About:

The Vaganova Academy of Russian Ballet is a school of classical ballet in St Petersburg, Russia. Established in 1738 during the reign of Empress Anna, the academy was known as the Imperial Ballet School until the Soviet era, when, after a brief hiatus, the school was re-established as the Leningrad State Choreographic Institute. In 1957, the school was renamed in honor of the pedagogue Agrippina Vaganova, who cultivated the method of classical ballet training that has been taught there since the late 1920s. Many of the world's leading ballet schools have adopted elements of the Vaganova method into their own training.

The Vaganova Academy is the associate school of the Mariinsky Ballet, one of the world's leading ballet companies. Students of the school have found employment with ballet and contemporary companies worldwide, such as the Bolshoi Ballet, The Royal Ballet, American Ballet Theatre and the Mikhailovsky Ballet.

VTS is a school for both those looking for serious training to progress to vocational college and those who enjoy dance and want to have fantastic opportunities.

My daughter has been with Claire since she was 5 and has had great training and amazing opportunities to perform.

I would recommend VTS to anyone that is looking for a school that nurtures and feels like a real family.

My daughter has been a student at Valentine Theatre School for 6 months. During this period she has been given excellent tuition to help to improve her technique, balance and physical health. I would recommend this school to any parent who is considering a dance school for their child.
