Elena Glurdjidze was born in Tbilisi, Georgia and trained at the prestigious Vaganova Academy in St-Petersburg. In 2002 Elena joined English National Ballet as a Principal ballerina and was promoted in 2007 to Lead Principal ballerina. Following her retirement from dancing professionally, Elena and fellow Vaganova Academy graduate Olga Semenova embarked upon an Internationally acclaimed Easter and Summer Intensive programme. In 2017, they created Masters of Ballet Academy, a brand new Vocational style ballet school based on the Vaganova Method of ballet training.

Olga trained as a professional ballet dancer at St.Petersburg's prestigious Vaganova Ballet Academy. After her ballet career, she completed a four years professional teaching/coaching course at the Vaganova Ballet Academy and was awarded the PDTC Diploma with Distinction and MA ( Hons). Olga is our Artistic Director, alongside Elena Glurjidze. She is the most highly regarded Character tutor in the UK, being a guest teacher at different schools (in the UK and abroad).

Our goal is for the students to benefit from the course as much as possible. The Artistic Directors will place them into specific groups to achieve the maximum benefit for each student and the group as a whole. The decision is based on the student's ability, suitability for the group, training requirements, and age.
Assignments to groups must be accepted by the students and their parents/guardians. The Artistic Directors can make any changes during the course at their sole discretion.
All students will receive a Certificate of Completion, signed by the teachers.
On Saturday 6th of August, parents will be able to observe students' work at the Gala Performance.
