Unique Teacher Training offered with Summer Intensive

In the words of a past teacher training participant "Today, finding a credible teacher to pass on the Vaganova style is a challenge.
Teachers at OWDF offer systematic analyses on the study of each movement, and their individual approach makes it possible to get
REAL answers to our questions!"
