MY EXPERIENCE

Les Grands Ballets Canadiens de Montreal
.
Les Ballets Jazz de Montreal.

Over 20 yrs experience teaching ballet to children 3 yrs and up, teenagers and adults.

Independent choreographer.
Theatre experience through Studio Anne Page.

MY PHILOSOPHY

Inspired by the ELEANOR MOORE ASHTON method of teaching Ballet, young children
 (3-6 yrs) are introduced to the world of ballet through songs and imagination. 
The technique and guidance are provided by the teacher and her assistant(s), while the young ones explore their own creativity.
As the children mature (7 yrs & up), the technique is reinforced and refined to provide a solid base which permits the ballerinas to progress to higher levels including pointwork.
Ballet provides the awareness needed to fully appreciate the other forms of dance (Jazz, Spanish, Folk, Modern, Broadway, etc.). With this in mind, students are introduced to these other techniques by the choice of choreographies selected for the year. Each in turn developing a new and different sense of rhythm and expression.
