Phillips has been known for decades as "Miss Pam" to thousands of students
in Los Angeles and Hollywood. Her ballet classes for children ages 4-14
encourage children to discover the joy of dancing while building a foundation
in classical ballet technique. Her classes emphasize creativity and imagination
in a non-competitive atmosphere that appreciates each child's unique abilities.
Children develop physical strength, coordination, and flexibility as well
as concentration, cooperation, and determination. Miss Pam's classes are
also a place where kids can be kids -- where they can use their imaginations
and play make-believe in a warm environment of music and fun. While some
of her students have pursued careers as professional dancers, many more
have continued dancing as adults for the pure joy they discovered in Miss
Pam's classes when they were young.
