Vladimir Issaev, Choreographer and Ballet Master proudly presents this first DVD of The Vaganova Ballet Academy, featuring an authentic Vaganova Class at the prestigious Vaganova Ballet Academy in Saint Petersburg Russia.
Artistic Director, Mme. Altynay Asylmuratova, formerly prima ballerina of the Mariinsky Ballet (Kirov) introduces the class by highlighting the strong influence that Ballet Mistress Agrippina Vaganova produced in the Dance Method utilized by the greatest dancers in Ballet History.
The class is performed in the classroom where Agrippina Vaganova taught and Marius Petipa created his most magnificent ballets. This DVD is not interactive but rather a video stream with no chapters. It is subtitled and filmed in Russia in a documentary style. The only choreography created by Vaganova, a pas de deux for the ballet "Diana & Actaeon" is presented at the end of the film.
