I was able to gain a stronger foundation, cleaner technique, enhanced artistry, and an overall better understanding of my body.
I always left a session with Elina exhilarated and feeling accomplished but eager to keep working. She's incredibly caring and always pushes you to your fullest potential. I highly recommend Elina's course to anyone from a beginner to professional level!

Artistic Director of the Fairfax Ballet
Elina is a delightful artist, teacher and person. Our students of all levels felt so comfortable in her class and learned so much from basic corrections, artist nuances and how to expand how they approach class. She was able to provide our students a strong technical class that was still very danceable and fun for all. You’ll definitely enjoy taking her course!
How many lessons does the pre-recorded course have? The course has 10 modules, that include all the basics, details of the technique, demonstration and explanation of each step, stretches, 6 full ballet classes (each class is 60/80 min long and can be taken in 20 minute parts), warm up class, strength and stamina exercises, balance, coordination practice and much more!
How long do I have access to the pre-recorded course? You will have access to the course for one year.
Do I need a ballet barre to take your classes? Ballet barre is not necessary. All the classes are specifically designed for you to be able to take from home.
I've never taken ballet. What classes do you recommend? We recommend you start with our pre-recorded beginners course as it will give you all the ins and outs on ballet technique. The course is for the very beginners or for those who need clarity in how to execute each step. Everything is demonstrated and explained in detail.
