Greetings to 14h International Competition of Ballet Dancers and Choreographers

June 3, 2022

Vladimir Putin sent greetings to participants, organisers and guests of the 14th International Ballet Competition of Ballet Dancers and Choreographers, which is dedicated to the 95th birth anniversary of Yury Grigorovich, an outstanding ballet master, choreographer, and teacher.

The message reads, in part:

“Those who appreciate and enjoy classical ballet rightfully consider Russian ballet an important, essential component of this art and a true gem of the world’s cultural heritage. Thus, becoming a laureate of your iconic and prestigious competition is the cherished dream of many representatives of choreographic art from different countries.

I believe that the current art forum will be outstanding, as always, and its participants will bring unforgettable impressions to the audience.”
