Elizabeth S. New York, NY

I teach beginner to pre-professional ballet with an emphasis on musicality and freedom of movement through space. Most of my class will be structured, practicing the principals and details of ballet. I emphasize freedom of movement and love for dance. Very willing and able to tailor class to the individual student's needs.

Eliza is a wonderful, knowledgeable, and patient ballet teacher. She has taught company class for my professional ballet company, and was well received by the other dancers. Her classes are technical and she adapts to the level of dancers in the studio. I would highly recommend Eliza for a ballet teacher in a private or group setting.

I have trained ballet at different studios and with different teaches for the past few years, until I finally met Elizabeth. She is an amazing dancer, with plenty of knowledge and experience.

I truly enjoy her classes, which are very demanding, fun and helpful. Elizabeth is an incredible hands-on teacher, who breaks down techniques and movements in a very granular and understandable way.

Elizabeth helped me discover things about my body and ballet techniques in a way that no other teacher has done in the past.

After only a few classes with her, I was able to finally understand and perform techniques that had always appeared difficult to me, such as executing double pirouettes. Now I can finally do it and I’m thrilled about it!

I cannot express all my gratitude to Elizabeth. I highly recommend her classes if you are really interested in mastering the fundamentals of ballet.

I am so glad that I found Elizabeth as an instructor. She is very knowledgeable, has great technique, and is extremely fun to work with.

As an adult beginner, I found some of the ballet classes in the city very intimidating. I decided to sign up and take ballet lessons with Elizabeth and she has really helped me to improve form, flexibility, and working knowledge of the different ballet terms.

Here are some of the traits in her instruction which I really find helpful:

Patience - Elizabeth is extremely patient and will spend the time to make sure you understand concepts and technique. It's so refreshing to see how positive she is and it makes me only want to work even harder. Also, she is always making sure you are doing things to prevent injury.

Knowledge / Technique - Elizabeth is a great dancer. She is very knowledgeable of the French terms used in ballet as well as very technical in terms of form. She gives positive corrections and will usually help guide you through the different combinations. In addition, she will ask to make sure you are comfortable before moving onto something new. This goes back to her patience and her goal of really making sure you understand everything.

FUN! - Elizabeth is so fun! Time flies by so fast in this class. I almost can't get enough! It's also great because she dances with you and works with you through some of the combinations. Again, she's super positive so I'm really comfortable working with her and asking for clarification.

Fitness - It's really important that people practice what they preach and Elizabeth is no exception. She's very fit as a dancer and you can tell this is what she has been doing for a long time. It's also really great motivation to see how strong she is!

Comfort - I think something that is often overlooked in terms of instruction is actually how comfortable you feel in the class and with the instructor. Her private lessons are really tailored to you and she will work with you through whatever goals you would like.

Overall five stars! Since taking private lessons with her, I really can't think of a better person to work with since she is extremely fun, helpful, and knowledgeable. I highly recommend her to someone who really wants to learn ballet or someone who is already a dancer but wants to improve their technique.

Melissa M. Orlando, FL

I have been teaching ballet since September 2014.

My goals are to ensure that my students gain balance on the barre as well as in centre, as well as learning ballet vocabulary.

I am a very hands-on teacher, I will demonstrate as well as help you align your body to the correct position. I am excellent at adjusting my teaching speed to the student needs.
