History[ edit ] Upon graduating from the Imperial Ballet School in Saint Petersburg inAgrippina Vaganova began dancing with the school's associated professional company, the Imperial Russian Ballet.
She retired from dancing in to pursue a teaching career and in returned as a teacher at the school, which had been renamed the Leningrad Choreographic School.
During the 30 years she spent teaching at the Leningrad Choreographic School, Vaganova developed a ballet technique that combined elements of French, Italian, and earlier Russian technique, and a training method to teach the technique.
Tenets of the training method included development of lower back strength and arm plasticity, and the strength, flexibility and endurance required for ballet, and it incorporated a detailed instruction process that specified when to teach each topic and how long to teach it.
InVaganova wrote "Fundamentals of the Classical Dance", which remains a standard textbook for the instruction of ballet technique. InVaganova authored a book titled "The Foundation For Dance" more commonly known as "Basic Principles of Russian Classical Dance" that outlined her training method and ballet technique.
Following Vaganova's death inher teaching method was preserved by instructors such as Vera Kostrovitskaya and Vera Volkova. Today the Vaganova method is the most widely used ballet teaching method in Russiaand it is also used in Europe and North America. Characteristics[ edit ] The Vaganova training method relies on the following principle: That all training can be encompassed and displayed in the course of one grand pas de deux.
This can be understood as a codified technical approach when taught by qualified teachers following the syllabus closely. The syllabus is founded upon the idea that when a dancer is introduced to a step, he or she will have developed the correct strength in foundation in order for their steps and movements to be successful.
It is understood that this strength-building requires time and consistent hard work. Terminology used in the Vaganova method often differs from other methods, and may also vary by locale. Students at Vaganova-based pre-professional schools are expected to also take courses in choreography and pedagogy.
Frequently, students who do not pass exams for their grade in ballet are redirected into training as choreographers and teachers. This is unique to Vaganova training,[ citation needed ] as other schools focus solely on a future in dancing.The Vaganova method is a ballet technique and training system devised by the Russian dancer and pedagogue Agrippina Vaganova (–).
It was derived from the teachings of the Premier Maitre de Ballet, Marius Petipa, throughout the late 19th century. Russian software aimed at teaching algorithms and programming such as MicroMir, Algoritmica, and Robotlandia were also common.
Besides being written specifically for teaching, these had the additional advantage of taking into account the specifics of the Russian educational system.
