In addition to Yaroslav’s comprehensive classical ballet training, the Vaganova Academy’s rigorous curriculum included: character dance, mime, stage fighting, acting, ballet history, fencing, stage makeup and piano.

Upon graduation, he was invited to join the prestigious Kirov Ballet of the Mariinsky Theatre, where he danced soloist roles including Giselle, Swan Lake, Walpurgis Night, La Bayadere, Fairy Doll, Legend of Love, Romeo & Juliet, Coppelia, Le Sylphide, Anna Karenina, and The Nutcracker. In 1995, he was invited to join the Hartford Ballet in Connecticut as a Principal Dancer under the artistic direction of Kirk Peterson. Additionally, Yaroslav has danced with the New York Metropolitan Opera, Uralsky Dance Productions, Eglevsky Ballet, Sawnee Ballet Company, and other companies. He has performed internationally on some of the greatest stages in the world.

As a teacher Yaroslav is a meticulous professional skilled in classical ballet, theater, and the performing arts. His fluency in Russian and English enable him to be precise and articulate in communicating ideas. He is accomplished in teaching classical ballet, partnering, pas de deux, character dance, and coaching for performances and competitions.

In 2015, Yaroslav started Fadeyev Ballet Academy which promotes and supports the art of dance through education, performance, and outreach on Long Island, in New York City and to an international audience based on the syllabus of the Vaganova Method of Classical Ballet.
