Thank you for your interest in Private Training with me, Rhapsody James. As we are all fully aware that these are very trying times, we wake up everyday hoping for the best mentally, spiritually, physically and of course financially. We are finding that our “normal” is slowing becoming a “new normal “. When this pandemic hit the United States I immediately began to think about what can I do to offer the dance community and dance lovers alike. As I continued to think , I realized that many of you reach out to me for tips and feedback on dance & choreography. Although I know I can continue to do IG Live Classes (and I will here and there) ,but I wanted to do something that would be more intimate and special . So for a limited time I have decided to do One On One & Group Privates through ZOOM.
I am a FIRM advocate of the statement “ You Are What You Believe” . If we constantly keep our head in the news and focused on this virus, then we will become the virus ( hypothetically speaking) But, if we keep our head in our gifts and talents while spreading love and joy, then we will become a person of positivity and hope. This is what I wish to bring to people during these online private training sessions. I hope to bring you love, joy, and encouragement while enhancing discipline in dance.
Being aware of what these times are doing to us financially, I will be offering these privates at a special “Stay At Home” price NOT my usual industry rate. I hope this will help ease your burden of trying to keep up with your training and dealing with social distancing.
Below you will find all detailed information. If for any reason you have any specific questions, please email
