Extra Pirouette, New York
The grace, beauty and pure fun of ballet are on offer thanks to Extra Pirouette, the dancing academy led by Anastasia Erchov. A graduate of the esteemed Vaganova Ballet Academy in Saint Petersburg, Erchov now lends her considerable talents to teaching others. Both children and adults, beginners and seasoned ballerinas can benefit from her gentle guidance. Unlike many ballet schools that subject students to endless barre work and other exercises, Extra Pirouette focuses on actual dancing. Erchov even creates choreography specially designed to give each pupil the best possible experience. With more than two decades of offering ballet instruction to Americans—and to aspiring dancers around the world—Erchov knows how to make any student feel confident and engaged in this timeless art. Extra Pirouette is now available on Gilt City.

You can learn to cha cha, tango, rumba and even hustle like a professional. No matter your age or skill level, the world-class teachers will guide you through the foundations of each dance, working on your variety, technique and footwork.
