In this film, Adrian teaches Andrea his own specially designed ballet class covering Barre, Centre and Allegro.
Originally from Slovakia and the USA respectively, Andrea and Adrian became highly successful dancers in St Petersburg’s Mikhailovsky Theatre dancing many Solo and Principal roles between them.
Andrea was trained in her native Slovakia in Bratislava whilst Adrian completed his training at the Vaganova Ballet Academy in St Petersburg.
This is the first time we have commissioned a class taught by a dancer-teacher and performed/demonstrated by a fellow dancer!
We hope you enjoy this beautifully crafted ballet class which is highly influenced by Adrian’s training at the Vaganova Ballet Academy and also enjoy watching Andrea’s gorgeous lines and beautiful technique as she demonstrates these excellent exercises!
Follow along with Adrian’s combinations and listen as he explains every exercise and Andrea demonstrates every step, or simply watch and enjoy!
