“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.”

“I firmly believe that my success in this field is due in large part to my core years of training under Mary Elizabeth Mock. I have always known her to be a hard-working, brilliant individual who I am both honored and privileged to call my teacher and friend. Mary Elizabeth is a gifted instructor whose method of teaching is professional, defined, and effective. Anyone who might have the advantage of working with Ms. Mock is sure to reap the benefits of her gifts as an exceptional person, teacher, choreographer, dancer, and friend.”
