ABOUT VAGANOVA BALLET & OUR TEACHING /

Down through its 250 years of history, Russian ballet technique has remained one of the strongest pedagogy in the world, being recognised for its high level of technique and artistry. We care deeply for clean foundational technique, placement and control, because incorrect technique creates poor posture and lines, as well as increases the risk of injuries. Good training should be easily accessible to everyone!
