Please Welcome New Ballet Instructor, James Strong

James Strong has 14 years of professional experience performing ballet and modern dance in diverse styles from a broad spectrum of choreographers. James strives to teach students proper classical technique while emphasizing musicality, personal expression and the performance aspect of the art form. His previous performance experience with San Francisco-based Smuin Ballet, Ballet San Jose Silicon Valley, and Koresh Dance Company has given him a rich and rewarding outlook in defining the connection between studio and stage. James brings this perspective to his classes, immersing his students in challenging technical combinations while inspiring them to perform not only on stage but also in the studio environment.

He will be teaching Ballet II this semester.
