The Ugly Duckling Ballet

Victoria Mironova (Evdokimova) is a graduate of the Vaganova Ballet Academy. Victoria graduated as a ballerina in 1979, after studying with the famous Natalia Dudinskaya, who was the favorite student of Agrippina Vaganova, the creator of the Vaganova ballet syllabus.

Victoria performed nearly all ballet repertoires during her 21 years with the Mikhailovsky (Mussorgsky) Opera and Ballet Theatre in St. Petersburg, Russia. This experience has granted her the knowledge and insight into the Russian Imperial Ballet Style (St.Petersburg) and now allows her to create ballet productions in the elite classical style that is so sought after in North America.

Victoria also graduated from the Vaganova Ballet Academy as a choreographer (1995). Upon moving to Canada, Victoria founded Victoria International Ballet Academy with the purpose of educating professional dancers so that they can join her ballet company. Some of our graduates currently perform for Victoria Ballet Company.

Victoria Ballet Company is the only Canadian company that produces real classical ballet, for both adults and children. Real ballet for the whole family.

Mission Statement

The mission of Victoria Ballet Company is to create high quality classical ballet shows for adults and children and to promote the understanding and appreciation of classical arts.
