Ballet is an outstanding, life-enriching activity for mind and body.
Every dancer’s body is unique and that is a beautiful thing.
Renée works with every dancer's unique ballet body to help them get the most out of healthy ballet technique. These classes are for all genders, all sizes, all backgrounds, all people.
Now, let's dance our hearts out!
