Announcing Moscow Ballet’s Dove of Peace Tour in Little Rock!

Experience Moscow Ballet’s Dove of Peace Tour  presenting world class ballerinas and danseurs in over 100 cities across North America this holiday season. CNNspoke with Producer Akiva Talmi about the ballet’s unique Dove of Peace character which was inspired by Bolshoi Principal Artists’ performance in NYC in 1957, and first presented by Moscow Ballet as a single ballerina costumed in 2 lightly feathered wings. Talmisays, “Masha flies on the wings of the Dove of Peace around the world seeking peace and harmony. She goes to France, Italy, Africa -- all around the world, and she finds peace and harmony through love.” In Act II Masha and her Nutcracker Prince arrive in the “Land of Peace and Harmony” (traditionally called the Land of Sweets) and celebrate the great heritages of the world including African, Asian, European, Hispanic and Slavic.

Local Audition Information Coming Soon for Moscow Ballet's 2018 Little Rock Performances!

Fall in love with the art of dance in a non-competitive and age appropriate environment at Little Rock’s Dancers Corner School of Dance. The recreational program focuses on Classical Ballet and also introduces students to Tap & Jazz. The Ballet Company classes offer pre-Pointe & Pointe training. Voted "Best Choice for Kids & Families" by readers of Kid's Directory two years running, Dancers' Corner was established in July of 2010 by Mrs. Sandy Hunter Miller.  The other teachers from McAfee joined Mrs. Sandy in creating the new studio, giving the staff an average of 20 years teaching experience. Dancers' Corner recently celebrated it's 5th year with an amazing Jazz & Tap showcase and Cinderella Ballet! Classes are offered during the morning, early afternoon, after school and in the evening to meet the needs of many families. The homeschool program now offers 4 age ranges with mid-day class times. Students may begin as early as 2 years old with our Tots in Tutus, Mommy & Me program, continue with independent classes starting at 3 years old, and join our company performance classes from ages 6 to adult. The studio presents and offers an age appropriate experience for all involved.  From youngest to oldest and most advanced students, costumes are modest, and music and choreography are appropriate for the dancers and the audience members who will be watching them perform.
