Greenwich Ballet Academy Presents The Nutcracker

Greenwich Ballet Academy proudly announces the return of world-renowned ballet stars, Irina Dvorovenko and Maxim Beloserkovsky, both principal dancers at American Ballet Theatre, to guest star in their 2nd family-friendly production of The Nutcracker on Saturday, December 8 and Sunday, December 9 at the Greenwich High School Theater. Yuri Vodolaga, Artistic Director at Greenwich Ballet Academy, has created an abridged version of this holiday classic that features all of Greenwich Ballet Academy’s students, as well as Ms. Dvorovenko and Mr. Beloserkovsky, in the roles of the Sugarplum Fairy and her Cavalier.

Ms. Dvorovenko and Mr. Beloserkovsky, who taught master classes last year at Greenwich Ballet Academy, will return this year to teach and rehearse the students in preparation for the show. “It is a great honor to have Maxim and Irina perform with our students,” says Mr. Vodolaga, ‘Their involvement in our production of The Nutcracker provides a unique opportunity for Greenwich Ballet Academy’s students to learn from the very best in their craft. Not only the technical aspects of ballet, but how to really perform on stage!”. Tina Volkwein, Chairman of Greenwich Ballet Academy’s Board of Directors, added “This will be one of the most important cultural events in Greenwich this year—not to be missed by anyone interested in the art of classical ballet. Nutcracker is really unparalleled in terms of a ballet that is so thoroughly enjoyed by student dancers and audiences alike. Last year’s move to Greenwich High School was necessary as both performances were nearly sold out. We hope to repeat that success again this year.”

Ms. Dvorovenko and Mr. Beloserkovsky will also be visiting Greenwich this month as the guests of honor at ”First Snow - A Russian Winter Evening”, a fundraiser for Greenwich Ballet Academy to be held on Friday, November 30 at a private home. Festive Russian delicacies, sweets and entertainment will be enjoyed by all.

Greenwich Ballet Academy nurtures talented young dance students toward careers in professional ballet. The Academy takes great care in directing each of its students on an individual path toward excellence. Small classes, taught by renowned professionals using a progressive interpretation of the Vaganova method as taught by the Vaganova and Bolshoi Academies, ensure that each student is given the personal attention and instruction needed to reach her/his ultimate potential. The goal is to make classical ballet and contemporary dance accessible to any talented child with a dream of becoming a professional dancer, and to give each student an opportunity to acquire the needed skills and stage experience crucial to her/his future in dance.

For tickets to The Nutcracker performances or to the fundraiser,  “First Snow - A Russian Winter Evening”, please go to Greenwich Ballet Academy or call 914-305-4377.
