    Biography:

    Ian Klein (he/him) is a New York City based dancer and choreographer. His training includes everything from Classical Ballet, Jazz, Tap, Hip-Hop, Break dancing, various styles of Ballroom, and various Modern techniques. He is honored to teach classes at the world renowned Broadway Dance Center in New York City and throughout the country in numerous styles of dance demonstrating his passion for the art of movement.

    Ian believes that the numerous styles of dance should be used like paints on a palette and dips into each of them while creating to ensure that the outcome is covered in hints of classical technique to street edginess with brush strokes of what ever style the choreography calls for.

    Ian can be seen in Movies, Hit Television Series and National Print Ads. He has also had the privilege to perform live with artists such as Wynton Marsalis, The Jazz at Lincoln Center Orchestra, Dita Von Teese, Rita Ora, Chris Brown, Conor Maynard, Sean Kingston, Ne-Yo and The Band Perry just to name a few. Ian graduated from Marymount Manhattan College where he majored in dance and received his B.F.A.

    Class Description:



    My teaching method asks students of all dance backgrounds to use their strengths to absorb new techniques and methods while blending style and performance. I aim to help students find their individual styles in movement while building on their technical foundation. Each class begins with a blended ballet/jazz-based warmup that encourages students to prepare themselves physically and mentally while working through a series of exercises. Furthermore, class combinations will push students to incorporate their personalities and mannerisms to enhance each classes movement style and story line. 


    As a dancer and teacher, I’ve found that blending numerous dance styles, like paints on a palette, enables me to present a vast range of emotion and physicality. As a result, I preach versatility and ask my students to take risks while exploring movements and styles that may be new to them. I hope they discover that technical training combined with other dance methodologies makes them better dancers and more marketable.
