My 8-year-old daughter Josephine met with Ms. Gill for in-depth, one-on-one ballet lessons. She had received feedback from her teachers that she was struggling to keep up in class and was asked to repeat the previous year again.
I was not sure what to expect, but the depth of Julie's thoughtful observations, calm tutelage and precise instructions exceeded my hopes.
In one hour, my daughter immediately "got" what 4 years of ballet hadn't been explaining to her about turnout and foot placement.
