0

MOSCOW: Russia on Monday (Tuesday in Manila) appointed outspoken ballet star Nikolai Tsiskaridze to head its top dance school after he was dismissed by the Bolshoi in a row over an acid attack on its artistic director. Tsiskaridze, a former principal dancer at the Bolshoi, will head the Vaganova Ballet Academy in Russia’s second city Saint Petersburg—one of the world’s oldest and famed for its impeccable classical technique.
