Founded in 1990, the Kirov Academy of Ballet is the epitome of world-class ballet training. The school prepares students to become the next generation of classically trained ballet dancers through the principles and aesthetics of the Vaganova Method of Classical Ballet taught at the Vaganova Choreographic Institute in St. Petersburg, Russia.
Concurrently, students pursue a multi-faceted academic program including the core subjects and the arts, each furthering the objectives to build a solid educational foundation, and to create, cultivate, and prepare the student for life as a professional artist. Each year, the Kirov Academy places more than 75% of its graduates with professional dance companies around the world, while other graduates choose to further their education at universities with prestigious dance programs.
