Your child will benefit from the intimate familiarity with dancing that comes with over 35 years of experience, when they work with En Pointe Danse founder and owner Gail Friedberg.
Miss Gail’s career began in Louisville, KY, where she performed with the Fleet Street Contemporary Dance Company and taught ballet, jazz, and tap. After moving to Ohio in 1987, Miss Gail continued her teaching career and joined the Repertory Project in Cleveland. For the last 15 years, she has put all of her creative energy into making sure the students at En Pointe Danse thrive. She teaches a number of classes for all ages, including ballet, pointe, tap, and modern, and choreographs an original ballet for the students to perform each year. The school attracts a loyal following of students, many of whom begin in first grade and continue through high school.
Give your children the opportunity to work with a graduate of the Academy of the Washington School of Ballet in Washington DC, under the direction of Mary Day. At the University of Cincinnati CCM, Miss Jean has studied ballet with David McLain and Oleg Sabline, and modern with James Truitte. She has performed at the Kennedy Center and became a member of the Vzorow Rhythm Ballet in Maryland. Miss Jean has taught Russian technique ballet classes, competitive gymnastics, and fitness classes before moving to northeast Ohio in 1992. Since then, she has taught ballet at Western Reserve Gymnastics and Dance. Now Miss Jean focuses on teaching ballet at En Pointe Danse, and she assists with the production of the spring programs. She also teaches beginner adult ballet at Quirk Cultural Center.
