What Does 50 Years of Pilates Look Like?
It looks like our teacher and friend, Sheila Cohen.
Sheila was one of the Pilates method’s earliest students when she worked with Pilates protégé Carola Trier in New York starting in the 1950s. She has been a dancer with the Lucas Hoving Dance Co., Princeton Ballet Co., and the Meredith Monk Dance Co. Sheila was also a student of Martha Graham, Alexandra Danilova (of the Ballet Russes), Henry Danton (of the Royal Ballet), the Joffrey Ballet School and more. She is currently on the faculty of the Princeton Ballet School, guest teacher for the school of the Cincinnati Ballet, and former head of dance department at SCPA for 22 years. She is also master teacher for national ballet conventions and choreographer for the Cincinnati Pops Orchestra.
We are lucky to have her as our “Master Teacher” in residence! And this Sunday, March 29th, from 3-6 pm, Sheila will teach a special workshop for Pendleton teachers, clients and friends. From 3-6 at the Downtown Studio. Visit www.pendletonpilates.com.
