CONFIRMED SOFIA GUMEROVA AS PROFESSOR DURING THE WINTER COURSE.

We present another great addition to Saint Petersburg Ballet Experience. The wonderful Sofia Gumerova, teacher of the Vaganova Academy and former principal dancer at Mariinsky, will give a master class in the emblematic classrooms of the Academy exclusively for our students. This is great news not only because Gumerova is a talented teacher, but because at the same time she remains active as a soloist dancer at the Mariinsky Theatre. By combining the two facets she can offer a vision of what is currently required in companies. At the same time it is a luxury to get to know this internationally recognized artist closely.

Sofia was born in Moscow and trained at the Vaganova Academy, where she graduated in 1995. That same year she joined the of Mariinsky Ballet Theatre, where she has developed her career since then, climbing to become the principal dancer of one of the most important companies in the world. She has toured several countries and has interpreted the roles of the great works of the classical repertoire and multiple current creations. For several years she has been training future artists at the Vaganova Academy, but she continues to dance as a soloist with the Mariinsky Theatre.
