Victoria Mironova (Evdokimova) is a graduate of the Vaganova Ballet Academy. The first time, she graduated as a ballerina (1979). Victoria was a student of the famous Natalia Dudinskaya, who in her turn was the favorite student of Agrippina Vaganova, the creator of the Vaganova ballet syllabus.
Victoria has practiced 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.
The second time, Victoria graduated from the Vaganova Ballet Academy as a choreographer (1995). Upon moving to Canada, Victoria had founded the 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 the Victoria Ballet Company.
We believe that Victoria Ballet is the only Canadian company that produces real classical ballets, both for adults and children – real ballet for the whole family.
