Slavin Nadal School Of Ballet

fullsizeoutput_1d

Our History

A cultural treasure of the Austin community, this ballet academy has been providing the finest classical ballet training for over 25 years. Prior to opening the Slavin Nadal School of Ballet in 1989, Eugene Slavin and Alexandra Nadal were the founders of Ballet Austin and the Ballet Austin Academy (1983), and served as Artistic Directors of Ballet Austin and its predecessors – Austin Civic Ballet and Academy – for 17 years (1972–1989). They were principal dancers with the Ballet Russe de Monte Carlo and the Royal Winnipeg Ballet before their arrival in Austin in 1972. The Slavins chose their longtime protégé, Joseph Nygren Cox, and his wife, Kimberly Nygren Cox, to succeed them as directors of the school.

Our Students

Students who have studied ballet exclusively at Slavin Nadal School of Ballet have transitioned directly into professional careers with excellent ballet companies – an important factor in the assessment of any serious ballet school. Many students have had fulfilling careers as corps de ballet, soloists and principal dancers with ballet companies in the United States and Europe, as well as starring on Broadway and London’s West End. Most significant, however, are the hundreds of students of all levels and ages whose lives have been enriched by dance and all that it can give the body and spirit.

Our Mission and Guiding Belief

We strive to create a warm and inclusive learning environment that allows our students to develop the skills, artistry, and discipline to reach their full potential as dancers and to be enriched by the many benefits classical ballet training has to offer.

At Slavin Nadal School of Ballet, we believe that whether it is a young child being introduced to the pleasures of classical ballet, a student with aspirations for a professional career, or a person of any age who is looking for fun and satisfying way to keep fit, it is possible to combine enjoyment with challenge, the everlasting appreciation of an art form, and the highest quality training.
