A little about me...

Dance for me, is another world of existence, in which the mood, thoughts and sensations are transmitted with the help of expressive movement.

As a child, I was very creative, with a good physique for Ballet and good flexibility, which are necessary for a professional dancer. Therefore, from the age of 3, my parents took me to a dance studio to practice Ballet. Entering later in to a professional dance school in Moscow, I began to seriously engage in classical dance. In addition to Ballet, we were taught other dance disciplines - such as folk dance, historical and duet dance, acting skills and modern dance.

In the School of Classical Dance I was engaged under the direction of Gennady Ledyakh - honored Artist of Russia, the premiere of the Bolshoi Theatre and the student Asaf Messerer.

I worked in different dance companies including "Ballet Revival" and "Russian Seasons", and often performed with stars of show business. Most memorable was the participation in a grand concert at the celebration of the ‘Day of Moscow’, which took place in the main square of the capital.

At the age of seventeen I began to teach classical dance with children. At this point I realised that I really love children and working with them, so much that I wanted to become a teacher.

Goals and objectives

At my Russian Ballet school I want to preserve and continue the traditions and cultural values ​​of the Russian Ballet. As a musical accompaniment in my lessons, I use classical music

Work in the school is conducted according to A. Vaganova. This technique, based on the principle of "from simple to complex," and was recognized in the world of Ballet. It is used in leading theatres of the world such as the Mariinsky Theater, the Bolshoi Theater, La Scala and Covent Garden.

Why classical dance?

Classical dance is a great way to develop posture at the earliest stage of child development. Classical dance lessons teach discipline, concentration, the ability to work in a group with other children, develop acting talent, a sense of rhythm and a musical ear.

Coming to my classes your children will receive professional choreographic training, which will allow them to choose any dance style in the future, in which they want to work further.

In my classes, I pay great attention to the correct position of the body, hands, feet and head, Feeling of posture and musicality.

And I also work with children in parterre gymnastics (a ballet complex of exercises on the floor for a detailed study of the muscles of the legs, the press and back.), Which promotes the development of flexibility, stretching, the correct formation of muscles. Parterre or Knyazev gymnastics, has already become an integral part of the training for all involved in ballet.

Aims and objectives At the school of classical dance, I want to continue the preservation and maintenance of the traditions and cultural values ​​of the Russian ballet.
