Trained in the Russian and French styles, Ivaylo offers his students the stylistic precision, attention to detail, musicality, dance history and technique of both schools. His goal is to impart the "nobility of dance" to those that he trains. Ivaylo has worked with some of the biggest names in European ballet including Marika Besobrasova, Elisabeth Platel, Charle Jude, Roland Vogel, Attilio Labis, Christine Camillo, and Eva Evdokimova. In addition to his other classes, Ivaylo is also teaching a character dance class, an area of study to which American dancers do not have easy access.
Ivaylo Alexiev speaks five languages and obtained a diploma in dance pedagogy and history of ballet from L'Academie de danse classique Princesse Grace de Monte Carlo. Ivaylo is currently a full time faculty member at Jose Mateo Ballet Thetre since 2012 and a part time faculty member at Boston Ballet Scool since 2014. Mr. Alexiev's knowledge of classical ballet comes from extensive experience as a professional dancer abroad.
