Boys'/Men's Program

Director Nikolai Kabaniaev has a proven track record of developing young male students into professional dancers. Nikolai graduated from the famed Vaganova Academy in St. Petersburg, Russia, and went on to dance with the Kirov/Mariinsky Ballet where he worked with some of the world's finest teachers, directors, and choreographers. He is dedicated to passing on his vast knowledge and expertise in classical ballet to each of his students.

Students receive individualized attention, in small classroom settings, with precise attention to detail. In addition to a variety of classes, boys will also receive valuable experience while performing in CBSF's productions.
