Methods

There are several classical ballet training methods (or schools), each designed to produce a unique aesthetic quality from its students. Several of the training methods are named after their creators. For example, two prevailing systems from Russia are the Vaganova method (created by Agrippina Vaganova) and the Legat Method (by Nikolai Legat). The Cecchetti method is named after Italian dancer Enrico Cecchetti. Another training method was developed by and named after August Bournonville; this is taught primarily in Denmark.

Famous quotes containing the word methods:

    The greatest part of our faults are more excusable than the methods that are commonly taken to conceal them.
    François, Duc De La Rochefoucauld (1613–1680)

    In inner-party politics, these methods lead, as we shall yet see, to this: the party organization substitutes itself for the party, the central committee substitutes itself for the organization, and, finally, a “dictator” substitutes himself for the central committee.
    Leon Trotsky (1879–1940)

    The comparison between Coleridge and Johnson is obvious in so far as each held sway chiefly by the power of his tongue. The difference between their methods is so marked that it is tempting, but also unnecessary, to judge one to be inferior to the other. Johnson was robust, combative, and concrete; Coleridge was the opposite. The contrast was perhaps in his mind when he said of Johnson: “his bow-wow manner must have had a good deal to do with the effect produced.”
    Virginia Woolf (1882–1941)
