I am so excited to be bringing another opportunity to support local arts! The Academy of Russian Ballet is proud to present their ninth annual Nutcracker Ballet with Northern Virginia Ballet company. This year, International Ballet stars Irina Dvorovenko and Maxim Beloserkovsky will be guest dancers in the performance. Ms. Dvorovenko and Mr. Beloserkovsky are former Principal dancers with American Ballet Theater and were trained at the Kiev State Choreographic Institute and were Principal dancers with the Kiev State Ballet in Uktraine. Ms Dvorovenko was a guest judge on “So You Think You Can Dance?” and will be featured on the upcoming Starz Channel series, “Flesh and Bone”.
The Northern Virginia Ballet is an amazing company with a family-friendly atmosphere. As attendees of their performances for the last couple of years we have been continually impressed with the talent, and the performers. They interact with the children, take pictures and answer questions. Supporting local arts, giving children opportunities to both perform for an audience and also watch something geared towards them is so important.
