The Academy of Russian Classical Ballet offers students of all ages, levels and backgrounds a world-class professional ballet education in the Vaganova (Russian) ballet method. The Academy opened in 2004 in Wixom, and added a second location in Ann Arbor the summer of 2019. Our senior instructors have received their Vaganova ballet training from the finest professional institutions in the world, and have all danced in professional ballet companies following graduation. Under the training and guidance provided by the Academy, students study both technique and artistry unique to the Vaganova method, and pursue careers as professional dancers, placement in international ballet academies, university dance programs, or obtain success in many other areas. The Academy’s programs include Children’s Division, Pre-Professional, Adult and Professional Trainee, as well as Academic options. Through the Academy, students of all ages develop skills including artistry, discipline and confidence to help them reach their fullest potential.
The artistic caliber of this educational program and performance is not available anywhere else in the Midwest”
