Hilary Cartwright

Following her career as a soloist with the Royal Ballet (England), Hilary became a director, a ballet teacher, a coach and she also began to stage ballets.  She is now an Ashton Associate.  She has developed Yoga For Dancers, which she has been teaching for the past 25 years after co-founding White Cloud Studio in New York with Juliu Horvath.

Her unique approach and presentation of the work has taken her all over the world. Her acclaim appeals both to internationally renowned ballet companies as well as schools for young students and an expanding group of individuals who are non dancers.

A Yoga for Dancers Intensive Retreat course, which she started in Italy the summer of 2006; is housed in a beautiful, picturesque villa outside Florence and continues annually. This original endeavor has expanded to include Retreats in Puerto Rico, Los Angeles, Seattle, London and Bath, England, Morocco and Costa Rica, which together with future locations, will become training centers for the team of new teachers she is assembling and will direct.
