Private ballet coaching for pre-professional dancers

Having trouble getting ahead in your classes or with your technique? With private coaching, gain a fresh perspective on your dancing, and identify and eliminate habits that are holding you back.

Develop new tools and techniques to take you to the next level.

Private ballet coaching enables the teacher and student to dig deep into the students' current understanding of technique and help to shape and push the limits of understanding. In a one-on-one setting, the dancer has the opportunity to ask questions, focus on their specific weaknesses, and take an active role in their ballet training.

Whether you need a refresher, are looking for regular lessons to keep driving your training forward, or looking to master a specific step, private coaching can help you achieve your goals.

Meet your private coach and founder of Broche Ballet


Julie Gill is a welcoming yet detailed private coach who loves to help dancers reach their full potential, no matter their starting point.

She studied classical ballet in New York City in programs at Joffrey Ballet School, Steps on Broadway, Ballet Academy East, Alvin Ailey, and Peridance. During this time, she trained extensively under Kat Wildish at Alvin Ailey, where she performed classical ballet excerpts with classmates and local dance companies. She also studied privately with Beth Kurtz, where she gained significant deep understanding of classical ballet and classical ballet concepts.

Julie loves to break things down, solve problems, and help people understand the technique of ballet. She always brings a fresh perspective to dancers who are stuck in a plateau, are trying to grasp a fundamental concept, or get to the next level in her training. Dancers come to her with gaps in their technical understanding and leave with tools they can take with them during the rest of their training.

My 8-year-old daughter Josephine met with Ms. Gill for in-depth, one-on-one ballet lessons. She had received feedback from her teachers that she was struggling to keep up in class and was asked to repeat the previous year again.

I was not sure what to expect, but the depth of Julie’s thoughtful observations, calm tutelage and precise instructions exceeded my hopes.

In one hour, my daughter immediately “got” what 4 years of ballet hadn’t been explaining to her about turnout and foot placement.
