Student of Vaganova Academy Summer Online Intensive 2020
Hello, this is Olivia Van Stone. Thank for the certificate from the intensive, I’m so grateful that I got to be apart of the intensive for 5 weeks. The Russian to English translating was new to me but it turned out to work great and I love how the teachers corrected us individually as if we were doing an in-person intensive. Every class I joined, I learned and improved. From the very beginning of the intensive to now, my flexibility and turnout has improved a great amount. In addition, it was amazing to work with different teachers, I learned very much from each one of them. It was so cool to be corrected by teachers that teach at the Vaganova Academy in Saint Petersburg! The extra contemporary, floor barre, stretching, and talks with dancers were great and refreshing after ballet and technique. The five weeks of intensive I did, were the best five weeks of the summer! Despite that it had to be a virtual intensive, it was still really effective and I learned so much. Thank you very much Asia Lukmanova, all of the amazing teachers, and Russian Masters Ballet for having this amazing intensive, I enjoyed it so much and I would love to come back for another one!
