Why Choose Russian School of Ballet

  • THE VAGANOVA METHOD

    We train our students in one of the most prestigious methods of ballet teaching. This style has been the core training of many of the world’s finest classical dancers. It is developed to work on the body as a whole.

  • HIGHLY EXPERIENCED TEACHERS
