The most successful school in Cyprus - Vania Vrondi Russian Professional Art School

Hello everybody,

Vania Vrondi’s School is a little bit different. It is the only one that continuously succeed to bring parents, children and teachers together into one purpose. Professional evolution. A lesson does not stop immediately after the time is finished. Vania Vrondi is preoccupied to give children a reason for practice, for learning, to become better, a reason to dream. As the Russian Professional Art School in Cyprus is meant to pursue its results through the Art Devotion Performing and Creative Center, a nonprofit organization meant to help artists to reach their main goal: The Stage!

Vania Vrondi started the school in 1998 by introducing Cyprus into the marvelous Art of Classical Russian Ballet.  Being graduated of one of the most prestigious ballet schools in Russia:  Classical Ballet and Choreography at MA University of Moscow GITIS she devoted herself into teaching Vaganova ballet method to all children passionate of the classical ballet. And there are not so many Ballet schools in Cyprus that dears to do so as this requires more serious work, more passionate desire for dance and why not an open ear to one of the most beautifully classical pieces of music.

Children responded by joining the Ballet classes with desire to learn, practice as real professional ballet dancers.  Here we can mention just a few of the International Competitions won by Vania's students:

Finals of International Ballet Competition in Luxemburg – Dimitra Theodorou.
Finals of the World Dance Competition-American Youth Grand Prix ( New York, USA ) –Varvara Bortsova.
Finals of Cyprus Ballet Competition –Elisabeth Kiriakou.
3rd Place International Dance Competiton - Greece, Athens – Alexandra Sebastiano.
2nd place International Dance Competition - Greece, Athens – Mila Pavlovich.

Award Cyprus Children Art Competition – Loren Vrondi.
3rd Place International Dance Competition -Hellas , Greece - Suha El Feghali.
4th Place International Dance Competition -Hellas , Greece - Alina Nastachenko.

Vania did not stop dreaming and she decided that her students want and deserve much more. She is the only one that introduces a Ballet Intensive Training Summer School Program in Cyprus with Teachers from Bolshoi Theater for students starting 4 years old to adults. All passionate ballet lovers joined these classes benefit by the lessons of the Experienced Russian Teachers!

Besides these tours children or adults alike can enjoy as well the Candle Making Workshop and Local Products Tasting.

Beecome a Beekeeper for a Day” it is already a successful adventure for all small guests and also for the Chief of the bees Mr. Costas Stylianou who got the taste of the honey from his godfather during the 1990s, but admits that there have been many improvements in beekeeping practices since then. He promised that his passion will become ours as well, after we will find out about how to spot the Bee Queen and the Drones, observe the Bee Workers during their work, browse through his Honey and Pollen storerooms, see the eggs insight the cells and learn how important organization is for the welfare of these social insects as taking care of these little insects is not that easy likes it seems to be.
Every season, the Bee Heaven in Vavla brings new and different excitement activities at the hives so you have to be prepared to visit them more than once! If it is August… it is Honey harvesting; March&April - New swamps making; Beeswax isolation in September; Raw honey bottling from September to November; Creation of new frames for the hives in winter months!

You will definitely walk away with a better understanding of the importance of honey bees and why their survival is so important, and see firsthand why bees aren’t near as scary as many of us think!
The Eco Tours – Trekking or Collection of wild greens and herbs will be taking you on a different route. Getting away from the Beee’ Buzzzzzz sounds on the quiet protected area of Lefkara-Kato Drys. You will love the amazing scenery of the beautiful trek, you will be able to observe birds, trough professional binoculars. Every season will bring you different species to see and of course completely different scenery. This trekking tour is suitable for children starting 10 years old with a wild passion for nature, mountains and birds. Ecophysis will be there to help them with the stories and knowledge about the most amazing and interesting facts!

The Collection of wild greens and herbs has already proved to captivate the entire life of Mrs. Georgia Shoshilou, The Director of G.S ECOPHYSIS LTD.  Can this captivate yours as well? Her favorite hobbies as a child were outdoor picnics and searching for wild mushrooms in the fields with friends and family. At the age of eighteen, she decided to study Biological Science at University of Patras  –  Greece, and afterwards she specialized in Wildlife, Biodiversity and Ecosystem Health at the University of Edinburgh - Scotland. It seems already easier but will you be able to recognize carobs, acerola fruits, terebinth fruits for crunchy pies, wild small pears or juicy strawberry tree fruits? Most probably with her help you will end up with your entire lesson learned! This Tour is recommended for school age children starting 10 years old.

Candle Making Workshop will introduce to all children the marvelous world of the Natural Beeswax aroma candles. Forget all about the synthetic and toxic smell of the supermarket products and check how you can make your own candle made of natural ingredients. These candles are made from 100% pure beeswax, without any chemicals, ecological and nontoxic! They can purify the air, they are hypo allergic and help people with seasonal allergies or asthma. These candles have a pleasant natural smell from honey and the nectar of flowers and melt slower than the common candles without any smoke.

It is a workshop were kids will learn something new, different and parents will enjoy the benefits of their results!

Bricks4Kidz Lego Playground - where kids can discover the benefits of intelligent playing

The No. 1 enrichment program in the world now in Cyprus!!!

Hello everybody,

It's called structured block play, and it's what happens when children try to recreate a construction by consulting a model or blueprint. Kids must analyze what they see, perceive the parts that make up the whole, and figure out how the parts relate to each other. To be really successful, kids also need to think quantitatively, and be able to rotate geometric shapes in the mind’s eye. But it can also be free, imaginative playing with Lego Bricks. Where? At Bricks4Kidz, the First Lego Creativity Center in Cyprus!

Three floors filled with hundreds of thousands of Lego bricks for many hours of entertaining for boys and girls from 2 to 15 years old. Kids Fun in Cyprus discovered this magnificent place where children can spend a wonderful time together with their parents or under the supervision of qualified teachers using the drop off program, a unique system that can be found only here.

We loved Bricks4Kidz Playground, as it is a place where children can go and enjoy lots of interesting activities, spend quality educational and fun time with their friends, and celebrate in a different way their most amazing Birthday. The Centre is loaded with lots of Legos in 3 floors.

Building houses, towers, castles or playing with cars on the most entertaining Lego Racing Track will make a solid base for later fun to come. Learning about shapes, numbers and colors never been that easy. Parents can get involved as well, into this amazing discovery and beneficial learning process or they can use the only available drop off service in Limassol for only €9.00/child for 3 hours. (Service available only for children over 4 years old).

What does it mean? Parents can come let the children to play for the desired amount of time and use this personal free time by themselves. Kids will be supervised and entertained by the teachers of Bricks4Kidz Lego Creativity Center.

For bigger children, Bricks4Kidz is prepared to welcome them with large tables filled with so many construction bricks, a special place with hundreds of mosaic models to get inspired – The Mosaic Creator Station, a special room for Mine Craft and a special room for Lego Friends Karaoke, Lego Racers for the best created Lego cars, Ninjago station, 3D modeling stations, Technic Lego station with motorized models, and of course let’s not forget about the Arts and Crafts station.
