A LITTLE ABOUT ME
Hello, I am Jennifer Dournaux, a classically trained ballet dancer with years of experience in teaching ballet, Pilates, History of Ballet, and specialty classes inspired by dance.
I love ballet! I make it my work to teach all body types how to express themselves through strength and grace utilizing knowledge of the human anatomy, traditional forms of movement, and my own sense of creativity. In all of my ballet classes, I focus a great deal on proper technique as well as artistry. Add to this my experience as a Humanities professor (art and dance history) and my love for people, and you have a teacher who is not only effective but fun.
Yes, I will meet you at the barre, or on the mat, or at the reformer, or even on the beach! Whatever and wherever we feel is the best formula for you! Whether you would like to join a group class, attend a workshop, or schedule a private session, I am delighted to help you accomplish your movement goals.
“We learn by practice. Whether it means to learn to dance by practicing dancing or to learn to live by practicing living, the principles are the same. One becomes in some area an athlete of God.” -Martha Graham
