I am a former professional ballet dancer, having danced internationally with Dresden Semperoper Ballet, Les Grands Ballets Canadiens and Tivoli Ballet Theatre. 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 American Ballet Theatre's School at age 15. 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 based in New York City giving private and semi-private ballet lessons. Levels Taught: Beginner, Intermediate, Advanced Children's Lessons: I keep classes engaging and 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. Adult's Lessons: With a focus on proper alignment and listening to your body, we will work together at the barre to help you feel long and lifted. No dance experience is necessary and all levels are welcome. Barre consists of set exercises, going through the classic ballet barre routine and making all adjustments necessary. Combinations are personalized to student's comfort level and ability and will progress with time. Center work is optional.

Great!! The hour lessons go by so fast! Isabelle made the hard work fun. She really listened and made the lesson fit my goals.
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.
