Private Ballet Teacher

I offer personalized private instruction in ballet, with each lesson tailored to your interest in technique, self-expressive style, and/or performance. I joyfully combine a well-trained eye for detail and a strong feel for the subtleties of mind-body connection with an ability to communicate them with sensitivity to individual physique, strengths, personality, and learning style. Relationship is at the foundation of instruction, creating a safe, supportive, respectful, encouraging atmosphere to grow as a dancer.

I took dance lessons from Gigi with a focus on self expression and working through issues that I was holding onto on any particular day. I am 60+ years old and never danced before. Where my typical perspective of myself standing in front of a mirror is not positive, I somehow was transformed into seeing beauty. Gigi is a beautiful person, very patient , non judging. Her goal was for me to meet my goal, even when it changed from week to week. Sometimes we worked on dance technique, other times using movement to work through feelings. I loved it.
Anna Mayta
Working with Gigi during a challenging time in my life was an amazing experience, her empathy, her nurturing quality made my experience truly lovely. She finds inspiration for movement therapeutic work by what the students needs are. After my classes with Gigi I feel spiritually rejuvenated.

Wonderful and captivating teacher of meditation.

Private Ballet Teacher

I am a professional ballet dancer and I love to help students achieve "clean" un-stylized classical technique, whether they hope to gain admittance into top ballet schools, summer programs, audition for companies or to simply get in shape. I began training at age 3 and have experience with small and large schools. For my high school years, I trained with American Ballet Theatre's JKO School, where I received ABT certification to teach Levels Pre-Ballet - 3, then did my post secondary training with Canada's National Ballet School in Toronto. Since graduating, I have danced with Les Grands Ballet Canadiens in Montreal, Copenhagen's Tivoli Ballet Theatre and Semperoper Ballett in Dresden, Germany. I would be more than happy to share tips and encourage any age student as they reach for their individual goals.

About Isabelle

Levels Taught: Beginner, Intermediate, Advanced I love sharing the beautiful classical art of ballet with young students! I like to keep class fun while gently helping students retain habits that encourage a language of clean classical technique through proper form, allowing them to work towar

Great!! Isabelle was everything I was hoping for to help my daughter work on her technique and gave kind words of support. I felt very confident having someone with professional experience.
Diana
Isabelle is a great listener and made me feel much more confident after a few classes. She knows how to make me work so the classes were worthwhile. I feel like I improved and had fun! Five stars!

Jennifer has such wonderful warmth, dance expertise and positive presence. Love her!
Kyla
Jennifer is an amazing teacher! She provides amazing feedback and clearly knows her stuff. She is energetic and helps to bring a deep understanding of movement. I highly suggest Jennifer for privates!
Robyn
I have trained alongside Jennifer as a dancer and have seen her in action in the studio not only as the student but as the teacher. Her compassion, diligence, and dedication to sharing her own love of ballet with her students is admirable and shines through. She is dedicated to not only providing safe and polished technique and artistry but also to learning from her students and seeking out ways to improve herself.

Speaking as a peer, Jennifer's teaching style is a great hybrid between a technique-driven, traditional curriculum and a wholesome appreciation for the joy and spirit that keeps dance as a universal language. Students not only gain an understanding of the vocabulary but a safe space to develop discipline, strength and confidence.

Excellent lessons with instruction from an experienced instructor. Easy to talk to and ask advice from, she provides energy and enthusiasm to each class (even when exhausted)!
Ava
Sarah is professional, personable and patient. She helps me troubleshoot any technical mishap on my end to proceed with our lesson. She is always on time for our session and beyond the voice exercises, Sarah answers my questions about the connection between our anatomy and voice. She is attentive and gives me valuable insight. I felt immediately confident about my voice after one session.
titus
I was really hopeful with seeing the videos and how she explained herself as an instructor on her profile.
sadly after the first lesson I was still a little hopeful but she showed up almost 15 minutes late to the lesson. With my daughter sitting there nervous and not knowing what's going on. this was not good. 😡
but not a big deal. So I was totally fine about that. The instructor did alright but was somewhat rude and negative and created awkward silences during this lesson. 😡 still not good but i was forgiving.
The second lesson she didnt even show up!! 😡😡😡
so she was sitting there for like 30 minutes trying to figure whats going on. not ok!!
i recommend this instructor to nobody!!!
beware of her because she seems nice but then will be rude and negative in the lesson.

I am an adult who started with Miss Kerri. I have made such great progress and i am so happy that I have her as a teacher. I always look forward to the next class with a lot.of enthusiasm. Her teaching methods are excellent and it is a pleasure to study with her. Highly recommended. I can't imagine studying with anyone else.
Nicole
Kerri is awesome! My daughter absolutely adores her and looks up to her. She puts on very professional shows that our whole community looks forward to every season. Being that we are in quarantine with the virus right now, I am really happy that my daughter can continue taking classes with her online. She is always very positive with the kids and builds them up in a really beautiful way. Thank you Kerri!
Raine
AMAZING! My daughter loves working with Kerri! We love how Kerri’s knowledge about not only ballet but the health and safety of dance! Kerri is always encouraging and really takes time to explain what why and how. Being that she still dances herself on a daily basis my daughter is always encouraged by what she can and will eventually achieve just by watching Kerri! Best ballet teacher by far!

"Ms. Noreen has got to be one of the best dance teachers around! As a result of taking her classes, I have become more knowledgeable in the field of dance, as well as a more confident person. She is a patient, kind, and understanding person, determined to help her students reach their full potential as dancers. I highly recommend taking her classes (which range from ballet, hip hop, jazz, and tap) if you're a beginner dancer, or even an experienced one wanting to hone your skills. You'll definitely progress as a dancer and perhaps make some new friends through class! :))"

"We (my grand daughter and I ) did not know what to expect. I did try to prepare by having the room and computer ready and by making notes about what G needed to review. Sara is an excellent teacher and started with a warm up that included feet. G is a full time gymnast and her Achilles had been tight and sore and this was very beneficial. Sara had G doing basic barre work, then she worked on her musicality, progressions and turns. It provided G with the correction and attention that she cannot receive in her regular ballet class and best of all we were able to stay home. It is great for my grand daughter's situation because she does not have to commute one more time in the week. Visually Sara made corrections as G was doing her movement, that is a testament to Sara's professionalism, expertise and training. It also shows that even a technology deficient grandmother can make this work."
