Barbara Ann Hutton School of Ballet

Our Mission at the Barbara Ann Hutton School of Ballet is to provide students with Russian Ballet techniques (Vaganova). We aim to give new students opportunities to learn the techniques of classical ballet, while helping advanced skilled persons to further their technique. Students can be on their way to advancement whether they are young children, teen or adult.

As a dancer and teacher I have had 8 years of schooling and training under the watchful eye of Russian teachers from the Vaganova Institute at the Mariinsky Ballet in St. Petersburg Russia (1982-1990) Kirov Ballet Lenningrad).
