FOR SUPPORT THE UKRAINIAN BALLET YOUTH
"Give the Youth in Ukraine hope and future", this was the topic of my talks with Malakhov Foundation of living Ballet Legend Volodimir Malakhov.. We share common ethnic roots, the love the ballet and children - thats a good base - It was a great pleasure for me and I looking forward of further, co-operation to preserrve the art of ballet for our future generations.
In 2014 Vladimir Malakhov founded the "Malakhov Foundation", which is committed to the promotion of art and dance. Every two years will be awarded a European Ballet Prize named after the dancer Marie Taglioni (1804-84), which is characterized by young talents and top performances.
Born in Ukrainian Krivoi Rog, Vladimir Malakhov began his dance education at the age of four at the ballet school of his home town. He is honorary citizen of Kyiv in his homeland and takes over the patronage of the festival of children's and youth choreography there, as well as honorary professor of the Ukrainian Academy of Choreography.
In February 2013, he was awarded the Pushkin medal for cultural achievements. In the summer of the same year he received the title of Honorary Professor of the Beijing Dance Academy. The following year, the Berlin Senate met in Berlin in January 2014.
The Malakhov Foundation grants scholarships, grants allowances and grants for training and medical activities and supports exchange programs and cultural institutions.
Young talents, which we see, do not always get the attention they need to develop optimally. In addition, the Foundation looks after the support of sick dancers.
We would like to mention his former colleague and first soloist Nadja Saidakova, in 2015 about the distress of ballet schoolmakers at the State Ballet School in Kiev, and donated dancing shoes to the dancers and the direction of the Staatsballetts Berlin. In total about 200 pointe shoes from the Staatsballett Berlin, and from the dancers of the company were personally donated and sent by Nadja to the students of the State Ballet School in Kyiv.
