Moscow Ballet Joins INVEST at Russell Sage College
Troy, NY – Russell Sage College’s Incubator for New Ventures in Emerging Sciences and Technologies (INVEST) is pleased to welcome the Moscow Ballet as an artist-entrepreneur in residence within the Esteves Center for Innovation and Entrepreneurship.
The Moscow Ballet brings internationally acclaimed Russian ballet to audiences across North America, while providing opportunities for fine arts enrichment and educational outreach for local communities. Performing 100 engagements each year in major U.S. and Canadian cities, the company entertains tens of thousands during the holiday season with the Nutcracker and other classical repertoire.
This national platform allows Moscow Ballet to share the renowned Russian ballet training with dance lovers of all ages. Each year the dance company organizes workshops, master classes and auditions that touch the lives of thousands of children. This national footprint also allows Moscow Ballet to engage in extensive partnerships with corporations and not-for-profit organizations. With a history of raising millions of dollars over the last 20 years, Moscow Ballet's Great Russian Nutcracker tours have brought awareness and revenue to critically important organizations in the fields of cancer research, hospice, addiction treatment, AIDS treatment and many more.
Esteves Center for Innovation and Entrepreneurship is utilized for a range of business ventures from additional support for the wet-chemistry lab facility to IT, non-tech businesses and micro-enterprises having standard office needs.
