About John Welch

I am the Artistic Director of the JohnC Art Ballet and the creator of the Cradle Method, an innovative approach to the art of classical ballet. I have extensive experience working with injured dancers. I have returned hundreds of dancers back to the dance floor, even if doctors and therapists have told them they would never dance again. I am a master teacher and ballet choreographer and am available for private lessons, choreography, and master classes.

Forum on Dance

A primary purpose of my blog is to serve as a sounding board for all those interested in a more in-depth exploration of the inner workings of dance. Are you having problems with your dance? Frequent injuries? Experiencing difficulties advancing? Discovered a trouble spot that won’t seem to go away?

Send me a question in the comments and I will respond in a new blog post!

I have over 20 years experience working as a master teacher and my specialities are helping injured dancers recover; teaching those who struggle with traditional methods; and inspiring dancers who have been dissuaded from pursuing dance as a career.

A brief summary of my history: after starting at the age of 22, and with only 3 years of intense training, I was accepted, without even auditioning, to the Royal Winnipeg Ballet, one of the most well respected companies in the world. Now I want to share the secrets that made me progress so quickly.
