“Elite Classical Coaching has provided me with an incredible basis of knowledge and technique going into my pre-professional training at an international school. Not only has the training and coaching allowed me to develop as a dancer, but the school is truly a family where the students are each individually mentored. ECC has opened so many doors and provided me with many amazing opportunities that I could have never imagined otherwise. I’m eternally grateful for their support and contribution to my ballet career.”

"I've found a wonderful home at Elite Classical Coaching and with Miss Cat. Over the last few years under her direction as well as having the opportunity to work with great male teachers like Jason Ambrose, Marcelo Gomes, Allan Kinzie and others, I've grown more than I could have imagined in the last few years. ECC has enabled me to compete all over the US and as a result I have been presented with amazing opportunities to train and dance at so many reputable schools. I am so grateful for my time with Miss Cat and the ECC team!"

"I chose to walk a different dance path in the late summer of 2017 as my passion for ballet progressed. I wanted a strong technical foundation, therefore I started training with Mrs Catherine at Elite Classical Coaching. The training I have received has been nothing short of amazing and exactly what I am needing for my serious, long-term dance endeavors. I have competed in two competitions under ECC, the first being only 2 1/2 months after starting with ECC and I received 4th place at WBAC. Then after training even harder than ever for a couple more months, I was the Hope Award recipient at my first YAGP competition in Dallas 2018! It was more than I ever could have imagined and she guided me every step of the way! I am currently working towards the NYC YAGP finals and looking forward to future competitions and performances and many more hours in the studio."
