We are super excited to announce that Helene Williamson will be our guest Ballet instructor for the Music City Dance Festival intensive! She will be joining us from California and was a former dance partner of our own Thom Yzaguirre!.
A native Californian with passion for dance, Helene was raised in La Cañada Flintridge in the foothills of the San Gabriel Mountains. Her dance training began there and took her to Manhattan, where she attended the esteemed School of American Ballet at Juilliard and American Ballet Theatre School. Her talent was recognized by Mikhail Baryshnikov, who gave her a part in his television special – which led to a series of other performances in movies and television. At the age of 17, Helene joined the Los Angeles Ballet under John Clifford’s direction, before moving on to the Nevada Ballet Theatre. These years proved to be artistically fulfilling but physically demanding. At age 26, her dance career came to an abrupt end with a devastating hip injury. It was during her recovery that she was introduced to Pilates. In 1997, Helene became a Certified Pilates Instructor under Master Teacher, Romana Kryzanowska.
While raising her two children in La Cañada, Helene became deeply involved in championing fundraising events for their schools, along with a passion for interior design. This led to a natural progression of her artistic expression, from dance to design. Her mix of creativity and thoughtful communication thus made interior design a fluid career transition.
As her design business grew, she continued teaching ballet and Pilates. In 2010, Helene was asked to build a business from the ground up for a prominent dance school in Pasadena. Though no longer teaching full time, she still enjoys coaching students and giving private lessons.
In her down time, Helene enjoys entertaining with friends and family, creating floral designs and riding horses in the natural beauty of Southern California. •
