Alexandra Zaharias, founder

The Alexandra School of Ballet was established in 1949 to provide professional ballet training for students. Over the years, classes in character, modern and variations have been added. The goal of the school has always been to develop a sound technique and cultivate an appreciation of dance in every student, whether hopes are for a professional career or for cultural enrichment and enjoyment.

The faculty has been selected with great care and have had the finest possible training. Technique is carefully structured in order to produce students who have the strength, flexibility and style necessary should they decide to pursue a career in dance.

Many students have become teachers. Others have appeared on and off Broadway or have danced with various national and international companies, such as Alvin Ailey Dance Theatre, American Ballet Theatre, New York Metropolitan Opera Ballet and many more.

Alexandra Zaharias is the Director of Alexandra School of Ballet, and Artistic Director of Alexandra Ballet Company. She received her early training in St. Louis from Isabella Rainford and continued her studies at the School of American Ballet in New York City under the legendary George Balanchine. She attended the National Academy of Ballet, under the direction of Thalia Mara, renowned teacher, author and founder of the U.S. International Ballet Competition. Alexandra is a member of the National Society of Arts and Letters, and founding member of Regional Dance America MidStates.
