|Recurring Event (See all)

An event every week that begins at 9:30am on Thursday, repeating until September 5, 2019

“Drawing from ballet, modern dance, yoga, and qi-gong, we wake up gently listening to our bodies, breath, and music. Connecting to the ground and skies, we realize the reality of Energy and focus on creating fluidity, awareness, body-mind alignment and balance. We dance in the enchanted garden.” – Nina Jirka 

Nina Jirka studied various forms of dance, music, and theatre at the legendary Russian Dance Academy in the USSR. Dancing as a soloist with the Moscow Festival Ballet, Perm Opera, Kremlin Ballet, and Stars of Bolshoi, Nina toured extensively through Europe and Asia. Moving to New York, Nina continued to perform, study, and teach. In 2006, she received MA degree from the State University of New York and founded Tango New Paltz. Currently, Nina is teaching dance for the New Paltz Dance cooperative and the SUNY (New Paltz) Theatre Department.
