Camp Description: The Classical Ballet Intensive is total immersion in the study of Classical Ballet. Vaganova is the Russian School of Classical Ballet. WSPA offers a pure Russian approach to Ballet Technique in this summer intensive,
Agrippa Vaganova perfected and cultivated this form of teaching classical ballet and turned it into a viable syllabus.The method fuses elements of traditional French style from the romantic era with the athleticism and virtuosity of Italian Cecchetti technique.] The training system is designed to involve the whole body in every movement, with equal attention paid to the upper body, legs and feet. Vaganova believed that this approach increases consciousness of the body, thus creating a harmony of movement and greater expressive range.
The focus of the intensive will be building technical skills and artistry. Our goal is to push the dancer past their current level.
The Intensive will aggressively teach: Ballet, Pointe, Men's Technique, Partnering,Character work, Dance History, Dance Vocabulary, Costuming, Repertory and Overview of the Great Ballets. Jazz and Modern
