Promotion in the Bolshoi Ballet

Natalya Osipova and Ivan Vasiliev have been promoted to the rank of premier dancers, they learnt of this in Peking where, at the present time, they are on tour with the Bolshoi Ballet Company. The announcement of this official recognition of their services was made at the end of their performance in Don Quixote — their star turn ballet, which brought the house down in Peking.
The world recognition which has engulfed these two young dancers anticipated their ascent up the career ladder which, even so, was unprecedentedly rapid. In so far as concerns Ivan Vasiliev, he has been promoted straight from First Soloist to Principal Dancer, skipping the intervening rank.
