    Bio




    Gwen was born and raised in Indianapolis, Indiana and for the last ten years has realized her childhood dreams of being a dancer, choreographer, and teacher here in NYC. Gwen received a BA in Dance from the University of Wisconsin-Stevens Point. During her time there, she studied extensively under Jeannie Hill.

    Gwen has had the great pleasure of performing on many different platforms within the commercial dance and live stagegenres. Gwen's performance credits include: Good Morning America, Adidas, Alice and Olivia, Harlem Globetrotters, Facebook, Thinx and many more. Gwen also had the great pleasure of studying/performing with Anthony Locascio’s Taplife company.

    Gwen’s choreographic work has graced the stage of many reputable venues in the city such as Alvin Ailey, Lincoln Center, Dixon Place, Highline Ballroom, and other dance festivals in the tri-state area.

    One of Gwen’s biggest passions is educating the future generation of dancers and inspiring them as her teachers once did for her. Currently, Gwen is newly on faculty as a tap instructor at Peridance teaching open level tap to aspiring tap dancers.Gwen’s passion for teaching grows deeper each day as she delves into an ever broadening range of dance styles. She continues to develop her voice as not only an educator, but as a performer and choreographer in the city of dreams.


    Class Descriptions:




    Gwen's Philosophy is that any level of experience is welcome, and that students should have a "come and get what you can" attitude. Each class/week is different. Some weeks are more choreography based (spanning from Musical Theater to more Rhythm tap and everything in between). Some classes/weeks are used to work solely on vocabulary, and improvisation. Gwen tries to incorporate the styles she has in her tool belt as well as incorporating the styles in which she is currently inspired.

    Monday - Beginner Tap



    This tap class will focus on technique and may or may not focus on a combo at the end. This class is very beginner - up to 2 years of tap experience.

    This class will be centered around choreography and catered to more advanced dancers. This class will require 3+ years of tap experience.

    This class is for absolute beginners. Minimal to no experience is welcome. Tap shoes are recommended but not required.
