Anna’s older daughter took ballet for seven years, and Anna had observed many classes in Russia and the United States. As a promising ballet student, Sonya studied with many prominent Russian ballet masters, including Valentina Gannibalova, prima ballerina of Kirov (Mariinsky) theatre in St. Petersburg.

As a result, Anna designed a series of ballet-based exercises.
