Adult Ballet Classes

 Hello ballern

I'm OlIa

I am the ballet educator who is teaching adult students online since 2020 and offline since 2012, in a thorough and professional way.

Ballet technique is a concoction of skills which can be learnt by those who are ready to dedicate themselves to it. Body type, age, and talent have little to nothing to do with performance. 

I took my first ballet lesson when I was five, and I still feel equally mesmerised every time I immerse myself in this art. I’ve always felt called to help others along their ballet journey.

After being qualified with two Diplomas in Dance Education and a Masters’ degree in Dance and teaching dozens of students on and off line, I deeply understand anatomy, growth, and pedagogy. My experience has given me enough knowledge to develop my C.O.R.E. (Centre Outline Rotation Experience) framework. This helps me guide my students in order for them to develop their overall alignment, technique, and musicality until they uncover the ballerina they are hiding inside.

The most effective way to do that is through my Private Ballet Sessions.

Hi wonderful ballerina!

I’m Olia, the adult ballet educator behind The Dancer Next Door.

 This what one of my students has to sa 

"My name is Stephanie.
I'm an adult ballet dancer.

I’ve danced for four years. I’ve been on pointe for two. And the opportunity to work with Olia, in her one on one mentoring programme, it was definitely a really good decision. I didn’t think I was the ideal student due to my age, but actually, I am and so are you. It doesn’t matter what age you are.

Olia helped me in several areas. She helped me with confidence, technique, and goal setting and all of those kind of go hand in hand. Olia is like having your ballet best friend, your ballet encyclopaedia and your ballet instructor all rolled into one person. So if you choose to work with her, you’re going to see improvements. My instructor saw improvements in me. And that’s been really exciting for me.

Also, she has a membership that I’m a part of as well with classes and I think that her classes are good for any level of dancer, going over technique, getting corrections, and just answering questions for all of us. So I think that you’ll be really happy if you choose to work with Olia. I know I’ve been really happy and I don’t want to live without her in my life ever again.”

not sure yet?

I used to be where you are now…

I was craving to be taken seriously but I struggled to find a teacher who saw more in me than just a hobbyist.

But let me pull back the curtain and show you how I transformed when I followed the method I’m teaching today. 

In two years I progressed more than I had in my entire life.

This is me en pointe, on stage for the first time 

(At pre-intermediate level! Only after 9 months of being en pointe).

“I’ve been working with Olia [for a few months now] when I joined both the [group class] and also her private lessons. We have been developing my skills so much, both in the classes and in our private lessons. And I’m so grateful to all the help that she has given me over the past few months that we’ve been working together. We have lessons twice a week […] for an hour. And I think that advances me more than anything, because I’m able to get really personalised technique.

Also in private lessons Olia makes  sure to have a plan every single day. And […], we go through the order of the barre, focusing on what I need to really work on. And there’s always homework at the end of the lesson too, that I try to always keep up with. And then we do some centre work and some allegro and pirouettes depending on the day and try to fit it all in.

We also have some great times where we catch up either at the beginning or end of the lesson, which I always enjoy getting to hear about how everything is going with her life and I really cherish having those times to spend working on my ballet. “

By now you’re probably noticing that my Private Ballet Sessions are not your typical ballet lesson.

HAVE A LOOK

I’m teaching you with the English style of ballet, but I’m not blindly following a syllabus. I’ve creating my own unique C.O.R.E. Framework which I’ve seen working like magic on dozens of students over the years.

Private Ballet Sessions with Olia are designed with care and attention to detail…

…but they’re not for everyone!

SEPHYRA'S THoUGHTS ON
OUR BaLLET LESSoNS

“I started learning dance at a very young age, to become a professional ballet dancer was my biggest dream. And then something happened in my life [and] for several years, I couldn’t take dance classes anymore, I had to train at home. When I resumed taking dance classes with a very good studio, I found myself in a situation where I was much older than the other girls in my classroom  and I was below their technical level. So I became very frustrated. I felt that I had too many students with me, I couldn’t catch up with them. My teacher wasn’t really focusing on me. I had specific problems; I had poor feet, I had poor muscle strength, difficulty to jump, to turn… And then I met Olia on Instagram.

THE BaLLET TEAcHER I nEEDED!

So this was my first experience with private lessons on Zoom. I had never even taken classes on Zoom before. And I was a little scared that it would be difficult because […] classes on Zoom are not the same as in person classes.

So I started anyway, and I found that Olia was just the teacher I needed. She focused on my own specific problems. She looked closely at what I was doing and she gave me specific advice. I had so many issues that other students didn’t have. But Olia really looked at them closely and she gave me specific exercises.

When she gives me the classes, she watches everything I do. She makes me repeat, repeat and repeat again, which is exactly what I need until it’s really good. So, I’m really thankful because she gave me the hope that I could become a better ballerina than I thought I could. So again, thank you so much Olia, and I really recommend her classes.”

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

Do you have questions? I have answers!

I hold two Diplomas in Dance Education (Imperial Classical Ballet and Modern Theatre Dance) by the Imperial Society of Teachers of Dancing (ISTD), based in London, UK.

I hold Masters’ degree in Dance which I completed at Bath Spa University, in Bath, UK 

I attend yearly seminars and workshops for dance teachers to keep my teaching skills up to date and further them.

I’ve been teaching dance to kids and adults since 2012. I have entered dozens of students in ballet, modern and tap exams and I’ve never had a student who failed or got a low score. In the last 2 years, I’ve dedicated all of my energy and time in teaching ballet to adults, because Ballet has always been my favourite and the adult ballet community is the best.

You don’t need any particular level to work with me. I’ve worked with students who took their very first lessons with me, others who came back after a long break and also, students who already had ballet experience. My lessons are a judgment free zone.

Absolutely. All payments are processed through Thrivecart, by Stripe, Apple Pay or Google Pay.

Wifi connection, a free ZOOM account, a computer or laptop with a webcam, a little bit of clear space and your normal ballet attire. If you don’t have any ballet clothes (i.e. leotard, tights, slippers), you can start wearing anything comfortable that allows you to move.

You can have a one-off session if you’re just looking for a booster to your training or you can arrange weekly Sessions. If you want high frequency though, make sure you book your Sessions ahead of time to secure your weekly spot(s), because they tend to fill up quickly. If you want more than one session but less often than once a week, you’ll have to purchase individual sessions ($77).

I work with students from all over the world and I’ll always do everything in my power to accommodate you.

However, in the rare occasion that we can’t find any time that works, I’ll refund you your money in full.

With the subscription, the sessions can not be provided less often than once a week. If you’d like lessons less frequently than that, you’ll have to buy single sessions.

If you want lessons more than once a week, you’re welcome to buy the subscription multiple times. For example, if you want lessons twice a week, you can purchase 2 subscriptions. If you have a specific plan in mind, please email me at [email protected] and I might be able to create a personalised package for you.
