The Vaganova method is a ballet technique and training system devised by Russian dancer, Agrippina Vaganova (1879-1951.) 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. Vagonava believed that this approach increases consciousness of the body, thus creating a harmony of movement and greater expressive range.
