Stephen has been giving our teenager daughter weekly lessons in "J-pop" dancing. Even though his background does not include this particular style, he has done a great job of staying ahead of our daughter, and-even more importantly-encouraging and motivating her to keep at it. (Since dancing is one of the few exercises she will do willingly, this is key!) She looks forward to the weekly lesson and so do we.

I emphasize freedom of movement and love for dance. Very willing and able to tailor class to the individual student's needs, using my expertise and experience to identify how to work most effectively with each individual. I am a certified teacher in the ABT® National Training Curriculum in Levels Pre-Primary through Level 5.

Not only is Eliza a certified teacher, but she is very insightful and genuinely cares about your goals. She has given great tips and suggestions to help me improve both in and out of her class.

Since I started taking lessons with her about 5 months ago, I've seen a lot of improvement. She makes sure that you work hard every single class and she doesn't let you get away with not doing your best. Also, she has been working with me on fixing the bad habits I never knew I had before she pointed them out. Moreover, she is very observant and tailors each class to work on the things she sees you struggling with, even if you don't realize it yourself that you are having trouble. Eliza has taught me so much and I'm sure that anyone would benefit from taking her class.

I graduated in classical ballet Cecchetti method.
I am also graduated in the method Orazio Costa (mimetic method).
I like to experience the two forms that are complementary.
The first: the grace through exercise and awareness.
The second: the freedom through organically reunited with nature.
The body speaks and means. Let's give voice together

My goals are to work on their coordination and flexibility along with proper ballet technique. All classes will be tailored to each student accordingly.

She's very flexible and very knowledgeable about different types of stretches for your body. She is helping me work on my splits and straddle. I usually can get a front left leg split after an hour's session. I highly recommend her for flexibility training.

Lindsay is very in tune with the needs of those she trains. She modifies the exercises to adjust for injuries but makes sure you are still challenged.

My goal in classes is to create a fun, positive atmosphere and pass on the love I have found for this beautiful art form. I put a strong emphasis on teaching clean, pure technique from the start of class. I believe that only once that is developed, students have the freedom to really dance and move from a place of stability and core strength. This provides a dancer with the freedom to push past their own boundaries and enjoy the movement quality, and this is my goal for each of my students!

I don't know where to begin. It's hard to put in to words how wonderful our experience with Gracie was. She is able provide constructive criticism while still maintaining my daughter's motivation. Gracie is able to push hard while at the same time continue to be positive which reflects in my daughter's efforts. We initially thought we would do a few lessons but each week we found that we were looking forward to our lessons so we continued. Unfortunately she is relocating otherwise we would continue lessons with her indefinitely! She is great teacher who will be sorely missed but we are grateful for the experience she has given my daughter.

Gracie is an exceptional ballet teacher. Her instructions are delivered with ultimate patience and her explanations on how to execute steps with technique is crystal clear. She is extremely encouraging and knows how to motivate her students. In addition, she is able to listen and attend to her students needs if special attention is required due to an injury etc. Gracie is able to analyze why a student is having difficulty with execution and is then able to instruct on how to fix the problem by breaking it down into small attainable steps. Gracie is a real pleasure and so much fun to work with!
