The Ballet Method is the newest program from Anne Marie Kimmell and Katie Believeau, the co-founders of Ashburn Academy of Dance. Created for studios owners and instructors, most of whom have extensive dance training and backgrounds, The Ballet Method teaches former dancers to become better teachers, implementing or strengthening age- and skill-appropriate ballet technique at their studios.
Earlier this month Miss Anne Marie and Miss Katie began teaching the 2-day workshops which are held at either the Ashburn studio or a host studio location. The workshops each focus on a different age group or skill level, breaking down ballet technique basics and providing curriculum and program guidance. The program was created to address the growing need for enhanced teaching skills in ballet.
“We’re excited about this new opportunity to share our love of ballet with others,” said Anne Marie, “We’ve seen how quickly and confidently dance instructors can learn our ballet techniques and use them for success at their studio!”
