Teaching Testimonials

“I love Ginger’s class! I take her class 4 times/week and have been since April. This is a smart, well-thought-out, thorough class that gets me on my leg and prepares me to dance! Ginger is fun, supportive and engaging. She  has a wealth of knowledge about ballet technique and she gives corrections in a way that is easy to understand and assimilate. Ginger is helping me get through this incredibly difficult time and I know that I will come out of this a better dancer because of her.”

“If you’re not in Gingers class, you’re not on your leg! Even in a living room, pandemic, laundry rack as a barre situation, I always feel like I’m ready to do a three act ballet at the end of Gingers class. Even if I woke up stiff and in pain. How she manages to cater to students of all levels and abilities is a gift rarely found, and even through a screen, she is able to give corrections that really work! This class is everything you need to get your day going in the right direction and get in the right frame of mind. So come get on your leg in Gingers class!”

“In this time of Covid pandemic and isolation, it has been wonderful to be able to take ballet class with Ginger Thatcher, teacher, choreographer, artist.  It has really made this unbearable situation way more bearable!  Ginger’s classes are excellent and fun and occasionally poignant as we steer through these trying times.  It is great to be able to keep up with our dancing as madness reigns around us, I highly recommend class with Ginger”.

“I started taking Ginger’s ballet classes on ZOOM from the very beginning of the stay-at-home orders, and they have been a saving grace. Her classes provide structure and joy to an uncertain and unsettling time. I always look forward to her class as an opportunity to escape, enjoy beautiful music, and dance! Staying home has made exercise all the more important and I am so grateful for the opportunity to learn from and dance with Ginger. Thank you so much!”

“At the beginning of the quarantine, a good friend recommended Ginger’s ballet classes. I came to her online class via zoom. I was immediately hooked! I would always leave class feeling like I could jump into pretty much any rehearsal. She always has a wonderful sense of humor when she teaches, and would take the time to give personal corrections during the class. The class was easy to follow, which is important over zoom. I thank Ginger a lot for helping me stay in shape during the pandemic, and her warm and cheerful spirit made me feel totally uplifted!”

“I first started taking class with Ginger while recovering from my first serious ankle injury. She got me back on my feet and taught me how to work smarter and more confidently.

A year ago I would never have imagined taking ballet classes online, but Ginger’s teaching and support have been essential to staying physically and mentally in shape during this particularly uncertain year. 

In person or online, I never feel like Ginger’s class is just part of a maintenance routine—each class brings new inspiration and insight into how to continue developing as an athlete, artist and person.”

“Ginger began organizing her virtual classes before most formal ballet institutions in New York offered them, and hers remain uniquely intimate and innovative. Amazingly, she manages to straddle three levels in her classes. They manage to work even for a dance Goldilocks like myself!”

“Ginger has always been an excellent teacher in the classroom–emphasizing efficiency of placement combined with an easy musicality.  Now she brings that talent into your home with an eye toward giving the same quality of instruction in your limited space.  You can still get the workout you desire without worrying about ballet combinations that don’t fit in the dance space you have and her class times are convenient too.”
