I can’t wait to hear from you!
I coach ballet dancers to find their true potential through mind-body-spirit mastery so their hard work will finally pay off, helping them rise to the spotlight and lead long, fulfilling dance careers.
I’m Susanne Puerschel, and my career as a ballet dancer began when I left home at the age of 10 to join an 8 year intensive training school. From starting my professional career at Staatsoper Berlin to dancing solo and principal roles in Charleston and Portland, I had major highlights and really challenging times. Ultimately, I stopped dancing earlier than I would’ve liked, and one thing I know for sure is that my ballet career would’ve been a completely different experience if I’d had a coach. I founded POINTE TO RISE to be the guide, support and encouragement I wish I’d had when I was in the midst of my own ballet career.
