Testimonials Hear from Bianca's current and former students, peers and mentors.
"I had always considered trying ballet however I thought I would not be successful starting at 30 years old (especially considering I had never danced in my life!). I started my ballet journey with Bianca ~9 months ago and I can honestly say it is one of the best decisions I have made. I thoroughly enjoy the fun yet challenging classes. Bianca is not only a great instructor who wants all of her students to achieve their highest potential in dance, but she is also a kind human being who is happy to take time outside of class to provide individualized exercises/training for students. She also emphasizes the importance of both physical and mental health which is so important. She ensures a welcoming and supportive environment for everyone who steps foot into the studio. I consider myself lucky for finding this studio and look forward to continuing to study ballet with Bianca!" - Jenna O.
"Bianca provides an environment of inclusivity, safe learning, and the ability to grow in your dancing. Bianca helped me to return to ballet after many years, and was able to guide me in the reduction of injuries. Bianca also facilitates an in depth environment for adult beginners, which is not always present at other studios. If you’re looking to return to dance, or want to learn as an adult, this is the place for you." - Cynthia W.
"I have always had an appreciation for ballet, but as an adult male I never considered actually tying it out. I assumed ballet was something that if you don't start at a young age you'll never be able to do. Bianca welcomes all ages, both novices and experts to her classes." - Colton D.
"As a woman of an *ahem* certain age and weight, I was a bit concerned to start Ballet. Bianca was warm, welcoming and worked within my limitations. My fellow students were just a delight and the studio is a gift to Albuquerque. If you have any interest in Ballet or just need to improve your balance, this is the place to come!" - Dee S.
"If you ever had a childhood dream of doing ballet and were unable to for whatever reason, I highly recommend a class with Bianca. I never thought I could learn ballet at 33 and from the very basics. Bianca makes it easy. Also she has worked wonders for my posture, like no yoga class ever did!" - Maximo M.
"Bianca's classes have an attention to anatomy and physiology that I've never witnessed in a dance class before. She ensures that her dancers are safe, caring for their bodies, and will meet them wherever they are in their personal journey. I always leaver her class feeling more graceful and relaxed." - Erin F.
"I took Bianca Lily's Beginning Adult Ballet class. It was wonderful. I was a new ballet dancer at almost 50yo. I took the class with my 77 yo Mother. We loved it. I appreciated how Bianca really started from the beginning and very clearly explained how to do the ballet move and take care of and protect your body. That was important to me. I also liked learning about how to think of the moves in terms of what's going on inside your body, and how to visualize it and do it correctly. Everyone got to work at their own levels. On top of everything Bianca really cares, and is alot of fun." - Cheta B.
"I started ballet with Bianca’s intro series about one year ago, and I haven’t left this sweet, supportive, and non-judgmental community ever since. If you are looking for a studio to learn ballet for the first time or just a place to continue to dance among amazing people, I highly recommend considering Bianca Lily Ballet. Bianca has a very intelligent teaching style with a deep awareness of human movement and attention to safety. As a former athlete, these qualities stand out very strongly to me. I am constantly impressed with the ease with which she teaches everyone from absolute beginners to those who have been dancing their whole lives. Her instruction has also improved my performance as an aerialist, and she even helped me to choreograph a portion of my last performance. Bianca is generous with her time, attention, and knowledge. I plan to dance with her for years to come." - Samantha S.
"Bianca Lilly Ballet is a wonderful place to go for ballet! It is a very supportive environment regardless of your skill level age or experience!" - Carol B.
"I would give Bianca Lily Ballet 1000 stars if possible. Bianca teaches ballet in a way that UPLIFTS each person to be the BEST they can be in learning ballet. Not only is she an alignment queen in the world of ballet; she is an amazing business woman in Abq. holding high standards in politics and for animals rights in our community. I knew nothing about ballet when I began lessons and now I am a skilled dancer because I came to her studio. BEST LIFE CHANGING DECISION EVER ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️" - Jenny W.
"I enrolled in Bianca’s Intro to Ballet and just completed part 1. I danced as a child, but after a 15 year hiatus, I never would have thought that I could begin again at 33 years old. Her studio made my dream of dancing as an adult possible; and her classes have improved my posture, physique, and my self confidence. I drive two hours round trip, twice a week, to attend her classes. She is worth it!! She has the patience of a saint, and is always happy to stay after class and assist with tips to improve mobility and strength. I am so thankful I found her studio! <3" - E. Quan
"Bianca and her studio are welcoming, fun, and very accessible to folks who don’t have a dance background. She is extremely knowledgeable about how to care for our knees, back & other sensitive areas while dancing." - A. Porter
"This class is great for anyone- even just to understand movement better. The teacher is enthusiastic and motivating. It was fun and easy to catch on and understand." - Erika Dicker
"...such a thoughtful, insightful, receptive teacher, that the class is invaluable." -Gina Terrazas
"Outstanding ballet instruction for adults of all persuasions. I decided to start ballet as a means to improve my horseback riding (balance) and core strength. I have been delighted with the classes I've taken. Bianca is welcoming to all, approaches each student as an individual with skills and opportunities for growth, and is just plain old fun to be around. The other students I've met have also been very welcoming. The whole experience has exceeded my expectations. I have no dance experience, am in my later 60s, and would not fit in my high school clothes even if you used a crow bar. If you are thinking about starting ballet instruction, please do check out Bianca Lily Ballet. She is also great with people who have ballet skills, in case you were wondering." - Lori P.
"I've had so much fun learning ballet with Bianca this year! We all know 2020 wasn't a good year for anyone or anything, but taking ballet with Bianca was one of the bright spots for me. Bianca is an excellent teacher for adults and has expert-level knowledge of not only ballet, but also physiology and how to practice without causing injury. I really enjoy her teaching style and have learned so much while having a great time! I haven't taken ballet since I was 9, but that wasn't an issue at all. Worth noting that Bianca also handled the pandemic-related shutdowns and regulations beautifully - always communicating, reorganizing/reducing classes when possible to stay open, and even accepting reduced payments from those who couldn't continue to pay the full price. Ballet has really been one of the best parts of this crummy year, and I hope to continue til the cows come home!" - E. Hill
