KAB and GW Program

The Kirov Academy of Ballet of Washington, DC and The George Washington University (GW) are pleased to announce its new joint artistic and educational program for senior and pre-professional students of the Kirov Academy who are in good academic standing. The program allows students to apply to register in GW undergraduate Theater and Dance courses during the summer, fall and spring terms. Participants will be enrolled on a non-degree basis directly with GW University and taught by the GW faculty on the premises of Kirov Academy. Students will receive college credits that can be later applied to a higher education university degree such as Bachelor of Fine Arts (BFA).


The program is designed to combine the acclaimed, rigorous classical ballet training of Kirov Academy with the comprehensive liberal arts education that allows students to discover themselves as future artists and professionals through courses such as Dance History, Stage Design, Modern Dance, Intro to Acting, Dance Kinesiology and others.


Enrollment for the 2016-2017 school year is now open to Kirov Academy students via GW website at http://nondegree.gwu.edu/kirov-academy-students for the following course: Theatrical Makeup Design. For assistance with registration, please contact GW and Kirov faculty member, Irina Wunder at iwunder@gwu.edu. Upon successful completion of this course, students will receive three (3) college credits that can be later transferred to a higher education degree program.


Tuition rates are payable upon registration directly to GW University. GW published rate is $1430 per credit. Kirov Academy students enjoy 30% discount of the published rate this summer.
