2019 / 2020 Season Begins August 5th - June 2020

THE VAGANOVA METHOD

Vaganova method is the most effective training in classical ballet and the only training method  that is developed to be injury free.

The Vaganova method is a ballet technique and training system devised by the Russian dancer and pedagogue Agrippina Vaganova (1879–1951). It was derived from the teachings of the Premier Maitre de Ballet Marius Petipa, throughout the late 19th century. It was Agrippa Vaganova who perfected and cultivated this form of teaching classical ballet and turned it into a viable syllabus.[1] The method fuses elements of traditional French style from the romantic era with the athleticism and virtuosity of Italian Cecchetti technique. The training system is designed to involve the whole body in every movement, with equal attention paid to the upper body, legs and feet. Vaganova believed that this approach increases consciousness of the body, thus creating a harmony of movement and greater expressive range.  

 

We have gone many steps further incorporating modern understanding of human anatomy and physiology to minimize dance related injuries while maximizing strength, endurance and flexibility.

 

The Dance Training at Russian Ballet Orlando has been designed into levels appropriate to the age, maturity and dance expertise of each student. Students will elevate to higher levels at the conclusion of each year, in a systematic and progressive manner.

 

We produce well-rounded, versatile artists that will thrive in today’s dance environment.
