Vaganova Methodology

The Vaganova method is a ballet technique and training system created by dancer Agrippina Vaganova. It combines elements of the traditional French style with the athleticism of the Italian Cecchetti technique. The method focuses on involving the whole body in every movement with equal attention given to the upper body, legs and feet. BVC’s Ballet Master, Andrea Bayne, is level A certified by the Bolshoi Ballet Teacher Certification Program which is based on the Vaganova training method.
