“I could write novels about the impact MaryElizabeth’s training and teaching has had on my life. I have gained so much more than proper ballet training from her. She helped me grow in ways I thought were impossible and gave me the confidence to succeed in all my endeavors. In my adulthood, I am able to look at obstacles with an objective mind, confident that I can accomplish my dreams. MaryElizabeth’s belief in me stays with me to this day, continues to guide me, and will stay forever a part of the woman I am today.”

"We have received continuous and unconditional support from MaryElizabeth Mock through the consultation services offered by Florida Ballet Arts - Professional Dance Alliance. I have just started my ballet school business and was clueless on what steps to take as far as advertisement, equipment, contacts, search for optimum places for opening my studio. They have guided me on what are the best strategies to maximize our profits and marketing. We don't hesitate to contact them for ongoing support and they always give us quick, detailed, and extensive responses. MaryElizabeth Mock's advisement is truly valuable for us, as she is experienced in the ballet and arts world on every level."

Business Coaching may be as in depth as an owner needs. If your studio feels like it's unraveling and that more intense consultation and restructuring is needed, please contact us via phone / email. We will put together a package that works for your specific needs. In some cases, travel to the studio may be the best option for observation, assessment, and more intense consultation.
