Student of the Vaganova Academy Summer Intensive by Russian Masters, Burgas 2023
The summer intensive in Burgas was very important for me because the teachers that were teaching us, supporting us and sharing their life experiences with us. And these amazing 3 weeks were the most precious time I have ever had. I loved that we had so much time in class to work on our technique and learn so many new things, and get so much attention from the teachers and have corrections that we could work on every day.
Having acting class was one of the most interesting things to explore, because it is very important to manage to express your emotions to the audience and I am so grateful that we had that amazing time to explore and try new things. We also had pas deux de classes, it was a very rare opportunity to learn so much new movement and it was very exciting to dance with a partner.
Also one of the main things that we had was repertoire. It was amazing that I had the chance to learn so many new variations and work on them every day with our incredible teachers and learn to work in a team.
It was my first year staying with everyone in the resident hotel. The organisation was amazing, we had so much fun, we were going to the beach or to the pool to relax after long days of rehearsals, we had days of when we went to different cities or to the mall and we had wonderful time and the hotel was close to NHK so it was easy to go to classes in the morning.
