She is herself a great dancer who is passionate about ballet and imparts that to her students. I did not learn to dance as a child. I have been learning for about 15 months. I love it! I didn’t think as a mature woman I could learn, but it’s intensive, although I do it once or twice a week, and I’ve learnt a lot! My daughter’s been learning since she was about 5. She’s learnt from Anastasia for the past few years and doing well.
Anastasia is so particular about doing things properly, using the right muscles the right way, we’ve never had injuries. And it’s hard but enjoyable and rewarding work! Anastasia has also given her the chance to do an extension class for the very serious students, which has let her develop her skills further. They have performing experience through eisteddfods, exams and end of year concert.”
Ms Anastasia has shared her great knowledge during the workshop. After the workshop, students felt that they have better understanding and improved in the following area:- – posture – foot work – pointe The students would love to join the workshop again in future. Ms Anastasia is a very nice teacher who is willing to share her knowledge and experience with students.”
I have seen both myself and other students improve rapidly as a result of her teaching methods. I have no hesitation in recommending Anastasia as she is both skilled at teaching large classes and giving private lessons. Ultimately, she cares for her students and puts a lot of energy into every class. She is an inspiration to both myself and other young dancers.
She is one of those rare individuals that can teach by example and instills confidence in her students. In short, her classes have changed my life and I am still forever grateful for having the opportunity to attend them.”
Miss Anastasia has the sharpist eyes that can spot your weakness straight away and see your strength as well. She will patiently correct you and always encourage you. She never yells but she is firm. She will make you repeat the same variation moves over and over until she is happy with it. And she even wear her points to demonstrate the moves, and eventhough she hasn’t been dancing for sometime, but the quality of a Bolshoi ballerina still amazes me.
The most valuable thing that my daughter got from her is not only the Vaganova techniques but the artistry of performance – “the juice” she called. She knows every variation thoroughly and knows how to dance to make the character alive. Miss Anastasia has so much knowledge and experience of ballet dance. She has inspired my daughter greatly. She is a caring teacher. She gave my daughter lots of advices and support as well as correcting my daughter’s wrong thoughts too. What more can you ask for from a teacher!
Anastasia takes the time to know every student personally and teaches them how to dance with their strengths and weaknesses in mind. Anastasia is always thinking of how she can improve and better inform her students and introduces a number of teaching platforms. I was the fittest, happiest and most talented dancer whilst dancing with Anastasia. Anastasia took the time to ensure each student felt welcome. Some of my best friends come from her classes, due to the open and friendly environment Anastasia engendered. I know all the other girls miss her terribly too :(.
I have danced for over five years now, mainly in Sydney, but also classes in London and New York. I am still yet to find another teacher as great, talent and marvellous as Anastasia. Anastasia is a gift to ballet!
