Private Ballet Teacher

I’m available to teach private lessons for teens and adults interested in learning ballet for the first time, or who want to improve their skills. My strengths are patience, enthusiasm, and an unusual way of approaching dance. I’m not famous or particularly interested in becoming famous, so if that’s your goal, I’m not the right teacher for you. I strongly believe everyone can dance, and should. All bodies can learn to dance and enjoy themselves. Dance should be joyful, about self-expression, and a way of learning about your body and your spirit. Finally, I believe it’s never too late to start learning something new, and your bucket list should not wait until you retire.

About Kristen

I started dance later in life -- tap at 19 and ballet at 31 -- because I was so tall and awkward as a child. It never occurred to me that people my size could be dancers. I fell in love with dance as an escape from a stressful job teaching high school history. I saw such changes in myself the more I

More than incredible first experience, no question I will return and invest more time with her. She is extremely warm, personable and really knows her stuff. So happy to have found her!
Miranda
Kristen is a human that makes her students feel immediately at ease. She is kind, quirky, and hilarious, but more importantly, she is patient and meets students where they are to ultimately fulfill their potential and their goals. I first started taking tap classes from Kristen a few years ago as a nervous adult (25 yo) seeking a bare bones beginner tap class. Since then, having incorporated exercises, games, and routines to awesome music, I have come leaps and bounds, built up my courage and confidence, and am proud to officially feel part of the tap community. If you’re looking for an excellent teacher, regardless of experience level, look no further!

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.

Ellen has taught Jazz for my 11-year-old daughter, who says, "She pushed me hard and I've become a better dancer."

Ellen was wonderful to work with! She really made the attendees for our virtual conference comfortable enough to be on camera. Our attendees had a blast and the class was a wonderful way to unwind and have fun after a long day of zoom meetings. I would highly recommend working with Ellen.

When I purchased a series of lessons for my partner and me, I really didn't know what to expect, beyond the forced focus on steps and postures drilled into me as a boy in cotillion. What we experienced was an accomplished professional, who helped us understand what dancing and moving together really means. Ellen is a giving, forgiving, funny, and intuitive teacher. We opened each lesson with exercises to simply bring ourselves into our bodies. Ellen taught us about beat and provided us choreography to practice, but more she helped us to realize that dancing together and responding to each other's movements and energy allows us to enjoy and even look good on the dance floor. Ellen gave us an awareness as much as a structure. We looked forward to every lesson and will return to her as we evolve. She is a master of what she does and knows and is generous and joyous in sharing.

At the age of 20, I was accepted to Dance Theatre of Harlem in NY and danced as a professional ballerina for about 6 years. Performed many principal roles and toured all over the US and overseas.
After my dancing career, I have been teaching dancers of different ages and experiences, from pre-ballet to adults and from ...

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!

Breaking down the language of the movement so you know what you are doing when and how to carefully develop the aspects of your dancing that are weakest or most confusing. Musicality from the moment you stand in first position. Relationship to music in the form itself and toward the music you are hearing. Turns, jumps, adagio, petite allegro, alignment, balance. Barre.

Very good first lesson. It was a sound, thorough evaluation, along with a positive, encouraging exchange of ideas and detailed technique work between my child and Ms Gina. Ms Gina gets down to work quickly and kindly. Her depth of knowledge is impressive and refreshing. Amazing lady! Thank you!

Gina is a fantastic teacher. She has an eclectic taste in music which I love. She breaks down steps easily and is very encouraging. She also has many creative and expressive ideas like dancing to lines of poetry to get the body moving. Thank you Gina for the great lessons I will certainly be continuing!

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!

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.
