Stella Abrera (ABT soloist) is a former student of our AD. Also, Nicola Curry (ABT) has taken class at our studio for several years whenever she came home from NBS. Our other AD was a Principal with Nevada Ballet Theatre for 10 years.

 

Afroballet01- my daughter had Steven Hyde for a teacher at her SI this year and really liked him! She says he really helped her in some key areas of her dancing. She thinks he's a great teacher! :speechless:

Amy'sMom- Yes,I agree that Steven is a great teacher!

 

I have only been taking class from him for a little while,and I feel like I have already improved so much!

 

He is probably one of the best teachers out there.

 

What SI did your daughter go to?

When I'm at home the teacher always talks about being in classes and rehearsals with Kirk Peterson and Royes Fernandez - her mom (Lelia Haller) taught them back in the day.

dancergirl39,

If I were your Mum, I'd be having you do a report on Maria Kowroski!!!

There is a lot of information out there about her, including where she began her training.......

Coco Gonzales - not famous yet, but she's an apprentice at [i think] ABT. I don't take there anymore, so I'm not real sure.
