Natalia Lind is an internationally acclaimed performer, choreographer, and dance teacher. The daughter of a Russian opera singer and a well-known archeologist, Natalia has been immersed in the world of theatre, music and dance almost from birth.
Throughout her childhood, Natalia studied ballet, theater, classical piano, dance, and more. At nine years of age, she was accepted into a Russian ballet conservatory. Later, her abilities earned her a coveted spot in the Russian Academy of Theatre Arts (GITIS), one of the top performing arts schools in the world, where she earned her MFA in Performing Arts.
In 2001, Natalia’s musical theater career brought her to Los Angeles. There, she took extensive private training in International Standard and Latin, American Smooth and Rhythm, and the club styles, and became dance partners with Michael Kuka.
