Winter Ballet Master Class Workshop - NYC - February 20-24, 2017
We will hold a five-day winter workshop in New York City at the studios of Manhattan Movement Arts. This boot camp in Vaganova technique includes a chance to learn from a student of Agrippina Vaganova herself. The legendary Irina Kolpakova, former Mariinsky Ballet star who has coached the likes of Maria Kochetkova, Isabella Boylston and Paloma Herrera at American Ballet Theatre, will lead variations classes following two-hour master classes in Vaganova ballet technique and pointe work. Working with Irina Kolpakova raises your artistry and understanding of classical ballet to a new level, in particular through her focus on musicality and artistic expression in addition to technique. This session is a chance to assess your training and reboot your motivation as you head into the spring semester.
Classes will be held at Manhattan Movement & Arts Center, 248 West 60th St, NY, NY.
Monday, February 20, thru Wednesday, February, 22 from Noon to 4 PM.
Thursday, February 23, and Friday, February 24, from 4 to 8 PM.
