Above is a video of Natalia Makarova working at the barre. This training is, of course, the excellent Vaganova method that was taught so beautifully at the Kirov School. My teacher (Studied under Pushkin, Nureyev and Baryshnikov’s teacher) was also taught just as well, a principal dancer at the Kirov Ballet, and taught pas de deux and classical ballet at the Kirov School as well. If any one is interested in this beautiful training he and his wife are holding a summer intensive and you can find more information about it on this page: https://www.facebook.com/NYBISI2015?fref=ts
