About Us

My goal, above all, is to give EVERY dancer, and aspiring dancer, the opportunity to improve and grow. I aim to do this by making dance, flexibility, and related fitness training accessible anywhere, any time.

My students vary from adult beginners to pre-professional dancers and professional dancers. I have thousands of happy students that have been able to improve their technique and mobility from home.

We have busy working moms trying ballet for the first time as well as competitive dancers preparing for the next big event or performance.

All teachers are experts in their field and have hundreds if not, thousands of students worldwide.

This is a family-owned business (co-founded by professional ballet dancer Robbie Downey- that's me) that saw a need for accessible and affordable dance training. Not everyone can travel to the top schools and unfortunately, not everyone can be accepted to those schools. Travel and housing are expensive as are years of training at these facilities.

Take advantage of what I know and you can do it from the comfort of home. XO- Robbie
