Hello Dancers-
I have been in love with Ballet since I was a small child. I was fortunate enough to dance with NYC Ballet and study with many great Ballet Masters. Danced in many ballets- my favorite ballet is Coppelia.
However, my ballet career was cut short due to an unexpected illness-MS.
However, once a ballerina or any form of a dancer You are Always a dancer!!!

So I began teaching ballet for the past 17 years to all levels and all ages. I truly believe in the foundation of Ballet- The discipline, the body alignment and awareness is essential for everything in life.

I teach in various dance studios in the Twin Cities and gyms. I also started teaching “Barre” Class but in my own Balletic Fashion to keep up with the kids-HA!

Because this is what I always say-ask anyone-Everything Starts with Ballet and its FUN to be more flexible than all your friends!!!!!

Hope to dance with you soon-Miss Maria

I took in person classes with Maria for three years at the YMCA in Minneapolis. I was so sad when she was let go from there due to the Covid furloughs. I gained so much flexibility and strength. And she was so much fun as a teacher and played great music!

I've had a great time with Ellen! She was able to create and teach me choreographies in multiple styles to a variety of songs that I wanted to dance to.

I've had prior dance experience, but I've always struggled with getting into character. Ellen really gave me space and encouragement to improve in that area.

She also made sure I was able to work around previous injuries. She always took me through a thorough warm up, checked in with how my body was feeling, and adapted movements if necessary.

A professional dancer myself, I strive to bring my experience and expertise into each lesson. We will begin with classic Barre work, followed by floor work and some choreography. Each lesson is crafted specifically with the student's unique goals in mind. I believe the best learning environment is a positive and supportive one, and I strive to truly help my students understand dance technique, while having a good time.

45 min or longer recommended, but express 30 min class also available.

Would not hesitate to recommend Emily.

Emily's background in musical theater is perfect for teaching our 10-year-old daughter! We signed her up for jazz to help her with choreography. We love that Emily teaches routines with Broadway music. She has also been very responsive by email, and Emily tailored our lessons to best fit our daughter.

I did yoga regularly with Mayuko when she lived in Seattle and it was an incredible experience. She's one of the best teachers I've ever had, just really sweet, fun, and knowledgeable. I knew very little about yoga, and I'm hardly fit or flexible, but I was able to learn so much from her!

I firmly believe anyone can dance. There should be no limitations: not ability, age, gender, body type, weight, or prior experience. That's why I teach dance to people of all ages.

My classes are rooted in classical ballet with influences from Balanchine technique. I love teaching beginners the fundamentals of barre work, turns, and leaps. But I also have the expertise to teach intermediate-level dancers who wish to improve upon their technique.

Each dance class starts with a barre exercise intended to challenge the mind and body. I will then guide dancers in a stretch and across the floor technique. Choreography can be worked on or taught when requested.

I began studying dance at age 3 in the Denver, CO area. Throughout my life, I've had the privilege of studying ballet, pointe, lyrical, jazz, and contemporary. After graduating from high school, I pursued an education at the University of Wisconsin-Madison, where I was also a part of the dance program. I quickly switched from ...

"Jessica is one of the most passionate educators I know. Having trained intensely in ballet growing up, she understands the importance of hard work and discipline in the dance studio. She holds her students up to the highest of standards while creating an incredibly positive, fun, and safe environment to work in. She has worked with a wide range of ages and adjusts quickly to whatever the needs of the students are. She is nurturing and sensitive and is able to handle any challenging situation with grace and poise. As a highly trained dancer and actress, she has a great wealth of knowledge to pass on to her students. She loves theater and dance and her joy shines through her work. Her passion is contagious and her students can’t help but soak it up like a sponge. As an employee, she is easy to work with, collaborative, timely, responsible and trustworthy. Jessica goes over and beyond her job expectations and her classrooms are always buzzing with excitement and sweat! I can’t recommend Jessica highly enough!!!"
