At the Grand Academy, we offer the Vaganova Method—an exceptional training approach that provides opportunities for personal and professional growth, as well as artistic development. Our aim is to help dancers reach their highest potential and enrich their lives through the art of dance.
Our academy has developed a unique and effective training model that utilizes the stages of development within the Vaganova Method to systematically build and nurture professional dancers. The journey begins with Junior Ballet, catering to entry-level students aged 3-15. As they progress, students move on to our Year-Round Pre-Professional program, designed for intermediate to advanced levels (ages 5-15). Finally, the top 12 students in each level have the privilege of joining the Vaganova Professional Academy (ages 10-18).
This approach allows us to focus on each individual dancer, ensuring they develop a strong foundation, proper ballet placement, and a comprehensive skill set. The entry levels concentrate on ballet basics, the Vaganova Preparation stage focuses on ballet skills, and the Vaganova Training stage emphasizes ballet mastery to prepare students for a professional career.
At our academy, we have assembled an exclusive team of Vaganova Trained teachers who are committed to upholding the highest standards of ballet. They preserve the traditions of the Vaganova Method through a systematic and culturally aligned approach.
Our dedication lies in providing the highest standards of professional dance education within a safe and nurturing environment. We are committed to guiding every dancer towards reaching their fullest artistic and technical potential.
