Moscow Ballet’s Svetlana Todinova stretches limits in class!

Summer Intensives keep student dancers on their toes!

All summer Moscow Ballet soloists have been conducting Summer Intensives for aspiring dancers across the country. They have been to Pennsylvania, Illinois, Ohio and more. Here are some of the responses from teachers and students alike:

Senior Erin Sestrich, from the Pittsburgh Creative and Performing Arts School, noticed about the teaching style. “It takes us out of our comfort zones, our regular classes are more fast-paced–she focuses on the basics rather than ‘tricks,’ on making us stronger. And it definitely broadens your horizons. It helps you understand the different cultures that make up the art form.”

The Pittsburg Almanac writes, “This is where the superstars come from….”

The Advertiser-Tribune, outside of Toledo Ohio, interviewed In Motion dance Studio owner Jenny Karl. When she was a young dancer, she would have appreciated the chance to work with a professional dancer, especially in the Russian tradition. “This would be the comparable to working one-on-one with an Olympic athlete for a week,” she said, “You are working with the best of the best and for a comparable experience you would have to travel to somewhere like New York or L.A.” …read more.

In Galesburg Illinois, about 40 students ranging in age from 8 to 21 and hailing from the Knox County region, as well as Colorado, Indiana and Michigan, have five days with Miroshynk thanks to the Orpheum Theater and Knox College partnership. “I’m just really excited,” said student Hedges. “I just got back Saturday from a five-week summer intensive at Orlando, and now I get to dance another full week here.”

Svetlana Todinova demonstrating for advanced students Hedges, McGrath and Lathrop said, almost in unison, why they were attending this week’s intensive: “I just love dancing.” The girls said they use ballet to express themselves, show how they feel, and that ballet takes up a majority of their lives. Sound familiar? “Dancing is pretty much the only thing I do,” said Lathrop, “I have no life other than dance. It’s where I spend my time, and I love it.” Read more

Kristina Jaczesko, a senior at Baldwin High School, has participated in all the Moscow Ballet’s summer intensives and danced in the shows and sums up the Moscow Ballet Summer Intensive experience, “It’s amazing,” she said, “It’s like seeing what you could be in the future.”
