 Ballet After School

Joanna Milewska
I have been working as a children dance instructor for the last 15 years. Dancing has been my passion since I was six and that is the reason why through the years I have been exploring different forms of dance from classical ballet, jazz dancing, contemporary, salsa and argentinian tango.
I find teaching children to be very rewarding. I am often involved in arranging showcases so parents are able to see what their children have created and learnt.
