“It is more than a pleasure being part of Brighton Ballet Theater and participating in different events. I feel proud that I had an opportunity to be a soloist in The Nutcracker and other dances. Also, I’m really happy that I had a chance to meet new people and make new friends.”

“I am truly thankful for what BBT has done for me, particularly Irina Roizin, Edouard Kouchnarev and all the talented teachers who have taught me. They are so professional, inspirational and caring. It was their endless effort that allowed me to win third place in the 2015 YAGP competition. I couldn’t have accomplished all these achievements without their big help.”
