A little history ...

The Academy was founded in 1975, in line with the wish of Princess Grace and Prince Rainier III to create a high-level dance school in the Principality of Monaco.  For many years, the school was directed by Marika Besobrasova and is internationally renowned.

Linkages with the Ballets de Monte-Carlo

In 2009, following a proposal by Jean-Christophe Maillot, H.R.H. The Princess of Hanover appointed Luca Masala Artistic Director of Teaching and Pedagogy.  The aim was to increase the Academy's pre-professional dimension.  

A school of dance and life ...

The Academy is not just a place where talent is developed, but also a school of life, whose aim is to empower students and prepare them to craft their own careers.  The multidisciplinary teaching offered includes dance courses (maintaining the quality of classical teaching while opening up the Academy to the various influences of contemporary dance), artistic training and scholastic courses that are adapted to suit various nationalities.
