Denis About us_edited.jpg

Offering Ballet School Artists and Novice Dancers the opportunity to receive world-class Ballet training from Professional Teachers and renowned Artists  Nina Ananiashvili  &  Denis Matvienko

This intensive week-long program is designed to provide valuable knowledge in the field of both Classical and Duo dance, allowing participants to refine their technique and acting skills alongside two experienced Artists who have performed their Classical repertoire across different versions and interpretations. Nina and Denis have worked a lifetime with world-renowned Theatres and understand what it takes to succeed in Ballet

What’s unique about our Summer Intensive MasterClass is that we offer a combination of four legendary Ballet Schools, including the Moscow State Ballet School (Bolshoi Theatre), the Vaganova Ballet Academy of Russia (Mariinsky Theatre), the Tbilisi State School of Ballet Art named after V.Chebukiani, and the Kiev State Choreographic School

Our instructors have worked with Theatres such as the American Ballet (New York), the Royal Ballet (London), the Opera Garnier (Paris), the New National Theatre in Tokyo, and Theatre las Calos (Milan), and have performed productions by internationally known choreographers such as Balanchine, Robbins, and Sir William McMillan, among others. Nina and Denis are excited to share their wealth of experience with all Participants

The program is equally also a great opportunity for Ballet Couples to enhance their Duet skills through specialized Duet Classes with Nina and Denis, who have repeatedly performed together on one stage. Participants will develop much greater self-awareness, a far deeper understanding of personal capabilities, strengths, areas needing improvement, and unique attributes as a solid dancer, growing in confidence throughout the program

On the last MasterClass day, all Participants will learn the staging from Denis and perform together with NdB Theatre and world-famous Artists on one stage, creating an unforgettable experience!
