Brooke Desnoës has developed her own curriculum and method over the years. The quality of her work and her dedication have made Ms. Desnoës a highly respected figure in the world of ballet.
“Brooke is one of the few people I have ever known who sees such a ‘big picture’ and she immediately recognizes what is valuable and where someone’s possibilities could take them. She is not afraid to consider all possible connections and benefits, with a diversity that informs her teaching and choreography that makes for a more complete education in a dancer of today’s time.” – Violette Verdy
