The Valley Arts Alliance, based in Newport (Maine), continues to be very active. Many events are planned through the summer of 2018 and beyond.
On Thursday February 11, 2016, the Valley Arts Alliance heard a presentation from Chris Faria, Ballett Associate representing the Bossov Ballet Theatre at Maine Central Institute in Pittsfield. Chris presented information regarding the students from MCI who are studying Classical Ballet (Vaganova method) while attending MCI.
Chris gave the history of the program and background of the current Artistic Director, Natalya Getman, who studied dance at the Leningrad Academy Choreographic School (Kirov Theater) under Kovaleva.
Most recently, the students presented The Nutcracker Suite this past Christmas in Waterville. Chris also showed a video of the students practicing. The Valley Arts Alliance plans to have additional speakers in the future and will be advertising them before they occur.
The presentation was enjoyed by all and refreshments were served.
