I was able to gain a stronger foundation, cleaner technique, enhanced artistry, and an overall better understanding of my body. I always left a session with Elina exhilarated and feeling accomplished but eager to keep working. She’s incredibly caring and always pushes you to your fullest potential. I highly recommend Elina’s class to anyone from a beginner to professional level!

Elina’s ballet sessions have kicked my butt!! In a good way! So I am going to keep doing it, because I’m getting amazing results.

Elina is a delightful artist, teacher and person. Our students of all levels felt so comfortable in her class and learned so much from basic corrections, artist nuances and how to expand how they approach class. She was able to provide our students a strong technical class that was still very danceable and fun for all. You’ll definitely enjoy studying with her!
