Class Descriptions

Ballet

Teaching ballet is a passion of mine, and I enjoy creating classes that challenge and strengthen dancers to perform at their best. My approach involves building muscle, coordinating arm movements for port de bras, and testing rhythmic patterns, among other helpful techniques.

Having grown up learning the Cecchetti method and achieving my advanced exam, I later studied the Vaganova Method at The Australian Ballet School graduating with a Diploma. Since coming to the United States, I've been exposed to the Balanchine style, and I consistently incorporate all these influences into my classes.

Inspiring up-and-coming dancers through teaching is incredibly rewarding to me, and I'm passionate about helping them reach their full potential.
