Lesli Irons
Guest Faculty
Lesli Irons was born and raised in Naples, Florida where she began studying dance from a young age at Études de Ballet. During high school, Lesli studied classical ballet as she completed all of the ‘Royal Academy of Dance’ ballet examinations including her ’Solo Seal’ performance.

She also had the opportunity to study pre-professionally with multiple dance companies including Hubbard Street Dance Chicago and Complexions Contemporary Ballet.

Lesli has won numerous competition dance titles, professional company scholarships, and awards for her choreography.

Upon graduating high school, however, Lesli switched her focus over to visual arts and graduated from Florida State University with a Bachelor’s Degree in Fine Arts.

Lesli has since moved to Orlando, FL and is excited to be dancing professionally for the Walt Disney World company in a show titled ‘Festival of the Lion King’.

She is also currently getting ready for the company’s holiday event, ‘Micky’s Not So Scary Halloween’.

Tricia Lovejoy
Guest Faculty
Growing up in New Orleans, Tricia Lovejoy trained with Lelia Haller, Premiere Danseuse with the Paris Opera Ballet, who gave her students a thorough grounding in both the French and the Bournonville (Danish) systems of ballet pedagogy, as well as exposure to the Cecchetti method.

She attended high school at the Washington School of Ballet with Mary Day and with Ben Stevenson of the Royal Ballet, where she studied RAD (Royal Academy of Dancing). With further training in Soviet Russia at the New Choreographic Institute in Moscow and the Tbilsi State Opera Ballet with Mikhail Lovravsky, Tricia found the Vaganova system provided strength of technique and refinement of epaulement.

Tricia’s career took her through the U.S., Canada, and Guatemala, affording her the pleasure of dancing many of the great classical Ballets, operas, and the works of emerging choreographers with Tulsa Ballet Theater, Hartford Opera, New Orleans Ballet, Delta Festival Ballet, and the New Orleans Opera Association.

Some of the coaches and choreographers with whom she’s worked include Georgina Parkinson, Ivan Nagy, Leon Danileon, Rochelle Zide, Roman Jasinsky, Royes Fernandez, Arthur Mitchel, and Victoria Simon.

She is a member of the International Dance Council (CID) at UNESCO. Tricia is a multifaceted teacher with a passion for helping dancers in their technical and artistic growth. Having taught ballet for 35 years, her strengths lie in her musicality, understanding of anatomy, attention to detail, love of art and history, and her desire to encourage the psychological health of each student.
