Summerschool Coaching Special with Mirella Simoncini "Balanced Ever After" with students of The Dutch National Ballet Academy (NBA): Claire Tjoe, Léa Visser, Luna Vleesch Dubois.
Mirella has successfully coached numerous dancers and students. Most of them she continues to support throughout their careers.

"I really enjoyed coaching and working on placement by shifting most of my body weight to the balls of my feet, I believe it has improved my turn out. And I am happy with the spotting technique Mirella used for pirouette. To keep my torso really up straight, I learned how you should make your focus come slightly up with you on eye level when going from plie onto demi pointe".Fabienne Deesker - The Royal Conservatoire, The Hague

“It is always a pleasure to take class with Mirella Simoncini. She knows when and how to say the right corrections to seek for improvement. With only one class she can spot how to help everyone of us with individual tools to go further and improve. Excellent exercises, brilliant spirit, and spot on corrections”.

Pierre Tappon – Dancer at Rambert Dance Company

"Mirella heeft soms een eenvoudige aanpak, waar je meteen mee aan de slag kan. De specifieke oefeningen hebben mij erg geholpen".
Sander Baay - Koninklijk Conservatorium Den Haag

“Bij de Coaching die ik heb gedaan heeft Mirella me geleerd beter met muzikaliteit om te gaan en hoe je het toe kan passen in verschillende oefeningen. Daar heb ik heel veel van geleerd en ik kijk uit naar nog een andere Coaching!"
Anna van Dieren - Nationale Balletacademie Amsterdam

Mirella Simoncini and Elias Boersma (KC)

"De coachingslessen van Mirella zijn echt heel fijn. Ik heb dit jaar vóór mijn balletexamen een paar lessen gehad, en me vooral bezig gehouden met sprongen, pirouette, balans en focus. Dat heeft me enorm geholpen" 
Elias Boersma - Koninklijk Conservarorium Den Haag

"I have received coaching from Mirella on a classical variation and technical coaching both were so beneficial, mentally as well as physically. She has the unique ability to tailor the coaching sessions for your personal needs and communicates her knowledge in a variety of ways in order to get the best out of you"
