Our Methodology - Vaganova Instruction
Vaganova ballet instruction comprehensively trains dancers as they are taught ballet exercises at the barre and center floor. This training enhances the development of proper ballet technique and enables dancers to progress toward more complex and precise dance combinations and choreography. While the focus of each class is designed for the enjoyment of all dancers, the teaching emphasis maintains a concentration of training in foundational ballet repertoire. Ballet class curriculum, at all levels, is founded on the Vaganova syllabus and is directed at expanding ballet terminology, raising musical awareness, and evolving choreography aptitude.
The Vaganova Academy of Russian Ballet and its unique training method has developed some of the world's most famous ballet dancers and figure skaters.
