Diane Page is devoted to teaching ballet to adults. For five years she has been a popular teacher of Adult Beginning Ballet at the Colorado Ballet Academy.
She is a student of Betty Oliphant, the controversial founder of the world-renowned Canadian National Ballet School and the mentor of Baryshnikov after he defected from the Soviet Union.
Diane's goal is to teach proper technique while making ballet fun. In her opinion, anything that is as much work as ballet has to be fun! She is the fourth generation of ballet dancer and teacher in her family. Her mother, Mona Frances, brought the Cecchetti system of teaching ballet to California. Diane is a graduate of the Canadian National Ballet School. She has a Master's Degree in French from the University of California at Irvine. In addition to ballet, her passions include downhill skiing and salsa dancing.
Diane has admired the teachers and students of DDC for years, and is excited about joining the teaching staff.
