improve posture and technique! Private lessons are an essential supplement to her group classes for anyone looking to advance quickly from the beginner into the intermediate realm and beyond. One-on-one time with Tiare is priceless! We’re able to get down to precise details, and Tiare offers drills and choreography tailored to my body, skill level, and creative interests. She’s brings positive energy, rigor, and deep intuition into our sessions- she’s always encouraging, and continues to empower me to progress and express my individuality as a dancer… It’s a limitless road of discovery- as my skills expand, so does her teaching. Tiare’s commitment to dance, as a performer and teacher, is crystal clear!” ~ Maurie Travers Polak 2011
“The past several months of weekly one-on-one sessions with Tiare have helped catapult me from complete novice to being able to attend intermediate classes and begin public performance. The private sessions have been invaluable, since we can quickly identify trouble spots and drill exactly what’s needed for my personal dance path. I’ve also benefited from Nagasita’s masterful choreography, which she created considering my current skill set while including key pieces to learn and improve. Big thumbs up and solid recommendation for Nagasita’s private dance instruction!” ~ Amy Ryan 2011
“In the few months I have been taking private lessons with Nagasita I have seen my skill level and technique improve far beyond what I thought I could and I now feel more confident in all aspects of my dance. I have done focused classes on just arms, posture, hip work, layering, and the list goes on. All tailoring to my body, skill level, and pushing me to my limits. In this one-on-one time I get thorough detail on my posture and technique which has helped me discover my needs and goals for my dance and even more motivates me to keep practicing as hard as I can. Nagasita makes thing clear and breaks them down until I fully understand and then gives great feedback and notes to drill at home! It’s been an incredible experience to go to a warm and friendly environment where I can laugh and not feel intimidated, learn something new every time, break a crazy sweat, and have great positive and constructive feedback. Trust me its work every minute and every dime to have Nagasita all to yourself and the best part is you get to dance with her and watch her amazing-ness!” ~ Tabra Bay 2011
