Nadine Lavi danced with Darvash Dancers, a troupe formed by Mme. Gabriela Darvash, in Sleeping Beauty, Giselle, and in the Nutcracker, before an injury sidelined her performing days. After a hiatus, she came back and competely retrained with renown ballet master Fabrice Herrault (pictured on the right), and with Dawn Hillen at Steps on Broadway, and with Paris Opera Ballet star Karin Averty.  She currently takes class at Steps and in preparing to perform a variation of her own choreography to one of her grandfather's pieces. Ms. Lavi gives private ballet instruction and has taught in New Jersey and privately, and for open classes.
