Ballet Summer Intensive


Our Ballet Summer Intensive program 2017 will take place from July 24 through August 11 at the premises of Victoria International Ballet Academy (Toronto, Ontario, Canada).

This comprehensive choreography program  follows the Vaganova syllabus and  includes master classes with renowned international ballet stars and teachers.  Every year we invite the best guest teachers of Classical ballet, Character dance, Partnering and Male technique.

Classes will be taught as well by our teachers who have obtained their Master’s Degrees in Education from the Vaganova Academy in St. Petersburg: Ms. Victoria Mironova, founder of Victoria International Ballet Academy, and Ms. Elena Dmitrieva, senior ballet teacher and choreographer of the Academy.

The program will include stretching, classical ballet, repertoire, pas de deux, male class, and an end-of-program performance with all participants.

We will also offer weekend day trips to downtown Toronto,  Niagara Falls, and Canada’s Wonderland among others.

You can apply via an in-studio or video audition.  Once you are advised that your audition was successful, please download your Summer Intensive Reg. Form 2017 here, fill it in and send it to us.  You will be registered after you have paid all fees. If you would like more information please call us at 1-905-707-7580.

3 Week English (ESL) Program

Students who sign up for the 3 Week English as a Second Language Program will receive 20 hours of instruction on campus. A major advantage of our ESL program is that all students are immersed in an English speaking environment and can immediately practice what they have learned in class.

The program will focus on conversation skills and usable vocabulary through a series of interest based and cultural seminars, grammar, pronunciation, and writing skills.

The backyard is a quiet space surrounded by nature and fresh air. As students finish their daily routine of rigorous ballet training, they can relax and replenish their energy in this harmonious environment.  After this summer intensive students will experience growth in their physical ability and their conceptual understanding of ballet.
