In my class the focus will be to tailor the movement to your specific needs whilst sharing with you all my knowledge to help you grow and achieve your goals. We will work on your technique as well as your artistry. A beautiful dancer doesn't only have a strong technique but the ability to embody a character and convey a story through movements. All my classes are open to all levels, if you are a beginner dancer we will take the time to go in details through every moves, if you are more advanced I will challenge your technique and artistry but most importantly we will have fun sharing our common passion for dance. I teach all my classes at my home dance studio with high speed internet and with a professional mic for you to be able to hear me clearly over the music.

Learn to dance with Ferlyn My History of Ballet: I have been teaching beginning and intermediate ballet for about 8 years. I am knowledgeable of both Classical (French and Russian), and Modern Ballet techniques. My main method of teaching is using Classical French Ballet and incorporate Modern Ballet movements. My Teaching Method: I assess each students' levels, knowledge and styles of learning, determine the best learning paths to incorporate into the lesson and bring a "natural movement" approach of training and education. With my method, this is to provide a collaborative & supportive environment as well as actively develop a person's life, culture and well-being. I strive to take a step further and deeper within the mind of the person who is learning dance and find one's "True Inner Dancer." **Sorry, NO POINTE Training** My Teaching Credits: John Robert Powers, San Diego Kings Dance Center My Training Credits: Kings Dance Center CSU, Los Angeles | BA in Theatre Arts and Dance: Dance emphasis PLEASE NOTE: For a more accurate look into my experience and resume, please refer to my profile. Also, any advanced, duet, group, weddings, birthdays, or any special occasion will differ than the usual lesson rate.

I am a current principal ballet dancer with the San Diego Ballet, where I have been dancing for the past 14 years and 9 years as principal dancer. Prior to that I was a member of the Houston Ballet II. My teaching is based on my background of both the Chechetti Method and The French Method. I have the unique ability to be able to share as a professional ballet dancer what it takes to get to the highest level. I teach all levels, and all ages. I have been teaching in schools all over Southern Calfiornia for the past 14 years, and I am the artistic director of the San Diego Ballet Summer Intensive. My classes include: * Barre work, * Floor barre, * Stretching/strengething, * Body conditioning, * Center work, * Pointe work, * Variations. I make sure in my lessons to share everything I have learned over my 30 years of dancing both in training and professionally. I specialize in finding exactly what each dancer needs to improve. I know that everyone has different needs and I mold my lessons with that in mind. Each dancer gets a personalized lesson, no two are the same. I also love to help with building confidence in each dancer. Ballet is an important art, and my goal is to help pass it on to anyone who wants to learn.

Private lessons with top Ballet instructors

The art of ballet is practiced in countries around the world, influencing dance and culture for centuries. Famous ballets such as The Nutcracker are performed for large audiences to this day.

Ballet is centuries old, first originating in the Italian Renaissance period before developing into a concert dance form in France and Russia. Due to its widespread practice, ballet has developed into a highly technical dance with its own particular vocabulary. Along with this, ballet has served as a foundation for many of the dance styles that have evolved over the years.

If you’re in search of great in-person coaching or the best online ballet lessons, TakeLessons offers both. Sign up for a lesson today!

Online Ballet Lessons for All Ages

Ballet is a great practice to start at any age. Many children begin taking ballet at an early age, learning to master each move as they move up in skill level. Adults can learn ballet, too, whether it’s simply to improve their dancing ability or prepare for auditions to participate in shows.

For example, our selection of ballet lessons for kids help to take the mystique out of ballet. Ballet has a reputation as a difficult and strenuous art form, one that takes dedication and hard work to master. Nevertheless, our ballet teachers help kids have fun as they learn, offering them achievable steps along their ballet journey.

Luckily, there are many resources for finding lessons online and in-person, such as on learning platforms like TakeLessons, which provide easy access to certified ballet coaches.
