The School of the Russian Ballet Jewels embraces the best traditions of classical dance teaching methods.
Students get exposed to the diversity of the Russian ballet heritage and discover the best contemporary choreography innovations.
This is a completely unique project, not only for Geneva, but also for the whole of Switzerland.
Vladimir Ippolitov studied at the St. Petersburg Academy of Russian ballet named after A. Vaganova. He worked with the most prestigious international ballet companies: the Mariinsky Theatre in St. Petersburg, the Grand Theatre of Geneva and the National Opera of Bordeaux, where he was a soloist. Vladimir regularly produces unique events, which allow him to share his love for classical and modern ballet drawing audiences both locally and internationally.
Under Vladimir’s leadership, the Geneva Dance Events company regularly organizes best-in-class gala concerts featuring international ballet stars from the most renowned theatres (next Russian Ballet Jewels III gala concert is scheduled for November 21st 2019 at Theatre du Leman).
The opening of the first School of Russian Ballet Jewels in Switzerland is a new milestone in Geneva’s cultural life.
