Renée Meyer teaches the 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, which she applies to Ballet Mobile's house calls.

Sarah Whiteford is a graduate of Rider University's Musical Theater program. She teaches jazz and show dancing, focusing on dancer fitness and the most correct and safe methods for what is known as "dance tricks". She performs, teaches, and choreographs across Maryland.

Susan Moore is a gifted artist and actress. Her original drawing inspired the award-winning Ballet Mobile Kinetic Sculpture in one of the recent American Visionary Art Museum Baltimore races.

Angela Walker now lives in Kansas City, Missouri. When she visits, she always shares some of her time with Ballet Mobile. Her choreography is a treasured part of Ballet Mobile's repertory, and when she is in town, she teaches part of each class she observes. Formerly of Kansas City Ballet, she studied and performed at Harkness in New York City and around the world. 



Atelier is a French word meaning an artist's workshop or studio, a place in which the art itself, the artistic work, and the artist are perpetually molded, shaped and nurtured. It best describes Ballet Mobile's environment and ethos.

Ballet Mobile transforms any room into an artistic venue. So too does ABC offer the multidimensional discovery of the artistry itself - whether in Studio 18 at the Howard County Center of the Arts or at one of our venues.

Our "atelier" moves with us, as our audiences watch our classes and rehearsals in their spaces as their "shows before the shows". Everyone is together in the light. Comments include the following:

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