What our customers and clients have to say about us.

“I want to thank you for the great platform you are providing. I have been working with it for some time now and it helps me a lot. Foremost, I want to thank you for providing high quality information and training to everyone no matter what their background is. As an adult ballet student, I appreciate this very much. I have never been to a ballet school. I took evening classes at an adult education centre prior to the pandemic.
The variety of the different content in each Class is wonderful. The opportunity to change the speed of the videos is helpful. For the time being I decided to work with Xander’s and Valentino’s Masterclasses -it’s still work in progress. The constant guidance with the voice is a huge help.
I like how Xander describes what you are actually aiming for when you do a certain exercise, e.g., mentioning it’s not the height of the working leg that matters but the concentration on the supporting leg. No one mentioned that before. The combinations in the class are interesting and challenging.
Valentino’s concentration on balances and weight changes is very helpful. I tend to struggle with that a lot. The class provides the perfect opportunity to work on it. He also mentions a lot of tips I never heard of before.
I really love the Repertoire Classes. I have been looking for something like this for ages. It is great joy to watch and learn from them.”

“Classes: I’ve been using them to train and I absolutely love them, especially the more personable ones. Honestly, I’ve watched your video (Xander’s) the most! Your authenticity, humanity, and artistry come through in your teaching, which is so motivating. It makes a huge difference to us regular folk when you say those little encouraging things on the screen (“great job!”). Technique tips, like using your first arm for power and second arm for balance in an arabesque turn, have also made an immediate difference to me. All this is to say you’re a fantastic teacher! I’ve also loved Vadim’s class (also very encouraging and great aura) and Maria Khoreva’s class (not only is she absolutely charming, but the La Bayadère music is great).”

“We have been loving your platform and it is one of the best and most comprehensive ones on offer. We love all of the artist’s interviews and sharing of their paths and experiences. Usually it is hard to have all these interviews of individual artists from different companies in one place. Also we love the diversity of the ballet and technique classes.”

“Balletclass.com offers elegant and effective classes, among the best I have taken anywhere, The conditioning classes are focused and challenging, and the extraordinary choice ballet classes are an athletic and artistic dream not possible without this flawless model. Bravo to Mr, Parish.”

“I’m a 33 year old who has a spinal injury (C4 disc) from a major accident when I was 18 and I was finally allowed to try ballet when I was 31.
It provided incredible escapism and although I do struggle with the positions (putting the names to the “shapes” if that makes sense,) I actually have no fear when it comes to the harder airborne moves, ironic given some very serious injuries from the past.
I think the fact that I always have hope means I will continue to derive great pleasure from the jumps!
I have LOVED your platform, it is literally the most perfect provision, when I watch the lessons (particularly the pdd with two people chatting) you feel really engaged, involved and motivated! Huge thanks!”

“I have enjoyed the balletclass.com platform, particularly the mind and body classes, some of which I have taken from time to time. I have also enjoyed watching the repertoire classes: the explanations and the step-by-step analysis have provided a unique insight into the variations – and provide the opportunity to admire once more the skills and technique of the dancers.
I am happy that the content of the platform is growing with more and varied classes (e.g. make-up class, pointe shoe preparation) by a wide range of dancers.”

“The masterclass from Vadim Muntagirov was amazing and l look forward to seeing some of the other dancers as well. I appreciate Vadim’s amazing technique and exceptional communication in all his masterclasses.”

“Your website is perfect, nice colours, pleasant to browse. Bring in new dancers regularly is important and very nice. The lessons are of great quality – I especially followed the Pilates, the teacher is top.”

“Thank you for creating this platform and bringing together all these incredible dancers to teach! Most of the dancers are from companies I’m not super familiar with and haven’t even seen perform, so I definitely wouldn’t ever have had an opportunity to learn from them without this website.”
Valetina Z (via website testimonial form)
“I’ve been taking classes with other websites, but balletclass.com truly is a different experience. I travel a lot for business and I can even exercise in my hotel rooms,. adapting the class to my space. I love the different dancers, all big names, yet teaching calmly and clearly, even for people like me, not professional dancers! thanks for brighting my days up.”
Hannah Martin, 19, Apprentice at Birmingham Royal Ballet
“I have been using the platform for the last few days and I have to say it is absolutely fantastic! It’s so professional and the site is super easy to use. The teachers and names you have on here are incredible and I can’t wait to do even more of the classes.”

“Today, I started balletclass.com🤩💛I am excited to take classes!! Now, I will tell you my thoughts.
Today I watched Melissa Hamilton’s interview, her ABS & CORE WORKOUT, and Maraya Magri Princess Florine Solo.
I was very moved by her interview😍 Her effort and feeling for ballet is strong and sincere. I will watch it at least 3 times!!
🤸🏼♀️ABS & CORE WORKOUT
It is very helpful for me. Taking the class, I became aware of the body axis and I could do beautiful passé!!
🩰PRINCESS FLORINE SOLO
I understand how to express Florine’s feelings with dance! I can make use of these tips!
Overall, their lectures are in simple English and I can understand! Also, descriptions about each video is helpful for me!!”

“Sarah Kundi’s class is phenomenal! It feels like she is actually next to in real life and her nurturing and friendly approach is so reassuring!
It is the first time I have properly understood the positions and that is all thanks to her very clear and helpful guidance.
I feel much more confident and I am going to watch it on repeat to help reinforce so huge thanks. 🙏🙏🙏”
