What a difference a few months of PBT and coaching has made for my daughter. Megan has helped transform not only her physical strength but emotional confidence as well. I feel Megan meets kids where they are and helps them achieve their full potential. We have seen such dramatic results with her training methods. We are not alone ... my daughter was invited to Miami City Ballet summer intensive. I am a very proud parent and recommend Megan to any dancer who wants to develop strength and technique. Thank you Megan for helping this young lady realize one of her dreams! We are so thankful.
My daughter Aubrianna has a blast in leap and learn. Great instruction at a age appropriate level. My daughter is 3.5 years old and looks forward to classes
We met Megan when my daughter, Grace, started ballet back in the fall of 2014. Due to some medical issues, my daughter needed a safe and correct way to gain strength. Megan went above and beyond to help Grace learn the correct way to use her muscles and strengthen her body. She continued working with her for the two years we were in Albuquerque, helping Grace to gain strength and proficiency as a dancer.
After we left Albuquerque, Megan continued to be a part of Grace’s life and even held a workshop at our new studio. They utilize Megan’s techniques in their weekly PBT strengthening class. Besides having an excellent program, Megan truly cares for the dancers she meets. She regularly keeps in touch with dancers she works with, even ones that are located in different states, always making sure they have what they need to succeed in their art. My daughter is a better dancer because of Megan. We are incredibly grateful for everything she has done to help Grace succeed. I would highly recommend her program to all dancers wanting to improve.
Megan is personally invested in each and every one of her students. She takes great care in creating programs that focus on what they each personally need to develop. Her program teaches dancers how to correctly engage their muscles thus minimizing potential injuries in the process. Over the years she has poured into my daughter through hours of research to find the best exercises to help correct her pronation and build strength so that she can move forward in her dance. Through years of Cecchetti, PBT and privates my breath is constantly taken away by how my daughter has grown and Megan has been a major part of that. Megan loves to share her passion for dance and that keeps my daughter loving it and looking forward to any time they have together whether it be in privates or classes.
Megan has expanded our understanding of what quality coaching and training should look like beyond the basics. She has brought out a passion in our daughter that we hadn’t seen before. As an instructor, she has an incredible knack for recognizing and acknowledging each individual’s strengths and helping them overcome any challenges. Her diligence, innovative techniques and passion for dance make her an invaluable asset to our daughter’s education and we are blessed to have the opportunity to work with her.
My son Sky Bleeker trained exclusively with Megan Berlint-Nicko in Albuquerque, NM. During his training with Megan I not only saw my son Sky grow tremendously in his ballet technique, but he also gained a renewed confidence in himself as a dancer and an appreciation for the art of dance. Megan taught Sky’s ballet classes, Cecchetti classes, and also her amazing Progressing Ballet Technique program. Megan’s PBT program taught Sky strength, proper technique, alignment and how to prevent and avoid injury. Megan works closely with each dancer individually to help set goals that they can achieve through hard work and the right mindset. Megan is not only well trained in all areas she teaches, but is compassionate, dedicated, knowledgeable and professional and makes it her mission to provide the best training for your dancer. Sky has been able to thrive in his training through the mentoring and support that Megan constantly gives him. I am so grateful as a mother to Megan for reigniting the spark in my son and inspiring him to always be the best he can be, and showing him how to love and respect the art of dance.
We are so excited to have found this dance academy! Miss Megan has been superb—my daughter is not quite 3 but has been welcomed with open arms! She asks to come to class and is so excited for leap n learn with Miss Megan & Little Jazz/Tap with Miss Amy! Positivity exudes from this place!!!
Megan is awesome! She provides a strong foundation as well as discipline & structure in her classes. We feel very lucky to have her teaching our daughter.
Miss Megan is hands down AMAZING! She runs a professional, safe and stable environment for the children and is the most passionate teacher I know. Her passion combined with her expertise, spunky personality and her kind heart provides an extremely unique learning experience for all dancers. With her commitment and professional training, the dancers learn so much more from her than just dance!
My two young sons just started dancing at SiSu Dance Academy. They love Miss Megan and the Leap n Learn classes. Megan is so patient with her students and has clearly put a lot of thought into the programs she offers. We look forward to class each week!
