School of Professional Excellence
Train like a professional.
Using the art & discipline of the Vaganova method,
we help bring out your best in technique, performance & artistry.
Our Ballet Programs
Established by Meiyi Li, the first Singaporean to have trained at the Bolshoi Ballet Academy.
Our programs are based on the 8 levels of the Vaganova method, with clear progression, a comprehensive syllabus and exams. Here at RBA, we believe every dancer and body type is capable of mastering clean and beautiful technique through the Vaganova method, one of the strongest pedagogies in professional ballet. Through its art and discipline, we help bring out every dancer’s best - in technique, artistry and performance.
Many like me (over the past 9 years) have continued with classes at the Russian Ballet academy until today. Despite my lack of strength and flexibility, our instructor, Meiyi is still so passionate and patient with me (and all of us). That makes me want to do better each time and my appreciation for ballet grows too. I see that she’s also great with children and their lines are so beautiful. It’s great having a teacher who is able to understand and communicate with all ages, passionate and able to help each of us learn and enjoy our classes.

100% authentic Russian (Bolshoi) technique. Meiyi is an amazing teacher. She is extremely knowledgeable about not just the ‘how’ but also the ‘why’, and makes the training super effective! I’ve been taking private lessons with her for over a year and she has completely transformed my body and technique. Still can’t believe that we have such pure classical Russian training in Singapore!
