“The philosophy of my teaching is in a certain way because I was taught that way; it is not in some other way because I was instructed thusly as well…”

 “If it was up to me, I would call both sides the working side, but then I would have wrongfully eliminated en dehors and en dedans turns!”

 “The only habit that I care about is the ultimate one; the habit of being coördinated.”

 “Less can be more only when you are comparing two different qualities.  Any other time, less is less and more is more!”

 “We want to execute complicated and difficult movements easily, and that is why we work each and every day so hard!”

 “Artistry is going beyond technique.”

 “Graceful, Confident and Happy!”


I am waiting for your questions…
