I teach ballet, pointe, & Boris Kniaseff's brilliant Barre-a-Terre, for which I am best known, as I was Kniaseff's last chosen disciple, chosen by Kniaseff to perpetuate his method.
This floor barre is a ballet warm-up set to music, with choreographed exercises, & a directrelationship to dancing-standing, which we develop in center work. This technique develops proper alignment; increases stamina; builds strength; stretches muscles beyond apparent limitations; rehabilitates existing injuries; prevents future injuries; reduces stress & develops muscles without stress;integrates technique with the creative expression of dance.
This floor barre is followed by a classical center.
I have worked with dance companies & schools internationally.
I am fluent in French & English, with a BS in education.
Ballet Teacher & Coach
I am an experienced ballet teacher & coach, working with children, adults, & professionals, including professional track young people. In addition to classical ballet, I teach the brilliant Barre-a-Terre of Boris Kniaseff, having been his last chosen disciple. As well as ballet, I can teach movement therapy, jazz, contemporary, zumba, belly dancing, yoga, and chair dancing.
My expertise in developing correct alignment is particularly valuable to rehabilitate & prevent injuries and to integrate technique with creative expression.
I am a generous, skilled teacher/coach, with a talent for correcting body-alignment to bring out the best in each dancer.
