Natalie makes ballet enjoyable and fun without losing any focus on the art and form of the dance. Always challenging, it is very rewarding to feel myself improve and advance. I would highly recommend it!
Praise for Rast Ballet
After ten years of not taking ballet my friend Simone brought me to Natalie Rast’s classes and it has been such a pleasure to study with a teacher who is so innovative, encouraging, compassionate and fun. Natalie has reignited my love for ballet.
Natalie is the best adult ballet teacher in town! I have been taking classes with Natalie for over ten years now, I got started at 41 and I have no plans of stopping. Natalie uses creative visualization to helps dancers understand our anatomy and improve our technique. I have taken ballet in New York and Chicago and Natalie’s emphasis on technique sets her apart from other teachers. Her goal is to bring forth the best in every one of her students.
Natalie’s lively classes push people to become the best dancers they can be. Whether the student is a beginner, a dancer who is returning to ballet after many years away, or a promising young ballerina, Natalie gears her comments to the specific needs of the individual student.
