From the Korea Times:

Universal Ballet Company dancing its way to success
UBC has done in 20 years what many of these renowned ballet companies have achieved in ten times that time, starting from the days when Korea lacked a proper ballet education. In fact, Adrienne Dellas, UBC's first Artistic Director, used the word "criminal" after seeing Korean elementary children working on rigorous ballet steps in toe shoes, which they should not have been wearing until years later.

However, with the blessing of good foreign teachers, such as Dellas from America and Oleg Vinogradov, the Kirov Ballet Artistic Director for 25 years, UBC has become a resource that any international city might envy.

By Lee Yong-sung for The Korea Times

Multinational ballerinas of the Universal Ballet Company (UBC) have come out of the ballet theater to get closer to the general public who otherwise would have little chance to come into contact with classical ballet.

On the evening of May 2, Sunday, people gathered around the special outdoor stage in front of Little Angels Performing Arts Center, East Seoul, the home of a Seoul-based world class ballet company.

Evening of Contemporary Perfomances with Universal Ballet
By Yoon Ja-young for The Korea Times

If you are already a lover of classical ballet, then perhaps you have considered viewing a performance of the contemporary type. You may have been reluctant, however, thinking it would be boring or difficult to understand.

``An Evening of Contemporary Ballet IV,’’ scheduled at the Little Angels Performing Arts Center June 25-27, is a special invitation from the Universal Ballet to see the world of contemporary ballet, which is not abstruse or abstract but rather full of imagination and possibilities.
