IDA Faculty


Ballet Teacher

Shaina Kaim trained under Deborah Buttner and Mary Buttner with IDA and IBC since 2003 showing enormous perseverance and dedication to rise, in a comparatively short time, from teen ballet to the coveted role of the Sugar Plum Fairy. It is because of this determination to perfect her own technique and phenomenal rise to a principal role that we attribute her extraordinary ability to teach and mold our young pupils. Together with her own initiative and enormous love of dance, Shaina replicates both Miss Deborah and Miss Mary in her teaching skills and has become the sort-after and respected young teacher that we are so very proud of!
Shaina Kaim trained in classical ballet in the two-year apprentice program at the North Carolina Dance Theater, under the renowned Jeanne-Pierre Bonnefoux, Patricia McBride and Mark Diamond. She also completed programs at the New World School of Arts. Shaina auditioned and attended prestigious summer programs at the Orlando Ballet Company, Ballet Austin and the Joffrey Ballet Company, NYC. Professionally, Shaina has danced in the North Carolina’s ‘The Nutcracker,’ American Ballet Theater’s ‘Sleeping Beauty’ in Miami, Cuban Classical Ballet Company, and was soloist in the TOC Project 2012 production. For IBC, Shaina danced as ‘friend’ in Coppelia and the principal roles of Snow Queen and the Sugar Plum Fairy. As a qualified instructor, Shaina also offers Yoga classes for adults, teens and children.
