 A Ballet Education is a blog dedicated to educate people about ballet. No, I am not just talking about going to the ballet, or when it is appropriate to applause. This is more about the happenings, the understandings and the reasonings behind ballet. Whether you are going to the ballet for the first time, or you are parent looking into ballet for your child… This is a great starting point. This isn’t just a gay man ranting and raving about people, but there will be a lot of that. A Ballet Education is truly about educating readers about things that actually matter in the “ballet world.”

I should introduce myself. My name is David (personal site), and I LOVE BALLET. No, I am not some crazed fan, or gay man with some over the top extravagant lifestyle. In fact, I do have some legitimacy here. I grew up dancing ballet, and not just at a some dolly dinkle studio in podunk America. I actually went through the entire ballet process, and become a professional ballet dancer. In addition, I have taught ballet, and other genres of dance on many different levels across the United States. Finally, my entire curriculum for teaching is based off Cassa Pancho’s All Things Black and Beautiful and the Balanchine Aesthetic. Though I understand, know and love other pedagogies, the Balanchine Aesthetic is just my personal favorite, and it makes sense for a lot of different reasons.
