Congratulations
Dance Open Grand Prix goes to Olga Smirnova and Semyon Chudin
The Dance Open International Ballet Festival, which this year celebrates its 15th jubilee, has just ended in St. Petersburg. The 2016 Dance Open Grand Prix was awarded to the Bolshoi principals Olga Smirnova and Semyon Chudin. Both dancers have already been honoured at this Festival: in 2013, Smirnova carried off the Miss Expressivity award and in 2014 Chudin - the Mister Virtuoso award. The authoritative international jury was headed this year by choreographer Hans van Manen.
