The mission of
Ballet Ambassadors is to give children and teens in schools, afterschool programs,
and homeless shelters the chance to share the stage with professional dancers in costumed
adaptations of the ballet classics, original ballets, and world dance
We are grateful for generous support from the New York City Department of Cultural Affairs, Materials for the Arts, the New York City Department of Education, Suffolk County BOCES, PN/W BOCES, and individual donors.
Ambassadors under the direction of Sondra Forsyth was privileged to serve the five boroughs of New York City as well as schools in Suffolk and Putnam/Northern Westchester counties from 2000 to 2013. Beginning in 2014, Andrei
Kisselev and Yana Volkova will be carrying on the work in the schools with their own programs.
They were Teaching Artists with Ballet Ambassadors for many years. Read their bios on the"About Us" page. Their email address is Andrei7373@aol.com.
