As a performer, Mr. Lin has performed excerpts from ballets such as “Swan Lake,” “Sleeping Beauty,” “Paquita,” and “Le Corsaire.” As an instructor, Mr. Lin served as ballet program director at Dance Vision in Johnston, Iowa from 2010-2017.

    Class Description:

    Mr. Lin’s ballet class focuses on proper placement and alignment, which is the key for clean and efficient techniques. Mr. Lin’s class includes barre work to warm up the muscles, and center work, where dancers apply the movement principles acquired from the barre exercises to move freely through the space.
