Hee Ra on Teaching Ballet:
My teaching approach is built upon creativity and honesty. Maintaining respect for each student and professional is crucial. I strive to allow an independence and freedom for dancers, while presenting them with challenging material and exercises that allow them to improve as artists.
As a choreographer and teacher, I am dedicated to revealing each dancer’s individual voice. While it is important to teach movements and technique, it is also necessary to support young dancers as they rediscover why they dance.
