  1. Hello Friends, I thought some of you might be interested in finding out about the personal career coaching programs I offer for dancers at all stages of their careers. Working at the highest level within the dance world has afforded me the pleasure of helping countless dancers to confidently and successfully manage their careers. I have also worked with numerous well-trained, talented dancers who were very good at what they were good at; namely dancing, but woefully under-prepared for coping with the many tough demands of the profession. Enjoying a fulfilling career in the world of dance requires nous, confidence, motivation and resilience, so it is imperative to be well prepared from the outset—and with the right support it is possible to maximise your potential for success. My background is as principal dancer, international guest teacher and former Artistic Director of English National Ballet and the Royal New Zealand Ballet. I have danced with, amongst others, the Royal Swedish Ballet, English National Ballet, Netherlands Dance Theatre and Rambert Dance Company. Now as a coach, with a lifetime’s experience of the dance world, I work independently from dance schools and companies to offer the objective insights and support that institutions (or families) may not be able to provide. To find our how I can help you increase your chances of having a fulfilling career visit my website or drop me an email to book a free confidential conversation. As a special service I also offer consultations with parents to ballet students. Website: www.matzskoog.com Email: matz.skoog@gmail.com
  2. Hi everyone, I hope the mods don't mind me posting this but having had quite a few requests for private coaching/'physio' assessments etc I am doing two days of sessions in May half term, in Warwick. Sessions can be used to work on specific movements (eg pirouettes or leaps), to work on ballet technique, for strength & conditioning or for injury rehabilitation. I can also offer pre-audition assessments with some take-home help on how to work on weaknesses. Sessions can be shared by up to 3 students but can only be booked by 1 person. Sessions are booked on a first-come, first-served basis but if the session you want is booked you can add your name to a waiting list. To book go to https://goteamup.com/p/1110966-warwick-school-of-dance/ Select “private coaching sessions” or go to the calendar/schedule and select your preferred date.
  3. Hi, I am new here but I have been doing ballet as an adult for more than 10 years on and off. I am just wondering if there are any intermediate semi-private ballet class in Birmingham I can join? Or anyone around Birmingham would like to share a two hours private ballet class with me? Being able to share would make the class much more affordable while still benefiting from individual attention!! I would really want to get much better but feel i am getting loss in large group classes. anyone interested, please PM me
  4. COACHING for COACHES! A rare opportunity to see world class coaching using dancers from the Royal Ballet Company. For all teachers, repetiteurs and dancers considering their next career move - this is a very special day with Maina Gielgud at Ballet Boost on Sept 1st 2017. It involves the whole day -watching a ballet class and then observing Maina teach mime and stage craft. After lunch Teo Dubreuil and Anna Rose O'Sullivan from RB Company will arrive to be 'coached' in various solos and we are hoping to share crucial elements that are necessary when coaching. Its so very different to delivering a class and will be invaluable for those working on YAGP, Prix de Lausanne or even festival solos. This is an interactive workshop! If you are interested please fill in the attached form or email me info@balletboost.com. It should be an enlightening day as Maina coaches dancers around the world!! The dancers attending the Back to Ballet course from aug 29th will be lucky enough to watch the afternoon rehearsal at no extra cost having finished the course after the mime class! Full details available on www.balletboost.com on the 'other courses' page or at www.mainagielgud.com. Cost is £70 for the afternoon and can be as interactive as necessary. £85 to observe the entire day from 11am with students attending their technique class (taught by Emma Northmore) followed by mime taught by Maina.

  5. Just saw some dancers started sharing on social media about this new summer coaching programme. Sounds very good! “Prague Ballet Intensive (PBI) provides a high quality pre-professional and professional international ballet coaching program, coached by the experienced principal dancers, teachers and choreographers, from the top European, Russian and North American ballet companies. PBI participants will spend 11 working days and over 80 intensive hours of gyrokinesis, ballet classes, variations, pas de deux and contemporary concluded with yoga class each evening. PBI is specially created for (pre)professional and professional dancers aged 17 – 35 years old. A full schedule of training for all participants ensures individual attention and intensive training for every participant. You will receive corrections and coaching to raise your technique and artistry to the next level and prepare you for the world stage of ballet performances. By the end of PBI pas de deux and variations will be filmed (upon request) and later on given to our attendees for the purpose of future auditions or self-critique. Our goal is to spend an even amount of time with each attendee during all our classes, therefore places in our course will be LIMITED. We are also excited to introduce to you Marianna Khidirova as our pianist for PBI 2017. Join us this summer and be prepared work with a passionate team.. we look forward to meeting you! Jiří Jelínek and PBI Team” http://www.pragueballetintensive.com/
