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 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 men’s and boy’s class, and duet/partnering class we will have Kirill Lordski, 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.
