Vaganova method

The Vaganova method of teaching classical ballet is based on the old Russian school of ballet and teaching of ballet. It was first developed by Madame Agrippina Vaganova[?] (1879-1951) and has been and still is further developed by her followers.

The method aims at precision, strength and agility, and to teaching pupils to dance with their whole bodies instead of isolating the parts of body into mechanical, separate movements. The method is considered excellent, and it is widely in use, being the most common ballet teaching method in Russia and parts of Europe, and popular also in the North America and other parts in the world.
