The ARB Difference

Since our establishment in 2006, The Academy of Russian Ballet has quickly become recognized as one of the preeminent ballet schools in Northern Virginia. Our students have won awards at Youth America Grand Prix sixteen years in a row, have performed at International Festivals, and are being accepted to top National and International ballet programs including the Bolshoi Ballet Academy in Moscow, the John Cranko School in Germany, and the Royal Ballet School in London. Our Directors, Yuri and Jasmine Nikitenko are three-time recipients of the "Outstanding Teacher Award" at Youth America Grand Prix in 2019, 2020, 2021 and 2022.

ARB provides its students with a complete classical training program instructed by a renowned, international faculty. Our students are provided with ample professional performance experience in which they perform most roles and share the stage with international guest artists. They are educated on not just technical levels but the historical and cultural aspects of the art. We truly believe everyone can dance and benefit from studying in a strong program whether or not they have professional aspirations.
