About the lesson
My approach is to understand your needs and goals so I can develop a lesson plan that’s appropriate for your level and ambitions. I working closely with each of my students, helping them to better understand ballet steps and technique from the inside out. Dancers will build confidence through each lesson by learning how to properly use their body to build an solid foundation, so that the ballet technique becomes effortless enjoyment rather than a never-ending struggle.

Perfect! Hope is what you expect from a professional ballet teacher. She is efficient and specific and dedicated to building proper muscle strength and form in her students.
We realized during the session that plugging our laptop into the tv so my daughter could see her better seemed to transfer the sound there (instead of through the webcam). Because the tv had no microphone to pick up sound, my daughter could only communicate via the chat, although she could hear the teacher. Just a reminder to get your own tech worked out for a Zoom meeting ahead of time lol. Hope, however, was prepared and easy to see.
Perfect! I had a great first lesson!
