Careful private work on shape and function of the body, part by part. Breaking down the language of the movement so you know what you are doing when and how to carefully develop the parts that are weakest by separating them from the mix of all the movement and then studying them minutely until the physical process makes sense to your mind and body.

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."

I've been dancing ballet for over 20 years, trained in the R.A.D ballet system, and Cecchetti technique, but most recently and most extensively in the Vaganova method. I teach all levels and all ages, from toddlers to adults, beginning through advanced. I set out to de-mystify this style of dance; to make it approachable and enjoyable no matter what my students' goals and interests are. I worked for years in a dance supply store as the primary pointe shoe fitter and was sought out in the area for my expertise, skill, and personalized care to each dancer, primarily first time pointe students. I have years of experience in helping aspiring ballerinas to develop the strength and coordination necessary for successful pointe work.
I have taught group, as well as private ballet classes to students ranging from 6-18 years old, as well as to beginner-intermediate level adult students. My focus is on proper alignment, strengthening of the particular muscles required to be able to execute classical ballet repertory, as well as on fluidity of movement and artistic expression. While Ballet is a highly stylized and physically demanding dance technique, I encourage my students to express themselves from a place of joy and love for the art form.
I've studied at the Juilliard School in a level 5 ballet class with Alphonse Poulin. The dance companies I have done lead roles in are Nevada Ballet Theater, Minnesota Dance Theater, and iLuminate.
