Howard is acclaimed as the "teacher of stars". Indeed, he is famous for
coaching such luminaries as Gelsey Kirkland, Natalia Markarova, Mikhail
Baryshnikov, Patrick Swayze, and Mary Tyler Moore. David's unique methodology
is founded in scientific approach to movement involving kinetics and anatomical
principles. His teaching techniques are as revealing and applicable to
the teaching of emerging young dancers and adult beginners as to established
professionals. David Howard approaches the acquisition of ballet technique
through dynamics of movement, musicality, and energy patterns. His kinesthetic
approach eliminates much of the tension, and resulting injury, associated
with technique as it is traditionally taught.
