Boston Ballet dancers share tips with Mongolian students


Dancers from the renowned Boston Ballet Company in the United States, D.Altankhuyag and Ashley Ellis, have given training advice to dancing students at the Mongolian Music and Dance College. The dancers visited the college during their visit to Mongolia, the main purpose of which was to perform in special performances of Swan Lake at the State Academic Theatre of Opera and Ballet, which took place on Friday and Saturday. Their visit was initiated by Mongolian ballet dancer D.Altankhuyag, the head of the Mongolian Ballet Development Foundation.
D.Altankhuyag presented a lecture at the Mongolian Music and Dance College about how to warm up properly and avoid injuries while training. He told the students that it is possible to overcome any difficulty if one really wishes to learn and improve. His lecture was followed by a special training session in which dancer Ashley Ellis and D.Altankhuyag showed the students how they themselves warm up and train and taught the students about the importance of the correct muscle positions and consistency.
Ninth Grade ballet student M.Telmen said after the training, “D.Altankhuyag explained very clearly and well how important the warm ups and muscle exercises are for dancing. He also said that we should participate in many competitions in order to measure our levels. I am very glad I was able to get a lesson from a famous dancer.”
After the lesson, the Director of the Mongolian Music and Dance College, G.Erdenebat, made a statement in which he promised to support the operations of the Mongolian Ballet Development Foundation.
