2020 Kyiv International Grand Prix Competition & Ballet Festival

We are so proud of Ballet Melange trainees who represented our program, state and the United States at this prestigious international competition. These students gracefully navigated jet lag, many intense rehearsals, and a rigorous competition schedule catching the notice of judges, company directors, school leaders and peers not only for their impressive technique and performance artistry, but also for their work ethic, attitude and manners. 

 

Competition finalists included Maya, Ellie, Avalon and Anaka.   Trainees Maya, Lili, Avalon and Anaka received special recognition awards and/or international company offers.
