Ballet

Teaching Philosophy

 

QUALITY in beginner classes exceeds quantity of steps


SLOW movement to develop neuro-muscular patterns


HONESTY in pursuing challenges and feedback
 

SPECIFIC short and long term goals
 

SPACING and order of classroom





The challenge is to explore limitless possibilities within form.

 

Classical Ballet explores countless fantasies beginning with one tendu.

Vaganova-Inspired Methodology
​​

​COMPLEXITY of exercises



CONSISTENCY of mastering steps before advancing



COMMUNICATION, asking why a step wasn’t successful



COORDINATION of the core through use of épaulement



ALLEGRO’S powerful takeoff and souring height


ARM’S ability, agility, plasticity, and fluidity



APLOMB, placement and poise



ATTENTION to details
