Classical Ballet / Dancer
Irene K. Przywara has trained at some of the leading dance institutions in the nation. Born in San Francisco, California and raised in southern Oregon, she began dance training at age five. Immediately upon arriving in New York, she auditioned for and was accepted on full scholarship to the School of American Ballet where she trained for three years with such teachers as Darci Kistler, Peter Boal, and Katrina Killian. Following her training there she accepted an offer to attend Ballet Academy East on full scholarship for four years under such respected teachers as Darla Hoover, Peter Frame, Cheryl Yeager, Stacy Caddell, and Francis Patrelle, among others. Most recently, she completed her third year in the Professional Training Program of Dance Theatre of Harlem where she worked with the renowned Arthur Mitchell and Virginia Johnson. She has performed with the Dance Theatre of Harlem Ensemble, Dances Patrelle, and Eglevsky Ballet, as well as at various summer programs, including American Ballet Theatre (NY Program), Orlando Ballet, Joffrey Ballet, as well as the New York State Summer School of the Arts (under the direction of Damian Woetzel). Her repertoire ranges from classics such as Swan Lake and La Bayadere to more stylized, contemporary works such as Dougla (Geoffrey Holder) and Forces of Rhythm (Louis Johnson). Ms. Przywara has also originated roles in works by choreographers such as Robert Garland, Endalyn Taylor, and Christopher d’Amboise. It is her second Nutcracker Season with Eglevsky Ballet.
