A Chat with Ballet Body by Jasmin
What services does your business offer and what makes your business stand out from the competition?
While claiming to include ballet, many "barre” classes are mixes of Pilates and isometric moves that have nothing to do with dancing. My class is ballet, pure and simple. Learn ballet steps, tone muscle, have fun dancing!
Exercise is challenging. How do you keep clients motivated and engaged?
Being rushed through a mindless, repetitive workout? That's no fun! In my ballet class, you will receive constant feedback for proper form and alignment. I attend to the unique issues of each body and give students time to fully understand the exercises.
What was the inspiration to start or run this business?
I hope to transform the seemingly esoteric world of ballet dancing into an accessible workout for adults. Inattentive ballet teachers can be a danger for novices learning the craft. I create an intimate space, carefully correcting individual form to help prevent injury and safely execute movements.
What do you love most about your job?
I love seeing my students get stronger and improve in their dancing! It's so rewarding and validates my skills as an instructor.
