GRETCHEN EVANS BALLET SCHOOL OVERVIEW

The Gretchen Evans Technique
Gretchen Evans, renowned ballet teacher, has been offering ballet classes to all ages and skill levels for years in a positive and fun learning environment. The school emphasizes a strong classical technique. Classes are customized to the student's age, technical aptitude, commitment, and physical development.  Similar to classical French ballet, classes are taught to live piano accompaniment where students are taught to dance the music not to the music.  As on a stage, there are no mirrors in the classroom so students learn to feel how they look.
