London Russian Music School
We will be working closely with London Russian Music School, formerly known as Belsize Music Academy. The school was founded and is run by very talented Elena Berezovky. It is based on the Russian system with teachers of concert backgrounds. If you wish to know more about this school please visit their website: www.belsizemusicacademy.com.
Since the arrival of the great Russian artists from the Imperial Theatre at the beginning of the nineteenth century, Russian ballet has been recognised in the West as a unique artistic phenomenon. Classical ballet, as we know it today, was largely created in the Russian Imperial Theatre. The style and character of classical ballet were formed during this Imperial period. It is this style and character that retain and manifest the significance and beauty of classical ballet for the audience today. In the development of classical ballet in Imperial Russia a system evolved, over two hundred and fifty years, to meet the technical requirements and fulfil the stylistic demands of Russian choreographers. Generations of great Russian ballet theatre artists worked within that system to preserve and pass down this heritage while allowing it to evolve. It has produced arguably the greatest ballet schools and method of ballet education. Many of the famous names in the world of ballet are the products of it.
