Life at the Bolshoi Ballet Academy
My name is Tala Lee-Turton and I’m from Barnsley, South Yorkshire, England. In 2012, at the age of 16, I became only the 9th Brit to train at the Bolshoi Ballet Academy, also known as the Moscow State Academy of Choreography, in its 239 year history (established in 1773).
I graduated four years later, at the age of 20, in 2016. I am the third British female student to graduate from the Academy – click here to find out more.
I am now working as a professional ballet dancer for which my Bolshoi training has stood me in good stead! This blog was written during my time at the Bolshoi Ballet Academy in order to share my amazing experiences!
