I didn't know a person could improve this much in three short weeks! Traveling from Michigan to Memphis to train privately with Dmitri was worth the trip! Some of the summer programs our daughter has attended include Central Penn. Youth Ballet and National Ballet of Canada. None of these compare to the personal one-on-one training she received with Dmitri. Imagine all of this in a kind and caring classroom. His ability to see what is holding a dancer back in training ....creates an environment that is positive, encouraging and easy to learn. Dmitri's technique has not only eliminated our daughter's chronic hip pain which she has struggled with for four years, but it has lengthened her muscles and strengthened her back. Her arabesque is quickly improving, her turning more consistent and she has developed a beautiful line.
