Bunmom, I don't understand.....you answered your own question. Were you meaning that your DD is enrolled, and did your DD post on your account?

I'm not sure if this is the right thread to be posting this is, but I was wondering if anyone had any insight on private teachers in NYC. I know a few dancers who take weekly or daily privates with people such as Fabric Herrault, but it's hard to find any information on this topic. Any information would be appreciated!

There are so very many teachers who teach private lessons in NYC on a regular basis. I think it is hard to jump into a private lesson without having an idea of what the teacher is like or what the student is like. It seems to me that these connections begin through classes at SIs, open classes and normal ballet school classes. Is there something specific you are looking for? A specific style of dance? Coaching? 

And Fabrice Herrault seems to be the only I can think of off-hand who works this way with daily private/semi-privates.

Kat Wildish coaches every Sunday, I think. Her website has details. My experience (as an adult student) is that she is an extraordinary teacher, who has a very physical, but anatomically knowledgeable & safe, way of really pushing her students.

Erin Forrest, former teacher at Ellison and Kirov, will be starting her own academy this fall.  It is the Forrest Academy of Ballet.  Not sure exactly which part of the city it will be in, but should be very interesting!

Erin Forrest is a strong teacher.  DD took class from her in the summer at Ellison 2014.  She is Vaganova.

Reading about Erin Forrest's plans reminds me of another small NYC school to add to the list- Premiere Division run by Nadege Hottier.

Eva Janiszewski, who had recently started Eva Janiszewski Ballet, is joining up with Erin Forrest and just announced she will be on staff there. She was trained by Gelsey Kirkland. She was offering personalized training and privates.

I am very interested in Valentina Kozlova Dance Conservatory of New York and Forrest Academy of Ballet New York!  If anyone had experience at either of these schools let me know!

Hi anyaaaa, it seems as if you've been trying a great deal to find the right school. I highly recommend making a list of schools of interests and calling each one for info. If possible, visit each school and see if you can even do a trial class or take a private lesson (I know Forrest Academy offers privates). It will help you in your search. All the best!
