When Lindy Mandradjieff opened the Dance Conservatory of Charleston in June 2017, she set out to raise the bar for dance curriculum in the Lowcountry.
Today, Mandradjieff is attracting world-famous industry names to her studio for hands-on training to connect students of all ages and skill levels with dance professionals through a formal Master Class series. After training at the School of American Ballet, the official school of the New York City Ballet, Mandradjieff began her career at 17 with the San Francisco Ballet and later the New York City Ballet where she was highly regarded by critics. Today, Mandradjieff leverages her connections in the dance world for her master class series at the conservatory, a first-of-its kind program that fosters continued education, training and networking through a series of workshops led by world-renowned dance professionals. “My vision for the conservatory was to combine the technical training of a preeminent American dance academy with the heart and accessibility of a community dance center to develop the next generation of artists,” said Mandradjieff.
