These young men and women are nearing the end of ballet school, an eight-year program that begins around age 10 and is comprehensive in that it includes all their academics. What I like is that Vaganova teaches boys to respect girls and girls to trust boys, which keeps them out of trouble. There is a fair amount of uniformity in body type, especially among the girls, but that is inevitable in ballet: a boy can’t life a heavy girl. I admire their hard work and good grooming. There are a few more girls than boys, so the boys have double duty. At 27:37 they do fantastic leaps.
