Get inspired by world-class teaching talent

Our team at Connect2Classes is constantly awestruck by the incredible talent of our class providers. From glass artists, filmmakers, and master soap and candle makers to world-renowned dancers and international chefs, the experience of learning from these masters is inspiring and motivating.

In this series, we’re going to be profiling some of our amazing experts. Here are just a few of the talented providers who are currently offering classes and workshops in Seattle.

Geeta Naidu has been performing since the age of five and has been teaching dance for over ten years. She’s been trained in both South and North Indian classical dance styles, but her first love is Bollywood! To her, Bollywood is not a style, but a culture. It’s a combination of the classical, folk and tribal dance styles of India and the Western styles of jazz, ballet, hip-hop, and modern. Geeta believes that Bollywood is about spirit and emotion, and each emotion should be expressed not only by your body, but with your eyes and facial expressions. Register here to learn from this Bollywood master.

Char Sundust is a spiritual advisor, teacher, healer, and inspirational speaker who founded the Sundust Oracle Institute. She provides ceremonies for convocations, graduations, and the celebrations and life passages that all human beings experience. She is also the resident spiritual advisor and mentor at Bastyr University and works with IT communities, corporations, businesses, and universities to create an environment of mutuality and humanity where everyone wins. Char is offering an intensive leadership and mentorship series coming up in October. Register here for this enlightening and spiritually rewarding program.

Paul Weber, one of Hollywood’s most respected casting directors, has developed a dynamic, practical, and highly effective intensive program that demystifies the audition process and gives actors the skill and confidence needed to create a memorable audition experience. His audition workshop offers actors of every level the winning tools that will help them achieve success in the audition room. Register here for this intensive audition workshop.
