Hello there!
Thank you for your message and welcome to my site, I don't believe I have heard from you before. I am so pleased you contacted me and I hope to help you in every way I can to pursue your interest in ballet!

I have researched a few ballet schools in your area and look through some websites. Here are the links -

You can see them for yourself and decide which ones sound best to you. Also, see whether they are near enough where you live.

If you are interested in ballet and feel passionate about it, then I must reccommend my new eBook "7 Virtues of a Professional Dancer". There are 7 main virtues to really push you and become the best dancer you can be, but for you I would suggest Virtue 1:Passion or Virtue 7: Savvy. Each virtue is just $2.99 each, or you can download the whole set as a series.

I would love you to keep in touch and let me know your thoughts. How did you become interested in ballet? I also took gymnastics before I took ballet more seriously. I feel it gave me an advantage on the co-ordination and movement side of ballet, so you might find it helps too.

Anyway, that's all for now but enjoy looking through my site! It is the ultimate ballet dancers guide :)

Best wishes,
