Primas-in-Training

The Bolshoi and Mariinsky may be the familiar names in the West, but the Vaganova Ballet Academy is where the great dancers for both companies (Balanchine and Bary­shnikov included) were trained. To this day it re­­mains a mostly private and very exclusive dance school. But trips to the legendary establishment's museum, with its fascinating collection of memorabilia—slippers and costumes, drawings and photo­graphs signed by, or belonging to, the greats—can be arranged by special appointment. At 2 Rossi Ulitsa; 7-812/110-4760; vaganova.ru.
