    This was a really fun class with Anna. The routine includes a variety of Ballet exercises, both slow and quick tempo which are great for students who have previous experience in Ballet. Anna also provides feedback and encouragement throughout the class making it enjoyable to participate. I took this class as an opportunity to see if I’d like to join a longer Ballet class and this sealed the deal for me!

    Amazing class, Anna conducted a floor barre session and we worked through common alignment and muscular weak areas, then she answered a ton of my questions at the last part of class. The more questions you have the more you will get out of class. I learned a lot. definitely recommend.

    Anna is an excellent teacher! I'm a Ballet beginner, so she went through the basics with me. She was personable and knowledgeable, and gave me new perspectives on how to move and hold my body. I'm excited to apply what I learned in future classes. Thanks for the great experience, Anna!

    I took some ballet classes when I was in college and was looking for a beginner class for adults. The class wasn't too difficult but it wasn't too easy either. I liked that the instructor kept on repeating the basic terms and clarifying different positions. I would take this class again!

    I loved that the class was not too big and I was able to get individual attention. It was geared towards beginners but not too basic, simple choreography and movements were mixed in. 90mins flew by fast! Recommend this class!
