Professional Ballerina and over 20 years of experience teaching classical ballet to children to adults.

My approach is to understand your needs and goals so I can develop a lesson plan that’s appropriate for your level and ambitions. I working closely with each of my students, helping them to better understand ballet steps and technique from the inside out. Dancers will build confidence through each lesson by learning how to properly use their body to build an solid foundation, so that the ballet technique becomes effortless enjoyment rather than a never-ending struggle.
