Pointe technique is the part of classical ballet technique that concerns pointe work, in which a ballet dancer supports all body weight on the tips of fully extended feet. Edouard Kouchnarev is the Artistic Director and Lead Choreographer at the Brighton Ballet Theater (BBT), a NYC-based dance company. For over 18 years, he has been working with BBT and its success climbed to a new level once Edouard came on board as a visionary choreographer in 1995. With his direction and creative energy, BBT has realized its dream of being a presenter of groundbreaking new choreography of emerging dance in the United States. Mr. Kouchnarev combines modern dance, character dance together with classical ballet techniques to create a euphoric dance onstage and specializes on choreography for children and teens. With over 15 new ballets and 300 pieces over the past 18 years, Edouards choreography for Brighton Ballet Theater Company is a thoroughly enjoyable visual experience. Some of his original repertoire includes The Giant Turnip, also known as The Radish, Ugly Duckling and P. Tchaikovskys Childrens Album that have premiered at the Brooklyn Academy of Music (BAM) in June, 2013. Throughout the years, Mr. Kouchnarev has been creating a unique viewing experience for BBT Companys audience. Children dance onstage with professional ballet dancers to create an extraordinary extravaganza of Broadway proportions. The seamless nature of the dance styles in BBTs choreography truly captivates the audience. Dancers serve as actors to convey major themes involving nature, the battle between good and evil and the whole range of human relationships and emotions. Edouards ideas have inspired countless dancers to push their creative limits. The Vaganova method is a ballet technique and training system devised by the Russian dancer and pedagogue Agrippina Vaganova (1879–1951). The technique fuses elements of traditional French technique from the romantic era with the athleticism and virtuosity of Italian technique. The training system is designed to involve the whole body in every movement, with equal attention paid to the upper body, legs and feet. Vaganova believed that this approach increases consciousness of the body, thus creating a harmony of movement and greater expressive range. About BBT | The School of Russian American Ballet The School of Russian American Ballet was established in 1987 as a not-for profit organization and held its first class with just five students in a tiny studio. Oh, how times have changed since then. Today, the Brooklyn-based ballet center–located on the campus of Kingsborough Community College–employs teachers trained in the famed Vaganova Methods. Teachers passionately share their knowledge and talents with beginners as well as advanced dancers of all ages and backgrounds, and give students an opportunity to perform full-scale ballets with costumes and scenery.
