Founded and overseen by Artistic Director, Marat Daukayev, former principal and star of the Kirov Ballet, and winner of Russia’s prestigious “People’s Artist” award, Marat Daukayev School of Ballet strives to instill in our students the discipline, respect and love of the art of ballet in which Mr. Daukayev gained in his professional training.
How We Work
New students are assessed by our teachers and placed in an appropriate level based on their abilities. Placement classes also give parents and students an opportunity to decide whether MDSB is the right school before committing to a full semester of classes.
The school teaches a Russian style classical ballet that places emphasis on discipline, respect and self-improvement. Classes are offered in three semesters: Fall, Spring, and Summer, with a separate Summer Intensive program. We accept both male and female students, ages 3 to 18.
