Vaganova Academy (et al) in DC January 26-

4 posts in this topic

Dancers from the Vaganova Academy and five other famous dance schools will perform one or two different program segments each during four days.

I hope to see two of these performances, as my daughter in nearby Philadelphia has just given birth to a baby girl, and I will use any excuse possible to see her again. I will try to report when I get back.

This sounds like a great program, and we look forward to hearing your review of it.

Congratulations to you and your daughter on the birth of your granddaughter :D

Just note that for Vaganova Academy it states "alumni," which they seem to be dancing in Kirov Ballet now...

But still should be a great program!

i'm not sure this is the place to post this, if not, i trust it will be moved to the place most agreeable to board readers.

here is the programming as of now for the PROTEGES series at Kennedy Center.

tho' the vaganova appearances no longer say alumni, they still note kirov BALLET thus we can assume these will be co. dancers and not academy pupils, but nothing is specifically spelled out.

fyi:
