Walter Cedano - Hip Hop

I am a lover of dance and music and love to share that passion and joy with others. I LOVE teaching and feel like I was born to do it. In my classes, I encourage a positive vibe and make sure everyone learns and grows in some way before they leave. Additionally, I teach the history and background of the moves we are learning. I have taken many classes with many different styles of dance instructors (both formally and informally), have been in several dance groups and performed solos and group performances for many years, have dance battled many times (and still do) and I even auditioned for 'So You Think You Can Dance' twice(!). Plus, being a BIG fan of Dance, expect me to throw in moves from other styles as well in my classes; as a dance instructor, I never stop learning! (Image courtesy ccwolfe photography).

Nancy Farren - Yoga, Children's Art

I’ve always loved working with children and have been teaching kids art classes since 2011. In 2012, I became a certified Registered Yoga Teacher and my two passions came together in the combined form of Kids Art & Yoga! I feel that this combination of art and yoga allows children to express themselves in a fun and creative environment!

Michael Galganski - Guitar

Michael has a B.A. in Composition with Guitar from SUNY Fredonia, M.A. and D.M.A. (A.B.D.) in Composition from CUNY Queens and Temple University. Teaching experience includes Penn State Abington, Chestnut Hill Music Academy, RDC Music and Camp Saint Vincent. Specializing in Acoustic, Rock and Jazz styles with particular interest in Emblematic notation, Tonal mechanics and Autochthonic theory, Michael has been teaching for many years. He subsequently tailors his approach to the personal needs and interests of each student, from beginners to players of all ages.

Veronica Nash - Social Dancing

Veronica Nash is a local ballroom, swing and Latin dancer. She has been dancing in the Montgomery County area for 13 years and is passionate about introducing young and old, singles or couples, to the many health, social and mental benefits of social dancing.

Alicia Qureshi - Fashion Design, Art

With a Bachelor’s Degree in Fine Arts from the University of Arts, I am a visual artist who resides just outside of Philadelphia. In my art, my main focus is on acrylic painting, however I have extensive background in Fiber Arts. The main inspiration for my work is “nature;” the intangible traits of things and “nature” as in the world around us. I love observing natural connections and how people/things communicate and relate to one another. My main mission in working with Community Arts Norristown is to help the local youth realize their own talents and open their eyes to the world of opportunities around them, when it comes to creating. I also hope my work with the students will be an outlet for them to escape their hardships and create unique pieces that they can relate to and be proud of. When not working on my own art practice, I’m either cooking, gardening or spending time with family.
