About  Us

We offer a variety of programs of teaching and training for professional ballet students to prepare them for ballet competitions, rehearse new roles, and set ballet productions for companies.

In our teaching, we follow the Vaganova System. Our objectives are to preserve and develop the best traditions of teaching classical dance while encouraging the fulfillment of artistic expression thereby enabling ballet students and professional ballet dancers to reach their full potential.  We help each student to enjoy the pleasure of artistic expression and experience technical accomplishments in the craft and art of dance overall.

As professional choreographers, our goal is to implement ballets from the Classical Heritage while keeping contemporary concepts of classical ballet.
