VICTORIA MIRONOVA

Founder of our School and Artistic Director

VICTORIA MIRONOVA, M. Ed. is an accomplished Russian ballerina, ballet instructor and choreographer who lives and works in Vaughan, Ontario. She is the founder and Artistic Director of Victoria Ballet Company and Victoria International Ballet Academy, the only private school in York Region that offers both a K-12 Ontario certified curriculum, and a daily professional ballet program.

The groundwork for this unique institution was laid by a young and talented Mironova, back in 1977, when she graduated from St. Petersburg’s renowned Vaganova Ballet Academy. After gaining 21 years of professional dance experience, Ms. Victoria, as she is respectfully called by all her students, went on to earn a five year university degree from the Pedagogical Department of the Vaganova Academy. Her major in teaching choreographic disciplines according to the Vaganova syllabus, has led her exactly where she planned to be, running her own school and ballet company in Canada. Ms. Victoria obtained her knowledge of the Vaganova syllabus directly from Natalia Dudinskaya, a student from Agrippina Vaganova, thus becoming part of the second generation of teachers to master this world-renowned syllabus.
