Agrippina Yakovlevna Vaganova was an outstanding Russian ballet teacher who developed the Vaganova method- the technique which derived from the teaching methods of the old Imperial Ballet School.Vaganova's whole life was connected with the Imperial Ballet of the Mariinsky Theatre in Saint Petersburg.
Ballet did not come easily to Vaganova in her first years as a student, but slowly, through the efforts of her own will power, she was able to join the illustrious Imperial Ballet upon her graduation. By the time she attained the rank of soloist, Saint Petersburg balletomanes dubbed her queen of variations, for her unlimited virtuosity and level of technique.
