Goulet Ballet is meant to help you learn, grow, and develop into the best dancer you can be.  Focused around ballet and time management, it is designed to aid in an aspiring ballerina’s journey through the ups and downs of a potential dance career – both as a comforting, inspirational sanctuary and an informational resource.

This blog features new posts every Sunday, Wednesday, and Friday.  Although, be watching for “bonus” posts including vlogs, routines, and more.  I enjoy catering to what my readers want, so make sure to leave requests for me to take note of.

The Goulet Ballet blog was founded in August of 2014, and has since been developed into a nourishing environment for dancers of all kinds.

The writer

Ella Goulet is fifteen years old and works as an aspiring ballerina and writer.  She has been dancing for thirteen years and training professionally in classical ballet for eight.  She both trains at the Grand Rapids Ballet School and attends a local public high school in the United States.

Ella dances with her school’s Junior Company in addition to performing renowned ballets alongside the professional company.  She trains in a mixture of the Balanchine, Cecchetti, and ABT styles, but has also experienced the Russian, RAD, and French styles throughout her dance career.

In 2016 she attended the Joffrey Academy of Dance summer intensive in Chicago, Illinois.  Other than that experience, she has attended summer intensives at her home school and trained with guest teachers including Maria Kowroski, Sabi Varga, Astrit Zejnati, Nicole Ciapponi, and Keenan Kampa.  She has also experienced training under the former artistic director of the Grand Rapids Ballet, Patricia Barker, who is a former principal dancer with the Pacific Northwest Ballet.

As a writer, she has been honing her skills her entire life, and works toward developing clarity and a wider range of expression.  Continuing to develop her blog into a large platform for young dancers has been an experience that has helped her develop as a person and a businesswoman.

In her free time, she enjoys skiing, hiking, photography, and organization.
