Teaching

The Vaganova Method

However, Vaganova’s most vital contribution to ballet was her teaching method.

She created her method of ballet at the Kirov (Maryinsky) Theatre and at the Leningrad Choreographic School, now known as the Vaganova Ballet Academy. 

She taught senior students in their final three years of study at the Leningrad  Choreographic Academy. From 1921-1951 when she died.

Teaching

The Vaganova Method

Through the thirty years she spent teaching ballet and pedagogy, Vaganova developed a precise technique and system of instruction.  Vaganova’s system synthesized what she had learned from her masters with her own concepts of the possibilities of movement and technique. The result was a brilliant, clean technique combined with an amplitude of movement and a suppleness of the upper body that are the hallmarks of a  Vaganova dancer.
