“VIBA’s Summer Intensive Program helped our daughter build knowledge and acquire the technical tools that made her mature in her dance work. We highly recommend Victoria International BAllet Academy and especially the summer course to all our dance friends and relatives, and we hope you have more visits from Mexico!”

Sabina Gonzalez

"VIBA’s summer intensive program provides competitive training that allows students to greatly improve their skills and grow in a nurturing environment. I have made such amazing friends in the years I've attended this summer intensive, many of whom have gone on to build careers in dance with the strong background Vaganova training has given them. Getting to train with expert teachers alongside a diverse group of highly motivated ballet students has been wonderful and I highly recommend it to anyone aiming to improve themselves and their technique! "


“I have been dancing at Victoria Ballet Academy for many years now. This studio always offers high quality ballet training with their classes, as well as with their annual summer intensive. From my personal experiences, the program is exciting, yet challenging. It has helped me to improve my technique, flexibility, and allowed me to do what I love almost everyday for 3 weeks. You get the chance to learn choreography for a small ballet performance at the end of the intensive which has always been my favourite part. Even if you do not have much ballet training, the summer intensive will allow you to grow as a dancer and without a doubt, you will see improvement everyday.”
