Bolshoi Way program invites young dancers to Moscow summer school


17.07.2021

The Russian American Foundation (RAF) has announced that through its partnership with the U.S. Department of State, Bureau of Educational and Cultural Affairs, it will continue offering the full-scholarship for the highly prestigious NSLI-Y 6-week program for the coming summer from July 17 to August 28. The unique program combines Russian language instruction, cultural immersion, and ballet training with teachers of the Bolshoi Ballet Academy.


RAF was selected for the 12th time as an implementing organization NSLI FOR YOUTH Scholarships to Study Language Abroad Program. Through this program, the U.S. Department of State, Bureau of Educational and Cultural Affairs, provides merit-based scholarships for eligible high school students and recent high school graduates to learn less commonly taught languages in summer and academic-year overseas immersion programs.
The acclaimed full-scholarship program allows RAF to send academically high-achieving students of ballet from the U.S. to Moscow on a unique experience that combines Russian language instruction, cultural immersion, and ballet training at the Bolshoi Ballet Academy. The NSLI FOR YOUTH program recognizes participants’ academic merit and interest in Russian language and culture. No prior Russian language experience is necessary to be considered.

Those who want to participate should visit the Bolshoi Ballet Academy-NSLI website to find out  details on the application process.

Alternative Summer intensives are planned in new York and Connecticut. 2021 Application is NOW OPEN!
