I’ve studied at several other studios in New York City. Because of the lack of structure in all of these other studios, the “unenthusiasm”, the teachers aren’t as passionate about the work. The standard of perfection just wasn’t really there. It wasn’t as exciting. I didn’t really fully understand what I was learning. I always felt there was something missing. Then I came here. The people here care about the work. I’ve never seen so much love for the craft. You are expected to work and work hard. You have to meet with your partner in between every class. You have to know what you’re coming into class with and be prepared and have an understanding of the work.
