Teaching

"Miriam Mahdaviani has been a guest teacher at our Summer School of Excellence at Purchase College State University of New York. Her teaching is noted for her preciseness when she demonstrates a combination, and for her attention to the detail and style of the classical ballet, when the dancers dance the combination. Her choreography is charming. In rehearsals for the stage, she shows the same care for presentation, and correct technique as she expects in the studio."

- Simon Kaplan, Director, American Academy of Ballet

"I began teaching students at Vassar College in 2003 and continue to this day.  My teaching extends to pre-professional ballet programs, summer Ballet Intensives , private lessons, and on-line coaching."

"Miriam Mahdaviani's approach to ballet instruction perfectly blends her excellent technical expertise with genuine care for her students -- an all too rare combination that fosters a challenging yet inclusive classroom environment."

– Jacob Butter, Vassar College Class of 2018
