Adult/Teen Summer Ballet Workshop with Kirsten Livingston
Choosing to work on technique is one of the most important things a dancer can do at any age. Technique improves the way a dancer looks and feels in class and onstage. This workshop with Kirsten Livingston will provide knowledge of the fundamentals of technique along with stretch, and strengthening exercises that will help improve your ability to execute that knowledge.
This workshop is a great opportunity to prepare beginners to transition into intermediate-level dancing, as well as for intermediate-level dancers to advance their progress by refining their foundational technique. Don’t miss your chance to work in depth with Kirsten! We tested for you and have seen visible progress.

Kirsten Livingston is a ballet instructor, a choreographer, a musical theater enthusiast, and (her favorite ‘job’ title) a Mother of three. She was born and raised in Santa Cruz, California, where she began training with Santa Cruz Ballet Theater at a young age, and went on to dance as a soloist and principal dancer with the company. Over the course of her ballet career, many of her proudest moments took place on the stages and in the studios of prestigious schools around the United States, including School of American Ballet, San Francisco Ballet, and Pacific Northwest Ballet.
Her teaching style was inherited from her own training with some of ballet’s most inspiring teachers. Since beginning her teaching career over 30 years ago, Kirsten has taught and choreographed at studios from Carmel and Santa Cruz, to the San Francisco Bay area. Nothing feeds her soul quite like the feeling of encouraging young women to be bold, strong, and confidence through ballet arts education.
Kirsten’s passion for teaching strong, technical dance goes beyond the ballet studio, by implementing curriculum that radiates a positive and uplifting message for children. She creates a studio atmosphere that encourages students to accomplish things they thought were impossible, and to grow increasingly confident with each drop of sweat, every cramped muscle, and best of all, every smile.
Mission Statement -
To provide strong technical training to aspiring dancers in a compassionate, positive learning environment, and to instill a love of dance while providing a space for joy and expression.
