Private School
with Ballet Classes

Learning is a way of life


Victoria International Ballet Academy registered with the Ministry of Education of Ontario under No. 667420 as Arts and Science Academy of Canada has designed an environment and a curriculum which inspires students to love learning. Smaller class sizes, a personalized approach, a choice of specialized streams – all encourage our students to be the best.

The Academy

Victoria International Ballet Academy (Arts and Science Academy of Canada) is the fuel that ignites creativity and imagination in children. Since it opened its doors in 2004, the Academy has been empowering young (and very young!) artists from around the world through education, training, and professional opportunities.

The inspiration for the Academy came from the creative mind of Ms. Victoria Mironova – the artistic director and founder of Victoria Ballet Company. In her drive to support classical and traditional arts in the community Ms. Mironova founded the company, and then the school, in order to raise new generations of international talent.

Since then it has evolved into a full-fledged private school with a dedicated academic program that supports the professional art programs. The Academy has continued its expansion, first with the addition of a professional Fine Arts school and then with the opening of its Music and Vocal schools.

Each department of the Academy is led by talented educators who are also active professionals in their fields. The curriculum is carefully constructed to reflect the present and near future trends of each area of focus.

Our Philosophy

The Academy was founded on the mandate of inspiring strength and resilience in all students. Our educational philosophy equally values students’ character, academic, and artistic development. Our nurturing environment helps students naturally develop discipline, self-management, and responsibility. Discipline and self-management are the foundations of confidence and success. Success is not achieved by chance; rather, it is built through dedication, determination, and hard-work. Our system of success goals focuses on constructing long-term targets that involve multiple steps that teach students how to overcome setbacks.

Our students learn how to turn constructive criticism and peer-feedback into steps on the road towards their success goals. We show students that success is consistently achieved through effort, strategy, and perseverance.

As students reach their goals, they learn that their success is a reward for what they had accomplished, and they are motivated to work even harder for their next goal. This principle is the foundation for our academic and artistic programs, and is the reason why our students are successful, and continue to succeed after they graduate.

Exceptional ballet program for the serious aspiring professional. City Ballet SF School is by far the best program in the Bay Area. The teachers are professionals – very talented Dancers, Choreographers and Teachers. My daughter did a 4 week summer intensive. There were approximately 20 children in the class. We’ve been told by other parents that is common for students to stay a minimum of 2+ years at each level. The Teachers are wonderful coaches and care very much for the students. The students are very nice and supportive of one another.

My daughter has studied ballet here for over seven years and has received nothing but excellent Vaganova-style instruction. She adores the artistic director, Galina Alexandrova, and hangs on her every comment. (Yes, she does provide feedback in class.) Several older girls from the school have been accepted into training programs with major ballet companies (including SF Ballet and Boston Ballet), and one has been accepted into the Joffrey company, so I believe their training at City Ballet must have been more than adequate. Granted, this is a rigorous
