Testimonials

I took adult ballet at the University of Iowa Youth Ballet and School of Dance in 2012 and now looking back at that wonderful experience I fully appreciate the quality of teaching I received. I remember the student teachers explaining in great detail each movement and giving us time to comprehend various steps before we moved on to new challenges. This pedagogical style allowed to me to fully understand how to move my body and gradually advance, which I feel is critical for the success of adult ballet learners. Thank you UIYB for giving me a great foundation in adult ballet! (read more...)
