Misha started dancing at the age of 3 in her hometown in England, however when her family relocated to Dubai her passion for the performing arts really developed. During her time in Dubai, Misha was a student with Diverse, and performed as a young pre-professional dancer for various Flashmobs, Events and Brand Campaigns such as Harvey Nichols, Grosvenor House, Dubai Airport, Adventure Time & Fifa World Cup Opening Ceremony. She also played Peasblossom in ‘A Midsommer Nights Dream’ with the Northern Shakespeare Company in The First Group Theatre, Madinat Dubai.

In 2012 Misha began her professional studies in all things performing at the Northern Ballet School, where she was trained in Singing, Voice, Drama, Ballet, Contemporary, Jazz, Tap, Musical Theatre and Hip Hop. Whilst studying she performed with the Northern Ballet Company in their corps de ballet in their production of ‘Swan Lake’ at the Dancehouse Theatre, Manchester. Misha was then given the opportunity to continue her studies in Dance and Musical Theatre at one of London’s leading performing arts center – the Urdang Academy. Here she graduated with a First Class Honours Degree in Professional Dance and Musical Theatre.

After graduating, she gained experience performing in the UK and in Dubai in a number of different shows and events, alongside teaching the next generation of performers. In her short time in London after graduating, she had the privilege of performing in Jesus The Rock Opera, a musical in the The Dominion Theatre, London, Carols Spectacular, a Christmas show in the SSE Arena Wembley, and various other events and conferences in London.

Misha is passionate about passing on her love and knowledge of the performing arts to all students, regardless of age, ability or background. Creating a safe space for students to express themselves is essential for everyone to reach their full potential. With confidence gained for self-expression, the focus in her classes is on building a strong foundation of technique – by building strength / flexibility and body awareness to ensure safe progression.

Misha’s particular interest in biomechanics and anatomy led her to continue studying since graduating and she is also a certified Progressing Ballet Technique instructor, Acrobatic Arts instructor, STOTT Pilates instructor and Personal Trainer.

She is thrilled to have joined the team at Diverse and is excited to continue to share her passion and knowledge with all her new students.
