Irina Kolpakova–prima ballerina of the Mariinsky Theatre, People’s Artist of Russia, principals’ coach of American Ballet Theatre, and direct student of Agrippina Vaganova–has recently signed a letter expressing support for Open World Dance Foundation.

Mme. Kolpakova has been a part of our training programs for years, and we are incredibly lucky to have her support expressed through both teaching and writing. It is a rare and invaluable opportunity to have such a legendary figure impart their knowledge on the younger generation, and we are forever grateful.
