What Our Teachers Say

 
 
 

The most fulfilling part of my job is sharing my love for dance with my many students. My goal is to teach technique in a friendly, controlled, safe, noncompetitive atmosphere. I strive to bring out the inner dancer in all my students and always concentrate on the positive.

Cheryl Mauck
 
 
 

Even if only for an hour during their busy week, the Ballet for Life classes offer students a chance to focus solely on ballet movement, allowing them to take a step away from life’s hectic pace. Students often comment that this hour is one of the highlights of their week.

The BTM Instructors enjoy being able to share their love of dance with the next generation of dancers and dance lovers. Watching the students grow and guiding them toward realizing their full potential is a joy and privilege!

Ballet Theatre of Maryland
 
 
 

I love sharing tap as an artform and great exercise. Students enjoy music, props, exercise, and friendships. Dancers move as chorus and soloists using our mind, body, and soles (souls).
