You know, I AM confused about what you CAN call Vaganova and what you can't... This is the reason why I copied that specific sentence exactly as it was on the cover. "She studied at the Vaganova School of Russian Ballet with Messerer, Zakharov and Armasevskaya." Maybe the person writting the cover was like me, and just supposed it was correct?
) it will be the same technique/vocabulary...etc... What I find actually difficult to detail is what could be called 'French technique'!! (it is only called this abroad...) In France, we have schools with different styles according to each teachers , so you would very much put this forward on your CV, but if you say 'have trained in the French technique' it will not get you far!
So it's the credential of your teacher that matters, more than what the style truly is -the French method, as you call it abroad is then more a melting pot of French teachers, using their own styles... Only conservatories would follow the exact same syllabus and POB; these 2 are related, but do not use exactly the same technique, a bit like Royal Ballet and RAD. Apart from those conservatories then, you could argue that each teacher would have different standards (true) and that they're not all good (true too, but you'd also have to consider the fact that teachers in France cannot teach unless they have the 'diplome d'etat' which is a bit like a teaching diploma in the RAD method)... I don't know what it would correspond to in other methods... It's quite expensive, but more importantly, VERY hard to obtain (esp. as a first time candidate).
