Dancers, I am grateful for you and all the love you bring to your classmates, your dancing, and me. May you be blesses as you move through the coming season.

Thank you, November 12 workshop dancers!

You crushed picking up a large volume of quick, busy choreography and dancing it with style. Each dancer, and the group as a collective, was a joy and a thrill for me to share the studio with.


Class is ON the day before Thanksgiving, Wednesday, November 22, 10:30-11:45
Before you do All The Things come to class for a charge-up and some fun with people who appreciate you deeply.

Class Descriptions:

Wednesday Advanced Beginner / Mixed Jazz 10:30-11:45 AM
$22 ($20 with card) 

Mixed-level classical jazz with a long and strong edge for adults with some dance experience in any form and some experience picking up choreography. (No hip hop here. 😉)

You know you wanna! You …

  • grew up in dance school, remember the work, it’s been a while. Come and Kick It!
  • tried all the classes at the gym … just not jazzed. Me, too.  I like to dance!
  • are a dance teacher who wants to get back to basics.
  • danced in show after show but never mastered technique. Get legs!
  • learned the “dance competition style” and want to professionalize your look!
  • are an actor or singer and want to stop faking it and move smart!
  • just want a good class.

Saturday Intermediate / Mixed Jazz 9:30-11:00 AM
$25 ($22 with card)

Come back to class after an absence, try jazz as an enhancement to your ballet or ballroom training, sophisticate your performance for the theatre stage, or just dig the alignment, strengthening, and center-floor combinations designed especially for the people in the room. I’ve got a good eye and will meet you where you’re at to help you grow!

You will get:

  • a great, meaningful warmup. We’ll develop the vocabulary for this, but it won’t necessarily be “set.”
  • guidance in developing your technique
  • center and cross-floor work to get you gliding, strutting, turning, jumping …
  • groovy (possibly swanky!) combinations in varied styles each class
  • a new connection with your body and movement
  • confidence, sophistication, and sass

Private Session by arrangement. (limited) 45 minutes $75
A personalized coaching session that allows deep investigation into how your body can move its best.

Hi. I’m Maureen Pagano. My secret sauce? – watching you move and helping you find sweet spots that unlock both freedom and stability. Originally trained in Luigi and Forella jazz techniques and styles, I still love them both. Along the way I’ve integrated influences from other “body modalities” and developed my own sensibility and feel. In my classes and shows the dancer feedback is about increased confidence and skill. “I felt I belonged at the dance audition this time.” My choreography capitalizes on resources (that’s you!) at hand and lets people dance better than they think they can. “How did you get that work out of the chorus?!” In love with my students. In love with dance. At my class you will be, too.
