Dance Division

In addition to their academic education, students enjoy Visual and Performing Arts subjects such as Dance, Music, Painting, Drawing, etc. 

“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

Rotman Arts and Science School has one of the strongest classical ballet programs in Canada. RASS Dance Division is registered under the name Victoria International Ballet Academy. This is one of the only schools in Canada that grants students both the Ontario Secondary School Diploma and the Ballet Dancer 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 their Ballet Dancer 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 generations of ballet stars by bringing the most effective ballet methodology to our North American and international community.
