Format: Paperback
Ever since I have been dancing, it is the first time that I have come across a book which describes the tehniques of the vaganova method in detail. Every one who is an associate with ballet will benefit from that book. This official textbook of the vaganova school covering the basic concepts to the most complicated excercises. It is an outstanding reference work and a stimulating handbook.

This book provides detailed description of classic ballet technique. It's a good companion to Vera Kostrovitskaya's "100 lessons in classical ballet". Unfortunately it has very few illustrations.

For a used book it is in beautiful condition! I am very pleased with it. Also it arrived way earlier than expected, which was a great surprise. I couldn't wait to get it because it was a book my professor recommended to me to add to my collection. For what little I have gotten to read of it so far, he was absolutely right! As someone who has fallen in love with the Vaganova method, I am excited to go through this book in its entirety, and have already read some very insightful and intriguing things. i look forward to furthering my knowledge with this book. Wonderful buy!

This book provides the details of how to learn Vaganova Technique. This book is very instructional provideing proper head and eye movements with the hand and the proper progession of a movement and the details of what to do and what not to do when executing the technique. The book also provides musical information on how to progress with a movement. A wealth of information and a must for any teacher who is teaching Russian Style ballet.
