In this film, Oksana teaches her own specially designed ballet class covering Barre, Centre and Allegro all in soft shoes.
Originally from Ukraine, Oksana is a star ballerina of the Mariinsky Theatre where she has been a Principal since 2017.
Famed for her extraordinary legs and feet which showcase her flawless technique and line, Oksana dances all of the major ballerina repertoire from Swan Lake to La Bayadere.
Her ballet class combinations are influenced by her Russian training and by her professional career to date in St Petersburg’s Mariinsky Theatre where she is a student of former Kirov Ballet star ballerina Elena Yevteyeva.
With exercises based on pure Russian classical schooling, this class is particularly interesting for those who want to learn more about Russian Ballet technique. Follow along with Oksana’s combinations and read the subtitles if you don’t speak Russian to understand her explanations as she talks through every exercise and demonstrates every step, or simply watch and enjoy!
