On May 15, 2011, our first six graduating students, and our advanced professional students took their final examination in front of an international panel of examiners, including distinguished personalities from the world of Ballet such as Mr. Vladilen Semenov, principal dancer with the Kirov Ballet in St. Petersburg and teacher of Mrs. Victoria Mironova at the Vaganova Ballet Academy, presently teacher at American Ballet Theater. They were all greatly satisfied with what they saw and gave all of our dancers excellent reviews given their display of talent and great technique. Now that some of them have graduated, after months and years on end of dedicating themselves to learning the art of ballet at International Ballet Academy of Canada, one of the best possible sources of ballet training in Canada, we would like to congratulate them and wish them all the best as they continue advancing on the successful trajectory of their lives. They may be far away from our premises but will always remain close to our hearts. Well done ballerinas!
