The Grand Kyiv Ballet is launching its 60-city national tour of GISELLE in Boston on Friday, Feb. 23, at 7pm at the Emerson Colonial. The Grand Kyiv Ballet is not just an amazing dance company but an incredible story of resilience and inspiration. Principal Dancers Kateryna Kukhar and Alex Stoianov, who now call Seattle their temporary home because of the conflict in Ukraine, were continents away when the war erupted. Kateryna was in Berlin with her students from the Kyiv State Ballet College, where they achieved remarkable success, winning six medals for Ukraine. Meanwhile, Alex was in France, preparing for their final performance in Menton. Just prior, they had rehearsed GISELLE together, a poignant moment amidst the turmoil unfolding back home. Originally planning to return to Kyiv, their lives were upended when they received news of the war's outbreak and bombings.
