She is pretty crazy and has no idea what she is talking about most of the time. Her dancing skills seem to be okay, but if you ask a person who really dances, she does many things incorrectly. Very unhelpful and random. She says the most random and weirdest things.

a bit senile. can't understand anything we say, can't hear us unless we yell, and frequently answers different questions than that which we asked. should probably retire. also choreography is not great.

She is a semi- good teacher. She is sort of nuts and jumps around a lot during yoga but I guess it's okay. She could be a lot more clear about what she wants us to do. But other than that she is a really easy grader, like you can get straight A's in her class.

Crazy lady. Enough said. I like her, but all her choreography seems similar. She never diciplines the class, and progressions is steadily approaching. A lot of people never come to class and will probably get A's like they did the rest of the year. She lets you grade yourself. (We actually wrote down our grades) A VERY easy A.

WAY too much talking for a dance class, little discipline so disruptive kids were disruptive, not really tuned in to the students" level of interest in what she is saying. Never again!

I HATE HER! SHE'S SO UNREASONABLE!!!! Her style as a teacher SUCKS! She was out for 3 weeks, and then expects to be in control again. The other day, she is like, "I have to work on my dance now, so stop doing yours", since we are working on our Progressions piece. All of us were like IT'S NOT OUR FAULT YOU WERE OUT FOR 3 WEEKS! I used to understand her and feel bad for her, yet I now see why people are behaving the way they are. She can't teach an advanced-level class.

before I had her I heard that she was insane, and I believed that she was insane and regretted being in her class. after 2 classes I LOVED her class. she's so amazingly different, but the dance class is fun. (intermediate) I'm so happy that she's my teacher. sometimes she goes off on a random tangent, but the class is always fun.

Ms.Chapin is really cool and funny, but she is not very organized. She is full of good ideas but she needs to add more structure to her class.
