Welcome to Baryshnikova Ballet
Lead instructor and owner Nataliia Baryshnikova was born in Kharkov, Ukraine and studied ballet at the Kharkov Ballet Academy and the Kyiv Ballet Academy in Ukraine. Shortly after graduating from these prestigious schools Nataliia went on to dance with the Russian Imperial Ballet in Moscow, Russia. She danced in a myriad of performances around the world to include Swan Lake, Nutcracker, Scheherazade, Sleeping Beauty, Bolero, Carmen Burana, Valpurga's Night, Romeo and Juliet and Don Quixote.
After immigrating to the United States Nataliia proudly obtained her U.S. Citizenship and began teaching ballet at numerous ballet studios in the Washington D.C. and St. Louis areas. Nataliia has since chosen to open her own studio with the intention of sharing her passion and knowledge with dancers of the next generation.
