Her type of dance "style" isn't high school material. She can be annoying at times. The class is a waste of time though.. Take PE instead it's way better.
Freda Manzo is the sh**iest teacher ever. She gives out referrals for not putting your hair up, ( does not matter if the hair tie breaks she will give you crap) wearing socks, and she wont let you wear a jacket unless its color black even though the weather is 60 degrees. She does not respect students creativity and their artistic talent. She makes us perform some aweful choreography all the time during school assemblies, show, and competitions. She is just so selfish overall.
Obviously since it's a dance class it's an easy A, but honestly one of the worst teachers I've ever had. When it comes down to it, it's either her way or no way. Years previous, she gave students the freedom to make their own choreography. Yea that freedom is gone. Besides her class being terrible, she literally has no idea what she's doing half the time.
She picks favorites and if you're not her favorite she will accuse you of stealing and cheating she also does not teach and leaves up to her students to do all the work her class is a complete joke
She is actually really nice! Maybe sometimes a little moody but she always means well.
She's not the nicest teacher but it's an easy dance class. And you get a lot of free time to have fun with your friends.
Ms. Manzo is one of my favorite teachers. I learned a lot about dancing from her and also learned how to choreograph! She makes us do our work and has been very helpful to me personally.
I think she sorta lives in her own little world. definitely unfair, and more than a little confusing, but well-meaning.
Ms. Manzo actually makes us learn something about dance and choreography and lets the girls be creative in a lot of dance styles. Those who don't like her are mad because she makes you work and not
She is a great teacher, and I would suggest this class to anyone.
can't dance. doesn't know what she's doing. puts a lame show on every year because she won't take her dancers artistic ideas into consideration. overall though...easy A. she's also nice but weird.
horrid teacher. she doesnt care and lets her T.A run everything!
mrs. manzo tries, but she could do better. more actual dancing would be nice...
She is soooo easy. All you do is stretch in that class. Just do what she tells you to do, and you'll pass without a sweat.
beginning dance....EASIEST CLASS ON EARTH. i swear these ppl who said that she sucks are stupid. all u gotta do is TRY in her class, and improve on ur dance techniques and you will have the best time.
i wouldnt call it dance!! you stretch of most of the per. you never do any fun dances!! and all the ppl that are saying shes great, theyre her adv students and they get to do w/e they want. o ya and you have to write essays!!
She insists on xlnce and wants you to work, show up. The shows are great.
She chooses favorites and loves advanced dance. She doesn't really teach anything, her T.A's do,and she gives more paper work and tests than she does teach anything useful.
It was fun last year then she got so mean this year.. way strict and its just not as fun as last year was
Ms. Manzo makes you think like a profesional dancer. She teaches all types of dancing and is not afraid to include many diverse types of ethnic dancing.
Unless you have talent just running through you, she could care less. Spent most time testing you on paper than looking at your dancing.
She motivates with her enthusiasm, encourages with her smile, and gets that dancing spirit out of you, when even you had doubted yourself.
she sits there and lookingat the floor the entire time
Ms. Manzo teaches like a professional and it helped me in university dance after I graduated.
