I am very glad I found this studio. Donna is such a great teacher. Her classes are very informative and high quality. I have been coming here for a year now and I leave every class learning valuable things about ballet and my body. My posture has improve tremendously. This is not a fitness class although you will be training, it is learning the art of ballet that will strength your body and brain.

Donna's floor barre has been an excellent conditioning class! Her classes have helped me improve not only my ballet skills but also other forms of dance I do.

I took modern and improvisation class for a year at ballet espressivo, I improved a lot on my technics. Donna is a great teacher and dance coach. She taught me dance is about express yourself and sharing feelings. I also enjoyed the people I met through the class.

Donna is the best classical ballet teacher! At Ballet Espressivo's downtown Toronto studio, Donna teaches me every detail in order for me to improve my dancing skills and to avoid dance-related injuries. Since I had previously studied
for 8 years in my childhood, I started with the adult advancing beginner ballet class once a week. Now I am taking two classes a week - I LOVE IT!

Donna is an amazing teacher! I've tried several studios in Toronto and other places in Canada, she is by far the best teacher and I had the pleasure to learn from for 3 years. I truly recommend to start ballet with her, or to go to her studio and improve what you've learned.

You will build a solid foundation, something I've noticed is missing for a lot of students I've danced with in other studios. She pays attention to every student (and knows your strengths and weaknesses), corrects you (you really need that to improve) and pushes you to your best!

Donna has recently started providing students with an opportunity to take performance classes. I decided to take these classes to start building some confidence in myself and learn more about performing in general. Donna presents the choreography in such a way that is easy for us students to grasp but still challenging in the sense of coordinating with other dancers, spacing, etc. I enjoyed being able to perform the dance in front of an audience after putting in a lot of effort thanks to Donna! She prepares us dancers for the worst possible outcomes that can arise during the performance. I definitely recommend people to take performance classes!

I've been taking dance lessons with Donna for a year and a half now and the experience has been so amazing. Ballet is such a beautiful art form, it makes you feel so elegant and strong. Donna offers classes at many different times throughout the week to accommodate any schedule. She also offers modern dance classes which help students understand spatial relationships in dance. Her floor barre class is challenging but so rewarding and strengthening. Ballet has become such an important aspect of my health and I consider it a necessity. I wouldn't dance with any other studio than Ballet Espressivo. No other teacher is as dedicated to safety and integrity towards her students.

I first started trying out beginners’ ballet classes for adults at other dance studios but found the pace too rushed for people with little dance experience. I felt like I was just trying to imitate others’ movements but not really learning anything. Luckily, I found Donna’s ballet school over a year ago and have been studying with her since. She pays attention to each and every student and gives constructive feedback on our techniques. Studying with her has really helped me build on the foundational techniques and finding connection in my expression. It’s also helped me connecting more to the music that I play on the piano and appreciate the rare opportunities that I get to fully immerse myself in doing something so graceful. If you are serious about studying ballet well at any level I would highly recommend taking classes with Donna.

I am taking the Floor Barre class with Donna. Not only it is a comprehensive workout that helps with strength and elasticity, after missing class ONCE, I realized how much it helps me perform during dance classes! and how much better I feel during the week.

Highly recommend it to dancers and to anyone out there looking to have a beautiful posture and long-term health.

Best Adult Beginner Ballet classes in Toronto!

I have tried many studios and this is the only studio where I have been able to learn the ballet technique properly and improve. Donna is an amazing teacher who gives her full attention to each of her students and who takes the time to explain the moves. I highly recommend for anyone looking to learn ballet with no previous experience or anyone wanting to perfect their technique.

Have been learning Ballet here with Donna for about 2 years, I can feel the improvement with not only my techniques but also the positivity it brings to my posture and life in general. It’s not like any other dance school. Donna cares about every single student and the classes really focus on building a solid foundation and doing things right instead of doing things fast, which really really helps in a long term. I would highly recommend this to anyone!

As a result, Ballet Espressivo opens up a world of exciting possibilities for any student who has ever dreamed of learning ballet or performing in front of an audience... Find yourself with dance!

The thought of walking into a dance studio as an adult was intimidating. However, by the end of the first class at Ballet Espressivo, I knew that with Donna's guidance, this was something I would stick with. Donna's classes are well-constructed to help dance students develop their knowledge and abilities. She emphasizes not only good technique and proper development, but also the importance of self-care. This is not just about ballet, but seeing your body get stronger, your posture gets better and having fun while moving in ways you hadn't before. Donna is a wonderful teacher- it's not so much that she demands a lot of her students, but wants us to demand a lot of ourselves. Could not recommend this more.

If you have always dreamed of taking ballet, but for some reason never did, Ballet Espressivo is the perfect place. Donna Greenberg makes group lessons feel like private lessons, as she works with each individual to not only improve their ballet skills, but build a connection to their unique bodies. I also recommend trying the floor barre class.

I have been a student here for almost 2 years and truly enjoy Donna's classes. She has helped me work through foot issues I've had for years and breaks down technique so that we can all learn how to work with the body we've got. She is an inspiration and as such, I am encouraged to strive for the best. Thank you, Donna!
