About International Dance School

First step to improvement is to meet the right instructor.

International Dance School (IDS), as it is represented by its name, offers dance courses for students form age three to adults in a multi-cultural and accepting environment. We welcome you with our spacious studio in Meguro, providing classes with live piano accompaniment.

In our studio, we offer Ballet classes taught by Mr. Almazbek Shamyraliev a former teacher of Vaganova Ballet Academy, Ms. Irina Sitnikova as principal and visiting teacher (current Senior teacher at Vaganova Ballet Academy), and Ms. Dominique Khalfouni and Ms. Isabelle Ciaravola (both Etoile dancer from Paris Opera) as special visiting teacher, providing top-class artistic and technical guidance to our students. In IDS, we have sent many students abroad such as Vaganova Ballet Academy (Russia) and Manheim State Ballet Academy (Germany), who have later started working globally as a professional dancer.

As well as our high class ballet curriculum, we have variety of classes that support the ballet education, such as Physiotherapy course, chiropractic/ massage facility with professionals, Court Dance class, and Theatre & Performance class. We help you achieve your dream to become a realistic goal.
