About The Society of Russian Ballet

Rewarding to teach and a joy to dance 

The Society of Russian Ballet is a dance education and training organization that promotes healthy technical and artistic training utilizing the Vaganova Method. The Society offers examinations for students and assists teachers with professional development and certification.

The teachings of Agrippina Vaganova and Russian styling are at the heart of our syllabus, which has been carefully developed to ensure a steady, careful technical and artistic progression from one level to the next. Not only is it rewarding to teach it is a joy to dance and encourages artistic creativity for teachers and students alike.

Examinations, a growth experience

Examinations give encouragement and a sense of achievement to all students. For teachers, examinations present proof of expertise and an opportunity for feedback. For the parents they provide reassurance and an indication of their child’s progress. For the Society they aid in our promotion of high quality dance training.

Our respected team of examiners travel across Canada to individual schools examining students in the syllabus at every level. Following every examination session, successful candidates are awarded certificates and issued comment sheets providing them with detailed individualized feedback. Also as part of the examining process teachers receive individualized feedback to assist with their ongoing development.
