Marion Chaeff founded Pacific Ballet Academy after dancing professionally. Chaeff received teacher's training in Vienna, Austria and is accredited to teach the Bolshoi School (Moscow Choreographic School) syllabus. She received her professional dance training at American Ballet Theatre in New York under world renowned teachers, including Alexandra Danilova, Igor Schwezoff, Anatole Vilzak, Ludmilla Schollar, Yurek Lazovsky and Valentina Pereyaslavec. She directed her own school and company in Oakland, New Jersey and has served as Artistic Director of the San Jose Ballet Association.
When she established a small studio locally in 1985 she shared her deep love of the classical ballet as enrollment grew over the next 30 years. Her daughter, Rima Chaeff, joined the school as co-Director. She completed three years in the professional division of San Francisco Ballet School and danced in their Nutcracker and Showcase performances. She appeared as soloist with San Jose Dance Theatre and toured Europe with Ballet San Jose as Principal dancer.
