    Irina is the real deal.  You will have to drive a long way to find an instructor with her experience and expertise.  Our daughter took classes from Irina when she was younger, and that training helped her move on to a career as a ballet dancer with a very well-known company.  Now when she returns home for a visit, she stays in shape with classes at Irina's excellent studio.  Really, if you are serious about ballet training, you owe it to yourself to give this excellent school a try.

  • I know first hand what an incredible ballet master Irina is. I studied with her in both Maine and Miami and always felt she was one of the best instructor of the Vaganova technique.

    I danced since I was three years old and learned techniques including Ceccetti, Balanchine, and Vaganova. If you're not sure what the difference is, just know that the Russian Vagonova technique is the creme de la creme of all three, and Irina teaches it better than anyone I've received instruction from.

    My training from Irina helped me land a contract with a company in Florida in which I performed with professionally. I've lived and received instruction in six states from more than 30 instructors. Believe me when I say, you're lucky to have such a gifted master of ballet in the Long Island area. She makes ballet training an enjoyable experience by being a truly kind teacher who understands how much kids need a balance of fun and discipline. Don't wait any longer to have your kids be apart of what will be one of their greatest learning experiences.
