Hi ! I am Caroline Lecoupé-Grainville, certified and experienced ballet teacher in Paris and its western area.
I hold the State Diploma of Classical Dance Teacher and a Master of Science in Management. I have been teaching dance since 2011 to amateur students of all levels, from complete beginners to advanced.
Dancing makes you feel alive. In a caring and disciplined environment I will share this passion with you with kindness and your best interest at heart. The tradition of French ballet is the basis of my courses and is adapted to all levels of students. I divide my teaching between technique and artistic expression. Through detailed demonstrations and analogy, my students can achieve a real understanding of the French Ballet style as well as a sense of autonomy in their gestures.
All my classes at La-Celle-Saint-Cloud can be bilingual, the wednesday classes already are. Whether you are an expat or a short term visitor, you are welcome for a free trial class.

Visiting Paris? Welcome! Why not enjoy a private ballet class in a nice studio, close to touristic attactions? I will take care of the studio renting, either in the Trocadero sector, or near the Opera Garnier.
