Alekseevna Ballet Academy is a dance school that focus on Russian Vaganova Ballet Technique. Vaganova training is the purest form of teaching classical ballet. It is a thorough and methodical technique, which allows the dancer to learn the proper use of muscles with control, strength and grace, without introducing tension or overuse of the wrong muscles. Vaganova Ballet Technique was developed by Agrippina Vaganova.
Vaganova’s system aimed at teaching students to “dance with the whole body.” The systematic design of the classes carefully teaches the technique without room for error or bad habits to develop. The exercises naturally progress and are easily executed by teaching the correct muscles to respond to the movement. The technique naturally allows the dancer to progress to the next level of movement easily and free of tension or lack of control. The Syllabus moves at an appropriate pace to carefully train the young dancer, which compliments their age and rate of growth, so that by the age of 17, the dancer is properly equipped to go onto further pre-professional study.
