Vera Volkova, (born 1904, St. Petersburg, Russia—died May 5, 1975, Copenhagen, Den.), Soviet ballet teacher who greatly influenced Western dance training.

Volkova studied at the Imperial Ballet Academy and later at Volynsky’s Russian Choreographic School in Petrograd (now St. Petersburg) under Agrippina Vaganova. Volkova became an expert of the Vaganova school of technique and moved to Shanghai to dance and teach with the George Goncharov Company (1929).

In 1936 Volkova moved to London, where she was asked to instruct at the Sadler’s Wells Ballet School (1943–50). She later became the artistic adviser to the Royal Danish Ballet, as well as one of its school’s foremost teachers.
