Eva Greiner Szabo was born and raised in Budapest, Hungary. Her lifelong passion was dancing and she was accepted into the Hungarian National Ballet Institute in 1970. She completed ballet school with Honors in 1979. This graduating class was the genesis of what became the “Gyori Ballet”. Eva appeared in all of the International Tours and performances of the Gyori Ballet, throughout Europe, Asia, the Middle East and North America, from 1979 until 1987. She attended college while performing and earned her degree, Summa Cum Laude, to teach dance. She taught ballet in the “Gyori Ballet Specialized Secondary School” for two years. During the Gyori Ballet tour in Baltimore, Md., in 1986, Eva met her future husband. This changed her life, and she retired from the Gyori Ballet in 1988. She said,” I never wanted to dance for another company, I just wanted to teach and raise a family”. Eva currently lives near Philadelphia, Pa., has been married for 30 years and raised a son and daughter.

Shortly after arriving in the U.S., Eva was a major organizer of the very first American group of dancers and teachers to not only visit, but study ballet in Hungary, under the name “International Ballet Society”. Eva has since been teaching continuously in numerous dance studios in Pennsylvania, New Jersey, and Nebraska. She is formally an Adjunct Associate Professor at the University of the Arts in Philadelphia, Pa. She taught there for 17 years. She started teaching at the “Pennsylvania Ballet School” in 1995 which later became “The Rock School”. She is still teaching at the Rock. Also, Eva has been teaching at the “South Jersey Ballet School” since 1991. She teaches at the “Koresh School of Dance” and occasionally at a number of local studios in the Delaware Valley.

Eva is trained and teaches Classical Dance, Pointe, Historical Dance, Ballroom Dance, Folklore Dance, Pas-De-Deux Technique and Variations. In order to provide something fresh and exhilarating Eva has since mastered a unique Floor-Barre exercise. You can find Eva’s profile in the “Marquis Who’s Who in America” book, 2010.
