Dance Division

In addition to their academic education, students may choose a focus on any of our arts departments such as dance, vocal, music, or visual arts.

“The arts are an essential element of education, just like reading, writing, and arithmetic…music, dance, painting, and theater are all keys that unlock profound human understanding and accomplishment.”

William Bennett

Arts and Science Academy of Canada has one of the strongest classical ballet programs in Canada. ASAC’s Dance Division is registered under the name Victoria International Ballet Academy (link). This is one of the only schools in Canada that grants students both the Ontario Secondary School Diploma and the Artist of Ballet Diploma* upon graduation. We strictly follow the Vaganova methodology of teaching. This superior method is known to be the foundation for many other styles of classical dance.

After receiving an Artist of Ballet Diploma, students may pursue a professional career in dance. The professional ballet program takes 8 years to complete.

We take great pride in our roots and our history. Our teachers have learned first hand from legendary ballet masters of the world-renowned Vaganova Ballet Academy in St. Petersburg, Russia.

Today, they pass down their invaluable knowledge to the future generation of ballet stars by bringing the most effective ballet methodology to our North American and international community.
