Daniil Simpkin at the International Ballet Competition - Jackson, MS - June 2006
The biggest story at the VIII USA International Ballet Competition in Jackson, Mississippi this past June was the impressive virtuosity of the young male dancers. CDA (Classical Dance Alliance) interviewed three medalists on the brink of promising careers who dazzled judges and attendees, and we strongly suspect will be thrilling ballet audiences in the very near future. We invited them to talk about their training, aspirations, and diverse perspectives on a life in Classical Dance.
