Brooklyn Dance Classes Taught by Experienced Performers
Brooklyn Ballet is pleased to welcome many new teachers to its talented dance faculty this fall. Two of our most recent additions to the ballet conservatory staff are Nikki Hefko and Inna Yureneva. Nikki has toured nationally and internationally with The Dance Theatre of Harlem. She has also danced with Les Grands Ballet Canadiens, the Metropolitan Opera and Brooklyn Ballet. Inna hails from Moscow, Russia, and graduated from the Bolshoi Theater Academy. She has performed with many companies, including The Metropolitan Opera, Connecticut Ballet, Saba Dance Theater and Ballet New York, among others. We can’t wait to watch our children’s ballet knowledge grow under their guidance.
Brooklyn Ballet recently held auditions for our 10th Anniversary Season performances. We were looking for both male and female dancers with a range of technical ability - dancers who would feel comfortable not only in classic ballet roles but in collaborations with hip hop artists and movement in the Isadora Duncan style.
The 10th Anniversary Season will include a study of Isadora Duncan's influence on the structure and content of ballet, and Brooklyn Ballet is searching for the dancer who can embody Isadora Duncan's flowing style as well as turn heads while en pointe.
