Russian Academy of Ballet Alafaya

Looking for a ballet studio for your daughter or son that provides both superior training and opportunities to showcase their skills in numerous professional ballet productions each year? Look no further!

The Russian Academy of Ballet Alafaya studio is a family owned and operated school that has served the Central Florida area for over 17 years, providing professional ballet training for all ages and incredible performance opportunities for students with quality ballet productions with Ballet Fedotov, a pre-professional Ballet Company.  Students ages 3 and up receive classic Vaganova ballet instruction from world-renowned Ballet Mistress Irina Depler, Ballet Master and Choreographer Vadim Fedotov, and other highly trained teachers.

Irina Depler, Executive Artistic Director, began her training at the Kiev Choreographic School in the former Soviet Union and graduated from the prestigious Moscow Institute of Theater art with a gold medal, the highest honor one can receive upon graduation.  Irina danced for over 20 years with the National Theater of Ballet and Opera of the Ukraine as principal dancer in numerous ballets, including Chopiniana, Carmen, Don Juan, Seven Beauties and Cinderella among others.  She has also served as Ballet Mistress of many prestigious schools and companies worldwide.

Vadim Fedotov is an internationally recognized Ballet Master, Artistic Director and Choreographer.  For over 20 years, Vadim performed as principal dancer with the National Opera and Ballet of the Ukraine, dancing leading roles in prominent performances such as Swan Lake, Giselle, Don Quixote and The Nutcracker. Vadim has taught at many prestigious institutions, including The National Theater of Ballet and Opera in Kiev, Ukraine, National Theatre of Serbia and the Dance Academy of Ukraine and was the General Director of the Chamber of Ballet in Kiev. He has produced numerous films (musicals) in the Ukraine and has been awarded multiple professional and state honors, including Honor of the Supreme Soviet Council of Ukraine 1985, Honor Artist of Ukraine and Laureate international choreographer for competitions in Moscow and Kiev.

Before opening their company in Orlando in 2000, both Fedotov and Depler worked for the Southern Ballet Theatre as Ballet Masters and Principal Teachers. In 2001, they created the nonprofit ballet company, Ballet Fedotov, Inc.  In 2003, Fedotov and Depler became the Artistic Director and Executive Director for the Orlando City Ballet and began two ballet studios. After outgrowing one studio, they opened a brand-new 4,000 sq. ft. studio in the Waterford Lakes/Eastwood/Stoneybrook/Avalon Park area, right in the heart of East Orlando.

PARENT TESTIMONIALS:

“I am so excited that I finally found a studio that allows my daughter to train three days a week at age 6! It has also given her the ability to be onstage year-round in big productions, building stage confidence and the ability to see her hard work pay off. The instructors are so sweet and treat all the girls as if they were family.”

“I can’t believe my daughter was able to perform in an annual production of The Nutcracker beginning when she was just 4! This has been so wonderful for her to become very comfortable onstage at such a young age. Students and Moms are so supportive, helping with hair or any other needs.”
