North Atlanta Dance Academy features Vaganova style Ballet training. At the turn of the twentieth century teachers from France and Italy greatly influenced the “Russian” school. Aggripina Vaganova, a renowned teacher of the Kirov school in St. Petersburg, Russia, took the best from the French, Italian and Russian schools. She codified them into a style considered by many to be the foremost method of training ballet dancers.
Accelerated / Pre-Professional Program:
The accelerated program is geared to students who are interested in, one day, performing with North Atlanta Dance Theatre and may be interested in pursuing a career in dance. Students beginning age seven may audition for this program with company eligibility beginning around age twelve. A student must display talent, motivation and meet physical requirements.
Our modern training is based upon the Horton style. Mr. Horton was a modern dance pioneer. The Horton technique is an organic approach to movement. It increases strength and range of motion beyond the constraints of classical ballet. It is anatomically corrective, therefore beneficial to young dancers.
European national dances, otherwise called character dances are featured in most classical ballet. The various styles are very valuable for all dance students. In addition to being great fun for the students they develop a greater sense of upper body carriage and footwork.
Jazz & Tap:
Our Jazz and Tap are rooted in the classic L.A. and Broadway styles with some funky stuff mixed in. All instruction is age appropriate and is designed to provide greater versatility as well as freedom of movement.
Open School Program:
Our open school program provides casual students the outlet they desire for the enjoyment of the activity. Open school students may take as many classes desired and are registered by level and age group. A minimum of one ballet technique class per week is required to take jazz, character or modern classes. Students taking pointe must be registered in two ballet technique classes per-week.
