Pursuit of excellence in the art of ballet

Stepanova Ballet Academy

 Toronto International Ballet Theatre is the resident company of Stepanova Ballet Academy Inc.

Under the artistic direction of Mme. Tatiana Stepanova (Graduate of Bolshoi Ballet Academy in Moscow, Prima Ballerina and People’s Artist of Ukraine) Stepanova Ballet Academy has quickly been placed among the premier ballet/dance schools in Ontario, Canada. Students get a unique opportunity to learn from highly gifted professional instructors, and are also afforded the unique opportunity to take part in originally choreographed, professional productions. Stepanova Ballet Academy has been proud to host the following productions: Cinderella, Coppelia, Chippolino, Pinocchio, and Thumbelina.

Stepanova Ballet Academy proudly utilizes the prestigious Russian Vaganova Method style of instruction. This precise technique and system of instruction promotes the development of lower back strength, arm plasticity, and the requisite strength, flexibility and endurance for ballet. These benefits can be seen in the promotion of better posture, sculpting and toning the body, flexibility and creative expression.

At Stepanova Ballet Academy, students can obtain all the benefits of Ballet and Dance, through the highest level of teaching standards set by our Artistic Director, Mme. Tatiana Stepanova, and her premiere instructors. Through safe, yet rigorous teaching, students will come to realize their full potential.
