Private Ballet Teacher

I’m available to teach private lessons for teens and adults interested in learning ballet for the first time, or who want to improve their skills. My strengths are patience, enthusiasm, and an unusual way of approaching dance. I’m not famous or particularly interested in becoming famous, so if that’s your goal, I’m not the right teacher for you. I strongly believe everyone can dance, and should. All bodies can learn to dance and enjoy themselves. Dance should be joyful, about self-expression, and a way of learning about your body and your spirit. Finally, I believe it’s never too late to start learning something new, and your bucket list should not wait until you retire.

About Kristen

I started dance later in life -- tap at 19 and ballet at 31 -- because I was so tall and awkward as a child. It never occurred to me that people my size could be dancers. I fell in love with dance as an escape from a stressful job teaching high school history. I saw such changes in myself the more I

More than incredible first experience, no question I will return and invest more time with her. She is extremely warm, personable and really knows her stuff. So happy to have found her!

Kristen is a human that makes her students feel immediately at ease. She is kind, quirky, and hilarious, but more importantly, she is patient and meets students where they are to ultimately fulfill their potential and their goals. I first started taking tap classes from Kristen a few years ago as a nervous adult (25 yo) seeking a bare bones beginner tap class. Since then, having incorporated exercises, games, and routines to awesome music, I have come leaps and bounds, built up my courage and confidence, and am proud to officially feel part of the tap community. If you’re looking for an excellent teacher, regardless of experience level, look no further!

At the age of 20, I was accepted to Dance Theatre of Harlem in NY and danced as a professional ballerina for about 6 years. Performed many principal roles and toured all over the US and overseas.
After my dancing career, I have been teaching dancers of different ages and experiences, from pre-ballet to adults and from ...

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 am a current principal ballet dancer with the San Diego Ballet, where I have been dancing for the past 14 years and 9 years as principal dancer. Prior to that I was a member of the Houston Ballet II. My teaching is based on my background of both the Chechetti Method and The French Method. I have the unique ability to be able to share as a professional ballet dancer what it takes to get to the highest level.

I teach all levels, and all ages. I have been teaching in schools all over Southern Calfiornia for the past 14 years, and I am the artistic director of the San Diego Ballet Summer Intensive.

My classes include:
* Barre work,
* Floor barre,
* Stretching/strengething,
* Body conditioning,
* Center work,
* Pointe work,
* Variations.

I make sure in my lessons to share everything I have learned over my 30 years of dancing both in training and professionally. I specialize in finding exactly what each dancer needs to improve. I know that everyone has different needs and I ...

When her hometown studio moved away she was devastated and about 6 months later we found this online class. It has been the best decision we’ve made. Thank you

"Kristen is an amazing teacher! She has such a wonderful way of inspiring a hard work ethic. She corrects with kindness when needed, and maintains a delightfully positive attitude throughout the lesson. Coming back to ballet in adulthood, as a former professional dancer— I had a lot of anxiety and trepidation about returning. Kristen has been incredibly supportive, understanding, enthusiastic, and compassionate; she guides with joy, intelligence and empathy, in a highly articulate and informative manner. I recommend her to anyone and everyone; take her class, you’ll be thrilled, I promise."
