Hi Stardancer. The emphasis is on the Vaganova method, but I suggest you email Natalia Kremen and ask her any questions you may have about course content and she will give you details.

Hi Stardancer, my daughter is 14. Didn't realise course was until 6/7pm and we have a 1.5 hr journey home. She is also at Elmhurst summer school the week after so don't know if it'll be too much? Think she wants to go though. How old is your daughter? Well done to her too!

Just back from this.I'm completely ballet ignorant so it was my dd who picked this and she was very impressed and i was very grateful to the staff for their support.She is strongly considering going to a ballet school at 16, any suggestions as to where would use similar technique ?.

It's my understanding that several vocational schools use syllabi based in varying degrees on the Vaganova style. Your dd's teacher(s) should be able to give you an idea of which schools your dd could apply for. One to investigate may be London Russian Ballet School if that would be a possibility, location-wise.

Hi my dd also went here last week and was sad to leave, what fantastic training, friendly teaching and parents and children beautiful.

The studios they had for the week on the Thames was outstanding,even though I did get lost on the first day.

I would move down there for that training outstanding.

Absolutely agree with Stardanser and Dr.f and their ballet children. That was a wonderful week. It was a very intensive 'Intensive' course. The students had to work really hard. Perhaps, some of the children who joined this course for the week have never even done that amount of work in a day/ in a week time. However, coming to the final demonstration class on Saturday, 2 August, we could see how much had been done and what had been achieved. The wonderful Lyudmila Konovalova, prima-ballerina from Vienna Opera, taught the younger group; Alexander Muntagirov, former principal dancer, professor, a man of such great knowledge and experience, taught the older age group; Natasha Nemytkina led character dance lessons; Kirill Burlov, sessions on contemporary dance; Simonetta lectured on the history of ballet. Along with Natalia Kremen, the principal of the school, they all deserve the highest praise, as does the administrator of the school, Karen. All worked so hard to make this week special. The students were so lucky to have a special visitor during the course week. Vadim Muntagirov was there to watch a ballet class and the final presentation. I am sure all the students learnt something new this week, perhaps learnt more about themselves, how to improve their technique, how to persevere and grow in confidence in ballet, having been encouraged by such amazing teachers.

Great news! The dates have been confirmed for Natalia Kremen Ballet School Summer Intensive 2015. The summer course will run from 20th to 26th July 2015. It will be another great opportunity to learn from Natalia and other excellent teachers.
