The RBA Vaganova Method


Our ballet programs, founded on the Vaganova method and crafted by Meiyi Li, the first Singaporean to train full-time at the Bolshoi Ballet Academy, offer a comprehensive curriculum for serious dancers and children alike. These programs, available through group and private lessons, help dancers perfect their technique and artistry, and nurture a love of ballet with patient coaching and small class sizes. 


Interest-based group ballet classes for students who dance 1-2 times weekly. Through our nurturing classes and performance opportunities, children of all levels and ages will experience the beauty and artistry of classical ballet.

Ages: 4 and up

Claire’s passion and enthusiasm for ballet has always been fuelled by her love to dance to any form of music. However, her regular ballet lesson was insufficient to develop her as a dancer on the competitive stage and this upset her and affected her confidence level when it comes to dancing. 

Ms Meiyi’s classes are able to combine classical ballet musicality and rigour with originality in utilising Claire’s flexibility to trigger her passion for ballet. Claire is now able to differentiate how her posture, turnout and positions enable her to achieve a better presentation during her performance. 

Claire’s transformation from a normal ballet student to a competitor in the International Arts Festival Ballet competition in just 3 months with a Bronze medal to show for, has been nothing but an amazing journey. We are extremely lucky and grateful to have found Ms Meiyi and her budding dance school.
