The Anna Pavlova Foundation founded the Academy of classical Russian ballet in the Hague and Rotterdam in 2014.
The academy is a unique institution, because children start their professional ballet education here from the age of 5-6 (pre-professional - from the age 3-4), and by 10-11 years old, students achieve such success that they can perform the most difficult elements of classical choreography, such as, for example, 32 fouettйs, the golden standard of ballet technique (it’s important to note that not every adult ballerina can do this!)
This school has children of different nationalities - Dutch, Russian, Japanese, Chinese, Polish, Bulgarian, Romanian, American, and others.
During the time since its founding, the school staged and has shown to Dutch spectators such ballet productions for children and adults as: "The Nutcracker", "Snow Queen" "Snow White and the seven dwarfs", and "Swan lake", in a big concert program.
Already more than 30 performances have been shown at various theaters of The Hague, Rotterdam, and Noordwijk.
The School also held 10 charity ballet performances and concerts for nursing homes. Students of the school were on ballet tours in Berlin and Riga, where they performed "Snow Queen" together with students of the Academy of classical Russian ballet from St. Petersburg.
The teachers of the ballet academy are all former dancers of the Bolshoi Ballet Theatre of Moscow and Mariinsky opera and ballet theatre of St. Petersburg, as well as teachers of the Moscow State Academy of Choreography.
