Borovansky Syllabus

The Australian Institute of Classical Dance (AICD) is the custodian of the Borovansky Syllabus.  To teach the Borovansky Syllabus, you must be a current member of the AICD and you must be accredited by the AICD.  

The Borovansky syllabus is a combination of European and Russian methods of training. It takes students through formal levels from pre-primary through to solo seal examinations in classical ballet.

It is a national and internationally recognised syllabus which progresses the students through each level with high technical precision while also transitioning them with dance quality and artistry.
