Welcome to Russia Ballet Travel!
My name is Slava Fadeyev. I was born in one of the most beautiful cities in the world -- St. Petersburg, Russia. I come from a ballet family. My mother, brother and myself all attended the famed Vaganova Ballet Academy. My mother, Svetlana Fadeyeva was a principal dancer at the Mikhailovsky Theater, I danced at the Mariinsky (formerly Kirov) Ballet and my younger brother Andrian Fadeyev is a former principal dancer of that company and currently the artistic director of Yacobson Ballet.
In 1995 I was invited by Kirk Peterson, former ABT principal and gifted choreographer, to join the Hartford Ballet and I moved to the USA. I worked for several American companies including The Metropolitan Opera in New York City. I taught at Gelsey Kirkland Academy of Classical Ballet and Eglevsky Ballet from 2011-2015.
I started Fadeyev Ballet in September 2015. Fadeyev Ballet promotes and supports the art of dance through education, performance and outreach on Long Island and to an international audience based on the syllabus of the Vaganova Method of Classical Ballet.
In 2008 I was invited to work with a St. Petersburg tour company where I learned about the travel business. Inspired by this experience, I began organizing my own ballet tours from the USA to Russia.
My vision is to open the world of Russian ballet to everyone! I had always wanted to share the beauty of my hometown with others and my tours gave me this opportunity.
We have been conducting these custom tours for 10 years, providing the best possible Russian Ballet and art experience. Our attention to detail and personal service is unparalleled.
