MENTORING – The dance world can be complicated and harsh; if you’d like advice on training to become a professional classical dancer or are unsure how best to proceed as a job seeking graduate, first of all, have a look at my blog, Ballet Industry Advice, as there’s lots of helpful information on there and, if you want further consultation, or someone to talk to, contact me for a mentoring session.  These are available for dancers and/ or their parents and will help you understand your choices during training and the transition into a career.  These sessions are available via skype or face-to-face, depending on location.

PRIVATE MASTERCLASSES – If you’d like coaching to perfect your technique or to work on classical and/ or contemporary variations for ballet competitions, then please get in touch.  Choreography for contemporary pieces is also available. For ballet students aged 8 and above.

GROUP MASTERCLASSES – If you are a dance school and would like your students to experience the technical excellence of Russian classical ballet training, then please get in touch.  Students will take part in ballet class with barre and centre work, ballet-stretching and rep.  Group masterclasses are for students aged 8 and above.

These are the current dates where you can access my masterclasses in the UK:

29th October 2019 – Kings Dance Kamp, Matlock


I find it greatly rewarding to see young people improve as a result of applying the discipline and rigour of the Russian method of training when I’m coaching them. It’s a technique that builds a dancer’s capability like no other.

My girls love Tala’s masterclasses! They have received excellent advice and been inspired to practice more often. An excellent enhancement to my daughters’ dance training July 2017.

Super workshop thank you! She wanted to attend all over again! Totally inspired. Thank you for sharing your talent – August 2019

Thank you, Tala ,Amelie said she learned lots in your masterclass and was very proud to receive a certificate – August 2019.

Elizabeth loved it and hasn’t stopped talking about what she has learned. Thank you Tala, we hope she can see you again soon – July 2019.

Tala came to my studios to teach my advanced Senior Associates and all we can say is WOW! As an inspirational professional ballerina Tala then surpasses herself by being a superb teacher. She gave my students a very clear insight into training in the professional world and they clung to her every word, demo and correction. Incredibly well organised from the moment we were able to plan the session. I cannot praise Tala and Sara enough. Book a session as soon as you can!!! July 2017.

Lexi had a brilliant day 2. Thanks so much. We have had lots of demos at home 🙂 July 2019.
