Exchange between the Vaganova Ballet Academy and Palucca University of Dance

Teachers and students of the Vaganova Ballet Academy will be guests of Palucca University of Dance (Dresden, Germany) within the framework of the International cultural project "Russian seasons" in Germany from 5 to 11 October, 2019. 

Palucca Hochschule für Tanz Dresden

Agrippina Vaganova, as a teacher of the Leningrad school of ballet, in 1934 developed clearly defined and highly detailed teaching method and repertoire. The former Imperial School of Ballet now bears her name and this method is taught world-wide and forms the basis of many ballet training Institutions. As Vaganova said, she wrote a guide based upon her teachings, but that it is also to be adapted and evolved in the hands of Teachers, over time.  

Grete Palucca founded her school of dance in Germany in 1925. She taught a "new artistic dance", each individual is encouraged to find their own voice through dance. Now the only independent Dance University in Germany is named after Palucca, and its curriculum is now based upon the commonalities between ballet (including Vaganova method), contemporary and improvisation.

How is the Vaganova Method evolving and what are the priorities of the Vaganova Academy today?  How is the work to “break down the barriers” between ballet, contemporary and improvisation at Palucca evolving?  How are such approaches complimentary and what influence can they have on each other?

These are the themes of the Exchange and it will be explored through both Practical dance classes and Theoretical Discussions over the course of the week.

During the week, there will be ballet, classical variations, contemporary and improvisation classes with students from both the Vaganova Ballet Academy and the Palucca University of Dance participating, taught by Teachers from both Institutions, including Principal of the Vaganova Ballet Academy Nikolai Tsiskaridze on October, 7th.

Round Table Discussions for the Pedagogical Teams will take place and a Class Concert Performance will round out the week. On the 10th of October students of the Vaganova Ballet Academy will show a Suite from the ballet "Fairy Doll", a Classic Pas de deux choreographed by Fethon Miozzi and a Dance of shells from the Scene " Sea-Bottom Kingdom"of the ballet "The Little Humpbacked Horse".

Exchanges between the Vaganova Ballet Academy and the Palucca University of Dance Dresden have a long-established history, going back to many Summer Schools in Dresden in the DDR times with reciprocate visits of Palucca and students from Dresden going to Saint Petersburg and we are very looking forward to reviving this tradition through this new activity.

The visit of teachers and students to Germany will be supported by the Ministry of culture of Russia in honor of the Centenary of the "Russian seasons".
