Yana is a very passionate and dedicated teacher. There are no half measures if you want to dance with her at her school. Yana is a perfectionist and strives to achieve the very best for all her students. She pushes them to give and do their very best. Yana sets the Barre high! For those wanting a casual ballet class and to have fun – this is not the school for you. One needs to embrace ballet and dance wholeheartedly and be committed to putting in the extra hours and work to stand out from the crowd. The level of the performances and examinations is superior and something the girls and parents can be so proud of their little ones achieving. (It blows my mind each year what can be achieved in their lessons.) Yana builds confidence, strength, resilience, commitment, professionalism and a love for dance in the dancers. She tries to ignite the passion through commitment and hard work.
