Maria Sirigos began her dance training at the Vicky Simegiatos Performing Arts Center at the age of 1. Under the guidance of Vicky, Matina, and Despina Simegiatos, she found her passion and love for dance. At the age of 6, Maria auditioned and was accepted to the School of American Ballet. During her time at the School, she performed in numerous ballets with the New York City Ballet, including George Balanchine’s The Nutcracker and A Midsummer Night’s Dream. As she grew older, Maria also found a love for singing and acting. This led her to attend Fiorello H. LaGuardia High School as a vocal major.


She continued to attend VSPAC and perform on its award-winning competition teams as well as take part in their musical theater program.


She is very excited to be a part of the faculty at VSPAC, her first and forever dancing home!
