Osipova And Vasiliev Join Ranks Of Ballet-Star-Slash-Impresarios

“It started off as a novelty and now it’s becoming a trend, as Natalia Osipova and Ivan Vasiliev have joined the list of top-flight ballet dancers who are opting to expand their performing (and earning) potential by presenting their own independent projects. In recent years that list has included Darcey Bussell, Carlos Acosta and the all-male Kings of the Dance ensemble, all of whom have moonlighted from their home companies to present and star in programmes of works they’ve personally selected or commissioned.”
