A way of inspiration.
WHO WE ARE
Ballet.Stage is a trusted platform designed to support and benefit the development of upcoming Ballet Artists, Students or already established Professionals who are looking for ways to truly master their Art, and create improved exposure for themselves with the help of our professional industry experience and worldwide network
Its the true passion of Denis Matvienko who has dedicated his life to world stage Ballet where mastery and perfection for the craft has delivered a Professional Ballet career that is only rarely achieved by Artists around the world. This rewarding career has then sparked a desire to give back and support both Emerging and Professional Artists with their ambitions to succeed
The idea was to activate a valuable industry network that can help put a professional Ballet career within reach for Artists. To be rewarded with a fulfilling life journey that is truly admired on the world stage
HOW WE GOT STARTED
The initial idea for Ballet.Stage was brought to life in February 2022 at a time when war severely displaced Ukrainian Ballet Artists from being able to perform and develop their Art.
Denis, his family, and friends had connected with their industry network and relationships around the world to support all Ukrainian Ballet Artists and Students that had reached out for help
The main objective was to provide support while establishing some much needed trust, confidence, and exposure between the vast impacted Artists and industry Professionals who were all made up of several worldwide valued Artistic Directors, Ballet Artists, Theatre's and related Companies
Onwards for several months until today, the team behind Ballet.Stage has been extending "Pro Bono" assistance to impacted Ballet Artists and Students to help restore some of the life quality that has been frozen for so many
