Soraya Sullivan has been recognised as a dancer of skill and artistry

In January, Soraya Sullivan (Y6) attended a Summer Intensive Training Program in Bondi, Sydney, with Russian Ballet International. During this program, students ranging in age from 8 to 18 were instructed by master ballet teachers from the Russian Bolshoi Ballet Academy. Students were assessed for their technical skill, artistry and overall potential, with those dancers that showed the greatest promise being offered a place at the Russian Ballet International summer training program in Italy. A select few of these outstanding young dancers were also offered a placement of up to five weeks at the prestigious Bolshoi Ballet Academy in Moscow.

After a long week of hard (but fun) work, Soraya was delighted to receive an offer to attend both the Italian and Russian programs, and will travel to Florence and Urbino in Italy and Moscow in July this year to take up these remarkable opportunities. In addition, Soraya has accepted the offer of a short-term scholarship to the Dutch National Ballet Academy, and will be joining them during the Term 1 school holidays.

Congratulations to Soraya on this recognition of her remarkable skills as a dancer.
