ACB 2021 Annual Krassovska Variations Awards

The Allen Civic Ballet holds an annual variations workshop in memorial of Madame Nathalie Krassovska.

Madame Krassovska was born in Leningrad (now St. Petersburg) in 1919. In 1936, Madame Krassovska joined Ballet Russe de Monte Carlo and quickly attained the rank of Prima Ballerina. She went on to become Prima Ballerina with the London Festival Ballet from 1950-1960, and founded the Krassovska Ballet Jeunesse in Dallas in 1963, to pass the art of classical ballet to the next generations. She served as the Artistic Advisor to the Allen Civic Ballet from its inception in 1999 until her death in 2005.

In recognition of outstanding achievement in the technique and artistry of classical ballet we present the

Nathalie Krassovska Legacy Award to Taverly Cox.

Catharina Moudy was a founding member of our board until her death in 2005, and our very first Sugar Plum Fairy in Allen Civic Ballet’s first Nutcracker in 1999.

In recognition of outstanding achievement in the technique and artistry of classical ballet we present the

Catharina Moudy Spirit of Dance Award to

Ynez Conklin and Mia Heath.

Brynt Beitman danced and partnered with all of the founding board members and was our first Sugar Plum Cavalier until he left to study at Juilliard on full scholarship. After graduation he has worked as a dancer and choreographer in NYC. He has choreographed numerous original contemporary works for the Allen Civic Ballet.

In recognition of outstanding achievement in the technique and artistry of contemporary ballet we present the

Brynt Beitman Award to

Selena Lin and Anna Vieger.
