Ohio Conservatory of Ballet

The Ohio Conservatory of Ballet is one of the most highly prestigious ballet schools in Ohio. It was opened in 2000 by couple Inna Stabrova and Dmitriy Tuboltsev. In 2017 Ohio Conservatory of Ballet was awarded Outstanding School Award from Youth America Grand Prix. Both Inna and Dmitriy trained in Russia where they graduated from the renowned State Vaganova Ballet Academy in St. Petersburg. They have both performed in numerous principal roles all over the world, and since their start of teaching, have trained many students to go on to college levels and professional levels of dance.

Our students come from Cleveland, Akron, Green, Wooster, Canton, Ashland and Alliance Ohio to take classes from outstanding faculty that holds diploma of master degree in teaching dance: classical Ballet, pointe, character dance, baroque dance, partnering and more. During the summer session we have students from out of state taking our summer courses in Vaganova method.
