I am a current principal ballet dancer with the San Diego Ballet, where I have been dancing for the past 14 years and 9 years as principal dancer. Prior to that I was a member of the Houston Ballet II. My teaching is based on my background of both the Chechetti Method and The French Method. I have the unique ability to be able to share as a professional ballet dancer what it takes to get to the highest level.

I teach all levels, and all ages. I have been teaching in schools all over Southern Calfiornia for the past 14 years, and I am the artistic director of the San Diego Ballet Summer Intensive.

My classes include:
* Barre work,
* Floor barre,
* Stretching/strengething,
* Body conditioning,
* Center work,
* Pointe work,
* Variations.

I make sure in my lessons to share everything I have learned over my 30 years of dancing both in training and professionally. I specialize in finding exactly what each dancer needs to improve. I know that everyone has different needs and I ...

Stephanie is amazing! My daughter loves her one on one ballet. I am so thankful for this opportunity to have my daughter in an online class , it has changed her little heart. When her hometown studio moved away she was devastated and about 6 months later we found this online class. It has been the best decision we’ve made. Thank you

Miss Stephanie is approachable and excels at communicating clearly. Her passion and extraordinary skills, love, and respect for her students help improve their musicality and ballet knowledge all while improving strength and technique, Miss Stephanie leads her students with constructive and positive guidance in order to take their skills to the next level. She is a dedicated and patient teacher, who encourages individual achievement for her students as they reach for their full potential. She connects with them and is a genuinely kind person who clearly delights in her students' progress. Miss Stephanie goes above and beyond to make each dancer feel wanted, loved, and encouraged.

Hello Dancers-
I have been in love with Ballet since I was a small child. I was fortunate enough to dance with NYC Ballet and study with many great Ballet Masters. Danced in many ballets- my favorite ballet is Coppelia.
However, my ballet career was cut short due to an unexpected illness-MS.
However, once a ballerina or any form of a dancer You are Always a dancer!!!

So I began teaching ballet for the past 17 years to all levels and all ages. I truly believe in the foundation of Ballet- The discipline, the body alignment and awareness is essential for everything in life.

I teach in various dance studios in the Twin Cities and gyms. I also started teaching “Barre” Class but in my own Balletic Fashion to keep up with the kids-HA!

Because this is what I always say-ask anyone-Everything Starts with Ballet and its FUN to be more flexible than all your friends!!!!!

Hope to dance with you soon-Miss Maria

I took in person classes with Maria for three years at the YMCA in Minneapolis. I was so sad when she was let go from there due to the Covid furloughs. I gained so much flexibility and strength. And she was so much fun as a teacher and played great music!

I did yoga regularly with Mayuko when she lived in Seattle and it was an incredible experience. She's one of the best teachers I've ever had, just really sweet, fun, and knowledgeable. I knew very little about yoga, and I'm hardly fit or flexible, but I was able to learn so much from her!

My name is Joy and I have been dancing for over 25 years. My soul needs to dance and to be able teach my love for dance. Ballet is my forte, though I've tried just about everything out there. My teaching is very technically precise, however I have a laidback flavor unusual for the ballet world. I currently teach in-person ballet lessons to young girls near where I live, but I would love the opportunity to teach you or your child the art of ballet.

If you are looking to get back into ballet I would highly recommend Jessica. She is truly outstanding and skilled in knowing how to safely strengthen and build back ballet skills. She is patient, listens and works with each individual students needs. I can't say enough about how she is transforming me into a dancer and I am not a young person. If you want to dance, Jessica will not disappoint, she will raise the bar and push you to new heights. I study 3 to 4 days per week and I highly recommend this dance instructor. Zoom works great!

I have been teaching dance for over 12 years. My students have won many competitions and some of them even passed tough exams to enter Dance Academy programs, colleges and universities. I am very passionate about teaching dance and finding the right "key" to every student. I believe that all of us are different in the way we process new information, the way we learn, memorize, get motivated, and progress. I believe in order to get maximum result in such complex craft as dance there has to be a balance between having fun and having discipline. Each class has a set structure, short-term goals, and long-term goals, and of course, we do have fun. I love my profession, I love teaching and figuring out how to achieve the greatest result with that particular student by applying aspects of sports psychology on top of standard methods, and I love seeing my students fall in love with the craft and achieve great results.

I didn't expect that I'll start to dance hip hop so quick. I've been dancing ballet since I was 3, now I'm 14. I never had any hip hop training. Transition to hip hop was very challenging in the beginning but within a month of training with Margo I started dancing hip hop very well, better than most of my friends who've done it for a long time! Thank you Margo!!!
Penny
Margo is a wonderful teacher! She corrected my technique in no time, helped me figure out why I just couldn't do certain things (pirouettes). I love working with her, learning from her, she is very patient with me and always finds the right words to motivate me. I am very pleased

"Jessica is a class act! She has had excellent training in ballet, tap, and theatre dance. She has a true passion for passing her vast knowledge on to the next generation. Jessica comes to her classes prepared and with a plan! She has an incredible work ethic and she instills that discipline in her students. Her combinations are clear (she gives counts!), musical, and challenging - but in a fun way! She always encourages her students to reach past what they think they might be capable of - (“you can do it!”) - all while cheering them on and celebrating each and every personal victory. Jessica wants her students to succeed. Jessica has a great sense of humor and an infectious laugh! You will have fun dancing with her! If you are looking for an outstanding dance teacher - you should definitely train with Jessica!"

"I love taking my online classes with Lindsay! Having a really busy schedule, I thought at first this was an indulgence to have a class in the comfort of my own home, however I've rethought that since I've started. These are necessary to keeping, not just my physique in shape, but my ballet up to par, as well as my mental state of being calm, focused & happy. Lindsay is very skilled at shifting each class to what is best for me that day. She's skilled & knowledgeable, proficient, professional, friendly, fun & gives me a thorough workout!
