A Chat with Himel Dance Conservatory
What services does your business offer and what makes your business stand out from the competition?
Himel Dance Conservatory is the only classical ballet studio on the Westbank. We teach the Russian Vaganova method of ballet to students ages three through adult. We also offer an adult core strength and stretch program.
Exercise is challenging. How do you keep clients motivated and engaged?
Our classes are highly technical, targeted, but rewarding and fun. Adults start to see results immediately in the core strength and stretch program which is extremely rewarding for them.
What was the inspiration to start or run this business?
Bridget Himel has been a dancer for 32 years and decided to bring her passion for ballet to the westbank community.
What do you love most about your job?
It is so rewarding to see the "light go off" when a student acquires the technique needed to execute an exercise or variation that they had previously struggled with. I also love to see the happy faces of the adults in the core strength program when they start seeing almost immediate results!
