Modern/ contemporary dance at the Bolshoi

With my modern teacher, Nika Sergeevna

December was a very busy month, starting with our modern exam which upon completion signals the end of our modern classes in the three year diploma course.

The modern exam consisted of some group exercises followed by a series of solos.  It’s uploaded in two parts below.

Nere’s solo is at 8:25 of the part 1 video;

Nastia’s solo is at the start of the part 2 video;

Carlota’s solo is at 2:45 of the part 2 video;

My solo is at 4:28 of the part 2 video;

Romana’s solo is at 6:20 of the part 2 video.
