From 1999-2000 he taught at the  Seoul Ballet University. Since 2004 - Director of the Yerevan State  Choreographic College.  Fans of Vilen Galstyan's work still remember  the characters he embodied on stage: Spartak - from the ballet of the  same name by Khachaturian (1961), Armen - from "Gayane" Khachaturian  (1974), Albert - from "Giselle" of Adana (1961), Byurat - from  "Eternal idol" E.
