My Teacher Intro
I have been teaching dance, ballet and exercise classes for over 25 years in gyms, dance schools and in private homes. I would now like to embrace online zoom classes to broaden my scope. I love the challenges and beauty that classical ballet offers, both to the dancer and the teacher, and am passionate about how to keep fit and healthy, and this means that I am continually researching. As a dancer at heart, my style of teaching enhances the joy of dance and movement, with inspiration from beautiful music. I am empathetic and non-judgemental, but am always trying to help each individual reach their full potential, either as an experienced dancer, someone who would like to learn ballet basics, or someone who would like a low-impact effective conditioning class to define, tone and stretch into a leaner, stronger, happier person.

I have taught dance, and especially ballet since 1998, with my main focus on vocational level and adult classes. I have inspired many adult learners to improve their body-image and self-confidence through ballet classes. Some 'new-to-ballet' adults have even gone on to take ballet exams with excellent results.
Initially, I taught aerobic and step classes in gyms, but this developed into private conditioning classes in people's homes. I also develop specific conditioning classes to help ballet students improve their technique.
This class is for you if you require a specifically designed class on a 1-to-1 basis, either in a Body-Conditioning format, or a Ballet Class.
This class is for those who have dancet ballet before, and would like to improve on their potential.
This class is a low-impact, highly effective strength, tone and stretch class for all levels.
Stimulate your body and brain by introducing the important concepts of classical ballet, including posture, position, coordination, poses and movements.
