Announcing Moscow Ballet’s Dove of Peace Tour in Phoenix!

Experience Moscow Ballet’s Dove of Peace Tour  presenting world class ballerinas and danseurs in over 100 cities across North America this holiday season. CNNspoke with Producer Akiva Talmi about the ballet’s unique Dove of Peace character which was inspired by Bolshoi Principal Artists’ performance in NYC in 1957, and first presented by Moscow Ballet as a single ballerina costumed in 2 lightly feathered wings. Talmisays, “Masha flies on the wings of the Dove of Peace around the world seeking peace and harmony. She goes to France, Italy, Africa -- all around the world, and she finds peace and harmony through love.” In Act II Masha and her Nutcracker Prince arrive in the “Land of Peace and Harmony” (traditionally called the Land of Sweets) and celebrate the great heritages of the world including African, Asian, European, Hispanic and Slavic.


Local Audition Information Coming Soon for Moscow Ballet's 2018 Phoenix Performances!

Heart and Sole Performing Arts is located in the beautiful cities of Avondale and Surprise, AZ and owned by John and Jolena Payan. Its mission is to create an atmosphere of passion, discipline and respect for the art of dance. Children who discover and develop their artistic voice early on, build self confidence that carries over into their academic and social lives. The school wants children to walk away from every class feeling happy with their accomplishments and the work it took to get there.  In each class instructors strive to give children the encouragement and direction they need to excel.

Heart and Sole Performing Arts is committed to using music, costuming and dance movements that are age appropriate and family friendly. In the coming years, instructors hope to culturally enrich and be an active part of the communities they serve. Conversely, it is important for students to experience dance beyond the schools’ walls through various performance opportunities, master classes and touring companies such as Moscow Ballet. Lastly, Heart and Sole Performing Arts believes that dance is a family affair, and students of all ages and abilities are welcome.
