Vaganova Ballet: What is this?
Vaganova Ballet is a technique that was developed in Russia over 200 years ago and it continues to produce among the finest dancers in the world such as Valdimir Malakhov, Zveltana Zakharova, Olga Smirnova, Rudolf Nureyev,and Mikahil Barishnikov. All children classes are based on the Vaganova Technique and the Royal Academy of England technique.
For contemporary dance classes Vicky combines elements of the Vaganova ballet technique with contemporary dance techniques to help adult dancers reach and maintain their top shape.
All dancers can improve their strength, flexibility, and body control through Ballet technique. The Vaganova Ballet classes taught by Vicky Brey address the needs of dancers who love the art of ballet, contemporary dance, and enjoy to perform for an audience.
Performing on pointe is a goal for many of our young students. Vicky also coaches at a semi-professional level.
Older dancers and beginner dancers also enjoy coming to class to maintain their top shape. Some classes offer the opportunities for participating in choreography and an optional performing groups for the more advance dancers.
Vicky is 56 and continues to be in top shape as a dancer for her age group.
