Zumba is back at Dancer's Turnout Academy!

  • Zumba classes at gyms require a membership fee, plus sometimes they're too packed or you have to get there an hour early just to wait in line and get a good spot!  
  • Come on down to the studio, starting Wednesday Feb. 10th, we will have a special class 7:00-8:15pm.  
  • Then if we have enough interest, we will continue having classes on Wednesdays 7-8pm.  
  • I would even considering teaching a class on fridays 5:30-6:30pm if we have enough people sign up!

Canceled class

Adult Ballet class is canceled for today: 1/19/16 due to illness. But I'll be back next week! See you there!

Tuesday, January 5, 2016

I teach an Adult ballet class on Tuesday's at 7:00pm.  This class is composed of a range of abilities and experience.  Some adults have taken ballet before, and just want to get back into it (on a casual level, of course).  Other adults in the class have no previous experience.  In general, the level of the class is a beginning level.  All combinations are taught slowly and the exercises are modified for different abilities and handicaps.

If you've never tried ballet before, give it a try!  It may seem scary or intimidating but I promise you'll have a great experience.  Ballet is great for coordination, stretching, toning, agility, and meditation.

There is no dress code in Suze's Adult Ballet class.  First timers, I recommend you wear leggings or yoga pants, a t-shirt or tank top, and ankle socks.  If you're a return ballet dancer, you can be as casual as you want, or as classical ballet as you want.  The typical ballet attire is tights (any color), a leotard (any color), and ballet slippers (any color).

Call or text if interested:  661-331-7401.

Lindy Hop With Suze

Lindy Hop is a style of swing dance, also known as Jitterbug, and it incorporates east coast swing.  I have been swing dancing since 1999.  I am available for private lessons.


1 to 2 people -- $25 per hour
3 to 6 people -- $40 per hour
7 to 14 people -- $60 per hour


For 1 to 2 people, I can teach out of my home.  Contact me for details.
For more than 2 people, we would need to rent a dance studio for the time needed, this means some extra costs can be involved.  Unless the clients in the group have a space large enough for dancing, then no extra costs are necessary!

Contact me for info:
