We promote to inspire and educate our students through the joy of dance! This class is geared toward Adults with little or no ballet training and toward those students who would like to fill the gaps in their knowledge of classical technique that is incorporated in our traditional CORE BARRE™ classes. The focus is on teaching students correct posture and placement, ballet positions and combinations of steps that explore efficient movement values. Our Adult classes are a physical workout, based on the traditional Vaganova technique, resulting in body toning and core strengthening.
Students develop grace, lyricism, coordination, focus and strength. These benefits and the simple joy of dance remain a positive influence forever.
The Vaganova Method
Generally considered the universal standard of excellence in ballet. In the early 1900′s Russian ballerina Agrippina Vaganova developed a ballet teaching method built on the traditions of the Russian school. The technique results in more lyrical upper body movements and increased strength, precision and agility. Madame Vaganova taught the method in ST. Petersburg, Russia, at the Kirov Theatre school, which now bears her name. The style is sometimes referred to as Kirov training. The Vaganova method is practised throughout the world in leading ballet institutions.
