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. In 2017 we will also have Elizabeta Mironova, alumna of our academy and currently a professional ballerina with the Moscow State Company.  For boys class, and duet/partnering class we will have Kirill Lordski, also an alumnus of our Academy and currently a professional ballet dancer with Victoria Ballet Company.

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 know the results of your audition, you may download your Summer Intensive Registration Form 2017 , fill it in and send it to us.  You will be registered once all fees have been paid. If you would like more information please call us at 1-905-707-7580. We can help you in your own language.

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.

Students stay in shared bedrooms and enjoy a very pleasant and comfortable common space. At the dormitory, 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.
