I LOVE ballet. I practically live in my pointe shoes. [I remember when I first got them, I wanted to sleep in them the first night, I was so in love.]

I’m so excited to teach you all the basics/foundation/terminology you need!

Professional Ballerina and over 20 years of experience teaching classical ballet to children to adults.

My approach is to understand your needs and goals so I can develop a lesson plan that’s appropriate for your level and ambitions. I working closely with each of my students, helping them to better understand ballet steps and technique from the inside out. Dancers will build confidence through each lesson by learning how to properly use their body to build an solid foundation, so that the ballet technique becomes effortless enjoyment rather than a never-ending struggle.

Whether a beginner or experienced dancer, my lessons will add more to a student’s dancing. I focus on technical as well as artistic qualities and modify each class according to the student’s needs. With years of professional ballet dancing experience as well as learning from Russian, Cuban, Chinese, and American training styles, I can say that I am full of knowledge. I teach ballet technique, posture, stretching and strengthening, pointe, as well as modern/contemporary. I will contact the student before the lessons to discuss the class plan and goals you would like to achieve so it is important to keep an eye out for an email or phone call from me once a lesson is booked. I look forward to working with you!

I have been teaching dance for over 10 years. In that time I have found that, regardless of what style you are learning, everything is made of a few fundamental principals and components specific to that style. There are only so many ways you can move your feet and body. By understanding these principals & components, you can then put them together in any order with different style to create different dances. By laying the proper foundation, students have an easier time following choreography, learning to apply their own style, and even keeping up with a class. Once a dancer has a foundation to work up on, I introduce new concepts in layers to help dances feel better and develop a nicer aesthetic.

About Sasha
