The Academy is more than a hotbed for talent: it is also a school of life in which students are taught the importance of responsibility and are primed for forging their own careers. The multi-disciplinary teaching includes dance classes (retaining the high quality of traditional teaching methods while exposing the Academy to various different influences from contemporary dance), artistic training and academic classes adapted to meet the needs of the students’ different nationalities. In order to fulfil this ambitious aim, the Academy boasts teaching staff comprised of professors and artists with international careers behind them. Renowned for the excellence of its teaching, the Princess Grace Academy has become a partner to prestigious institutions such as the Prix de Lausanne, where some of its students are very well represented. This is a school in which students blossom into cultured, well-rounded individuals with a sense of curiosity – as well as accomplished dancers.
