We have launched "Learn Ballet Online" because ballet is a very complex and challenging art form, and it is hard to understand until you start executing it. It is a multidimensional activity involving physical, emotional, and psychological elements.
We do not believe that you can learn Ballet movements online, but you can learn the theory and comprehend how those movements are executed. Muscle memory can be a blessing and a curse - if you take a couple of classes and learn an incorrect technique, it will be tough to change! But, if you can understand the proper placement of your limbs and muscles, with the help of your teacher, your mind and body can guide you in the right direction.
No matter your dance style, it is critical to train your body and practice the correct technique to avoid injury. There is no instant gratification, and ballet is a process, a journey that you must be ready to take.
Whether your goal is to become a professional dancer or to practice for your enjoyment, taking our courses will offer you an opportunity to learn the in-depth execution of classical steps. These steps are explained in accordance with a syllabus, and each lesson is crafted with instructions for the implementation of specific ballet combinations.

Our bodies aren't built for ballet! That's why every dancer needs to adapt to rigorous training requirements to maintain balance, coordination, and muscles to be in shape to execute the most difficult steps for the human body. That's why we invented Learn Ballet Online, which will teach you how you can keep up a simple exercise without getting injured.

We tried many ballet classes/studios trying to find the right fit for my 6 yo 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 and Learn Ballet Online!

"If you want to be a professional dancer you definitely need to do the stretch class, not only does it elongate your muscles and gives you a better range in movement but it is also great for recovery and the mind, I definitely recommend this class! "-
- Melissa R
"Arsen's stretch class made me understand the correct body placement for ballet better, which I can apply in ballet class."
- Yuri N
"Stretch and conditioning class with Arsen is such an incredible class because you're able to make real gains in your flexibility while strengthening all over. Arsen is very knowledgeable about anatomy and works with each person individually to help everyone no matter where they are in their athletic progress, be it conditioning, core strength or flexibility—and whatever you may personally be working on and want to get out of the class. I love feeling pushed to really work hard and push through the pain, which is when you actually get more flexible!"
