Student Spotlight: Liz Liljenquis

Liz Liljenquist headshotI found Maria through a friend and am so glad I did!

I’ve been with her for about 6 months now, taking both classes and private instruction. I’ve always wanted to be a dancer, but because of some bad experiences from a young age I always felt I lacked what it took. Maria believes anyone can dance and creates a stress-free, uncritical environment in her classes that allow you to learn at a pace you can maintain and feel good about.

In her classes, Maria works to maintain a workshop atmosphere where you can ask for the help and clarification you need and feel great about the progress you make every time you go to class. No frantic, demoralizing attempts to keep up with dance steps!

Maria also has a way of breaking down the fundamentals of dance in a manner that is very logical and un-intimidating. You feel like you are actually learning the essential structure of dance and the internal logic of your own body. I feel like I am building a solid foundation that will serve me for the rest of my life.

Thank you Maria!
