ROYAL DANISH BALLET (Copenhagen, Denmark)
Oscar Ainscough joins the world renowned Royal Danish Ballet.
Jacinta Walsh trained in the UK after which he embarked on a successful professional dance career in Europe with Bejart Ballet in Lausanne, Switzerland and now the Royal Danish Ballet in Copenhagen, Denmark.
In the words of Oscar Ainscough--
"Through your teaching and what we worked on I began to learn and understand correct alignment. You managed to help me implement things that have sent me on the path I am currently on and made me attractive to the European market. Without you I would have never known I had a physique, I would have never known I had the body or the ability, and I would have never gone to Europe to continue my studies.
Jacinta your teaching methods are just what the ballet world is lacking and in need of. Your teachings allow dancers to have a career like I am having. I am eternally grateful for what you did for me."
