My deep love of ballet, & especially pointe, is strongly rooted in the fundamentals of ballet conditioning. One of the greatest tools that I utilize, is the ballet barre. Through the work that we do on the barre, you will become a stronger, & more confident dancer, as you will be able to put to use proper technique. Even if you're goal isn't to get into pointe shoes, ankle strength is still extremely important! Through the barre, you WILL gain the strength that's needed for pointe, if desired:)

About Jaime
Hi, my name's Jaime! I've been dancing almost my entire life, & have loved every moment of it! My main focus was always on ballet, but for many years, I also took modern, jazz, and hip-hop classes, & was also a competitive figure skater. I started dancing at age 4, & danced all the way through the first 2 years of college, where I danced with the Ensemble Company. I was originally a dance major, & dancing with the school dance company, until a bad injury forced me to have to give up dancing as a profession, as well as competitive figure skating. To say that this was beyond devastating, would be the biggest understatement of my life! Two years ago, I was introduced to AcroYoga, & taught classes with my first partner. I recently attended the LIFT School of Acrobatics teacher training program, & I'm currently training partner acrobatics, tum
bling, hand balancing, & Russian bar, at the San Diego Circus Center.
I really look forward to meeting you, & sharing my love of all of these areas!

I've studied ballet (eventually getting to pointe) on and off for seven years with a number of teachers using different technique standards. If ballet is something you'd like to try, or perhaps you're an actor looking for more movement training, I'd love to teach you! While I could teach up to an intermediate level, I prefer working with beginners one-on-one. Private lessons allows me to take the time to show you the ropes and proper technique without the pressure of a fast-paced classroom environment. This can be especially helpful for those who may be unsure about dancing in front of others or are coming at it past the "typical" ballet age and are yet to find a class that makes them feel at home! I have this problem myself and I am only in my 20's (a lot of ballet classes near me have mainly young teens as students)! So whatever your goals are with ballet, or if it's just something you want to try out, let's talk and make a plan for some training! I also love working with kids on ...

About Carissa
Hi! I'm Carissa, a working actor and playwright, and would love to work with you on your craft! I grew up heavily immersed in the arts from a young age. For Middle School and High School I attended one of the top Performing Arts schools in the State of California, where I was able to take classes such as ballet, tap, jazz, acting, and playwriting daily. After that, I earned a spot in, and graduated from, the BFA Acting program at the University of North Carolina School of the Arts. After taking a year to work professionally in theatre and television, I moved to Ireland to earn my MFA in Playwriting from The Lir Academy (an affiliate school of London's RADA). Teaching has been a big part of my life, from private study to running theatre camps for kids. I'm well versed in the drama school audition trail and would love to help you prepare fo
r this exciting time! I also offer playwriting lessons/critique, and beginner lessons in dance (ballet, jazz, tap). I look forward to hearing from you!

I approach ballet with a combination of discipline and fun! I believe that learning technique is very important but means little if you do not love what you are doing. I primarily utilize Russian style technique but also pull from a variety of other techniques. My hope is to help you grow as a dancer and to enjoy the beauty of the art form.

My Passion for dance began at a young age, and has carried through my life. Not only has dance been part of my life, but also I continue to explore dance within educational settings.

Benita understands how to teach passion and expression to others. She has the unique talent not only as a dancer herself but as a teacher to bring than on to her students. Very few teachers can do that.
To quote from Mozart in the jungle.
She dances/teaches with the blood.
