"Joanna is the best Classical Dance coach I have met in my career as a dancer. Not only have I, first hand, witnessed the growth of Joanna's students but I have had the honor of working with numerous professional dancers trained by her.
In a choreographic and rehearsal setting, Joanna is nothing but professional. Her attention to detail is superb and she expects nothing but the best from her pupils. Each dancer is instilled with proper etiquette and decorum to ensure a successful and prosperous, professional career.
In addition, I have also has the pleasure of taking class with Joanna. I have never had such a gratifying and, may I say, challenging ballet class in my life! After class I was told by colleagues that I looked taller, and carried myself with more pride.
Joanna is nothing short of an amazing coach and just a wonderful human being! I always look forward to working with Joanna every chance I get."

For children and youth who love the artistry, expressiveness, and discipline of ballet, and thrive in a cooperative environment, there is no better learning and performing environment."
