As a student, I can say it's really a marvel to have worked with Ballet Fantasque over the years. We love our teachers and respect them very much. They provide a positive and productive environment for us. We learn so much, and we enjoy it all.
Thank you for this article.

In the late 70s I received a ballet scholarship from her, as I was taking ballet at MPC. (It started out as rehab for a football knee injury. I will never forget the kindness and, the HARD work. It was more than worth it. Thank you Kira.....

I love them all. My last teacher Ana Halpin explains how she got all the out-of-work russian teachers together and gave them the impetus to try to teach ballet even after she had moved on to post modern slurryism. This means oh so much to us all.
