Great.Thank you for the post.Today it was officially confirmed by the Bavarian State Ministry, that Zelensky will be the new director of the Bavarian State Ballet for the next 5 years.(Rumors had been around for months) That's good news, because he will be able to do the balancing act to keep the classical tradition on a high level but yet persue the modern line, that has been successfully installed.He has experience in leading a company and propably excellent contacts within the danceworld. The officials were positively impressed by his serious interest in the Academy and the Junior-Company. We all hope very much, that this will be a successful story and a compensation for the decline in Berlin.

Thank you Catherine,
for posting the links. Unfortunately my Russian is limited to these little words from the ballet-vocabulary, that describe complex movements... But I'll find somebody for translation. For those, who understand German, there is this one:
