One of the unique aspects of Pofahl Studios is the opportunity for students to study with internationally recognized professional dancers.   Julia Ponomarova teachers advanced repertoire,  Pt. V/VI and ballet IV/V.   Walter Angelini and Ulises Daza teach adult ballet.  Andre Valladon teaches partnering.

There isn't another school in the state that offers a partnering class for students with professional male ballet dancers as partners.  This is an amazing opportunity for our students.


And yet another unique opportunity, students from the school may be selected to perform and tour with the professional company.     Above, Theresa Hanson elevated to soloist in 2013 in a solo toured 2013.  Ms. Hanson has been featured in Eternal Light, Rite of Spring, Bolero and A Night In the Gardens of Spain among other works.
