Ballet helps build strength, stamina, balance, and focus. I have been teaching classical ballet technique for ten years. I trained at the Boston Conservatory, Atlanta Ballet, and Pittsburgh Ballet theater. I completed teacher training at American Ballet Theater in NYC. I believe that anyone can learn ballet and I always aim to make my sessions both challenging and fun. Whether you are just starting out or wish to refine your craft, I am here to help.

About Cecilia S.

I trained in classical ballet for most of my life at schools including the Boston Conservatory, Atlanta Ballet School, and Pittsburgh Ballet, among others. I grew up moving frequently and as a result I speak Swedish, English, and French fluently. I have been freelancing as a dancer, actor, and performing arts instructor for ten years. I have taught ballet to students of various ages and levels at schools including The Brookline Ballet School MA, Ballet Arts Pelham NY, Expressions Dance in Weymouth MA, and The Bronx House NY and shown original choreography, experimental video, and film work at festivals in Budapest, Greece, Iceland, MA, NYC, and PA. This year I have added Organic Movement and Physical Theater courses. These courses are for actors, artists of any medium, or for people with no performance training who wish to explore and develop their own movement practice.

Cecilia is a fantastic teacher. I took ballet with her after a long break. She made me feel very comfortable and confident. I thoroughly enjoyed studying with her.

I asked for Cecilia's help when i first started teaching ballet. I needed someone to guide me in creating a curriculum and to edit the curriculum after i wrote it. Cecilia was incredibly easy to work with, very efficient with her work and an actual pleasure to work with. After her help, I felt confident in my curriculum and my ability to teach a structured and skilled class to students of all ages.
