Apogee Academy

"We are delighted to continue our collaboration with Ken Schneider and the Apogee Foundation. Over the past ten years, this relationship has resulted in much good for our Academy’s participants, facilities and programs, and we look forward to many more years working together to fulfill our shared aim of producing world class performing artists.”
Marina Leonova: Rector of the Bolshoi Ballet Academy, Moscow, Russia

Developing Artistic Excellence

Apogee Academy is a trailblazing set of training programs enabling gifted artists from diverse cultures to achieve their fullest potential. Working with the world's leading specialists, Apogee Academy programs integrate the most successful multi-disciplinary artistic and educational methodologies of both East and West to create optimized environments empowering gifted artists to reach the apogee of human and artistic excellence. Apogee Academy programs welcome Apogee Awards laureates from around the world and are carefully coordinated with Apogee Artists events. Thus Apogee Academy becomes the central, transformational component in the Foundation's virtuous circle of excellence.

In order to enrich and expand Apogee's historically fruitful tradition of support for the development of artistic excellence, the Foundation is preparing to create a set of permanent institutions that will enable the planet's most gifted emerging artists to achieve their greatest potential together, and in so doing to transform the world's awareness and experience of creative excellence.

Apogee's Fusion Programs are a trailblazing set of projects designed to enable world class performing artists from both Eastern and Western cultures to expand their artistic awareness and expressive skills through and beyond each others' traditional and modern modes of thought and performance -- and thereby to empower them to achieve new forms and new levels of human excellence on the world stage.
