Val Glenister

About The Teacher

Val Poczwa Glenister began ballet at the tender age of four years, continued her studies under the Royal Academy of Dancing (RAD), eventually obtaining the highest qualification, the Solo Seal. After winning her first scholarship to the New Zealand Ballet School, Val won a further scholarship to the Royal Ballet School in London. She graduated and joined the Belgium Ballet Company and danced for a number of years professionally, throughout Europe. At the suggestion of legendary promotor Harry M Miller, Val moved to Australia and put together an Adagio Act and Dance Troupe, which toured Asia and Australia for five years. As a natural progression, Val has applied herself to Hatha, Ashtanga and Kriya Yoga, bringing the unique drive and determination, essential to an elite ballet dancer. With the professional understanding of movement and how the body functions, Val now imparts her knowledge to her many students. Over the past 35 years she has practiced yoga and pilates daily.
