Maria explains steps carefully (step by step). Repeats as necessary. It is really great to have whole choreography while learning level 1. Maria makes all efforts to have online students involved in the class.
Marel was absolutely amazing. She made me feel comfortable in class and provided great feedback and instruction. Coming into a ballet class in a studio as an adult male was daunting so having a comfortable atmosphere was perfect.
Loved the course! Thank you for your wonderful teaching style, you have great patience, attitude and energy
