Renée Meyer teaches most Ballet Mobile classes, integrating healing strategies into her lessons. A professional dancer, she learned from Ballet Russes Roman Jasinski and Moscelyne Larkin, Robert Joffrey and his faculty, and "Papa" Ted Shawn and his legendary peers at Jacob's Pillow. With advanced degrees from Williams College and the George Washington University, Renée specializes in accelerated adult learning techniques.

Susan Moore mentors all Ballet Mobile dancers and specializes in teaching pointe and dancer-oriented strength training. A gifted artist, her original drawing inspired the award-winning Ballet Mobile Kinetic Sculpture in the 2015 American Visionary Art Museum Baltimore race. 

Angela Walker regularly commutes from Kansas City, Missouri to choreograph and teach. Angela was a Kansas City Ballet dancer, studying and performing at Harkness in New York City and around the world throughout her military career. 

Sarah Whiteford is a graduate of Rider University's Musical Theater program. She teaches jazz and show dancing.




Atelier is a French word meaning an artist's workshop or studio, a place in which both the art and the artist are molded, shaped and nurtured. It best describes Ballet Mobile's environment because it represents the artistic journey of the dancer who is continuously growing and discovering. Just as Ballet Mobile transforms any room into an artistic experience, so too does ABC offer the multidimensional adventures of the artistry itself.

Parents and loved ones say it best: "Whenever I watch them dance, I try not to cry because what they do is so beautiful." "I cannot believe what these young people are able to do and how much they love it." "Every time I watch, I am revitalized." "All of you deserve standing ovations." "I think I learn as much as they do every time I watch." "What a golden opportunity for these dancers - and for all of us."



Ballet Mobile's Atelier de Ballet Classique is able to offer scholarships and superb ballet training at modest costs, thanks to the generous contributions of Ballet Mobile Archangels and Angels who have directed their donations to ABC in honor of the following women.
