During our Elite Training Program‘s time in St. Petersburg, Russia, we were elated to have esteemed prima ballerina of the Mariinsky Theatre and long-time friend and supporter of OWDF, come and work with our Elite Training students! Our ET students learned immensely from Ms. Lopatkina’s class and exceptional coaching.
We thank Ms. Lopatkina sincerely for teaching our students, and especially for coaching ET alumna Katia Raj on her variation for the International Baltic Ballet competition! Ms. Lopatkina coached Katia on the Mekhmene Banu variation, which was one of Ms. Lopatkina’s favorite roles.
