The Vaganova program of study is set up to be taught beginning at the age of 10, 6 days a week, 5-6 hours a day, for 8-9 years of study. These are selected children, and there have been many "experimentations" of the implementation inside and outside. In Russia, children study general physical fitness and stretching to prepare them for the rigorous study of the Vaganova methodology for 2-3 years before studying ballet professionally.

Pre-ballet classes at Vaganova Academy consist of strengthening and stretching exercises, dancing steps (skips, gliding steps, polkas, etc.), and general music and coordination exercises. As stated, the program of study in the first year of training in Vaganova is prolonged and complex; it takes a great deal of maturity and physical strength to handle the demands when taught as it has been thought out and structured. This means a considerable commitment by the child, the family, and the teacher.

About Us and our team. The reason we have launched "Learn Ballet Online" is because Ballet is a very complex and difficult art form. It is hard to understand until you start executing it. It is a multidimensional activity, involving physical, emotional and psychological elements. We do not believe that you can learn Ballet movements online, but you can learn the theory and comprehend how those movements are executed. Muscle memory can be a blessing and a curse - if you take a couple classes and learn incorrect technique, it will be very difficult to change! But, if you can understand the proper placement of your limbs and muscles, with the help of your teacher, your mind and body can guide you in the right direction.

No matter what style of dance you do, it is critical to train your body properly and practice correct technique to avoid injury. There is no instant gratification. Ballet is a process, a journey that you must be ready to take.

Whether your goal is to become a professional dancer, or to practice for your own enjoyment, taking our courses will offer you an opportunity to learn in-depth execution of classical steps. These steps are explained in accordance to a syllabus. Each lesson is crafted with instructions for execution of specific ballet combinations.
