Artistic Director/Ballet Master
Mr. Makarov graduated from the prestigious Kharkiv Ballet School of Ukraine in 1970, and began a 17 year career as a male soloist with VIRSKY, Ukraine's National Dance Company.
For the past 30 years, he has been heavily sought after worldwide as an artistic director and choreographer. This is mainly in part to his choreographic genius, and excellence as a ballet master/director. He is well recognized and known for his fierce passion that fuels his students and dancers to excel and promote their talent.
While Mr. Makarov is one of the world’s leading experts in Ukrainian folk-ballet and ‘Vaganova’ ballet instruction, we are lucky to have him call Calgary home.
