"I am an 'older' athlete that started back to ballet 4 months ago after a 30 year hiatus! My primary goals were to improve my strength, flexibility and balance in order to continue my ultra-running throughout my 'golden years.' The private zoom sessions have kept those goals intact and I am seeing amazing results with the ballet training Julie is providing me. I enjoy seeing her friendly face each week via Zoom and her engaging instruction! Thank you for keeping the classes going! Consistency and practice leads to success!" - Tammy G.
