“THIS BALLERINA MADE HER CHILDHOOD DREAM JOB A REALITY”

-The Every Girl

Do you feel overwhelmed by the variety of video requirements that different programs request? Are you concerned about how you will show your best in your home studio (or kitchen!)? Are you unclear on what steps will help show what the schools want to see? Are you unable to get past certain hurdles in your technique, your stage presence and confidence?

Now imagine waking each morning knowing you are on track to your goals! Picture yourself with new techniques to face the fears that make you pull back. Imagine a new understanding of self discipline helping you to leap over the hurdles that have stood in your way. Imagine sending off your audition materials & auditioning live knowing you showed your best.

ADMITTANCE INTO THE WORKSHOP IS BY INTERVIEW ONLY

My workshop is designed for serious ballet dancers pushing to get to the next level; dancers looking to conquer their fears and technical roadblocks; dancers hungry to work on not only their technique but also stage presence, self talk and self discipline.

Is that you? Let’s talk! I only admit dancers into my program whom I feel are ready for the course and who will receive lasting benefits to serve them throughout their entire career. If you are interested in joining my tight-knit group of dancers, please email me to schedule a video call together!

“…THERESA FARRELL HAD INVITED ME FOR AN EXCLUSIVE PEEK INTO THE AUDITION PROCESS. THE DANCERS WOULD PROGRESS (OR NOT) FROM BARRE WORK TO CENTER FLOOR COMBINATIONS TO THE INTERVIEW STAGE. … FARRELL SCRUTINIZED THE DANCERS’ FEET, LEG EXTENSION, MUSICALITY, AND SPEED, AMONG OTHER QUALITIES. THE TENSION IN THE ROOM WAS PALPABLE AS THE HOURS TICKED BY.”
