Founder, Director & Instructor
Ms. Cassy has almost 20 years in experience teaching ballet. Most recently, she spent time in Manhattan, with world renowned dancers and instructors Irina Kolpakova, Vladilen Semenov, Elena Sherstneva, Ekaterina Schelkanova and Anton Boytsov among others whom all graduated from the famous Vaganova Academy in St. Petersburg, Russia before continuing careers with Bolshoi, Mariinsky (Formerly Kirov) and ABT. Ms. Cassy was also given the rare and priceless opportunity to study in great detail the breakdown of teaching the Vaganova method from one of Agrippina Vaganova’s favorite students and one of the rare few she also trained as an instructor, Ludmilla Safronova.
Ms. Cassy is passionate this knowledge continues to be passed down to future generations before it is lost and to ensure the art form can continue in all its rich and beautiful prestige.
