I know from watching my students grow and advance since the very first Moscow Ballet tour, that this is one of the most significant experiences a young dancer can have. It lifts them up and humbles them all at the same time.

I had a great time performing, and was very interested in meeting the dancers and the other members of the troop…I was astonished by the grace and beauty of the ballerina! She was very, very skilled and kind. I appreciate the opportunity to perform with such a prestigious organization.

Thank you for all that you have done to make the NUTCRACKER! Magical Christmas Ballet event happen. Wow! Svetlana did a great job with the students. Parents have told me that it is all their children would talk about when they picked them up from school. I wish you could have seen the eyes of the children and could have heard the squeals and applause. Please know how much everyone in our school district appreciates this marvelous experience.  Svetlana is definitely a superstar in the eyes of our students and staff.
