Meadows Dance Class Welcomes Moscow Ballet Dancer

Nataliya Miroshnyk was in Dallas to perform in The Great Russian Nutcracker at SMU

In its tradition of bringing top professionals to campus to interact with and inspire students, SMU welcomed Moscow Ballet lead dancer and audition director Nataliya Miroshnyk to a special class held in the Charles S. Sharp Studio on Friday, Nov. 18. Miroshnyk, in town to perform in The Great Russian Nutcracker at SMU’s McFarlin Auditorium, taught a ballet class for an assembly of about 20 students.

Leading the students through warmups, Miroshnyk gave individual attention to the dancers, reminding one to rotate her elbow a few degrees and another to relax his breathing. The class worked through écartés and battements as she exhorted the class to “open up, open up” as they moved. Miroshnyk is also an audition director for the Moscow Ballet, traveling across North America auditioning and training young dancers to perform with professionals in The Great Russian Nutcracker, Swan Lake and Romeo and Juliet.
