Bolshoi Ballet & Big Apple beckons Alissa

It may take a while for Year 9 student and ballerina, Alissa Kouzmenkov to come down from Cloud 9 after her return from seven weeks in New York with the Russian Bolshoi Ballet Academy.

Alissa had the time of her life, mixing with like-minded dancers from all over the world – France, Argentina, Canada, USA and Russia – as well as being trained by some of the world’s best teachers.

On top of an exhausting dance schedule, the students undertook Russian language lessons, as their Moscow-based trainers didn’t speak English.

Alissa is so grateful for this amazing experience in the Big Apple, and the opportunity to boost her dancing technique and skills.
