Bayer Ballet's Adult Program delivers a well-rounded curriculum comprised of Vaganova ballet technique, repertoire and pilates.
The LIVE Virtual Training Program (Zoom) is designed to meet the specific needs of each of our students. Teachers will build upon the current curriculum to make sure that each student:
continues to develop properly, in a systematic, healthful way;
receives personalized, oral critiques, as we do in-studio;
receives proper guidance to continue working independently between classes;
develops a greater understanding of the Vaganova method and the art of classical ballet
will rise, stronger than before!
We are committed to our students' well-being, as artists and people. Together, but virtual, we look forward to dancing through this journey with you!
Our adult ballet program focuses on creating overall body awareness, while improving posture, toning and sculpting, improving flexibility, balance and coordination, and promoting creative expression. As an added bonus, ballet exercises relieve stress by shifting your focus and relaxing your mind, so that all of the day's anxiety can be washed away!
Ivan Goliandin is a graduate of the Moscow State Academy of Choreography (Bolshoi Ballet Academy). He began his artistic career as Principal Dancer with the Natalia Satz Musical Theatre (formerly the Moscow State Opera and Ballet Theatre) in Moscow, Russia. There he performed lead roles such as Siegfried in Swan Lake (choreographers M. Petipa/L. Ivanov), Prince in The Nutcracker (V. Vainonen), Meners in Scarlet Sails, Wolf in Little Red Riding Hood, and Prince in Cinderella (B. Ljapajev).
In Italy, for a decade, Ivan performed as a Principal Dancer with the San Carlo Theater Company in Naples. In that capacity, he collaborated with acclaimed choreographers such as R. Nureyev, R. Petit, R. North, M. Sparemblek, R. Nunez, V. Sieni, N. Glushak, F. Monteverdi, R. Fascilla, L. Cannito, among others. Some of his lead roles included Don Escamilo in Carmen (Petit), Spring in Cinderella (Nureyev), Csardas in Pipistrello (Petit), Lenskij in Onegin, Benvoglio in Romeo and Juliet (G. Cranko), First Shining Dancer in Allegro Brilliante (G. Balanchine), English Dancer in Exelsior (U. Dell Ara), Chopiniana in Les Sylphides (M. Fokin), German Official in Amarcord (Cannito), and Pas de trois, Pas de quatre in Swan Lake.
In 2007, Ivan graduated with Honors from the Moscow State Academy of Choreography with a degree in Pedagogy and Choreography. Advanced education, combined with his distinguished artistic career, has made Ivan a sought-after master teacher in Classical, Historical, and Character Dance. To date, he has created fifty or so original choreographies and staged the repertories for various international ballet performances and dance events.
In collaboration with Riccardo Riccardi, Ivan translated in Italian from Russian The School of Russian Ballet: Vaganova Method by V.S. Kostrovitskaja and A.A. Pisarev (Little Library of Arts, Gremese, 2007). This book was chosen by the National Academy of Dance in Rome as a manual for teachers and students.
Ivan currently serves as the Director of the Male Program and Adult Program at Bayer Ballet.
