About the class

The open class I offer on Monday is geared towards adults who have some experience in dance and a basic understanding of the ballet vocabulary.  It is a two-hour class, allowing time for a warm up using elements of contemporary dance floor work, stretching, core strengthening and modern dance.

Following the warm up we do a full ballet class. The class is serious, but always with an emphasis on having fun. Constant themes for the lessons include: healthy alignment of the body; musicality, expressiveness; freedom of movement.

Teaching approach

During my years as a ballet dancer, I was always interested in other forms of dance and training which led me to seek out teachers who were less conventional in their approach to ballet. I explored methods like White Cloud (now Gyrotonic), Pilates and Yoga. My background as a swimmer and gymnast inform my dancing and teaching as well.
