A small habit learned as a child stays with you for the rest of your life,
and the arts education received in childhood leaves a huge impact on a person's life.
Not all of us want to be ballerinas, but how beautiful would it be if we could learn correctly from the start, learn politely, learn passionately, think independently, and develop a passion for helping and caring for each other? We are composed of teachers with the best experience in the field of ballet as educators, choreographers and directors with combined experience that spans over 100 years. Now, with a humble attitude and faithfulness to the essence, we want to show that the same opportunity for ballet can be given to not just certain people, but for all those who have learned ballet scientifically and systematically, by helping children learn correct postures and movements, and by helping them realize for themselves. Among these, there are definitely children who will become famous ballet dancers. However, I am sure that they will grow into wonderful leaders in other fields as well, with a lot of experience, training, and habits gained through ballet education. Education is a 100-year plan. Victoria Ballet will work together for the next generation who will be responsible for the next 100 years.
VB Education Process
*Elite Courses are only available upon auditions
In these classes we establish a strong foundation of technique and understanding of ballet. Mastering the basics prepares the students to layer in more complex elements of musicality and coordination, while maintaining clean and beautiful form.
Intensive classes build upon an already established foundation of basic technique and knowledge. Geared for the student on track to be a professional, we work on refining form and expanding technique to meet the demands of current repertoire, choreography, and physicality. We achieve these improvements through following a structured and cohesive syllabus.
Being a part of the competition team gives young dancers a taste of what it is like to be in a ballet company through the rehearsal and performance process. It is an opportunity for further refinement and thoughtfulness through working on variations and challenging repertoire. This process also builds the stamina and confidence necessary for performing beautifully and competently.
Victoria Ballet Youth Company
VBYC provides an unparalleled opportunity for committed and gifted students to elevate their craft. Our mission is to enrich their performance repertoire through meticulous rehearsals and immersive coaching sessions. While maintaining the rigorous nature of the program, we also prioritize cultivating the students' deep appreciation and reverence for the art of ballet.
For our adult classes we aim to empower the dancers through their understanding of form and movement. We methodically build technique in a joyful and uplifting environment that can make anyone fall in love with ballet! It is a transformative experience for both mind and body that connects people to themselves in a profound way.

I graduated from Korea National Sport University in Seoul, South Korea, majored in Korean Dance. After that, I studied in University of Roehampton in London, England, and got MFA (Master of Fine Arts) degree there in 2011. The program of study was MFA Choreography. Dance practices (Ballet, Contemporary dance, Improvisation, Making performances, Technical and teaching skills) and theory of academics dance were required to complete MFA choreography course, thus throughout this course and making different kinds of projects and researching, I could gain ways of seeing of dance performance and new dance knowledge. In particular, I really enjoyed learning ballet with the ballet professor Toby Bennett who was a member of the Royal Ballet company in the UK.
I have 15 years of teaching experience from kids to adults. I opened my own dance institution in Seoul in South Korea in my 20s before I went to England, and used to run that for more than 10 years including the time I was away due to my study in London. I kept supporting and helping the dream and vision of my students there. Thankfully, students who wanted go to top dance schools had achieved good results in dance entrance exam and dance competition.
