Pevnev Ballet Academy Artistic Director and former WA Ballet Principal Dancer, Sergey Pevnev, has launched an exciting new company which will feature local amateur dancers with local and international acclaimed professional dancers.
"I wanted to have a professional outlet for my creativity and for promising local amateur dancers to perform," said Mr Pevnev.
The inaugural production of 'Aladdin' will feature Ivan Tarakanov of the Atlanta Ballet with local up and coming dancer, Ayesha Lucido (14) from the Pevnev Ballet Academy, and for the ballet fans who miss seeing Mr Pevnev perform on-stage, he will be putting in a very special cameo as the Genie.
Mr Tarakanov has become a regular visitor to Perth, previously performing with the Perth City Ballet and Pevnev Ballet Academy productions.
Miss Lucido is fresh off an impressive performance at the Youth America Grand Prix Finals in New York City, where she received offers for scholarships at the Dutch National Ballet in Amsterdam and the University of Performing Arts and Music in Munich.
Choreography for this production will be by Mr Tarakanov with set design by Maria Ogryum.
Performances of this family friendly ballet will run from 12 to the 14 of July at the Kalamunda Performing Arts Centre. Tickets are available from TryBooking.com/BBSBK
