Allegro Ballet Academy is Pittsburgh’s premier ballet studio offering ballet classes in McCandless, Ross Township and surrounding areas. ABA was founded in 2012 by Nurlan Abougaliev, former principal dancer of the Pittsburgh Ballet Theatre and Aygul Abougalieva, former Pittsburgh Ballet Theatre dancer. Both Nurlan and Aygul were classically trained in the Russian Vaganova method and danced professionally at a variety of global companies.
At ABA, we are committed to providing the finest classical ballet training in the Pittsburgh area. Classical ballet is the foundation of all forms of dance. Our mission is to bring the beauty of classical Russian ballet to Pittsburgh students using the Vaganova training techniques. The Vaganova method emphasizes physical strength, flexibility, body placement, artistic expression and produce many ballet greats including Baryshnikov, Nureyev and Zakharova. It is our pleasure at Allegro to impart this special knowledge to our students.
We challenge each individual student in a positive environment in order to make sure students learn correctly and so that they improve as quickly as possible. Our instructors are classically trained professionals who have studied at a variety of top international ballet schools and have performed extensively.
