Maryland School of Ballet

We were very pleased to be invited to teach at the Maryland School of Ballet and Modern Dance. The school posted its own write up on its web page, and as I struggle to get caught up in my accounts of our travels, I hope they will not mind if I quote their text:

Students at the Maryland School of Ballet and Modern Dance, Inc located in Bel Air MD welcomed Mr. Valery Lantratov, Artistic Director of the Russian National Ballet Foundation to teach their students this past Wednesday, August 13, 2008. Mr. Lantratov has had a distinguished career as a dancer in the companies of Vladimir Vasiliev, Maya Plitsetskaya and Ekaterina Maximova and international tours with Rudolf Nureyev.

Maryland School of Ballet and Modern Dance students, ranging in age between 10-18 thoroughly enjoyed the opportunity to study with Mr. Lantratov while he was on tour in the United States. Mr. Lantratov commented that “he has been in hundreds of studios throughout the world and was very impressed with the Maryland School of Ballet and Modern Dance students and the ballet foundation they have received”. The Maryland School of Ballet and Modern Dance will welcome Mr. Lantratov back in 2009 when he returns for another tour.
