A parent's take on the MasterClass experience:
"My daughter, Camilla, joined Miss Whitten’s masterclass at the start. Miss Whitten’s teaching has been absolutely invaluable to Camilla and has transformed her ballet beyond any of our expectations, so that she is now in full time dance training. Miss Whitten is quite simply the most wonderful teacher that Camilla has found, her explanations are so clear and make all the movements so much easier to understand. Her masterclasses have been the making of Camilla."

"It is an extraordinary privilege for my daughter to be taught by Miss Whitten, who brings a wealth of experience as a ballerina and as a world class teacher to the lessons. Miss Whitten has an incredible eye for technique, picking up on the smallest detail and pushing my daughter to challenge herself, but she is also very warm and funny and makes the lessons fun at the same time. What has really struck me is the beautiful quality of movement that Miss Whitten has when she demonstrates the steps and I have noticed my daughter starting to stand and move differently, evidently captivated and inspired by her. The improvement in my daughter's technique and performance quality since starting Miss Whitten's classes two years ago is remarkable."
