International Ballet Gala
- The Dancers: Some of the leading performers from the National Ballet of Ukraine, including Olga Golitsa, Sergey Sidorsky, and Igor Bulychov.
- The Performances: Excerpts from Swan Lake, Don Quixote, Romeo & Juliet, Carmen, Spartacus, and other masterpieces from the ballet canon.
- The Masterminds: Dancers and choreographers Vadim Fedotov and Irina Depler celebrate the 15th anniversary of Ballet Fedotov with a gala that also brings together the Russian Ballet Alafaya, Russian Ballet Orlando, and School of Russian Ballet in Sarasota, all businesses formed by the company.
The performances put on by Ballet Fedotov feature both professional dancers and students of the Russian Academy of Ballet Alafaya. More than 1,500 students have passed through the program, toting with them their slippers, leotards, and tutus. There's equipment a-plenty, but talent's the most plentiful resource here. The Academy's alumni have gone on to perform with institutions as diverse as the Corella Ballet, Cincinnati Ballet, and Disney, while current students pirouette through classes and numerous performances per year.
