At Scottsdale Adult Ballet Fitness, John McAttee brings more than 30 years of teaching experience, as well as several teaching awards, to the ballet barre. During his ballet-fitness classes, John strictly adheres to the Cecchetti method—developed by Italian ballet master Enrico Cecchetti—as he leads fitness-seekers and dancers alike through body-sculpting dance steps. Though his classes are technically fitness-based, he remains true to this time-honored ballet method and artistry. He teaches his students to internalize and retain ballet's basic principles and form while performing each plié, tendu, and swan dive. Each ballet-fitness class is open to all students, though he teaches them in two levels, modifying movements to suit the needs of the students.
Though these ballet-fitness classes are the studio's bread and butter, John also holds private lessons, Broadway-style jazz sessions, and East Coast swing dance classes.
