Our approach to dance education is unique: we offer in-depth study in the technique and performance of the art of classical ballet as well as over twenty-five years of teaching experience. Unlike many dance schools, we offer the thorough and constructive feedback needed for students to progress without developing injuries or bad habits. Student/Teacher ratios are kept low in order to maximize time to address individual student needs. Teaching principles rely upon a sound knowledge of human anatomy and physiognomy. The classes are designed for both the non-professional adult and the aspiring professional dancer and/or teacher. The School of Ballet Espressivo has an international reputation such that we have had students come from such far-flung countries as Germany, France, Mexico, Brazil, Poland, Japan and United States among others, explicitly to study with us.
