"Marzipan" Online Ballet Variation Workshop

Updated: Jan 12, 2022

Hello Dancers! Let’s venture to the Land of the Sweets from The Nutcracker; Act II and learn a lovely version of “Marzipan!” This is also known as, “Dance of the Reed Pipes, and “Dance of the Mirlitons.”

I’ll be teaching you a magical blend of my own choreography mixed with NYCB / Balanchine embellishments. The whole variation is around 2.5 minutes and will be taught over three 90 minute sessions on Zoom!


1/25, 2/1, and 2/8 from 7-8:30 pm ET


On Zoom! Once you register and send in your payment, you’ll receive the zoom meeting link that you’ll use for all 3 sessions, so be sure to save the link!


  • Three 90 minute sessions

  • Proper 20-30 minute barre warm-up at the start of each session

  • Access to my unlisted instructional YouTube video that you can use whenever you’d like to practice at home

  • Final session on 2/8 will include our “performance recording!” IF YOU WANT, we’ll break up into several groups and each group will get to “perform” the variation which will be recorded and posted as an “unlisted” video on YouTube - meaning, ONLY YOU and those who you share the link with, can view the video.

  • As a special offer, you can book a FREE 20 minute 1-on-1 zoom session with me in which you’d “perform” the full variation for me and I’ll offer you any feedback, corrections, and artistic guidance. You can book this session whenever you’d like - it’s encouraged to book it either before the last session of the workshop OR after the workshop is complete.


Please click the link below and locate “Marzipan Workshop” on 1/25 and click register (this will register you for the full workshop)! The email address that you register with will be the email that you’ll receive the Zoom meeting link, so type carefully. After you register please proceed to send in your workshop payment one of the 3 ways listed below! Workshop rate is $90. Once payment is received you’ll receive the zoom link. Feel free to contact me if you have any questions.
