Dear Dmitri, Let me say THANK YOU so much. Those little secrets of our profession that you have shared with me have brought great results. And it is not just how I feel. I am also getting many compliments from my director and dancers in the company, because they see a big difference and a huge progress. I warmly wish you to have many disciples who are ready to hear you. In my case, your discoveries were the missing link in my ballet technique. I have danced for more than 20 years and I am grateful to you for extending my career.

Tyler Burkett, Principal, Los Angeles Ballet
