Does anyone know whether Irina Shapchits (or her last name maybe now changed to Zavialova -- after marrying) still dances in Royal Ballet of Flanders? Any info?

Irina Shapchits left the Royal Ballet of Flanders in 2001 to join the Peter Schaufuss Ballet in Holstebro, Denmark. As far as I know, starting this season, she is finished there as well and seems to be teaching and dancing in Lissabon, Portugal.

If you are interested, mohnurka, there is an interview with Shapchits from the time when she was still a soloist with the RB of Flanders on For Ballet Lovers Only
