Anne Polajenko's: "Carreno Dance Festival Revisited"

       Huge success of the first Carreño Dance Festival.

        Sarasota, Florida, was abuzz with talk following the student performance of the Carreño Dance Festival in August.

      The two week program culminated in a spectacular student showcase, enhanced by performances from modern dance stars Jacoby & Pronk and leading dancers of American Ballet Theater.

A dinner reception followed the performance.

Enjoying the festivities are (left to right): Gennadi Saveliev (ABT soloist and Festival faculty member, Anne Polajenko (Public Relations for So'Dança), Larissa Saveliev ( Artistic Director and co-founder with her husband Gennadi of Youth America Grand Prix), Lisias Ransan (CEO of So'Dança) and Jose Manuel Carreño (recently retired star of ABT and Festival Director).
