Ballet teacher offering private lessons in London, trained at the Royal Ballet School.

Methodology

I am currently working as a scientist and a musician and a dancer. I can teach any level of ballet from beginners to advanced including preparing for professional school auditions. It will be one-on-one coaching as I don’t have access to a studio but I can travel to your house.

Background

I trained at the Royal Ballet School for 5 years and Elmhurst School for Dance for 1 year and during my time at these schools, I performed with the Royal Ballet at the Royal Opera House as well as participated in performances at the Linbury Studio Theatre and Sadler’s Wells Theatre.

I moved into sicence after doing a physics degree and Ph.D. in nanotechnology but during that time I was involved in Imperial College Dance Company and I am currently still dancing with Cambridge Contemporary Dance.

I have been teaching ballet and contemporary dance for 9 years, mainly to adults in group classes, and I have been involved in choreography throughout this time, particularly with Cambridge Contemporary Dance.
