    Biography:

    Elizabeth Ferrell was born in St. Louis, Missouri and began her training with Alexandra Zaharias. At age 14, she was awarded a Ford Foundation Scholarship to study at the School of American Ballet and upon graduation was chosen by Peter Martins to receive the Danish American National Cultures Exchange scholarship to study with the Royal Danish Ballet. In 1985, Elizabeth was invited by Mikhail Baryshnikov to become a member of American Ballet Theatre where she danced from 1985 to 1998. During that time she appeared in much of the classical and contemporary repertory. She also performed with the Pennsylvania Ballet, Eglevsky Ballet, New York City Opera, Alessandra Ferri’s “Stars of the American Ballet”, and most recently Hong Kong Ballet. She can be seen in several “Dance in America” programs for PBS, Herbert Ross‘ movie “Dancers” and Frederick Wiseman’s documentary “Ballet”. Elizabeth took part in the inaugural teacher training program of ABT’s National Training Curriculum and is now an ABT certified instructor. She has taught at Ballet Hispanico in New York, Danceworks in London, and the Hong Kong Academy of Performing Arts and guest taught in the U.S., London and Hong Kong. Elizabeth currently teaches at the JKO School of American Ballet Theatre.


    Class Description:



    This class is ideal for both classical and contemporary dancers at the Intermediate/Advanced/Professional level and follows the traditional structure of a ballet class- barre followed by center work- with an emphasis on technique, musicality and artistry.
