25 Years and 2 Generations of Local Ballet Students Performing Side-by-Side with Moscow Ballet Pros in Kamloops on November 13

25 years and two generations later, over 75,000 local ballet students, ages 6 to 18 with at least 1 year of ballet training, perform side-by-side with Moscow Ballet pros of almost 40 dancers. In Kamloops, the “Dance with Us”  cast will perform their roles in the Great Russian Nutcracker on Monday, November 13, 4:00 pm and 8:00 pm at the Sagebrush Theatre this holiday season. 

“It was such an amazing opportunity for our young dancers to learn and grow and see how a professional company works...the costumes were breathtaking,” says Julia Zhmutski of Moscow Ballet Host Dance Studio, Julia’s Dance Academy, in Oklahoma City. The ballet students, who study at ballet schools in the area, auditioned for Moscow Ballet Audition Director Mariia Skoruk in the fall and rehearsed their roles at the Moscow Ballet Host Dance Studio Academy of Dance. The children’s roles are as Party Children, Small Mice, Snowflakes, Snow Sprites, Snow Maidens, and junior dancers in Act II’s Variations. The experience of auditioning for a professional, rehearsing with the company, being fitted in Moscow Ballet costumes, and performing for a live audience of a thousand and more is often a once-in-a-lifetime experience for these children! See the Dance with Us  student dancers perform in the Great Russian Nutcrackerwww.nutcracker.com/yourcity
