Jazz, Pre Teen Jazz

Veteran teacher/performance coach, Cindera Che, develops confident and articulate artists in her Jazz 1 classes. She spiced up Kristy Yamaguchi’s winning performance on Dancing with the Stars and coached the models to move comfortably in their own skin on The Janice Dickinson Modeling Agency show.

Cindera began her career at the age of twelve, dancing in a weekly TV variety show in her home country Taipei, Taiwan. After moving to the United States, she worked with notable talents, such as choreographer Michael Peters, Vincent Paterson, Billy Goodson, Daniel Ezralow, Twyla Tharp and director Francis Ford Coppola. She mentored many of today’s teachers and inspired many with her performance in Michael Jackson’s “Smooth Criminal” video.

Cindera includes Horton technique, ballet barre and classic Jazz across-the-floor in her warm-up; the combinations are creative and exhilarating. Her classes will make you dance better, laugh harder, scream louder and live bolder!


Pre Teen Jazz Class offers an ideal blend of technique instruction and creative play. She uses all genres of music to engage the students and bring forth the performer in them. Class consists of a ballet barre warm up, jazz isolations and vocabularies across the floor and a combination. Students with previous dance experience are welcome.
