About SVOI

Our history

SVOI Dance School teaches ballet for children ages 18 months to 18 years and also offers fitness ballet classes for adults. SVOI Dance School was created by former ballet artist Elena Mitreva in 2016. The main purpose of creating the school was gathering people with the same values, goals and attitudes to dance and socialising. The name SVOI describes precisely the motto of the school, translating from Russian as “kin”. Building strong relationships between the staff, children and parents is the fundamental for the school and we believe it is an important part of the general ballet education.

SVOI is a school where you can take first steps into the world of dance and it helps to process you onto further studies. SVOI uses well known Vaganova’s Ballet Education Method as a basic core and also follows IDTA Ballet Syllabus. SVOI provides Grade Ballet Exams under the world wide recognisable UK ballet IDT Association for those, who have strong abilities and ambitions to become a professional dancer.

SVOI is open to everyone who shows interest to ballet and willing to become a member of amazing SVOI team at any time.

Vaganova Method
The Vaganova Method is a ballet technique and training system devised by the Russian dancer and pedagogue Agrippina Vaganova (1879-1951). It is acknowledged all over the world as the foremost training syllabus of the classical ballet.

The Method is an extraordinary system that permits to develop the knowledge of how one’s body should be used in order to dance with expression, yet without injuries, like the best Russian dancers do. It is the foremost technique used by Mikhail Baryshnikov, Rudolph Nureyev, Natalia Makarova, Galina Ulanova, Maya Plisetskaya, and other stars of Russian classical ballet.
