We are changing our website. Soon we will return with a new form and design.
September 2010 marked fifteen years of my career as a ballet dancer at the Mariinsky Theatre. For a professional classical ballerina that is a long enough period to understand the difficulties of the profession, to understand the role this kind of art plays in public life and, at the same time, to make a respected name for myself in the ballet world.

And today, using that experience, I would like to say and do something for the arts that amounts to more than just dancing the ballet repertoire. Unfortunately, it is difficult for one person to solve big and serious problems alone.

That is why I have taken the step of setting up the Diana Vishneva Foundation for the Coordinated Development of Ballet which, I hope, will unite organizations’ and individuals’ efforts and abilities to achieve the foundation’s cultural, charitable and creative goals.
