“My daughter had the pleasure of having Ciprian as her ballet teacher while we were visiting Vancouver for three weeks during the summer of 2019.
He is a passionate, knowledgeable and inspiring Vaganova teacher with high standards – but also instills a broader understanding of music, history and biology/physics related to ballet for his students. Despite the distance, he has continued to mentor and keep in touch as his dedication is genuine.
In 2020, my daughter successfully auditioned for:
The Royal Ballet Spring Intensive
The Royal Ballet Junior Associates
The Vaganova Academy Summer Online Intensive Program
The Bolshoi Academy Summer Intensive Program”

“I give Mr. Ciprian 10 stars!!
Both my daughter and I have been learning ballet for over a year now. The training is classical following the Vaganova syllabus. The professionalism of Mr. Ciprian continues to be nothing but excellent! The way he explains dance concepts to adults shows that he is a phenomenal dance master.
Mr. Ciprian is so knowledgeable about not only ballet but about its history and how to find yourself in the dance. Mr. Ciprian’s dance program is about music, art, self-expression, discipline, patience, literacy, numeracy and pretty much the world around us! He has a subtle way of incorporating all these aspects into the dance program.
Mr. Ciprian provides a caring and supportive environment where everyone helps one another to succeed. His ballet class is so much fun and that’s why my daughter couldn’t wait ballet class every day. The ballet training has done so much for my daughter’s physical and intellectual development, and for her confidence!
During the difficult times of the COVID-19 period, Mr. Ciprian volunteered to privately clean my daughter’s Lyrical jazz routine even when it’s out of his responsibility.
My daughter ended up winning first place in both competitions. We are very thankful to Mr.Ciprian.
We love this school so much that this year my daughter will enrol in Pro dance PTP program.
The teacher to child ratio is much more reasonable than most dance studios in the area. There is more engagement, conversation and one on one support.
I know my daughter will continue to enjoy her experience with her teachers and her learnings.
I cannot think of a better environment to enroll a child who has a love for dance and education. We highly recommend Pro Dance and wouldn’t see ourselves anywhere else!
With Mr. Ciprian guidance and rigorous training, children will become not only better dancers but artistic souls confident in their abilities!”

“Ciprian is an expert dance teacher and a retired professional dancer. Trained in the Vaganova method, his technical instructions are excellent, and he’s coached many top dancers from the lower mainland.
I’ve tried many other ballet classes around Vancouver, and this is hands-down the best. He’s funny and personable, and gives each student individual attention and corrections. I’ve learned more from him in a couple of sessions than whole semesters from others. I highly recommend his classes to anyone who wants to improve their dancing.”
