The Artistic Direcor

As artistic director, Gennadi will present a varied repertory that will reintroduce some of the finest classical and neoclassical works in existence, while also bringing in new works from the most sensational and sought-after choreographers in the world. He will use his vast experience to nurture the Company, helping the dancers achieve the highest level of artistry, and elevate the national and international profile of Atlanta Ballet. In addition to his work with the professional Company, Gennadi will also oversee the Atlanta Ballet Centre for Dance Education led by Dean Sharon Story. He will focus on refining the technique of our student dancers and infusing his world-class training from the Bolshoi and diverse performance background into the curriculum of our Pre-professional Division, which is designed for students who are interested in pursuing dance careers.
