Alessandra Masoero Ballet Classes

Why Ballet?

Ballet is a very enriching experience for mind, body and spirit and it trains them to work in harmony. While the music takes you into an emotional dimension, allowing you to explore your expressive side, the brain is trained to concentrate and take instructions to execute steps to music.

This improves your  concentration, memory and confidence. Rigorous ballet technique improves your posture and balance, making the muscles leaner, strengthening the feet and core muscles and building stamina, while making you more flexible and graceful.

For me, as a teacher, it is a joy to help people discover their abilities and realize their potential as dancers, whether they are beginners or  advanced students. My classes aim to inspire ballet lovers to experience for themselves the joy of dance in an encouraging and friendly  environment, with the invaluable inspiration of live piano music.

The Team

Alessandra Masoero

I was born and educated in Italy, where I trained in Ballet and Contemporary Dance at Teatro Nuovo di Torino with Carla Perotti, Renata Justino and Susanna Campo.

I performed and choreographed, participating in various Dance Festivals, including Vignale Danza and Torino Danza. In 1997, I moved to London and I continued my ballet training with Anna Du Boisson, Mark Silver and Roger Tully. I qualified as a professional ballet teacher at the Royal Academy of Dance, studying with Holly Price. Alongside my independent adult ballet classes in Notting Hill, I teach for the English National Ballet School and the Viviana Durante Company. I am also a guest teacher in various dance schools in Italy. I study Duncan Dance for my personal development, which is a great source of inspiration in my classes.

Working with excellent musicians brings to life the dancing experience and creates an exciting atmosphere in class. In my teaching, I give absolute priority to musicality, therefore I love working with a team of very experienced and inspiring musicians, such as Javier Ferrero, Igor Mukhortov, Graeme Thewlis, Morgan Hayes, Andy Wass and Ben Socrates.

During the year, I organise master classes with very experienced guest teachers to give my students the opportunity to explore different styles of teaching and choreographing. I also organise regular residences in Italy.


All ballet classes are one and a half hour long and are divided in 3 parts:
10 minutes Duncan inspired warm up to release tension
50 minutes thorough barre work
30 minutes centre practice

Cynthia Scoville,Art Education Officer

A ballet class with Alessandra is pure joy! Your only focus during her class is following her beautiful, sometimes challenging movements and choreography to the gorgeous live piano music - body and brain simultaneously engaged. You leave her class feeling exhilarated, physically and spiritually.

Judi Robison,Art Historian

Alessandra's classes are a delight. She is the most wonderful teacher who takes a real interest in each of her students and delights in their progress at whatever level. Her teaching is very professional and, with the excellent live music, her classes are both instructive and hugely enjoyable.
