Ukrainian Ballet Gala

Ukrainian Ballet Gala

On the 7th of September 2021 Putrov Productions and I-Do Lab presented Ukrainian Ballet Gala, a unique celebration of the tradition and innovation of Ukrainian culture at Sadler’s Wells London.

Ukraine‘s long history of producing great dancers is alive and flourishing. I was thrilled to be able to introduce them to British audiences alongside some of our finest London-based dancers in this tremendously exciting gala celebrating the tradition and innovation of Ukrainian culture.
