I am a professional ballet dancer and I love to help students achieve "clean" un-stylized classical technique, whether they hope to gain admittance into top ballet schools, summer programs, audition for companies or to simply get in shape. I began training at age 3 and have experience with small and large schools. For my high school years, I trained with American Ballet Theatre's JKO School, where I received ABT certification to teach Levels Pre-Ballet - 3, then did my post secondary training with Canada's National Ballet School in Toronto. Since graduating, I have danced with Les Grands Ballet Canadiens in Montreal, Copenhagen's Tivoli Ballet Theatre and Semperoper Ballett in Dresden, Germany. I would be more than happy to share tips and encourage any age student as they reach for their individual goals.

About Isabelle S.

Levels Taught: Beginner, Intermediate, Advanced

I love sharing the beautiful classical art of ballet with young students! I like to keep class fun while gently helping students retain habits that encourage a language of clean classical technique through proper form, allowing them to work towards their creative potential. I received my early training starting at 2 1/2 in my hometown of Philadelphia and moved to New York after receiving an invitation to study with the JKO School at age 16. I furthered my training after graduation in Toronto with Canada's National Ballet School. SInce then I have danced professionally in Canada, Germany and Denmark. I am currently pursuing my interest in artistic collaborations with contemporary visual artists. When not dancing or working on photography and video projects, I enjoy sewing and designing pieces for a small clothing line.

Great!! Isabelle was everything I was hoping for to help my daughter work on her technique and gave kind words of support. I felt very confident having someone with professional experience.

Isabelle is a great listener and made me feel much more confident after a few classes. She knows how to make me work so the classes were worthwhile. I feel like I improved and had fun! Five stars!

I took a few classes with Isabelle this past year and she was so approachable and easy to talk to. She made me work hard but it was a fun session each time! I felt like I made progress. Five stars!

Isabelle was so patient with me and really broke down the steps. She also helped me understand which muscles to strengthen (and how) so I feel like I can understand how to get to where I want to be. Highly recommend!
