Stars from the Stuttgart Ballet Company and The Estonian Ballet Company will be performing the classical ‘Pas de Deux’ from the timeless Sleeping Beauty and Nutcracker ballets, respectively. They are also scheduled to perform the cutting-edge contemporary pieces, ‘Little Monsters’ and ‘Time’.

The Gala will also feature locally based Ballerina, Loredana Elena Teodorescu, formerly a principal dancer from The National Bucharest Opera House, performing a ‘Pas de Deux’ with Columbian artist Jose Luis Quiceno from Swan Lake, a ballet that has been recently highly popularized by Hollywood’s box office hit ‘Black Swan’. A troupe from The BNF Dance Company, who hold the World Champion title in Latin Dance, are set to mesmerize the audience with their Tango and Salsa numbers. Furthermore, members of Sharmila Dance will show their versatility and captivate spectators through their performances in Jazz, Hip Hop and Contemporary pieces.
