Mariinsky Related -- 14th Moscow International Ballet Competition


Recommended Posts

Having only become interested after watching the final competition event, The Seniors Finals, I didn't focus on something that should have been evident. The competitions are dominated by Vaganova students and graduates. And perhaps the most interesting group is actually the Juniors Girls Solos where we can glimpse at several of the possible future stars of the Mariinsky.

(Thanks to Enya and Sophia at Dansomanie for much of the following official information)


Junior Group Girls, Solo
 
Vaganova Students:

I Prize -- Maria Koshkareva (Russia) (And officially a "Mariinsky Trainee" while only in her second year at the Vaganova) 
II Prize -- Yaroslavna Kuprina (Russia) 
III Prize -- Camilla Sultangareeva (Russia)


The following performances have been cited and posted on the internet:  (Thanks to Sophia at Dansomanie)

Maria Koshkaryova (Russia) - Hebe Variation | XIV Moscow Ballet Competition, Junior Round 1

Yaroslavna Kuprina (Russia) - Raymonda Variation | XIV Moscow Ballet Competition, Junior Round 3

Kamila Sultangareeva (Russia) - Mistress Variation | XIV Moscow Ballet Competition, Junior Round 3


If I get a chance I'll try to find performances by these young women in the officially posted complete coverage. In the meantime if you might want to search for yourself, you can look here. It could be a trove.

Each girl performed six solos. (Thanks to Enya at Dansomanie for the following information)

1st round: solo candidates, 2 classical variations; duo candidates, 1 classical pas de deux with variations and coda.
2nd round: solo candidates, 1 classical variation and 1 contemporary dance; duo candidates, 1 classical dance and 1 contemporary dance.
3rd round: solo candidates, 1 classical variation and 1 variation of choreography by Grigorovich; duo candidates, 1 classic pdd.

So in total 6 variations for the junior candidates in solo, and 4 pieces for those in duo.

From the few videos I’ve seen of Smirnova, she’s one of the most exciting youngsters in Russian ballet:  powerful, charismatic, with extraordinary lines.  I’ll have to track down video of her performances at this competition!

I'll see if I can find anything, Tutu.

For the moment here's this.

Maria Koshkaryova

Only two years at the Vaganova Academy, she is officially listed as a "Mariinsky Trainee" (the only one at present) and has already danced a lead. From most comments that I've read she destined to be a Star.  As expected, she won First Prize Gold in her grouping, Women's Solos Juniors.

This is a very good chance to get a recent glimpse of her. She performed six solos at the XIV Moscow Ballet Competition. (I don't normally post unofficial videos, but these are all officially available at the competition site, just much easier to find this way.)

I do agree with you from this performance that she's quite lovely. Once again:

Here are two more very fine performances by the Second and Third Prize winners of the Junior Women Solos, both Vaganova students.
