Tom's approach to teaching is one centered around structure, consistency and artistry. With a vast array of knowledge ranging from the purely classical to the cutting edge of contemporary dance, Tom is able to customize lessons to the needs of the student. His classes and private lessons demand full attention and maximum effort. He believes firmly that a structured approach with a calm mind produces the finest results. This will yield new consistency from the student and fuel the desire to progress further. He also focuses on injury prevention. Proper stretching and body maintenance are taught in coordination with technique and execution. The work may be rigorous but the tone with the student is warm. The love of dance should never be lost in the rigors of training. Tom believes that passion for the art form should only increase over time and this passion should be projected proudly by the student.
