Vaganova Ballet Academy classical dance and duet methodology professor Irina Trifonova celebrates her jubilee today (October 29, 2019). Trifonova is the Academy’s longest-serving teacher – she has been working there since 1951! Trifonova had studied under Maria Romanova (Galina Ulanova’s mother) and Agrippina Vaganova. Happy birthday!
