Summertime with our Dancers

Summer, Sand and Sightseeing

July 23, 2019  |  By Moscow Ballet

Moscow Ballet dancers put in so much hard work to deliver an exceptional performance every time they step on stage, so when they have a moment to themselves, they do their best to take advantage of the downtime. Check out what the dancers have been up to this summer:

Some like to explore new places.
