Is everything beautiful at the ballet? The traditional art form, pioneered centuries ago, is going through growing pains as it tries to recapture the American imagination, beyond tutus and pointe shoes. In this two-hour course, we'll trace ballet's voyage to America, how it's slowly started to adapt for contemporary audiences, and what it's doing now to stay relevant.



    In 2017, I graduated magna cum laude and phi beta kappa from Columbia University as a Hispanic Studies major. Since then, I've worked full-time as a journalist, while also tutoring talented students to ensure they reach their potential. I tutor Spanish, English, history, and writing skills, and would love to help students over the summer who are working on their college applications. Usually, I find that students are hardworking, curious, and ready to learn — they just need a little guidance. That's why I'm here.
