Vaganova not only created a galaxy of ballerinas and leading soloists, but exerted great influence on the style of male dancing in Soviet Ballet and on the work of Soviet choreographers who were able to achieve more with dancers who had such complete control of their bodies. – Anatole Chujoy from The Dance Encyclopedia, Simon & Schuster, 1967.
