"But, through dance, he found a common language that has expanded with each style he has danced.

“'We didn’t have much time to prepare for it,' Nedvigin said. 'So we decided we would do some of the ballets from previous years and programs that will give you a hint of the direction I would like to take the company. I’m shooting for programs to have traditional works, classical pristine works that will help to communicate to the audience and slowly move them from classical works to more contemporary works.'" - ArtsATL

“'My aesthetic has been formed by the diverse range of choreographers and dancers I’ve worked with and by the diverse range of pieces I’ve performed in my career. Different styles of dance and choreography are like different languages,' he said. 'The more languages you know, the better.'” - 4dancers.org
