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!

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!

Careful private work on shape and function of the body in mechanics, musicality and image. 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.

Gina is so knowledgeable in so many areas of dance- technique, expressiveness, somatics, book recommendations, energy work. She is a rare gem of a teacher. Someone who goes way beyond a typical dance class. She has so much experience to draw from. 👏🏽👏🏽👏🏽👏🏽
Belinda and Daniella
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!

Hello Dancers-
I have been in love with Ballet since I was a small child. I was fortunate enough to dance with NYC Ballet and study with many great Ballet Masters. Danced in many ballets- my favorite ballet is Coppelia.
However, my ballet career was cut short due to an unexpected illness-MS.
However, once a ballerina or any form of a dancer You are Always a dancer!!!

So I began teaching ballet for the past 17 years to all levels and all ages. I truly believe in the foundation of Ballet- The discipline, the body alignment and awareness is essential for everything in life.

I teach in various dance studios in the Twin Cities and gyms. I also started teaching “Barre” Class but in my own Balletic Fashion to keep up with the kids-HA!

Because this is what I always say-ask anyone-Everything Starts with Ballet and its FUN to be more flexible than all your friends!!!!!

Hope to dance with you soon-Miss Maria

I took in person classes with Maria for three years at the YMCA in Minneapolis. I was so sad when she was let go from there due to the Covid furloughs. I gained so much flexibility and strength. And she was so much fun as a teacher and played great music!

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.

"Jessica is a class act! She has had excellent training in ballet, tap, and theatre dance. She has a true passion for passing her vast knowledge on to the next generation. Jessica comes to her classes prepared and with a plan! She has an incredible work ethic and she instills that discipline in her students. Her combinations are clear (she gives counts!), musical, and challenging - but in a fun way! She always encourages her students to reach past what they think they might be capable of - (“you can do it!”) - all while cheering them on and celebrating each and every personal victory. Jessica wants her students to succeed. Jessica has a great sense of humor and an infectious laugh! You will have fun dancing with her! If you are looking for an outstanding dance teacher - you should definitely train with Jessica!"

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. Lindsay is very skilled at shifting each class to what is best for me that day. She's skilled & knowledgeable, proficient, professional, friendly, fun & gives me a thorough workout!
