A&A BALLET is devoted to training in strong, versatile dance technique, as well as the development of PERSONALITY, INDEPENDENCE, and ARTISTRY in young dancers. Founded and led by internationally acclaimed artists and former Founding Artistic Directors of the Joffrey Academy and Joffrey Studio Company, Anna Reznik and Alexei Kremnev, A&A BALLET offers a wide variety of classes, professional performance opportunities, private instruction, choreography, and training for dancers ranging in age from three to adults.
A&A BALLET’s creative vision has been developed through the eyes of artists and reflects the international experience of Anna Reznik and Alexei Kremnev as artists, choreographers, directors, and teachers. They have been studying, performing, educating, choreographing, and directing for more than 35 years, boasting numerous accolades throughout their careers, including the personal and professional successes of countless students.
Reznik and Kremnev have a reputation for producing strong, dynamic, sophisticated dancers, built on knowledge of the syllabus they have been creating since 1997, based primarily on purity and a clear structure of the Russian school, but with a deep understanding of the current and most progressive approaches to dance and movement. A&A BALLET provides students with various backgrounds and levels the opportunity to pursue world-class ballet training. With former students currently dancing with companies such as The Joffrey Ballet, New York City Ballet, American Ballet Theatre, Staatsoper Berlin, Dresden Semperoper, Nederlands Dans Theater and numerous others, Reznik and Kremnev’s A&A BALLET offers the necessary experience to create artists of all levels, from professional dancers to those with a deep appreciation for dance of all forms.
In the words of Anna and Alexei: We always have been moved by INNOVATION and TRADITION. Our demanding XXI Century requires us to experiment with new visual forms and to be creative and daring. But there is also a legacy of our past we should carefully pass onto our future generations. It is only through an understanding of our past that we will progress forward and succeed in achieving our goals to AMAZE, EDUCATE, and ENTERTAIN our audiences.
