Dear Friends,

 

Welcome to the official site of the Vaganova  Ballet Academy!

Founded in 1738 to the decree of  Empress Anna  the I  of Russia, the Imperial Ballet  School  became the country’s  first educational establishment  to provide professional  ballet  training. The Vaganova Ballet Academy is now approaching  its 275th Anniversary.  During these years  the School graduated  a galaxy of renowned  performers and choreographers:  Anna Pavlova, Vatslav  Nijinsky, George Balanchin,  Rudolf Nureyev, Mikhail Baryshnikov, Natalia Makarova, Oleg Vinogradov, Yuri Grigorovich, Farukh Ruzimatov, Altynay Asylmuratova, Konstantin Zaklinsky,  Uliana Lopatkina, Diana Vishneva, Svetlana Zakharova  to name just a few.
The Method of Ballet training and education  was created  by Professor Agrippina Y. Vaganova  -  ballet teacher and professor at the Academy for thirty years,  from 1921 till 1951.
In years to come the  School  inherited the Vaganova Method  as basic ballet educational system and  further  developed  ballet  training  art  through  the  effort  and talent of its staff and students.
The Vaganova  Ballet Academy graduates successfully perform  in the world’s leading  companies and more students  come to The Academy  every year to join  the fascinating  world of ballet.
