Academy of International Ballet

The Academy of International Ballet offers the finest ballet and dance training in the tri-state area! Classes in Creative Movement, Pre-Ballet, Advanced and Intermediate Ballet, Character, Jazz, and Modern Dance. Classes for toddler thru adult and beginner thru professional. Competition training.

The school is under the direction of Master Instructor Denis Gronostayskiy, joined by Ballet Mistress, Anastasia Babayeva. Both are graduates of the Bolshoi Ballet Academy, Moscow, Russia, esteemed as the finest in ballet training throughout the world and known to produce many of the strongest and most talented dancers. Both have danced professionally and taught master classes throughout Europe, Japan, and the United States. Gronostayskiy has been recognized as Artist of Distinction in the U.S. Babayeva is also on faculty as Master Instructor at the University of the Arts, Philadelphia, PA, and has received Teacher of Distinction and Outstanding Teacher Awards from associations such as the American Ballet Competition and the Youth America Grand Prix.

Students have the unique opportunity to study the Vaganova syllabus, as taught at the Bolshoi. The Vaganova method is a solid dance curriculum systemized by Agrippina Vaganova, one of the most important dance teachers of the twentieth century. Vaganova’s system of teaching spread throughout the former Soviet Union and, eventually, throughout the world when her book, Basic Principles of Classical Dance, became the curriculum of master teachers in England, Germany, France, America, Spain, and the Netherlands.

This strong technical foundation of classical ballet not only creates the ballet artist but also gives a student of jazz, modern or hip-hop the greatest opportunity for success. Our jazz, modern, and hip-hop instructors have studied under some of the finest instructors in their field and continue to dance professionally. Our youngest students are introduced to proper technique in a nurturing environment that develops their love of dance in a format that stresses fun, posture, body positions, and playground movements that become dance steps. Our advanced students have received top awards at international competitions, received dance scholarships to universities, and have gone on to work with other professional companies.
