Hello talents,

My name is Jose and I'm from Spain, Europe. I've been a professional ballet dancer with more than 10 years of experience and I'm very looking forward to inspire YOU. I am an ABT® Certified Teacher, who has succesfully completed the ABT® Teacher Training Intensive in Pre-Primary through Level 5 of the ABT® National Training Curriculum. I've trained with the most inspiring teachers, worldknown, and danced all around the planet in theaters like the Royal Opera House in London, the Opera House in Sidney, The SemperOper Ballet in Germany, etc. During my years as a dancer I've performed all the classical repertoire as Swan Lake, Don Quixot, Giselle, Nutcracker, Sleeping Beauty, etc. in many different roles. Ask me if there's anything else you will like to know, my students say "I'm an open book". I also prepared students for the Youth American Grand Prix placing top 3 position and being invited to NYC Finals. I'm looking forward to meet you and start our journey together.
Many thanks for reading,
JC

I have only had one lesson so far. He is very expensive but for good reason. He teaches in a way no ballet instructor ever has before for me. He sees the body and understands it. He can tell by looking at you what you are having problems with. He is very helpful and can pull exercises off the top of his head that can help with whatever you are struggling in. It is a great investment to your career to take lessons with him.

Jose has a very impressive background, and is a true professional. He is so easy to work with, and really cares about his students. Five star instructor!!

Jose is an amazing teacher! He really listens to what you want to learn and accomplish and then personalizes each lesson to you. For me, it is this extra level of care that makes his sessions so wonderful. Jose has an amazing eye for detail and therefore is really good at focusing on proper technique. I’ve learned so much in just a few sessions! His passion, talent, and fun class environment really made me leave each class feeling more accomplished, motivated, and determined to keep practicing and improving. But not only is he a great teacher, he is also an amazing choreographer. I’ve loved all the dances he has created just for me -- he even was able to incorporate my own personality and interests through certain moves in the dance. That’s a sign of a truly caring teacher. Jose is definitely a gem in the dance world!

Jose is the best Teacher ever. His method and commitment to building a solid foundation in which to grow from inspired me from minute one. He articulates everything so well and is so patient. His encouragements and then huge smiles every time I got something right gave me such a huge sense of accomplishment. I'm an absolute beginner over age 50. After 2 lessons, I've seen actual results. I can't wait for my next lesson. I highly recommend Jose to anyone interested in learning this phenomenally beautiful dance.

I just started taking lessons with Jose, he is an excellent teacher, his knowledge and talent for ballet are very impressive. I haven't taken dance since I was a kid (I am in my late 30's). I wanted to take ballet again because it is something I always regretted quitting. However, I was never really a dancer and feel like I have two left feet. Jose is very patient and also creates a very comfortable environment for me because I am also shy. Whether you are a complete beginner like me or an advanced dancer, I highly recommend Jose!

Jose has been a really good teacher for me. He prepared me to do some auditions that finally I got the job.

Jose is so knowledgable, experienced and passionate about ballet and teaching it. He really wants the best for his students and to pass on everything he has learnt over the years and this really comes through in his teaching. You feel immediately comfortable with him and he really gets the best out of every student. He makes ballet so easy to understand and I saw a massive improvement so quickly in everyones technique. Great ballet teachers who understand correct technique and save students from injury are hard to find especially on the West coast so Jose is definitely the one to hire.
