Jeffrey Ferguson

Jeffrey Ferguson (Dance, Musical Theatre) has taught dance at the Lee Strasberg Theatre & Film Institute since September 1989. He teaches Dance Technique, Intermediate & Advanced Jazz, Tap, Musical Theatre and Stretch. Jeffrey’s classes are very emotional, mental, physical and technical.

There is always a celebration of life that encompasses every movement, therefore movement always has purpose and intention, focus and direction.
