Vaganova Academy have compiled the list of VITP graduates

Every year about thirty International trainees from different countries of the world receive their professional training at the Vaganova Academy. After successfully passing the audition, they are accepted for an international internship program and can study for one to four years (sometimes even longer).

The international training program incorporates classical dance, Pas de Deux, special disciplines (Character, History dance, Acting Skills), individual classes in ballet classical heritage with dancers and teachers of the Mariinsky Theater, as well as learning Russian language.

International trainees study in the same groups with Russian students, participate in Gala concerts and performances of the Academy, including Graduation concerts.

The Vaganova International training program (VITP) is fee-based.

The time spent in the rehearsal halls of the Academy yields its results - after completing their internship at the Academy, the young dancers join various International and Russian ballet companies. We have put together a far from complete list of VITP graduates of the Academy with an indication of their current employment.

Vaganova Ballet Academy has been included in Forbes rating of the 100 best Russian universities again

Vaganova Ballet Academy has been included in Forbes rating of the 100 best Russian universities for the third time.

The first ranking was published in 2018. Now the Russian universities are evaluated on the following metrics: "The quality of education" with a new a parameter "Teacher quality"; "Graduate quality" is a metric based on Forbes' own research; the Forbes Factor which reflects the elitism of the university.

VaganovaAcademy was not evaluated on the second metric because the research was based on surveys of 127 major companies, theaters and ballet companies were not included in the number of them.

4 creative universities were included in the rating but choreographic art is represented only by our Academy.
