WITH OVER 20 YEARS OF HISTORY

History

Established in 2003 by Ms. Victoria Mironova (Evdokimova), M. Ed., and Vladimir Demine LLB, Victoria International Ballet Academy boasts a rich legacy rooted in the renowned Vaganova Academy of Russian Ballet in St. Petersburg. Ms. Victoria, with 21 years as a classical ballet dancer, joined the Mikhailovsky Opera and Ballet Theatre in St. Petersburg and graduated in 1995 from the Teachers Department of the Vaganova Academy, specializing in ballet pedagogy and choreography.
As a second-generation Russian ballet professor, Ms. Mironova inherits knowledge from the famed Vaganova syllabus, having been a student of Natalia Dudinskaya, who, in turn, learned directly from Agrippina Vaganova.

In 2004, the academy transformed into a full-time day school, seamlessly blending academic education with professional ballet training. Recently, VIBA partnered with Rotman Arts and Science Private School, allowing full-time professional ballet program students to earn both a High School Diploma and a Ballet Dancer Diploma. This dual certification empowers them to pursue professional ballet careers or continue their academic pursuits.

With over two decades of ballet and academic excellence, our academy has nurtured numerous accomplished ballet dancers and professionals, leveraging their training to make significant contributions in both the dance community and academia.

Victoria International Ballet Academy has taught me and many others the beautiful art form of ballet, and gave us amazing opportunities on a real live stage. If you want your children to learn and gain great experience in Ballet, this school is highly recommended.
Eyal Makarashvilli | Student
Both my girls have been attending this ballet school for 8-10 years. The training is classical following the Vaganova syllabus. They have been lucky enough to have performed in some wonderful classics with this School, such as Cinderella, Nutcracker, Sleeping Beauty, and Les Sylphides. Excellent training!
Lisa Thalassinos | Parents
My 3-year-old daughter is now enrolled in the third season at Victoria Ballet Academy. The Once Upon a Princess program was a great introduction to the school, its amazing teachers and the world of ballet in general. This year we’re lucky to have Ms. Mironova herself taking the little ones under her wing and showing them real ballet discipline. We love the instruction quality, the cozy atmosphere and the personal approach and highly recommend the school to kids of all ages.
Alina Chernin| Parents
You have to love dancing to stick to it. It gives you nothing back, no manuscripts to store away, no paintings to show on walls and maybe hang in museums, no poems to be printed and sold, nothing but that single fleeting moment when you feel alive.
