David 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.
