Our teachers combine a wealth of stage experience in the best ballet companies and their training as ballet instructors at the Vaganova Ballet Academy in St. Petersburg Russia, to offer all students interested in achieving excellence in classical dance, the most effective system currently found in North America.
Victoria International Ballet Academy was founded by Ms. Victoria Mironova (Evdokimova), M. Ed. in 2003.
Ms. Victoria danced classical ballet for 21 years after graduating from the Vaganova Academy of Russian Ballet (St. Petersburg, Russia). She worked for the Mikhailovsky Opera and Ballet Theatre in St. Petersburg, Russia. In 1995, after 5 years of studies, she graduated from the Teachers Department of the Vaganova Academy majoring in ballet pedagogy and choreography.
Victoria Mironova represents the second generation of Russian ballet professors who have mastered the knowledge contained in the world-renowned Vaganova syllabus. She was a student of Natalia Dudinskaya, who was in turn a student of Agrippina Vaganova.
At the end of grade 12 and after successful completion of their professional examination, students of the academy not only receive their Ontario High School Diploma, but a Diploma as Ballet Dancers.
