Private / Semi-Private Dance Lessons

We are very fortunate to have Teacher Josh and Teacher Annie available on weekends for private or semi-private lessons. These lessons go directly through them and not PCPA. If you are interested in adding some time with either one, please reach out to them directly for information and rates. Their contact emails are listed below.

Joshua Jung

Head Teacher – Ballet Department

“I am available to work with any dancer in a Level 2 class or above in Jazz, Tap, Contemporary, or Ballet. The focus of these privates are technique and training based, not performance based. I like to emphasize a goal-oriented session, where dancers are aware of what they want to improve upon within their certain style to better encourage being mindful in their classes and their artistry.”

Josh is available for various pockets on Sunday or Saturday afternoons/evenings. To book a lesson or on-going lessons with Josh, email joshuaj@smallfrydanceclub.com

Joshua Jung

Joshua began as a hip hop dancer when he was 10, competing in dance conventions for 3 years, during which he rounded off his dance training with jazz, ballet, contemporary, and tap. Discovering his passion for ballet, he attended Bay Pointe Ballet under the tutorship of Bruce Steivel, where, in addition to ballet, was versed in character dance and partnering. When he started his first year studying Dance and Environmental Science at San Francisco State University, Joshua also started his professional dance career at the age of 17, dancing with Foley Dance, performing neoclassical-Georgian ballets around the Bay Area. Joshua also danced with the New Ballet Studio Company in Cinderella, The San Jose Nutcracker, and Fast Forward (a contemporary ballet showcase).  Additionally, Joshua has also taught dance of many different styles to many different ages; his teaching ranges from Tap to Ballet, and from toddlers to grandparents. He can’t wait to share his experiences with his students!

Annie Lester

Miss Annie (she/her) was born and raised in Baltimore, MD, where she trained in classical ballet, jazz, modern, and other styles from the age of 5. She trained in both the classical ballet conservatory (Washington Ballet, summers at Houston Ballet and American Ballet Theater) and the competition dance (placing with her team at NYCDA, NUVO, Headliners, and more) spaces until moving to Pittsburgh for her senior year of high school to attend Pittsburgh Ballet Theater’s High School Full Time Program. In 2020, she was accepted to the trainee program with Alonzo King LINES Ballet here in San Francisco, completing her first year in the pandemic via Zoom, and finally moving to the Bay in 2021 to complete her second and final year.

In 2021, her performing career ended prematurely due to a spinal injury. After a short break from dance, she took a job this January at San Francisco High School of the Arts teaching ballet, contemporary, and jazz to both the full-time middle and high schoolers, as well as the Young Artists Program.

She’s eager to shift more into the studio with us, and we expect to see her in more classes as the season continues.
