NATALIE MCCALL

I teach ballet (technique and pointe) with a mentality of dancers getting out of their own way. I hope dancers come to class to practice and improve their artistry and to focus on finding consistency — building every time they step into the room

“Connect to your own unique instincts as a dancer and trust that you can push beyond what you think you are capable of.”
