How it works
- You will receive a welcome email with instructions and with a link to a form to fill out. The link can also be found inside the course curriculum area on a document.
- Submit a 3-5 minute video of barre, center work, a variation or contemporary piece.
- Ms Arsen will thoroughly review the video and fill out the shared feedback form in google docs (this takes approximately 20-40 minutes).
- You will schedule a personal Skype or Google Hangout meeting to go over the feedback once you see it has been updated/completed.
- Please allow 10-14 days for feedback to be complete.
- Please schedule your online consultation within 30 days of receiving your feedback form so the content is still fresh in her mind.
You may get feedback on one or both of the categories below depending on which pricing plan you choose. For feedback on both Technique and Artistry your session time is extended from 15 to 20 minutes per session. Price reflects additional personal time to critique both areas on the feedback form as well.
Based on her expert and artistic opinion, Mr Arsen will focus more on those skills that need more attention within each category.
- Turn Out
- Foot Work
- Port de Bras
- Upper Body
- Arm Position
- You get ALL the attention. Arsen can hone in on your individual needs.
- You can talk to him about your goals and he can help you develop emotionally as a dancer.

- Arsen will make you feel comfortable but still push you.

"We tried many ballet classes/studios trying to find the right fit for my 6yo daughter. Too many to count. Arsen is the first instructor who actually challenged my daughter and treated her like she was capable of more than even she or I thought. He gives tons of personal attention and corrections to every student. He is strict and disciplined with the kids but is still kind and funny and my daughter just adores him. All of the students and families have been welcoming and we feel like we are a part of a wonderful ballet family that my daughter can grow up in. I trust Arsen 100% with my daughter’s dance future. If your child has a passion for dance and you want the best technical training, I don’t believe there is a better choice in Los Angeles than Dance Channel TV Ballet Academy!"

"Exceptionalism truly defines and drives Arsen Serobian at Dance Channel TV Ballet Academy. It is rare to find a professional ballet artist and mentor, who has mastered Vaganova ballet theory/method, and now dedicates his tireless passion to the proper development of his students. Dance Channel TV Ballet Academy offers serious students a once in a lifetime opportunity to excel far beyond the resources provided by the world's most prestigious ballet academies"
