'Inspiring Passion, Fulfilling Potential'

I am delighted to offer Coaching Programs for students aged 9 years and over.

The Coaching Programs are designed to challenge, inspire and accelerate aspiring students who wish to refine and increase their classical skill levels.

*All Coaching Programs are completely independent and not affiliated with any school. 

* Support from the student's Dance School is highly recommended before applying

*Acceptance is upon successful audition.

The Training

The Vaganova method is the training style most internationally renowned full time ballet schools base their teaching systems. This is not a syllabus of set classes, but  a way of teaching that produces the beautiful use of the upper body with liquid like extensions, that we see in Companies today.

I feel that it is so important that students wishing to attend one of these prestigious institutions, start to train and gain knowledge of this method at an earlier age.

Body Conditioning/Pilates work assists students to gain anatomical knowledge and increased strength to engage the correct muscles to acquire a clean and sound technique.

Variations coaching provide students with the vital coordination skills and artistic development that are aligned with professional training.

Along with a dedicated a pointe class that allows for a methodical and comprehensive approach, students are provided with  vital knowledge and skills that allows them greater opportunities in the future.
