“I first had the immense pleasure of meeting Miss Miho Tsurutani back in 2010, when we both were attending a Cecchetti Summer School in Chichester, England.
I was on the teaching faculty: Miho was preparing to take the Enrico Cecchetti Diploma Examination, which holds the highest accolade, from the Cecchetti Society, for a Dancer/Teacher.
As expected Miho passed the examination with ‘Distinction’; A very well deserved result!
I was so impressed by Miho’s passion, deep knowledge and love of the art form. I knew, as an experienced teacher, that she would emphasise on the ‘Development of the Person/Artist, rather than only the technical aspect.
In 2019, I was honoured to be invited by Miho, to teach at her Summer School in Tokyo: This was very successful.
If I were a young student, studying ballet today, I would embrace Miho’s teaching, because She is of the highest standards and work ethic. ‘A Jewel of Japan’.
I wish her continuing success, and I have ‘No Hesitation’ in highly recommending her school: ‘The Ballet Garden, Tokyo Japan’”
