Testimonials from Parents
My daughter started training with Brooksher Ballet two years ago. Participating in their summer ProDance Experience and then enrolling full time in their daytime ballet academy, National Academy of Classical Ballet. Brooksher’s Ballet program training has given her the access to obtaining a serious path to becoming a professional dancer. Instruction encompasses the whole student in their program. They create an environment for each of their students that is both technically challenging, but also a nurturing and respectful atmosphere. Their program is designed for any level of dancer, from one that desires a professional career to a dancer who is looking for an envirement to thrive, be challenged, and achieve the success while being acknowledged for hard work. Enabled to create life skills for a future in any career path. We are extemely impressed with both the program and the committment Mr.Joshua and Mme. Natasha give to each of their students. We are forever thankful they have invested their time and support to our daughter. Not only has she improved as a dancer, she has also grown into a respectful young adult who understands the reward of dedication and commitment. We look forward to the 2016-2017 year with them, and being apart of this year’s Nutcracker again! (Which happens to be the best Nutcracker Ballet production in the East Valley)
Grateful ballet parent
My son has progressed and grown in ballet technique and kinesthetic awareness with the Brookshers. Most importantly, he is being respected and enriched as an emerging young artist. I have seen huge changes in his self-esteem, respect (for self and others), and understanding of the positive relationship between student and teacher/coach, since training with Mr. Josh and Mme. Natasha. For high level students or beginners, I recommend their classes, because everyone is valued and seen. Oh, and Mr. Josh is phenomenal with male students! They put on a fabulous Nutcracker in the winter and a great summer intensive/experience as well (with many world class master teachers/choreographers). This is the west coast hot spot for Vagonova training and east-valley is fortunate to have them in their backyard. Mr. Josh and Mme. Natasha are Tutu fabulous!
“I can’t thank Brooksher Ballet enough for the help and guidance they have given my son. He has found a home at Brooksher Ballet.”
“I didn’t know anything about dance and I was worried about deciding on a dance school. I am not anymore. I can’t see my kids learning from anyone else.”
“We tried lots of dance schools. Some the teachers claimed to be professionals but they just didn’t have the expertise of the faculty at Brooksher Ballet.”
“My daughter will probably never be a professional dancer but I won’t let her take classes with anyone else. She loves every minute of the challenge and is learning how to succeed at anything she sets her mind to. Thank you Brooksher Ballet.”
