Hi, and welcome to my profile! I am a Manhattan based, freelance classical violinist and aerialist with a passion for teaching. A west coast transplant, I received my bachelor's degree in Violin Performance from the San Francisco Conservatory of Music, where I was a student of Axel Strauss. Two years ago I moved out to New York to pursue my master's of music as a student of Hiroko Yajima at Mannes College, which I completed in 2011. I have over 20 years of ballet and dance training, and have performed professionally with Ballet Idaho and Santa Clara Ballet. Here in NY, I am an active performer and teacher of aerial skills and flexibility training. I have trained in contortion with Jonathan Nosan and Isaac Pena. In my spare time, I like to read, write, and practice aerial arts!
I have 10+ years of extensive ballet training that I am able to apply in teaching the technique to others.

Have taught children and adult beginner levels all the way to advanced pointe/ballet lessons to ages 10-18.
My name is Bridget C. and I am a professional modern/contemporary dancer in New York City. I have been teaching since 2008, starting with ages 3-18 at my hometown dance studio in Liverpool, NY.

Dance fitness includes extra strength building techniques using Barre Method & Pilates style core building exercises.
I am a former Principal dancer with Pacific Northwest Ballet. I have taught for the last eight years - technique, pointe, and variations class to kids and teens, and run rehearsals for upcoming performances. A year ago, I went through training in one of the Barre Method classes and worked with adults in a more fitness related category for two months before moving to New York. I am a strong believer in health, wellness and good diet in order to stay in your peak condition for dance. As a dancer, I always had to work to keep more muscle on my body so I'm particularly concerned with not only how to train for dance but to build strength as well to enhance performance and prevent injuries.
