“They are high-level artists, but, most of all, they are beautiful people. They have the talent, passion and desire to take Olympic Ballet into an exciting and professional future,” Wilkins said in a release.
Vinson and Gorboulev have choreographed and staged Olympic Ballet Theatre's production of "Coppelia" to be performed next month. Vinson is on the poster. In this preview, Gorboulev coaches the dancer playing Dr. Coppelius.
Gorboulev also danced with Moscow Classical Ballet, Ballet International, and, after PNB, with Los Angeles Ballet and Julie Tobiason's Seattle Dance Project. According to the Emerald Ballet Theatre website (Bellevue, WA, close to Microsoft-land), he is currently the Assistant Artistic Director there as well as a teacher. He also has been teaching at Olympic Ballet Theatre, the PNB school, and Spectrum Dance Theatre. This page has a small photo of him dancing in "Apollo" with Corina Gill at a 2006 benefit.
Since leaving PNB, Mara Vinson has danced with Le Yin in several productions for International Ballet Theatre, also in Bellevue, including "Don Quixote" and "Giselle". Gorboulev also danced in the same production of "Don Quixote", as well as in "Dracula" and as Drosselmeier in "The Nutcracker".
