Teachers

Peter has been teaching dance for over 20 years and has performed and choreographed in many productions both Classical and Contemporary. 

His Classical Ballet classes are based on the Russian Vaganova Technique.

This technique allows you to learn very difficult technical elements and improve your line. Your muscles will decrease in size and weight, yet increase in power. Your body will be full of energy, flexible, elastic and light. You will always be ready to Dance.

Peter's favourite line in ballet class is

"Think of nothing else!"
