    Class Description




    Antonia's ballet class works in placement, precision, speed, and musicality, passing on knowledge from her brilliant teachers Craske, Balanchine, Maggie Black, Suki Shorer, Stanley Williams, David Howard, Tina Bernal and Julio Horvath and Hilary Cartwright. Her class suits all forms of dance, especially modern, as it is meant to set you up for the day whatever your medium of dance is. Its lines are uncluttered to allow clarity in ones work and free the dancer for any style while keeping them strong and healthy as well as improving.
