Hear from adults like you who have begin their journey with ballet
Carissa’s boyfriend bought her a surprise birthday present ballet class. It had always been her dream to dance ballet. She arrived at the studio having no idea what she was doing there! We had a fun class and she left having had a very special birthday gift to live her dream for an afternoon.
Bryan decided that he was ready to try something new. He contacted me for his first ballet lesson, and also began lessons in piano and singing. His goal is to learn enough ballet to move to a group setting and enjoy classical ballet.
Joslyn, budding actress
Joslyn is an actress preparing for a role that involves movement. She wanted to study classical ballet in order to learn to move and coordinate her body. She wanted to learn how to break out of her physical comfort zone and use physical expression in order to learn to move for her upcoming role. After 6 months together, she was even able to take a role in a chorus involving choreography and movement.
Katya always had a dream to dance ballet, but had never gotten to try it. She was intimidated by group class and wanted to take her first lessons in a private setting. Her pilates experience allowed her to learn quickly, and pick up the proper placement very quickly.
Lise came to me ready to try something new. She had never taken ballet before. As a live art model, she wanted to add a polished and classical line to her poses. Her prior experience in pilates allowed her to learn the basic placement very quickly.
