Doing Lisa's level 1 Teachers Training has been an extremely useful addition to my ballet teaching and a much appreciated tool in the classroom. Having the understanding to help students with various exercises depending on their individual needs means I can encourage students to reach their full potential with confidence in a safe and effective way.
