My name is Gil McNaughton, and I offer classes in tap, jazz, and ballet, as well as Dance History to students of all ages and levels. Teaching styles include: Ballet - classical, Jazz - modern/Broadway, Tap - classical tap from the 1930s -'70s (emphasizing the use of arms). Having worked for over 15 years as a professional dancer I consider myself a consummate teacher, but with the ability and patience to instruct less advanced students of all ages.
I have been a dance instructor since the mid 1970s, and a director since the early 1980s. The number of students I have taught are in the thousands. Many have gone on to professional performing and teaching careers on Broadway, ballet companies, colleges and dance conservatories.
BFA in dance from Sam Houston State. MA in Dance,Music, and History from West Texas (concealed information) Daily technique classes in tap, ballet, and jazz with study in Dance History, Choreography, and Research.
Studied privately from top instructors in NY, LA, and Dallas for over 20 years. I have been a member of SAG, AFTRA, AGMA, AGVA, and AEA since 1970. I have performed with the Dallas Ballet, and done musicals with such stars as Gene Kelly, Ginger Rogers, John Davidson, Van Johnson, and Ricardo Montelban to name a few. I have choreographed musicals for numerous colleges and directed several regional dance companies.
