Ballet Classes with Irina Shoumeikina

Irina trained at the Choreographic School of the Theater of Opera and Ballet in Kazan, Russia. 

After graduating, she danced as a ballet Soloist in the Theater of Dance in Kazan.

In 1977 she graduated from the St. Petersburg State Institute of Culture.

Following this, she became Ballet Mistress/Choreographer and lead instructor at the Theater of Dance in Donesk, Ukraine.

Upon moving to the United States in 1996, she became Ballet Mistress at the International Ballet Theater of the Performing Arts.

Irina has been teaching ballet to ice skaters since 1997.

It’s no surprise that most professional athletes use ballet in their training. It improves coordination, balance, strength, posture and flexibility. Anyone can take classes, and the exercises are relatively easy on your knees and back.
