Ballet is a conventional form of dance, usually set to classical music. It is taught in a turned out body position. Ballet will assist students with proper body alignment and improve posture and technique. This method is designed to employ the body as a whole, with total involvement of the body in every movement, including the upper body as well as the legs and feet. It is believed that this approach increases consciousness of the body, thus creating a harmony of movement and greater expressive range. The training regimen for the Vaganova method is complex and rigorously planned, to produce a clean, skilled, artistic technique. Due to its strictly codified training system, the Vaganova method is widely considered to be injury-free. Ballet lays the foundation for all forms of dance and is essential to mastering proper dance technique. Ballet attempts to prove that gravity does NOT exist.
