Teacher Certification Program NYC Bolshoi Ballet Academy

The 2014 Program Dates are: Aug 3 – 10, 2014 – 8-Day Intensive Session

Curriculum

Founded nearly 240 years ago, the Bolshoi Ballet Academy has a rich history of training many of the world’s greatest ballet dancers. Over the years the Academy has staffed only the best master teachers of classical ballet, many of them former ballet stars themselves with advanced degrees in dance instruction.

The Bolshoi curriculum is respected internationally for its focus on musicality, strength, and pureness of classical technique. Though the Vaganova method is the foundation for the Bolshoi curriculum, the Academy has built upon and expanded from it, in its strive for perfection and greater attention to individual progress.

As demonstrated by RAF’s highly successful Bolshoi Ballet Summer Academy Summer Intensives in New York City and Connecticut, RAF believes there is a great demand among students in the U.S. for training in the Bolshoi curriculum. RAF is excited to offer this program so that newly certified teachers in the Bolshoi Curriculum can share the curriculum with students across the country. Teachers who participate in the program will have the opportunity to engage in a unique and authentic training program lead by Master Teachers from the Bolshoi Ballet Academy in Moscow. At the end of a successful completion of the program, they will receive an official Bolshoi Ballet Academy Teaching Certificate for the appropriate program level.*

Building on the Academy’s respected curriculum, the Teacher Certification program provides instruction in systematic, methodic, and holistic methods for classical dance instruction. Training will include workshops, lectures, master classes, and independent tutorials. The program’s theme, ‘Methods of Teaching Classical Dance’, is designed to combine the theoretical and practical work of generations of Academy instructors. This program is conducted in Russian language with assistance of English speaking translators. Program faculty and their bios can be found on the Program Faculty page. The breakdown in topics according to level is as follows:

LEVEL A: 1st , 2nd , & 3rd year of study (junior level): Lays a professional foundation, imparts basic skills of coordination, begins work on the artistic, expressive, and musical performance in accordance with the age of students to expose the students’ artistic personality.

LEVEL B: 4th & 5th year of study (intermediate level): Develops more complex methods in executing movements and combinations. Furthers the development of musicality, expression, and the artistic personality.

LEVEL C: 6th, 7th, & 8th year of study (advanced level): Develops and subsequently tests the program material. Covers virtuoso techniques, as well as the expansion and formation of individual students’ progress and talents.

*Please note that in in 2014 only Levels A and B will be offered.

Please be advised that the completion of the Program in no way establishes recognition of a participant as a Master Teacher or a Bolshoi Ballet Academy Teacher, nor are any results guaranteed such as future employment or any other benefit as a result of completing the Program. Upon successful completion of the Program, as evidenced by issuance of an official certificate, a participant will be entitled to state that he/she has completed the official Bolshoi Ballet Academy Teacher’s Certification Intensive.
