About the Book
"VAGANOVA BALLET ACADEMY" - This book is a vivid photographic record of daily life in Vaganova Ballet Academy. 120 pages - 150 photos. Review by Constance Lee Scheurer: "This is an amazing book!! I received it yesterday and it embodies all the beauty, talent, and tradition of classical ballet training back to 1738. Stanislav and his wife Anastasia Dunets are both graduates of the Vaganova Ballet Academy, then invited to dance with the legendary "Kirov Ballet in St. Petersburg". Through Stanislav's beautiful photography you see first hand the magic that is passed down from generation to generation through the dedicated teachers. You see the students working side by side and the sweat coming from their brows ~ the result is perfection!!! Dance in America began in Russia !! This was also the school of Balanchine, Leonide Massine, Anna Pavlova, Edward Caton, Mikhail Fokine, & Marius Petipa to name a few. Buy the book, you will not be disappointed ~~ XXX Thank you Stanislav for a rare look into this legendary school that lives on and through your photography will be shared by millions worldwide!"
