Sarah Grace Self

Head of Ballet Program / Instructor 

Sarah Grace is a native of Birmingham, Alabama and has been involved in dance for over twenty-five years, Ballet over twenty. She began her training in ballet young and took at Alabama School of Fine Arts as the protégée of the late Dame Sonia Arova, touring quartet partner and friend of Rudolf Nureyev, Erik Bruhn and Stevan Grebel. Arova was the favored guest of Mikhail Baryshnikov, then Director of American Ballet Theatre, on all occasions when she was in New York as she gave his company so many talented dancers.

During college she minored in Dance at Samford University while performing with Arova Contemporary Ballet, a tribute company to Sonia Arova.

After college she found Stevan Grebel, once protégée of Alexander Pushkin (the genius of Vaganova Technique himself) alongside Nureyev and Baryshnikov, and began training Vaganova Technique at his hidden but very esteemed community ballet in Pelham, Alabama. For three years however, she took a break from ballet and invested solely in contemporary and tribal to expand her repertoire.

A few years later Stevan and his wife Debbie invited her to return and during this time while she trained some in Vaganova, he more so taught her to teach it. Having learned that his approach with Vaganova to “making what’s difficult simple” was favored even by George Balanchine and Stevan regularly assisted New York City Ballet alongside Balanchine’s choreography at his request, she knew she had gold to give.

She watched his community ballet perform ballets and parts only professionals attempt because of his simple genius approach to ballet using Vaganova. As such, Sarah Grace is totally convinced of its simple and historical method if dancers will only do the work.
