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 cultivate in our students what Mr. Daukayev gained in his professional training: discipline, respect, and love of the art of ballet.
Where to Start
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.
New students must be assessed by a teacher in a designated class prior to enrollment. Teachers will take age, abilities, and maturity into account when assigning a level to a new student. Once a student’s level has been determined, you may enroll your child online.
Our school teaches Russian style classical ballet that places emphasis on discipline, respect, and self-improvement. We believe practicing ballet routinely is the only way to gain benefit from it, which is why we require signing up for full semesters and encourage students attend multiple classes a week (depending on level).
