Our Story

Novikova ballet is a ballet studio in Moscow founded by Olga and Alexandra, two dance lovers. 

Ballet, Olga fell into it when she was 5. At the age of 10, she took her mum to the Frunzensakaya metro station where the Bolshoi ballet school is located, and told her: "Remember this way, it's the one I'll take every day next year." She was right, she left the Bolshoi school's audition room the following year with the famous "ticket" for admission.
Olga has followed the classical path of excellence in Russia: Bolshoi ballet school and then she obtained a state diploma as a dance teacher. She is currently doing a PhD in classical dance pedagogy. She has many years of experience as a performer in various companies that led her to perform on prestigious stages such as the Kremlin.

Alexandra was born in Moscow, but has spent most of her life in France. She started ballet at the age of 7 and has never stopped since. After studying at the Saint-Nazaire Dance Conservatory and in studios in Moscow, she did engineering studies in France, graduated from the Ecole Nationale Supérieure de Géologie de Nancy and the Institut Français du Pétrole and is currently doing a master degree in ballet teaching in Moscow.
