In our December issue, we hear what professional dancers have to say about their go-to teachers.
Birmingham Royal Ballet
“I loved learning from Marilyn ‘Marny’ Trounson at Zohar School of Dance. Her class was always well-structured: We’d have the same combinations for two weeks and then change them. That way, I’d work on something consistently and then move onto new things, and she guided us through that. It’d sometimes be hard waking up to go to ballet in the morning, but as soon as you walked into the bright studio and started her warm-ups, it was refreshing and wonderful. I go back to take her classes whenever I can.”
