Eldar

2018 summer intensives will take place at the Vaganova Academy of Russian Ballet in St. Petersburg, Russia.

In August 2015 Ballet Heritage proudly presented its inaugural Summer Academy in the illustrious home of classical ballet, St. Petersburg, Russia.  Students arrived both nervous and excited at what lay ahead.  The opportunity to be taught by some of the most illustrious ballet stars the world has ever seen made it hard for them to relax, but they need not have worried, as all of Ballet Heritage's teachers are used to excited students, which they quickly put at their ease.  The atmosphere is always friendly, but there is an expectation which has to be fulfilled and that is that the students work hard, taking every piece of knowledge and skill home with them at the end of the Summer Academy.  The inaugural students did not let us, or themselves, down.  They worked hard, they listened, they asked questions, they gave a lot of respect to their teachers and in return their teachers gave their all.   They were delighted with their students and praised them or making the most of their time with Ballet Heritage.  

We promised the Summer Academy would be an annual event, featuring an intensive training programme for students from the age of 12, who currently attend ballet schools and we are delighted to now be organizing our third Summer Academy.

Many of our teachers will return again, plus a few new faces will join us.  We hope that we will be able to say the same about the student dancers and student teachers, we hope to see familiar faces whilst welcoming new ones too.  

Once again a cultural programme will be included alongside the ballet programme, introducing participants to the cultural life and sights of St. Petersburg, with further optional events available.  We are also offering the 'teach the teachers' programme.

The teachers who will be providing these classes are all teachers who have received their teaching diplomas as teachers at the Academy of Russian Ballet named after A.Y. Vaganova. They will be providing a three-week intensive course where current teachers of classical ballet from outside Russia will have an opportunity to be introduced to the Vaganova system of teaching, or will build on the knowledge they already have. All participants will receive a certificate showing they have undertaken a course on the Vaganova method.

By popular demand in the summer of 2017 we will offer two sessions of the programme and both sessions will take place in St. Petersburg, Russia. The dates of our first session July 9 - 28 and the second session July 30 - August 18. To participate in the dancers’ programme students must be at least 12 years old and for the teachers’ programme, at least 18 years old. Programmes for both ballet students and ballet teachers will run side by side and will take place six days per week. The format for the programme will be that classes will commence after breakfast, will break for lunch and continue with 1-2 classes after lunch.

Following this, the inclusive cultural programme will take place in the afternoons and the evenings will be at leisure for students and teachers to pursue their own programmes. However, further optional excursions to the theatre, museums, etc., will be available via Ballet Heritage.

Students will be required to obtain a recommendation from their current ballet school, on the form supplied and must obtain full medical insurance to cover the time of their stay in Russia, at their own expense. Supporting materials to assist with visa applications will be supplied by Ballet Heritage.

Irina Kolpakova
technique & variations

One of the 20th centuries most talented ballerinas, Irina Kolpakova studied under one of ballet’s most prestigious teachers, founder of the Vaganova method in St. Petersburg, the wonderful Agrippina Vaganova herself.

Irina is the embodiment of all that ballet wishes to be. Her dance was distinguished by the ideal form, crystal purity of lines, striking lightness. Her style of dance mirrored perfectly her personality and disposition. It has been said that ‘her perfect art is calm, without any pathos and strain, convincing us that the ideals of kindness, love, beauty are eternal’.

The virtuosity that Irina Kolpakova displayed often surpassed other performers and her interpretations of major roles of the classical repertoire, including Giselle, Raymonda, La Sylphide, Masha (Clara) in the Nutcracker, Princess Aurora in Sleeping Beauty, were all danced with an unparalleled understanding of Petipa’s style and Tchaikovsky’s music which all contributed to her quick rise to Prima Ballerina.

Her talents continued to blossom when she took on new roles with contemporary choreographers, such as Yuri Grigorovich, Igor Belsky, Leonid Yakobson, Natalia Kasatkina and Vladimir Vasilyev, creating roles from Shirin in the Legend of Love and Katerina in the Stone Flower, to Eve in the Creation of the World.

In more recent times, Irina has shared her unique experience with young dancers, as ballet mistress and coach at the Kirov (Mariinsky) Theatre, the American Ballet Theatre (ABT) and Ballet Internationale. Throughout her career this exceptionally talented dancer has won many prizes and accolades, amongst them the prestigious People’s Artist of the USSR and the highest award of recognition by her government. On the 2nd session Irina Kolpakova will advise the Technique & Variations classes by Natalia Raldygina.

Vladilen Semenov
technique & variations

A graduate of Leningrad Choreographic School (now the Vaganova Academy) from the class of Vladimir Ponomarev, from 1950 to 1972 Vladlen as a Principal dancer at the Kirov (Mariinsky) Theatre. He was known as a slender dancer with a proud bearing and elegant manner. His light and airy jumps much admired, leading to him becoming one of the main performers of the roles of noble heroes. Vladlen was taller than the norm at the time, but this became an absolute advantage when he danced duets, making the ballerina look especially fragile and feminine. He used these natural qualities to form an expressive, emotional and inspired performance, which was noted and praised by the ballet critics at the time.

A classical dancer of the purest academic standard and a ‘pas de deux’ master, he became the desired partner of many ballerinas. However, it was Irina Kolpakova, who captured his heart and not only became his dancing partner, but his wife too. Their duets were acclaimed across Russia, as well as abroad. Vladlen began teaching at the Vaganova Academy whilst still at the peak of his dance career and this continued until 1998 when he moved to the USA to join Ballet Internationale as ballet master and coach. Vladilen Semenov talents were recognised in his homeland and he was awarded People’s Artist of the USSR in 1983.
