Vaganova ballet, developed in Russia, uses the traditional ballet barre and focuses on classical and lyrical choreography. It incorporates stretches and exercises for the abdomen and core that are based on yoga and Pilates moves. See the class schedule.
Dance Visions is an extension of the nonprofit organization Dance Actions, Inc., which helps nurture artistic expression in and around Palo Alto. At the Dance Visions studio, skilled instructors guide adults and children ages 9 and up through dance lessons that focus on classical Vaganova ballet.
Vicky is a great instructor! She provides a fun and challenging classical ballet class to dancers of all experience levels. Taught in the Vaganova method, the class begins with some floor barre exercises to warm up the core (similar to Pilates strengthening), continues with some classical barre exercises, and then finishes with some center work. Every class seems well-rounded and provides a great workout. Ballet technique can be generally intimidating, but Vicky is extremely patient and encouraging to her students. Keep going to class and you'll see improvement over time!
