Ballet lessons in San Francisco for children of all levels and adults beginners

Methodology

I am a 21 year-old and have been studying dance for more than 15 years (ballet, modern and contemporary). I have been a ballet teacher in Switzerland and Santa Barbara and I am currently teaching in the Bay Area.
Usually, my ballet classes are given in a studio. They start with a warm up on the floor, which is followed by exercises at the barre, and end with exercices in the center.
As the classes that I offer here would not take place in a studio but in your home, what I offer isn't a traditional ballet class but:
- exercises to build strength and flexibility
- ballet exercises that space allows
- tips on technique
- and more according to your needs
I am looking forward to dancing with you!

Background

Students in my class have given me feedback and said that they:
- enjoyed taking my classes, had a fun time
- improved rapidly
- learned a lot in a short amount of time thanks to my corrections and observations
- discovered a variety of different ballet steps
- explored different dynamics of movement

Rates

Transportation Fee : $10
Rate for online lessons : $30/h
Rate for 5 hours of lessons : $110
Rate for 10 hours of lessons : $200

Details

My rates vary based on my travel (time and distance).

Perfect! Lena has very good ballet technique and is a very good instructor. We did a lesson over Skype. Would like to continue taking classes with her.

Gabrielle

Perfect! Ms. Léna is a wonderful teacher! She gives very clear advice and is a kind person. I not only felt like I was getting quality teaching from someone who really knows her technique, but also like I was spending time with a friend I could laugh with. She is very encouraging, too! I definitely recommend!

Léna's response

My first class with Gabrielle went very well! She is motivated, willing to learn and interested in all comments and advice I can give her. She knows what she wants to focus on, what goals she is reaching for and with that in mind we have an easy time setting a class that is most helpful for her. It was overall a great experience and I am looking forward to future classes with Gabrielle!

Léna is very excited about teaching and does her best to help her students learn French. She is very patient, clear, reliable and encouraging. She has an excellent knowledge of the subject she is teaching!
