Alida was fantastic! She made me feel completely comfortable and took everything step by step. She focused on strengthening my weaknesses by showing me new stretches and techniques every lesson. Alida truly is an amazing teacher. Even though I've only worked with her for five days, Alida has made my technique and main focus. It was the best and I plan (and hope) to work with her again and again!

Alida is one of the best, most caring dance teachers I've ever had. In just a few short lessons she taught me to really believe in myself, boosted my confidence and taught me technique and important combinations for important upcoming auditions. She is very patient and really catered to my needs. She doesn't ever waste any time and I always leave a lesson feeling good and really feeling like I'm getting my moneys worth. Very thankful I found her and would recommend anyone take lessons with her.

I rate her tops.

Alida is a very good teacher. Never once did she come late. She has great manners and great teaching techniques. She breaks down steps n make them easier to learn so I do not get frustrated and bored. Since I'm someone who never danced jazz before she was exactly what I needed. she quickly grasped what I could or could not do n was most patient. I rate her tops.

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.

About Elizabeth

I am a professional ballet dancer, currently performing with New York Theatre Ballet in New York City. I have been teaching ballet for over 8 years, and I have experience teaching all ages and levels.

I am an ABT Certified Teacher, and have successfully completed the ABT Teacher Training Intensive in Pre-Primary through Level 3 of the ABT National Training Curriculum.

My method is to treat each student as an individual, catering to their unique learning style, and progressing them to reach specific goals, which we define together. Formally, I was trained in the Balanchine style, but cur
rently I work in versatile methods and styles. My class is physically and aesthetically balanced. I teach absolute beginner through advanced ballet, as well pointe and variations.

I hold a BFA in Dance from NYU Tisch School of the Arts, as well as a BA in French Literature and Culture from NYU College of Arts and Science. In addition to teaching private and group ballet lessons, currently I am a dancer with New York Theatre Ballet, and Cherylyn Lavagnino Dance. In addition to performing, I am on the faculty at the Ballet School of Stamford.

This past spring, I performed with American Ballet Theatre in Alexei Ratmansky's world premiere production of The Sleeping Beauty at the Metropolitan Opera House at Lincoln Center. I also had the opportunity to dance with Armitage Gone! Dance in the world premiere of "On the Nature of Things," a contemporary ballet performed at the American Museum of Natural History. Prior to moving to New York I was an apprentice dancer with Richmond Ballet and North Carolina Dance Theatre.

Eliza is an absolutely amazing ballet teacher! I've worked with her for the past several months and have gone from the most basic of beginners (no previous dance experience at all!) to being able to leap and chasse and feel like a ballerina! She is extremely knowledgeable and patient, and has a great way of communicating techniques and concepts. Her lessons are fun and challenging, a great mix of reinforcing technique and learning new skills. The studio space is fabulous too - very comfortable and lots of room. Highly recommend her for any type of ballet lessons!

Ballet classes with Elizabeth are both fun and challenging.

The way she explains things are great. I have learned several new things about ballet and my own foundation by only a few lessons.

I highly recommend her private ballet classes.

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.

Amanda S.

New York, NY

I have been teaching Ballet in New York City for over 6 years, at various studios including the Joffrey Ballet School. When taking a private ballet lesson I will assess your technical level and help you understand what your strengths and weaknesses are. In a supportive way I will help to improve ballet technique, increase flexibility, refine rhythmic understanding to acquire clarity in your ballet training.
I will cater private lessons for beginning ballet students to professional dancers. My style is very supportive and direct. I believe that to improve as a dancer you need personal feedback and hard work. I am very passionate about sharing what I know to help other dancers reach their goals.

About Amanda

I am currently dancing with the Paul Taylor 2 Dance Company and on faculty teaching at the Paul Taylor School. While maintaining a professional dance career in New York City, I have been passionate about teaching dance for the past 9 years.

I have taught Master Classes and Intensive Workshops in the Paul Taylor style throughout the nation, as well as teaching Vaganova Ballet at the Joffrey Ballet School. I have taught in numerous public schools through teaching residencies with Rioult Dance Company and Education In Dance. I believe these experiences have taught me how to assess individuals
quickly and provide clear feedback in a positive and supportive way.

My teaching style is energetic, and focused on the personal experience each dancer is having, while giving direct and clear feedback. My goal is to help students reach their artistic potential in their dancing by helping to combine technique with lyricism, rhythmic dynamics and emotive qualities.

Private lessons can be catered toward each individual. Either for an upcoming audition, feedback on solo or ensemble choreography, to help personalize technical corrections and to help push technique to a higher level, or for non dancers to help understand movement and feel comfortable in a beginning class.

I quit ballet when I was seven years old—a decision I very much regret till this day; therefore, I decided to pick it up again. Giorgia is the best teacher I could have chosen.

Since I did not practice ballet for a while, it takes me some time to remember all the basics, which can get frustrating, but Giorgia makes me feel comfortable—she is patient and nonjudgmental.

Moreover, she is sweet, dedicated, encouraging, incredibly skilled and enthusiastic when it comes to teaching different skills (which in turn keeps you excited about learning new skills as well). She breaks down every movement very carefully and clearly, and step by step, she perfects your pose.

The classes go by really fast—unfortunately, because I truly enjoy them so much! I will definitely keep taking classes with Giorgia to keep improving and would wholeheartedly recommend her as a ballet teacher to everyone!
