Но предварительно я сама проучилась 5 лет на педагогическом факультете Академии Вагановой и получила соответствующий диплом – высший в нашей пр Вопрос: Вы говорите, что эта школа является Вашим главным достижением?

Know more about the founder of Victoria International Ballet Academy

VICTORIA MIRONOVA: AN IMMIGRANT IN CANADA  Dear Victoria, will you please introduce yourself for our readers? I am the founder and artistic director of Victoria International Ballet Academy and of Victoria Ballet Company. Today this school is known beyond Canada.

I am a Ballerina

Anastasia Loskutov: I am a Ballerina   Q: Anastasia tell us a little bit about your background A: I was raised in a family who was not involved in the arts.

But instead of this my wise parents decided to take me to a ballet school and that is how I became part of the wonderful environment of  Victoria Ballet Academy.
