Well, it seems like you really do have a good handle on the Russian teachers in Philadelphia. I hope you are successful in arranging private lessons and that you have the time to venture further afield. New York is only 2 1/2 hours away and it makes a nice day to go to the city and take a class and soak in the NYC atmosphere!

Agree with the Penn Academy of Ballet post - I haven't been there in years but they used to have an absolutely thriving adult program, with Russian (cuban) Vaganova based classes. I had part of my training there as a pro

Mr. White and his wife and their staff, which I believe is now led by his daughter, teach Russian.  He is well-known for his Vaganova pedagogy courses for ballet instructors.

Yes, another vote for Pennsylvania Academy of Ballet in Narberth.  Thriving adult classes from beginner to advanced.  Vaganova-based curriculum. I learned everything I know from them.

Yes, his daughter Melinda Pendleton teaches regular division and adult division classes.  Mr. White teaches adult advanced classes.
