Classical ballet is a living tradition, a physical art encompassing an appreciation of art, a visual awareness of line, symmetry as well as the French language in the terminology of ballet. Ballet promotes agility, coordination, strength, grace and an elegant posture a dancer retains throughout their life.
Classical ballet has a logical code of positions, movements and specific exercises fine tuned for over three hundred years to enable the dancer to extend one's limbs, to leap into the air, to balance, to turn to float carried by the music to excel.
About Victoria's Dance & Teaching Experience:
As a teacher and dancer my greatest influence would be that of the pre-revolutionary Russian Classical Ballet.I had the great privilege to study extensively with such great masters as Igor Schwetzoff,
Nicholas Orloff, Nina Stroganova, Vladimir Doukodovsky and George Chaffee. I was Kaleria Fedicheva's last protege. As a teenager I had wonderful contemporary ballet teachers Melissa Hayden, David Howard, Helgi Tommasson, Finis Yung, Patricia Wilde, Sonia Petrova, Wilhelm Burman and Maya Pyleitskaya. While in high school I was on scholarship in the special program at Les Grandes Ballets and later studied at Joffery and American Ballet Theater.
Ballet is a great tapestry of tradition, history, music, choreography, the dancer's physical athletic technique, mental interpretation intertwined with the spiritual deposition of each dancer.
I believe in technique without tears. If a child may be likened to a flower one does not bloom under stress, negativity or tension.
Within the realm of classical ballet I hope to respect our different natures, to leave space for individual growth and precious self expression, to free one's soul through the dance.
