If you are looking for a ballet performance or school that trains the world’s future bright stars then look no further than Koltun Ballet Boston! Koltun Ballet Boston is the premier academy of the Boston area founded by former principal dancer’s Alexandra Koltun and her husband Alex Lapshin. I was lucky to meet the owners several years ago when I was one of the first Tom Ford Product Specialists in New England! Fast forward to the present when artist and designer Irina Gorbman from Irina Gorbman Fine Art and I were talking about our strategy and goals for our businesses she informed me that her designs will be featured in Koltun Ballet on January 20th, 2018, 3pm at the Koltun Studio during their Winter Showcase.
It’s a wonderful collaboration and concept for the ballerinas to wear expressionistic art while the ballerinas express themselves through dancing!
Koltun Ballet Boston’s Gold Medal winning Alexandra Koltun graduated from the Ballet Academy in St. Petersburg Russia, she was trained by legendary stars and later became a principal ballerina in the Boston Ballet for Christopher Wheeldon’s Fire Bird and Four Seasons. Alex Lapshin joined Les Grands Ballets in Montreal in 1997, and then the Boston Ballet in 1999.
Irina is an abstract self-taught meditative artist and lifestyle designer. The vibrancy of her color combinations creates an uplifting and recharging experience and reflects Art That Heals™ concept. Her company offers fashionable wearable art designs in limited quantities so every piece is a unique work of art.
IG: It was a great pleasure to work on custom designs for Koltun Ballet Boston modern dance performance, choreographed by Kristin Wagner. This collaboration feels special not only because of KBB’s amazing commitment to traditional classical ballet and a vibrant synergy between the young dancers and the teachers but also because it continues a century-old tradition of Russian Ballet using costumes and set designs created by an artist. The roots of this trend go back to performances by The Ballet Russes in Paris.
The Winter Showcase will be held on Saturday, January 20th at 3 pm at their home studio 23 Main Street, Watertown, MA 02472 . It’s open to the public
