About Our Events

From the beginning, we have been driven to create amazing opportunitiesto celebrate the art of ballet that we love so much. As our mission and purpose crystalized, we found that as we work together we build connections with other dancers, other cultures, with audiences and between generations. "United by Dance" became our motto as we saw the power of these events.

Our past and future events cover a broad spectrum from displays of photography of our friend, mentor and role model, Mikhail Baryshnikov, to festivals in the park in Estonia where Anna Pavlova used to perform.
