Here’s how Haley Bennett, Co-Owner/Ballet Teacher at
Prizm Company North Dakota, uses #30SecondBallets!

(Thank you to Haley and her dancers, who gave permission to use this video.)

  • Testimonial: "I can't say enough how impressed I am, or how easy it has been to use. I was feeling so in need of some inspiration, and I feel like it's easy to get overwhelmed in ballet... Introducing all levels of dancers to the story lines of notable ballets and then using the music and some choreography from them for class has been so fun! Highly recommend!" Hayley Bennett- Prizm Company, North Dakota
  • Testimonial: "Was recommended to us by my young daughter's favorite teacher and DD loves it of course! Very informative for a dance mom with no dance background too." 5-Star Amazon Reviewer, USA
  • Testimonial: "What a great contribution to the beautiful world of dance. I love it!!!" Mary Jane, Canada
  • Testimonial: "I've been reading #30SecondBallets in class and the kids are loving it! They're asking for storytime every week!" Tricia A. Thompson Harbison- The Wherehouse, Mississippi
  • Testimonial: "I have a paperback copy of #30SecondBallets for the waiting room in my dance school. It is great!" Robyn Sinclair- Dunedin School of Ballet, New Zealand
  • Testimonial: "I have used it in class and in my lobby. It's great!" Anne Fulton-Cavett, Gotta Dance, Arizona
  • Testimonial: "This was so helpful and time saving for my summer classes this year! I taught a different ballet each week to my classes. We talked about the composer, choreographer, and told the story. We learned variations from the ballets and I was able to easily get to clips to show thanks to your book!!" - Ashley DiYorio Slemp- Fredericksburg Ballet Center, Virginia
