"On behalf of the United States Government, I congratulate A.S.E. Global Bridges* and the Bolshoi Ballet Academy on 15 years of successful partnership. Your collaboration has deepened ties between the U.S. and Russian dance communities and encouraged cross cultural understanding through the arts... Your success demonstrates that the Russian and American people can perform, learn, and thrive side-by-side. I wish you many more years of successful collaboration ahead."
Honorable John J. Sullivan
Former U.S. Ambassador to the Russian Federation, 2022
Thank you to all who participated in VBBASI! We are most grateful to the Bolshoi Ballet Academy, its leadership, teachers, accompanists, and students, who have worked with RAF over the last months to provide a virtual program free of charge to our 2020/2021 enrolled BBASI families.
We hope that you, your families, and your communities stay healthy and safe!
